Description Edit | History

In Norse legend, Freya, the goddess of fertility and passion, owed at least part of her reputation for irresistable beauty to an enchanting necklace - the Brisingamen.

You are a dwarf craftsman making jewelery of silver and precious gems. Use your team of dwarfs to mine jewels and set these into settings of fine silver which you can sell to earn prestige among your peers. Of course the grander the jewelery, the greater the prestige, but you have a quota to fill so you must work quickly. Various magical potions and abilities are available through the black market to aid you but you will need to use them wisely. Finish the Brisingamen for Frey and her favours will bring even more prestige than the finest jewelry.

==============

Send your dwarfs racing into the mine to collect jewels with an interesting leap frog action that has them moving fastest when they work together. Once you get some jewels you can complete a piece of the Brisingamen or get a Setting card to create another piece of jewelry. Work on the Brisingamen and Freya rewards you with Free Action tokens that you can use for extra actions or for victory points. Ability cards let your dwarfs move faster, whisk jewels out of the mine, block other player's dwarfs or steal jewels.

1 Freya's Folly Player Boards
I am attempting to play all the games in my collection (solitaire) to learn the rules and hopefully bring them to the table in my gaming group. Freya's Folly is a simple strategy game - the single deck variant in the forum looks very interesting - but it seems to me that there is a lot of game parts stored in areas away from the board. For example, Brisingamen cards are stored in a 'Brisingamen area' until they are completed and only then placed on the board. Another example occurs when a dwarf successfully exits the mine; his treasure is taken from the barrow on the player mat and put in a players' 'Home area'. I decided to create a number of player 'boards' to store all these cards, jewels, Ability Markers, Free Action Tokens, and so on. There are two files which contain all the...
