Scenario 6: "Take A Hike"



Previously on "Vikings"...

"Vikings are hungry!" they said. "You can never have too much food!" they said. In fact they were wrong, and we cooked so much we had leftovers for everyone. In retrospect, maybe we should have spent a bit of time on other things. We sure didn't accomplish much stuck in the kitchen. Still, the Gargantuan Greenland Gala was overall a delicious success.

It was also a very fattening success, and some of us decided we needed some serious exercise to maintain our fit and hardy Viking reputation. Faroe Island is only a thousand miles or so away, and the view from Slættaratindur should be lovely this time of year. From there, who knows what other mountains we may climb before we return home? The chief said something about running an errand on the way back, but we were nodding off after the big meal and didn't quite hear where. Hopefully he'll understand if we get distracted by all this natural beauty and have no time for a side trip.


Rule(s):


For this scenario, dice rolls are random and weapon decks are random.
A starting occupation and 20 normal occupations have been selected for everyone.

1. Set up the solo long game as normal. Any rules from the last scenario are reset.
2. Take the starting occupation shown below.
3. Instead of randomly drawing mountain strips, you control the order in which they are revealed. This includes the 2 starting strips. You can look at unused mountain strips at any time to plan future turns.
4. You MUST explore Faroe Island during the game. If you want, you MAY also explore 1 other island. This means you will finish the game with either 1 or 2 islands explored.
5. If you are doing the blind challenge, click "Reveal Next Card" whenever you need to draw an occupation card.
6. Otherwise, click "Reveal All". The top of the list is the top of your deck.


Starting occupation note: Because of a ruling on action effect triggers (https://boardgamegeek.com/article/24371562#24371562), I interpret Woodcutter as only triggering from board effects, NOT card effects.


Starting Occupation(s):

If more than one are shown, choose one.

Card Points Description Type
Woodcutter (154 a) 2 In the Actions phase (phase 5) of each round, if you receive at least 2 wood from a Viking action, you also receive 1 silver. You can only use this effect once per action. (This effect does also apply to the action space providing 1 wood per player and 1 ore from the general supply, but not to the Bonus phase.) Each Time



Occupation Deck:

The top of the list is the top of your deck.

If you wish to do the optional blind challenge for your first game, click "Reveal Next Card" each time you need to draw.
If you have finished the blind challenge or want to skip it, click "Reveal All" below the table.





Card Points Description Type
Wanderer (95 A) 1 In the Harvest phase (phase 2) of each round with no harvest, you can take a "Take 2 Building Resources from a Mountain Strip" action. (As usual, the "2 silver" are considered a single item.) Each Time
Mountain Guard (122 A) 0 Each time you use an action space with the "Take Building Resources from One or More Mountain Strips" action, you can receive 1 additional good. If you took goods of 2 different types (like ore and silver), you receive 1 mead. If you took goods of 3 or 4 different types, you receive 1 hide or 1 chest, respectively. (The 4 different types would be wood, stone, ore, and silver.) Each Time
Stone Carver (6 B) 1 With each stone you take from a mountain strip (into your supply), you also receive 1 silver. Each Time
Carpenter (121 B) 0 Immediately before each time you use an "Ship Building" or "House Building" action space, you can take a "Take 1 Building Resource from a Mountain Strip" action. (As usual, the "2 silver" are considered a single item.) Each Time
Digger (128 A) 2 Each time you take a "Laying a Snare" action (on an action space or via an occupation), if you succeed, you receive a "Take 1 Building Resource from a Mountain Strip" action. (As usual, the "2 silver" are considered a single item.) Each Time
Punchcutter (173 B) 1 Each time 1 ore and 2 silver are removed from a mountain strip during the Mountain Strips phase (phase 11), you receive 1 silver and 2 silver, respectively. Each Time
Forest Blacksmith (103 C) 3 Immediately before each time you exchange 1 ore on the action space that lets you exchange 1 wood/ore for 1 chest and 1 silver, you can take a "Take 1 Building Resource from a Mountain Strip" action. (This does not apply if you exchange 1 wood.) This effect also applies to the action space that lets you exchange 1 ore for a blue good with a "forge tongs" symbol. (As usual, the "2 silver" on the mountain strips are considered a single item. Tip: enclose the ore space on your home board as soon as possible.) Each Time
Breeder (79 A) 1 When you play this card, you can immediately (and only once via this card) turn 1 non-pregnant cattle in your cattle stable to the "pregnant cattle" side. (This is not considered an Animal Breeding phase.) Immediate
Furrier (3 A) 1 Each time you use an action space providing exactly 1 silver (among other things), you also receive 1 snare weapon card. This applies to eight action spaces on the game board (4x Weekly Market, 2x Crafting, 2x Occupation), but does not apply to action spaces for which you receive a bonus silver via one of your occupations. Look through the discard pile (or the draw pile, if need be) and take the weapon card from there. Each Time
Etiquette Teacher (176 B) 3 Immediately after each time you take an action in which you play at least 1 occupation (on an action space or via an occupation), you receive 1 peas. Each Time
Sponsor (184 C) 0 When you play this card, if you have at least 3 ore in your supply, you can immediately (and only once via this card) buy 1 longship for either 4 wood or 3 silver. (This is not considered a "Ship Building" action.) You must immediately place 3 ore from your supply on the longship. (If you have fewer than 3 ore, you cannot use this card.) Immediate
Quartermaster (81 C) 2 When you play this card, you can immediately (and only once via this card) buy a longship. If you do, you receive a discount of 1 silver for each long sword you have, counting each "bow and arrow" and "spear" weapon card as half of a long sword. Round the final cost down, if need be. Immediate
Fisherman (27 A) 1 When you play this card, you immediately (and only once via this card) receive 1 stockfish for each whaling boat you have (so at most 3 stockfish). (The amount of ore on the whaling boats does not matter.) Immediate
Chronicler (187 B) 2 Each time you take a Viking action (in phase 5), you can also pay 2 flax to take the "Belt" special tile (unless another player already owns it). At any time and any number of times, you can exchange 3 flax for 1 treasure chest. Anytime
Modifier (39 C) 2 At any time and any number of times, you can return ore from your whaling boats and longships to your supply. (Of course, you cannot remove the preprinted ore on your boats.) Anytime
Adventurer (107 B) 1 Each time you use the "Exploring the Shetland or Faroe Islands" action space, instead of taking the Shetland or Faroe Islands, you can take any other face-up exploration board. Regardless of your choice, the exploration requires a ship of any type, e.g., a whaling boat. Each Time
Treasurer (55 C) 2 At any time and any number of times, you can pay 3 silver to exchange 1 chest in your supply for 1 treasure chest. Anytime
Snare Specialist (130 C) 1 Immediately after each time you use the "Laying a Snare" action space with 2 Vikings, if you succeed, you can discard 2 snares to return 1 of the placed Vikings to your Thing Square and use it again later this round. (Effectively, you only end up losing 1 snare, as you receive 1 snare as a reward.) Each Time
Armed Fighter (164 A) 3 Immediately before each time you place 4 Vikings in the fourth column, you can take a "Take 1 Building Resource" action to take 1 stone or 1 ore only. Each Time
Linen Weaver (59 A) 0 At any time and any number of times, you can pay 2 flax from your supply and 1 silver to receive 2 linen. Anytime
