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. Our group at the club liked it.
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.
From the publisher:
A beautiful and beautifully simple game of laying a tile before your own token to continue its path on each turn. The goal is to keep your token on the board longer than anyone else’s, but as the board fills up this becomes harder because there are fewer empty spaces left… and another player’s tile may also extend your own path in a direction you’d rather not go. Easy to introduce to new players, Tsuro lasts a mere 15 minutes and actually does work for any number from 2 to 8.
8 player Tsuro at the club. Connor, the youngest player, played mercilessly and came out the winner
I have just found out about the Leeds Battle Bunker. They are situated in the centre of Leeds. Here is their promo on You Tube.
They meet every Sunday at the Pack Horse Pub, Brigate, Leeds, from 11:30 until 17:30.
The Headingley Games Club believe the all games groups should support each other in our local area. We are not sectarian. The more the merrier we say.
