Dedicating a Village is an optional action.
After playing a Viking Card (either faceup or facedown) and resolving Leader/Rune Actions, you may dedicate one Village to the gods —taking a Village you have raided and placing it onto a Dedication Action:
• One of the 4 Actions on the right side of the Era Mat.
• On each God Mat, you can increase that god’s Fury by 2.
You then perform that action. However, there is a limit to how many times each Dedication Action can be performed, equal to the number of players . Stack new dedicated Villages on top of previously placed ones. Once the number of Villages in the stack matches the player count, that action can no longer be used.
Note: each player can only dedicate 1 Village per turn.
