Use a Hex map. Units are represented by counters. The Viking
villages are located on seperate Islands north of the mainland. Draw
only the contours of the landmasses. The contents will be determined
by the Exploration Table. Be sure to include several Bays and rivers
that penetrate into the mainland. Viking Villages must be adjacent
to water for the construction of ships.

Each unit has an attack value. Add these to get each sides attack total.
Each side rolls dice equal to their attack total.
Each roll of 1 causes 1 casualty.
Walls are the first casualties.
Looting is done at the end of the battle if there are no defenders left.
1 Ship per hex. Up to 10 Vikings per hex.
A stack of units is known as a raiding party.
The chieftan is the last unit in a hex to be killed.
If killed, any one nonship unit that player controls becomes the next chieftan.
Peasants are killed before Men at Arms, and Men at Arms are killed
before Knights. If both sides kill each other off, the settlement
wins. Settlements can only replenish or rebuild if no Vikings are
adjacent. If a settlement won a battle but suffered casualties,
those loses will be replenished at the end of the turn.
