Don't Fall in the Mead Hall

A drinking game for Vikings. A Viking game for drinking.

Not all of the stereotypes about Vikings were true. They were more settlers than they were raiders, for instance. They bathed more than most of their European peers, and were quite fond of jewelry and fancy duds. One thing continues to hold true though. They loved to party, and would often hold feasts in mead halls (community longhouses) that lasted many days. The primary drink at these feasts was mead (honey wine or beer), and competitions were held to see who could hold their drink the longest while remaining standing and spouting poetry eloquently (yes, Vikings were some of the earliest poets).

Now you can re-imagine this experience in your own home or mead hall! The premise of this fast-paced game is simple, but is brimming with strategic potential. Each player controls a table of Vikings. These Vikings will drink, fight, throw things, drink some more, and fight some more. Strategic alliances will be formed and broken. Toasts (skål!) will be made. Soon the floor will be littered with bodies of Vikings that couldn’t hold their mead or please Odin in a fight. 

So grab your drinking horns and make Bragi and Aegir proud. Drink, fight, sing, recite poetry, and toast your fellow drinkers. But beware, don't fall in the mead hall or you will be thrown out and branded a weak-livered milk drinker! 

This game is very easy to learn and fun to master. Great for social gatherings. Incorporating your own drink adds its own element but isn’t necessary. Recommended for 3-4 players but for two-player games, we suggest taking turns controlling a table of Viking dummies. 

Contains small parts for easy traveling (but not for swallowing!). Bring it with you wherever you go and play it anywhere.

Review from Jessica Trebling of AleHorn.com

No fancy ratings, no pros/cons – just one simple fact: This game is going into my regular rotation. Its small size means I can stash it in a backpack with my current portable go-to, Love Letter, to share with faraway friends and family. I can see long nights of gaming on vacation this summer while taking long drafts out of my horn. (The game would be easier to pack than my horn, I might add.)

I say this game is simple, and I’m going to emphasize that point again – but only because it’s one of my top requirements. It’s quick to learn, it’s fast paced, it’s straightforward, but it’s also a ton of fun and leaves no time to be bored.

It’s also different, well-thought-out, and makes it pretty easy to imagine that Vikings could have actually played a board game like this. In other words, it’s pretty timeless.

Great drinking game! Make your friends take shots in the game and in real life. Getting drunk and role playing as a viking is a good time.

Pretty fun. It really sets the atmosphere of being in a bar drinking. Or as they call it, Mead Hall.

During a D&D break we decided to spend some time drinking in the mead hall. Was easy to play and fun. A nice break from over thinking games that take forever.

Fun new game. Fast paced, easy to learn, novel idea. Great game to play at home or around a campfire, eating turkey legs, drinking mead with fellow vikings. Good travel size game.
