Description

For several decades during the Viking age, parts of England were occupied by the Norsemen. Under their influence, one of the larger cities turned into a flourishing center of trade and craftsmanship. The Vikings called the city and its surrounding kingdom 'Jórvík', which is today known as the city of York. In Jórvík, players assume the roles of Viking jarls. They gather prestige points by trading goods, holding big feasts, funding pillages, commissioning craftsmen, and hiring soldiers to defend the city against recurring invasions. They do so by acuiring cards from ta card display through a simple yet brilliant worker placement and bidding mechanism, building up their trading empires. The player with the most prestige oints wins.

Jórvík is a re-design 'Die Speicherstadt' (2010). Jórvík includes two versions: A base game that is equivalent to 'Die Speicherstadt', and an advanced game that adds in the mechanics of the original expansion 'Kaispeicher'. Jórvík is designed by Stefan Feld.
