I can't help but wonder if it was fancy button from a king's robe instead of a game piece.

Lol, that would be a letdown. Still interesting, though!

Lol. Good question.

This just makes Vikings even more cool. I like to imagine this is a really cool first player moose from A Feast for Odin

Pretty fancy for a board game. Component quality: excellent.

But, does it help or detract from gameplay?

It was a Kickstarter exclusive.

Lol

And, if the first player lost, he just might have started kicking pretty hard....

Of course, Kickstarter meant something different in those days.

Still had more to do with the physical component than with actual game play.
