The interactive map below provides a suggested set up for the A Feast For Odin Board Game. The game consists of four main sections: the upper right which includes animal pastures, fields and fishing spaces; the middle right which consists of mountain piles and logging sites; the lower right with weaving, smithing, farming and trading sites; and the left bank with stables, bronze casting pits, toolmakers, boats/ships and your Valhalla. Note that it is not necessary to fill all of these sections out at once as players will be able to expand as they collect enough resources. Here are some key notes about each section’s performance:
• Animal Pastures: In order to increase your herd (sheep, oxen or horses), you must have an animal pasture which requires two adjacent field space tiles.
• Fields: These tiles produce grain for points at harvest time.
• Fishing Spots: Through successful fishing trips you will gain food that can also be used for trading points when delivered to Valhalla.
• Mountain Piles & Logging Sites: Mining metal through your donkey mines grants you rewards but if you want to log trees you must build a logging site first.
• Weaving & Smithing Sites: Weave cloth at these sites or create items in your furnaces using ore collected from mountain piles.
• Farming Sites & Trading Spaces: At your farmyard tile each rotation you get one type of food depending on season while trading sheep gives wood or food ” depending on the season – in return for VP’s and special Rewards cards from Valhalla.
• Stables: Visit these sites to breed livestock and switch out breeding pairs for random outcomes that improve properties and gain VPs as well as resources such as raising sheep for wool or horsehair Bags worth VP’s.
• Bronze Casting Pits & Toolmakers’ Shops: Receive bronze by collecting 3 pieces of ore at bronze casting pits before having it made into tools at the toolmaker shops for bonus rewards.
• Boats/Ships Shipyards with sailing vessels grant more opportunities to access distant islands in search of rare goods ” but only if equipped by appropriate crews!
By visiting a marketplace early on, players can buy additional ships allowing up to 2 islands to visit per voyage!
One expansion that can be added to the Feast for Odin Board Game Rules is the Expansion Set. This expansion adds five new island tiles, ten new tribal tiles, and four extended boards. In addition, this set includes new materials such as clay tokens, textile tokens, wooden tokens, and animal breeding rules. Furthermore, the Expansion Set includes over 30 new occupations and 13 different types of ships which can be used in combination with the original pieces from the base game.
Another setup to consider is the Strategy Cards Expansion Pack. These additional cards add complexity to your game by allowing you to draft actions across multiple trading rounds. Each player receives eight “normal” strategy cards and two additional special cards at the start of each game round which allow them to gain extra benefits if certain conditions are met.
Additionally, players could also add Religion & Conquer expansion packs which expand the number of religious activities available in Feast for Odin Boards Game Rules such as expanded shrine and temple options as well as specialised deity events.
