Odin has promised a place in Valhallalala to whichever band gives the greatest rock concert of all time !!! Four bands of vikings can really rock, but they don’t have any fans. « By Thǿr’s Hammer, that can’t be ! We will have to rock them with some sick beats !!! Mouåhåhå »
RagnaRok Star is a strategy board game mixing programming and collecting fans.
Full of humour and allusions to rock culture and viking mythology. Fun to program leading to many interactions between players. Simultaneous programming and resolutions (no waiting time).
Each player get a tablet of his band with an erasable marker. This tablet has 5 musicians and each one has specific capacities : collect or steal fans, protect the drakkar, navigate …
You prefer to attack, defend or play as a kamikaze ? Imagine a plan, program it on your tablet and discover if everything runs as expected … or not !
When game finishes, count your glory points ⭐️, depending on the amount of fans in your concert hall and on the contracts you did.
The band with the highest score is called by Odin. The victorious band navigate with his drakkar on Odin’s mythical guitar to ÁsgardRock for the most powerful concert of RagnaRok !
If two players have the same Glory score, fix it with a fight of Air Guitar !

Direction artistique magnifique, mécaniques très faciles à appréhender même pour de jeunes joueurs, beaucoup d'interactions, j'adore !!
A programming collection game. "Colt Express" is more fun. Here, we are just sailing from place A to B to C to D (and wildly mixed) to.... pickup some metal fans and put them into your hall. Rinse and repeat. Wow. There is nothing more special to add. The theme rocks. But even as metal fan, I had to sell it again.
I'm not a big fan of programming mechanics, but this one does it well (with the expansions thrown in). Rules clarity is lacking.
