As a primarily solitaire player, I have found that I really like having a range of "win levels" to compare my scores against, rather than just trying to beat my own highest score. What I mean by this is something along the lines of, e.g.: 90-99: You're finally beginning to learn Viking ways; 100-109: You have attained full Viking status; 110-119: You have now been acclaimed as a true Viking Warrior; ...and so on.

So -- has anyone more experienced with this great game come up with a viable range of such "win levels"? I'm still "learning Viking ways," so I'm not yet clear on what the optimal ranges of scores (nor the best Viking-themed descriptors for each range) would be.

The rule book states that a score of 100 in the solo long game is a good score, so you could use that as a baseline I suppose. My first solo game was 45, my second solo game was 84. My third game was a 4-player game where I scored 96. I've gotten better every game, but I haven't broken 100 yet whether solo or multiplayer. In the four player game I played the winner got 136 points, so that's the best score I've seen thus far. It was his 11th game.

Good idea! We should differentiate between long and short games too (long being easier to score higher). My first long solo game, I scored 95.

I've started short-commenting all my plays of this game.

I'd really encourage everyone to get three plays in (with some Exploration boards) before they decide the game is flat, lacks pressure, or is impossible.

Remember, we all started with terrible scores!
