Set up

place 8 piles of 9 tiles.

1 on the first small scoring round
1 next to the first small scoring round

1 on the first big scoring round

1 on the second small scoring round
1 next to the second small scoring round

1 on the second big scoring round

1 on the final small scoring round

1 on the final big scoring round

Place tiles as in basic game, islands from zero, ships from 11. You will have a gap of 3 spaces on the wheel. Place viking as normal, one behind each tile. Play as normal but when there is one tile left, discard it and replace viking in bag. this is the end of round one. Continue for 6 rounds. Then take the 6 discards and shuffle them back into the final two piles, 3 into each. Then play the final 2 rounds as in the normal basic game.

scoring

No scoring at the end of round one.
small scoring at end of round 2
big scoring at the end of round 3
No scoring at the end of round 4
small scoring at the end of round 5
big scoring at the end of round 6
small scoring at the end of round 7
big scoring followed by end scoring at end of round 8

Makes for a very fair and balanced 4 player game. Have fun!
