High quality game

I ordered this game last minute for the family for Christmas and it was despatched earlier than predicted and arrived the next day, incredible service (& with a free choccy gift & latest issue, fantastic!) The game itself is incredibly high quality, beautiful colourful thick boards and counters, in a quality, compact box, bright & clear plastic 'crystals', and instructions in an Icelandic pamphlet and an English one (good practice for those of us trying to learn the beautiful language!) The instructions seem a little complicated at first read but once you start playing it quickly becomes clear. We just played it in a straightforward way, there is probably more strategy you can apply during gameplay once you're more familiar with it, aiming to wind up with a higher score at the end. My daughter who had initially looked blankly at me as I tried to explain it ended up enjoying it and consented to play again! My only disappointment was that I think it was implied there was an explanation of the runes in the instructions but there wasn't. The staves on the coins were explained, and there was a runic alphabet shown (without names/explanations), apparently an Icelandic one based on the Younger Fuþark, but I couldn't find it matched anywhere on the web, and the individual runes on the dice aren't explained, and one of them, a square on its point with a staff coming out the top of it (like an upside down traffic sign!) I couldn't find anywhere at all, unless it's a combination of two runes...but it would have been nice to have known this and to be able to learn and use their correct names and know their meanings. But that ****** aside, it's a great game and we're really pleased with it!
