After all players have played all of the Viking Cards from their hands, the era is over. If it is the end of Era 3, the game is over and the players proceed to Final Scoring (see Scoring). If not, discard all of the played Viking Cards from players’ rows (not Invader Cards) to the discard pile and then move the Raven down to the next space on its track (on the Era Mat).
Pass the Chieftain Marker to the player who has the most Island Runes—that player takes the first turn of the new era. If there is a tie for the most, the marker is given to the tied player latest in the previous era’s turn order.
