A Treasures of Olympus egy remek társasjáték, 2 - 6 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövid, csak 15 - 30 perc. A társast, 8 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a kollekció gyűjtés, az aukció/licit, a kockáztatás, a játék végi bónuszok és a rejtett szerepek mechanizmusokra.
The Olympian gods are up to no good, again! In this Greek mythological game, you'll assume the hidden identify of an Olympian 'god' that has been granted the ability to yield Thunderbolts from Zeus. You'll use these Thunderbolts to compete in the game of the 'gods' which is to subdue mythological creatures that will inevitably be commanded, by you, to fight for treasures that interest the 'gods'. In this bidding and battling game, the player (‘god’), that scores the most points wins.
This is a fun, fast paced action game that is played in two phases, control, and command phases, before end game scoring. Only the 'gods' know when they will reveal their ‘god’ identity and how their divine ability will be used.
With a bidding style mechanic using your limited supply of Thunderbolts, the game’s first phase is about gaining control of an army of creatures around the table. Gathering information is a key element of this phase because each player will only be allowed to see other players creature’s strengths. Their own creature will be on a stand facing away from them and therefore unknown.
After the control phase, each player will command their army of mythological creatures to battle for treasures! This phase is an epic competition for gold, valor, armor, temples and worshippers that only interest the ‘gods’. Each treasure has different values and symbols that are part of set collections and end game scoring.
After all the battling is done, it’s time to tally scores by combining mythological creature and treasure cards to finish out all the scoring combinations. The player, or ‘god’ with the most points wins and gets bragging rights in Olympus... for now.
