Description Edit | History

In this latest collaboration between Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc, players must buy the favor of the gods in their race to be the first player to build two cities in the Ancient Greek island group known as the Cyclades.

Victory requires respect for all the gods - players cannot afford to sacrifice to only one god, but must pay homage to each of five gods in turn. Each turn, the players bid for the favors of the gods, as only one player can have the favor of each god per turn - and each player is also limited to the favor of a single god per turn.

  • Ares allows the movement of player armies and the building of Fortresses.
  • Poseidon allows players to move their navies and build Ports.
  • Zeus allows his followers to hire priests and build temples.
  • Athena provides her worshipers with philosophers and universities.
  • Apollo increases the income of his worshipers.

5 Alternative Philosopher Cards with unique philosohers
Cyclades is a beautifully produced game, with wonderful components, unique in every way. A lot of effort has gone into the presentation of the game But in one way I think it is lacking. The philosopher cards are really boring, just being copies of a generic man pondering. I have therefore made a new set of cards, as I just could not bear to play without having unique cards for Plato, Aristotle and Socrates, and wish to share them with you copyright free. The philosophers all come from Raphael's painting "The School of Athens" in the Vatican. This means that they share a unique style and are copyright free. I hope that they enhance your enjoyment of the game. (You could even learn the names of some Greek philosophers when playing the game) They don't influence game play in any...
