Can you use favor tokens to reroll when hunting, or just battles?

Michael's right.

There is no glory in using great viking warriors to go hunting for food.
Send those warriors off to battle!


ps. I rolled 6 die the other day while hunting and rolled all blanks. shake

Hunting seems like a pretty secondary, "sprinkles on top" kind of action.

I had the same thing happen with me, and it was one of the rare table flipping moments.

Does anyone know what the faces of the dice are?

The Swordsman (white) have a face with 1 hit, a face with 2 hits and a face with a shield

The Spearmen (red) have 2 faces with 1 hit, a face with 2 hits and a face with a shield

The Axemen (black) have 2 face each of 1 & 2 hits

Interesting, so when it comes to rolling for a successful hit,

White dice = 33%
Red dice = 50%
Black dice = 66%

Chance to block.

White dice = 16%
Red dice = 16%
Black dice = 0%

Chance to roll blank.

White dice 50%
Red dice = 66%
Black dice = 66%

Come on, swordsman... what's your deal?

It's by design. The swordsmen are the easiest to get.

Indeed. It was a poor attempt at humor, on my part, apparently.

The board shows the hunting grounds as red to indicate that it is a combat area. So my vote is for yes you can.

I agree, not because of the color but mostly because it makes sense.

hunting already is a pretty unlucky endeavor. and don't hunters prey to find food ?

Any time the dice are rolled, a favor may be used to reroll - hunting included.

Hi Josh, does Ullr's ability activate if rolling doubles while hunting?

I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks.

I'm not Josh, but I'll answer for him. Ullr's player board says that his ability doesn't apply to hunting.
