Take a trip to the Cyclades archipelago
Take a trip to the Cyclades archipelago during the golden age of ancient Greece. Recruit troops, build ships, erect fortresses, build metropolises, summon mythological beings and pray for help to the Gods of Olympus. The struggle to bring your people to their greatest glory will become legend. Cyclady is a 90-minute game where players will be able to develop their Greek city-states while fiercely competing and fighting each other.
You will have to take care of the economy, army, navy, science and religion, all in a simple and exciting way. In order to be able to develop any of the spheres of your country in a given turn, you need to win the favor of the appropriate god, which is done in an interestingly constructed and exciting auction. The gods also allow you to perform actions appropriate for their sphere of influence. If a player wants to develop militarily or attack other players, he must win the favor of Ares. If he wants to develop philosophy, he has to bid for Athena's favor.
The game is won by the player who has 2 metropolises first, but they can be won by conquest, development of philosophy and traditional construction. The game is beautifully presented and combines the simplicity of the rules with the sophistication of the gameplay.
