Players first explore and discover the area near the rugged and irregular fjords. Each is seeking the valuable farmlands, which are scarce, as they are squeezed between the mountains and the sea. As they explore the area, each establishes farms on some farmland sections to serve as bases for later cultivation. After the entire area has been discovered, the players claim the farmlands near their farms. When it is all over, the player with the most farmland is the winner!
