In the Cyclades base game, players fight for domination over archipelagos in ancient Greece.
They make offerings to gods to secure their favors and summon mythological creatures.
The Hades expansion allows players to add Hades (no surprise there) to other gods present in the base game: Zeus, Ares, Athena, Poseidon and Apollo.
Players will be able to build a Necropolis and summon undead armies when they gain favours of Hades.
In this latest collaboration between Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc, 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.
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 favours of the gods, as only one player can have the favor of each god per turn – and each player is also limited to the favour of a single god per turn.
