This makes the list despite my misgivings about how we might enjoy the game play, just because my 13-year old self finds it AWESOME LOOKING!

The majority of this game is auctioning and city building with some area control. Sure, plastic miniatures can be part of the combat, but battles take so long to set up that some quite often some players will be able to go the whole game without participating in a single fight. The auctions and economic engine are what usually determine the winner, like any good euro game should have it.

If you know Würfel Reviews then you probably already figured out that it will be on this list. Yeah, we are talking about my (and Alina's) ultimate nr. 1! And it's language-independent! Oh my, there's a lot a can say about this game. I think you can just go to our channel Würfel Reviews in Youtube and watch our Board Game Blender segment about Cyclades (you'll find it there easily). But let me tell you that Hades fixes some issues people have with the base game and it's essential expansion. Titans is essential for people who love more combat oriented and tighter game. Both expansions are great. But even without Titans this game would be my nr. 1! And Alina's too.

Würfel Reviews rating BEST OF THE BEST

First of all: we have all the expansions... and it's our nr1 game. Why ? let me tell you ! When we first bought this game we thought that oh it's beautiful but maybe it will be too wargame-ish and we don't like wargames that much. Then one day we sat down, it was late already... but we wanted to look into the game... I read the rules and they were simple and clear. Then we thought like OK let's make a setup and play 2-3 turns to understand the game. We ended up playing whole game and it was a blast ! All those gods powers, bidding phase, creatures ! The theme comes through a lot ! It's a well balanced game. Hades expansion adds a lot of great stuff and we'll never play the game without expansion anymore. Then we got Titans and now I'm sure that this game will stay in nr. 1 spot for years ! Yeah, there's some area control and wargame aspect but there's a lot more... Bidding, resource management, special powers, miniatures.
Greek mythology, well balanced gameplay, great artwork and miniatures, plays well with 2,3 and 4. 5 is OK... but I think 5 will be great with that new expansion.
Anyway ON THE SHELF 4EVER !!!



WITH EXPANSIONS

I'd like to get a few more games of Cyclades in. Auction based area control game would be my 1 sentence description. Big Brother to Kemet. Much Much less aggressive.

Number of Plays:
2

Why it is on the list: A dudes on a map game.. Kinda. A hybrid game with an interesting use of bidding. The game is often compared to Kemet and I don’t get it. Cyclades enjoys plenty of conflicts, but often just the threat of conflict can cause someone to misplay. Threats keep you on your toes as the game can end very abruptly if someone isn’t paying attention.

Playability: The rules are rather simple, but not easy to remember after an extended period. Everyone likes it, but this falls into that category of a game that we usually only get to the table once or twice a month, meaning it often gets overlooked for a newer game.

System Mastery: I can see us playing this one for a long time to come. The expansions look like they will change play up in just the right ways.

Social Interaction: The conflict on the board and the bidding make this a very fun game. Because the game isn’t all that big in terms of options, you can usually tell when someone is making a play.

What I don’t like: Some of the monster cards, when chained together cause problems if someone has the money for it.

I like the idea of this game and it is beautiful, but playing it was always an exhausting chore. Every turn dragged on trying to get stuff done, but it usually took a few grueling turns just to get a little tiny bit towards the goal...

And then one mythical creature could wipe out all that work.

In the end, when someone finally would win, it was an empty feeling. No sense of accomplishment.
