Though here at journey's end I lie in darkness buried deep, beyond all towerrs strong and high, beyond all mountains steep, above all shadows rides the Sun, and Stars forever dwell: I will not say the Day is done, nor bid the Stars farewell.

Absolutly my favorite game as of yet. Every game has a cliff hanger ending. Only flaw is I can never secure a victory for myself...

I LOVE this game!! Since I was a kid I have always been into Greek mythology and Cyclades is a game which delivers not only such a wonderful theme, it also brings a lot of tactical options to the table. I especially like the way how your tactics need to be adjusted by the moves of the other players so you constantly need to have an eye on them too. Great gameplay, wonderful artwork... Cyclades is one of my personal favorites!

Me and my girlfriend really love this game.

It's easy to teach and to learn, but it's really deep too. You almost always have a lot of option each turn. Each god gives you interesting options and none is a bad choice. Also, if you get stuck with a god you didn't need for this turn, you can alway buy a creature to screw your opponents (except if you got Apollo). Played this game a lot of times and it never feels repetitive since the gods available and their order is random eahc turn, and the creatures available also.

Most wins are always a surprise. You have one player well on his way to win and bang! On the last turn, it's the least succesful player that manages a masterful stroke to win. For example, in one 2 player game I had no metropolis and my girlfriend had 2 (you need 3 to win in a 2 player game). In the last turn, she managed to build her last metropolis for an almost certain win, but playing last, I managed to gain a fourth philosopher so I got my first metropolis, i bought a University to complete my set of for building which got me my second metropolis, and I bought the pegasus card which allowed me to invade one of her island and steal one of her metropolis which got me my third. You should have seen the look on her face...

The game is built in a way that you will never be stuck with nothing to do on a turn. You can obtain a metropolis through contruction, philosophy or military might.

You could break the game by abusing the power of Zeus, cycling through the creatures deck and coming up with unbeatable creatures combo, but it is easily house-ruled.

The other thing that might be problematic is that you have to build a bridge of ship to be able to invade with your troops. It works fine in the game, but it is strange and most people struggle with this aspect of the game.

My favorite game.

Very well balanced game. I really enjoy how you can use mythological creatures - they are not very strong, but can turn the tide of some battles. Moreover it is very difficult to tell who is going to win, till the last turn.

Like Ghost Stories, this game really blew me away in how simple the game is, yet how fulfilling and rewarding it is to play. Beautiful game and works fantastic with 2 players.
