It's about Greek mythology. What other reason would I need?

Also, it's a pretty fantastic game in its own right. So I've got that going for me.

I own both Cyclades and Kemet and both play well with 5, but one of our players does not like fighty-conflict games and did not enjoy Kemet the one time he played it. Cyclades has just enough conflict to keep our more aggressive members interested, but it is not the focus of the game as it is in Kemet. Cyclades also plays faster than Kemet.

This is awesome! Ready to give this a shot for the first time!

Day 1 - Play the newest edition to your gaming collection.
I played the expansion for The Grizzled, The Grizzled: At Your Orders!, for the first time. Tried the solitaire variant. I died. Horribly. Was stupid hard, but loads of fun.

Day 2 - Play your current favourite game.
Today was a solitaire game of 51st State: Master Set. I used the base cards only. I look forward to adding in the New Era cards to the deck for the next game. I managed to pull out a win, but with 29 points, I still only achieved the MUTANT level...zombie

Day 3 - Play a dexterity game.
AARRGH! I left all my Pitch Car stuff at school for the game club! Let me see what I can find that qualifies...!

Day 4 - Play a game that is in your top 10 games.

Day 5 - Have your favourite beverage while playing games.

Day 6 - Play a game with dice.

Day 7 - Post a comment on another participant's Advent list

Day 8 - Post a picture of you and the game you will play tonight

Day 9 - Play a game that requires using pencil and paper

Day 10 - Play a game that is card driven

Day 11 - Play your favourite filler

Day 12 - Wish someone a Merry Christmas today

Day 13 - Play a game you received last year for Christmas

Day 14 - Open a door for someone today

Day 15 - Give someone a hug today

Day 16 - Rogue One opens at the theatres - Santa doesn't mind if you go see the movie instead of gaming!

Day 17 - Start player is the first person that put up their Christmas lights

Day 18 - Have Holiday treats for your gaming guests while you game

Day 19 - Wear something Christmassy while gaming

Day 20 - Roll a D6...result 1 = play a Euro 2 = Play a thematic game 3 = Play a dice game 4 = Play a card game 5 = Play a kid's game 6 = Play a dexterity game

Day 21 - Play a Euro

Day 22 - Roll a D20 for start player - any crit and that player may choose the start player for the rest of the gaming session

Day 23 - play a game that you have not yet played in December

Day 24 - Wish your family a Merry Christmas and congrats on making it this far!

Number 8

Everyone seems to like this game. No player elimination and pretty aggressive but the rules make it such that it will usually take 2 turns to mount an attack, allowing you a good chance at preventing it or pre-empting it. I haven't got any of the expansions, but am looking at Titans.

I remember liking this when I played it once. Variable powers of the gods and a bidding system that worked pretty well. The board and artwork were particularly standout and the game play flowed nicely. Never bought it though and so this could slip down the list in future.

This is an interesting contest, I had to look at your profile a bit to get some kind of direction. You have played a lot of games so maybe you have already enjoyed this one but I'm thinking you didn't.

In the base game of Cyclades you use a combination of area control and auctions to get to the goal of having two cities, which are made up of four buildings that you have to construct by winning an auction on a track of that god.

The area control is a large part of the game but it is overshadowed by the auctions. I have yet to see this auction mechanic anywhere else, once you bid on a track for a god and then are outbid you cannot bid on that god, you have to bid on a new god. Unless someone comes along later and then outbids you on the new track, then you may return to your first track for bidding. There are lots of crunchy decisions, you always have more that you want to do than you can do. One complaint I read about is that the game feels like a turtling exercise but I've always been more focused on the auctions.

So why do I not own it? My friend has a copy so I already had access, but now that I have an additional game group and he a baby I think I would now have use for my own copy.

Good luck in the contest.

Newly purchased. It feels unfair to have it in the number one slot with only limited plays. But never has a game grabbed us like this has... I find myself thinking about playing all the time and really can't think of any other game that is so fun to play and provides the brain burn that I do love.

Is this a passing fancy or will it remain in this spot next year...I don't expect it to move far if any... can't wait for my next play and to start exploring the exspansions.

This copy is in excellent condition and includes a complete set of painted minis (heroes and monsters only - not the individual player pieces).

In this same box comes:


Cyclades: Hades

(also with painted minis), however the cards for the expansion are missing. You may be able to get them from the publisher but I've never never tried.

Below is a picture which shows the actual painted figures:





For sale or trade.
