In the Name of Odin is a strategy game for 2-5 players, each with a claim to become the new Jarl.

During the game each player will expend Action Cards to construct new buildings in their village, gather companions, recruit famous Vikings and build longships, that will carry them to fame and glory.

In the Name of Odin is an optimization race. As ambitious Northmen you are trying to prove yourself as cunning leaders and bold raiders to gain the most Fame before the game’s inevitable end. To do that you will go on Raids. Each Raid is a card that (depending on its position on the board) requires a longship of certain range to reach, a combination of three types of Vikings under your banner, and a famous persona to lead the expedition. It means you will have to gather or build all these elements and turn them in to claim the Raid card and score its Fame value.

Each turn you will perform actions by expending Action Cards from your hand. Each of those cards carries two symbols: one with a Viking group (Warrior, Trader or Sailor), and one with an action type. At the end of each round you will draw cards to refill your hand, so that you’re able to think of your next moves while other players act.

Expending an Action Card means discarding it and choosing a Viking or action symbol. Viking symbols allow you to recruit shield-brothers – and the more of a single type you expend, the more Vikings will join you. The action icons allow you to build new structures or ships and to make a powerful ally – a Viking Hero who will join you on a Raid, or lend their special ability during time spend on land.

In the Name of Odin plays fast, minimizes the downtime by limiting the immediate choices available during a given turn, and giving players full knowledge of what they will be able to make use of during their next activation. And although it is a game about the ruthless Norsemen, it does not introduce any direct, negative interaction.

In the Name of Odin is a game for 2-5 players, average game time 60 minutes and recommended for ages 14+
