The Tabletop Spotlight is on A Feast for Odin!

Our buddies over at Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy brought over A Feast for Odin and I was pleasantly surprised:

The basics of the game are pretty cool – you’re in charge of your Norse village and you have to go trade/hunt/raid/pillage/plunder your way to victory. It’s kind of a worker placement game but there is more to it than that. What I really liked about this game is that there are multiple ways to win. If you’re familiar with game theory or game design then you’ve probably heard of “Dominate¬†Strategies” and how they aren’t good for replay value. This game does a great job of combating that – which means each time you play you might have to modify your style to fit what the other players are doing.

For a game about creating a feast it also plays fairly quick with most games taking about 30 minutes. It’s fun game to play with kids and non-gamer friends, really anyone can get the hang of this one pretty quick. But again, because there are different ways to accumulate points the game has a surprising amount of depth. So if you’re looking for a game that you can play with your family over the holidays then check out A Feast for Odin – in stores now!
