Players take turns drawing a card from a deck of 120 cards of Vikings throwing Axes, Vikings with Shields, an Armory and a Wench. After drawing a card, the player may throw the Axe(s) at another player or use the wench against another player; place an armory or shields in front of them to help or protect them; or discard the card if it cannot be played. Once a player has been ?hit? by 10 Axes, they are out. The last player standing is the winner.
Viking Games can be played almost anywhere and adapted to meet the needs, age, or skill of the players involved. With young players the rules can be simplified so the game is easy and engaging (kids learn to count, make sets and understand cause and effect). With older players new rules may be added for more complex game play, such as, ?any person who is out may rejoin after one round.?
