Gamle Erik, which is what people called the Devil in Denmark in past centuries, is pursuing the badger Vogter, the embodiment of the soul of the forest. Help Vogter gather enough allies to defeat all the evil minions Gamle Erik has brought on this hunt. But beware! All of Vogter’s potential allies have (as often described in Danish folktales) a dark connection to the Devil, and recruiting an ally may have dire consequences…
Each turn in Skoventyr, you either play an ally (to increase the strength of your party in order to defeat a minion), discard an ally (to benefit from its special power), or add an ally to your hand. Since this last action is “paid” by weakening your position on the board, managing how and when to pay the cost of your allies will be crucial!
You must defeat all of Erik’s minions before he catches Vogter.
