It refers to a rectangle that's approximately contstructed in the ratio of 9 to 16. The golden rectangle has several characteristics. Let's say I create a square within this shape. Then, this smaller rectangle that I just created will also be a

golden rectangle. I make another square within that and the leftover is another golden rectangle. And I make a few more, and when I connect all the central points of these shapes it creates a spiral that continues forever. This is the "Golden Spin".

Shut Up and sit Down have talked me into this again...

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.

Because BBG count this one as a Civ-Game and it was anyway unplayed on my shelf I brought it to the table to learn the game itself and check if there's really something "civy" with it.

So it's definitely a nice area control game with a nice theme on it (I liked greek mythology already in high school) but in my understanding not a Civ-Game.



Playing both side is a bit difficult because you need to do a blind bit on the god actions but still manageable (surprised myself several times by possibilities I haven't seen when I played the other player cool )

thumbsup Theme
thumbsup Component quality and the miniatures (every color has its own models)
thumbsdown Not a Civ-Game
thumbsdown The Creatures actions seem a bit lame.. expected more.



Are the expansions worth to buy? Does they give the game more depth or is it just more from everything?

To finish out we played a five player game (Michael joined us) of this area control / bidding game (two mechanisms I'm pretty terrible at).

Basically each round you bid for the favour of the five gods available, each of which grants you a different ability. If you want to build or move your ships, you need Poseidon, if you want to move troops you need Ares etc. After the bidding is finished, each player takes their actions on the board.

The winning condition is to have control of two metropolises at the end of a round. These can be build two ways, by having one of each type of small building under your control or by receiving four philosopher cards. Once you build one you just need to hang onto it until you can build or steal another.

To further complicate matters, there are monster cards in a display that are available for purchase during any player's turn. These have a pretty big range of powerful effects, some place giant creatures on the board (such as the Kraken, Polyphemus the cyclops and the minotaur), which stay in place until your next turn and perform some sort of function, such as destroying ships or preventing troops from leaving the island.

Our play went a bit long, we had some almost victories before Stu finally took the win.

This is not really my style of game, I'm usually not a fan of games in which someone almost wins, and everybody combines to stop them and extends the game for another thirty minutes. It also often seems that there are really two or three players in the running for victory and everyone else is just picking up scraps. This was only my first play so it's unfair to judge too harshly, but I don't think this a game for me.
