While Nidavellir may not be the strongest themed game around, I have to say I've really enjoyed playing. I like the fact that there are different avenues to pursue in order to score the highest bravery and the ability to trade in coins to the Royal Treasury makes for a nice gameplay wrinkle. Those who are extremely math adverse might find keeping track of who might have the lead tricky but there is a handy app you can use for final game scoring. The component quality is pretty good overall, although I do recommend sleeving the cards. A couple of the gang weren't as high on Nidavellir as I am but I think the game is a winner!
