Pandasaurus Games is excited to be teaming up with Bombyx to bring Knarr to the United States!
If you've heard of Knarr, it may be because it took the Board Game Geek Hotness List by storm in October! It was one of the hottest games of Essen SPIEL, praised for its quick, simple, and satisfying gameplay.
"This is a winner. I really, really enjoy it. Great game to bring to the table." -Zee Garcia
"Feeling unique, doing some clever things without a lot of expert rules." -Mike DiLisio
Additionally, Jamey Stegmaier highlights Knarr in one of his videos as he talks about one of his famous mechanisms: dual engine building.
In Knarr, you are the leader of a band of Vikings. Manage the recruitment of your crew and choose the best territories to explore. Depending on the destinations reached (for trading or influence), and the Vikings who accompany you, you can increase your reputation to gain even more wealth.
Each turn, you:
- Place a new member in your Viking crew, activate the effects of all of them with the same color, and get another one from those available under the matching color on the central board, or
- Explore new destinations, with the opportunity to trade with those places and get more gains or reputation.
End game is triggered when one player reaches 40 points. The current round is finished and the player with the most points wins!
Prefer to drive it before you buy it? You can play Knarr for free on Board Game Arena!
