Nice part about being a host is you can spam your own forum. LOL

Seriously, though, we uploaded this auction last night, and some of you Norse/Gamers might be interested in it.

      
   
The Hammer Of Thor (1980-Rare-Unpunched)
http://tinyurl.com/2r6lzw

You are bidding on a copy of The Hammer of Thor -- a boardgame based on Norse Mythology. Described as "Probably the most comprehensive mythology game ever made, certainly about Norse myths." It includes a game board with stars and circles connected by lines, representing places in Alfheim, Vanaheim, Valhalla, Midgard, and so forth. Play evolves along two phases: adventures in the wilderness to gather forces for Ragnarok, the final battle between good and evil. The player who is on the winning side of this battle who has the highest reputation wins the game. In addition to the character cards, there are card sets representing Offspring, Shape Changing, Magic Items, Forged Magic Items, Fates, Runes, and Predictions. There is also a color map, sheets of charts, sheets for character tracking, counters and a rulebook.

It's a VERY strange game. I never considered it playable, although I know some folks into Northern European Mythology who thought it was fantastic. In fact, I bought the game because one was raving about it. The designer definitely did a lot of research.

I bounced the link to a couple of gamer geeks (including my husband), who immediately went to do research on the game and came up with a lot of reviews that went something like, "The best-researched utterly unplayable game ever!"

Darn good description of the game, IMHO. I hope several people want it bad enough to get into a bidding war.  LOL.
