We wanted to play a game, so he had this for two players. We probably played the worst game of Vikings ever (I am no expert but we were not playing good).

Cool game though too bad it is out of print I would definitely sell this at my store.

I love this game, but this was one of those games that I decided to let my brain take the day off. I like to rush churches but just could not make it happen this game, though I was first Todd was in a much better position to finance because he was the only on in Sugar Factories and Michael and I were both in Sugar Colonies. I was relying on Brooke to pick up some factories so I could play behind her, but I guess she didn't see things that way aka Todd ended up with all 7 Sugar Factories.

So strangely enough he won.

The bottom line is this was a MEAN euro game. I don't know if its a good euro game, but it was pretty mean to play which made it a lot less fun. the theme is so tacked on as well. I really tried hard to RP this game but I felt like a backstabbing cohort of the vacation isle mafia. So if this got re-themed as a mafia game I think it would be doing a whole lot better.

Whats the best is that I lost because I misplayed 5 times on my last turn which consequently lost me the game . . . I have a tendency to do well at euros that I hate.

On top of it we played for 3 and a half hours. There's a lot to think about because there is a lot of backward thinking in that you have to break down who is going to bid for actions.

It's not a horrible game, it's just not a place I want to visit again.
