From the Publisher...
2500 years ago, Greek traders and adventurers travelled to southern Italy to settle and develop the area. They called the region Magna Grecia. The development of the area led to an era of rapid cultural and economic growth. Before the arrival of the Greeks, only a few small isolated villages populated the region. The rich soil, navigable rivers, great forests, and bronze and silver mines offered the Greeks enormous development potential. In time, the Greeks built great cities such as Tarantum, Syrakusai, Katane, Locri, and Naxos. There were also numerous small villages, many of which have disappeared or were swallowed whole by the growing cities. They built a dense network of roads to support trade and the prosperous markets in the cities. With success came strong rivalries among the cities, especially as they competed for the attentions of the oracles for the fame they offered.

|This game has simiple playing mechanics coupled with quick play (my daughter and I play in about 30 min). But it is also a very good strategy game giving you plenty of decisions to make and a board that can change quite a bit between one turn and the next. I like the player turn/action cards which shows the order of the players' turns and how many of each type of tile they can play or take for resupply. Every player has the same actions in a turn so you are forewarned that a player can lay 2 city tiles and 3 roads. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes tile laying games.
