Description Edit | History

Yggdrasil is a co-operative game in which players are different gods of the Norse mythology: Odin, Thor, Tyr, Frey, Heimdall and Frejya. Monsters, the wolf Fenrir, the huge serpent Jormungand, the Fire Giant Surt, the Goddess of the Dead Hel, the traitor Loki and the cosmic dragon Nidhogg are moving forward in Asgard inescapably and announce the impending coming of chaos and destruction on the world tree Yggdrasil. Together the players have to resist to the impending coming of the Evil forces in Asgard, the gods' world.

Game flow
During his turn, the active player first draws an Enemy card, corresponding to one of the six Evil creatures. The corresponding counter is moved one space forward in Asgard and the associated effect applies. Then the active player performs three different actions among the nine at his disposal in order to resist to the advance:

  • Ask for the Elves' help
  • Get a Weapon from the Dwarves
  • Send the Valkyries looking for Vikings' souls on the mankind world Midgard
  • Fight the Giants and try to gather the parts of a magic rune
  • Negotiate with the Vanir
  • Get rid of the Fire Giants who invade Midgard
  • Get the Vikings back from Hel's world
  • Exchange forces with another god
  • Fight against the Enemies in Asgard

Each player, depending on the god he plays, has a specific power that allows him to perform some actions better. All of these actions have to be used in the right moment or the victory will be unreachable. The players will need cleverness, calm and team spirit to challenge the game.

5 Yggdrasil bag tags
It's easy to confuse top (opening) and bottom sides of bags due to the poor distinguishablity. Picking up a bag upside down could be disastrous - tokens will pour out. Print, cut and paste these tags to the 4 Yggdrasil bags to avoid these. They also improve representability of the game. 4 action tokens are also included to mark your actions taken.

23 Yggdrasil player aid
Player aid which describes what all of the icons are in the game. I originally planned to fit everything onto one page, but now, it's below 2 pages. Last but not least, this won't look as nice if I used color, but at least it's functional for those who only have black & white printers. Microsoft Word format allows each user to customize layout and content.
