This is a AOEII Scenario take the Vikings from their Island rock to rule the British Isles. Greemland and Iceland. Defeat the Britons and the Celts, establish diplomatic ties or conquest of the Franks and the Tuitons. You start alone only you have three bases to start from. The Isle of Man, Denmark, and Norway.
This is a Build and Destroy Real Time Strategy with Diplomatic and Trade aspects.
Player 1 is Viking with outposts on the Isle of Man, Norway and Denmark. The map is quite attractive and it shows Britain, Isle of Man, Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, Denmark, Norway, France and Germany. The objective is to destroy or ally with everybody on the map. Since it’s hard to get all the countries onto a map like this, the land ends up being a little pinched. If you build 5 or 6 buildings you will fill up Denmark. A trebuchet can fire all the way from the Atlantic to the other side of Denmark. There is a river on the map running south through Germany and when I tried to send my trade cogs down to trade with France, they couldn’t squeeze past the docks that had been built spanning the narrow river. The French fleet and the German fleet got bottled up behind their own docks and couldn’t break out to sea. I never did succeed in getting them to ally with me in spite of tributing them 1000 gold, but maybe if I had kept playing the game longer they would have come around.
This is worth a download especially if you like trading and diplomacy mixed in with blowing things up.

True there wasnt enough space but ive always loved how so many people colided in the British Isles. France, Germany, England, Ireland, Scotland and the Vikings so this map just the thing for me.
