Fun and quick to learn if 1:1 puzzle/ strategy games are your thing.
I bought this game originally as something to do with my partner over lockdown as we wanted a 2 player game specifically, hoping that such a game would be better to play than those designed for 2-6 players. Plus my partner loves all things Greek so it seemed like a good shout.
The game doesn't disappoint! It is quick to learn and play. with the premise being you sail around the aegean scavenging resources to trade and fund your architectural digs to discover temples hidden around the board. Given the unique placement of tiles and the compass direction of the game, it's pretty much impossible to play the same game twice. Which makes this game an easy one to return to and enjoy over and over again. The box comes stuffed with tiles, pieces, little sail boats, and a deck of cards all nicely crafted and finished.
We have enjoyed playing this game so far - the only draw back being there is little interactivity in game play! It is quite easy to sail in opposite directions and never have to play against the other player, only speaking to them at the end... But we mix it up a little each time and still have lots of fun.
Excellent by for couples who like 1:1 puzzle and strategy games, ~14 years and up.
