Description:

Cyclades is a game of auction, area control. It's a unique wargame about winning the favor of the gods to help you to get control of the Cyclades, a group of islands in the Aegean Sea. There are 6 gods in the game (Zeus, Poseidon, Ares, Athena and Apollo) and you best pay homage to each of them for the favors of the gods.

You must bid wisely to get the favors of the right god at the right time and keep your opponents from getting the actions they need.

You start with a small army, a two ships and 5 coins to offer to the gods. Some places on the board will generate you revenue which you can use to offer to the gods, to recruit your forces and advance your empire.

The aim of the game is to have two metropolises by building a fortress, a port, a university and a temple or recruiting four philosophers.
