So I got this wacky idea, as I tend to like games with a bit more player interaction: what if you allow players to trade stuff between each other while in the worker placement phase?
Things open for trade and negotiation would be:
- viking dice
- favor tokens
- rune cards (as long as they are unused)
- even boats (max 1 boat / player)
What do you think?
Ps. Also posted this on BGG to get more feedback.
