|Very interesting game largely because of the different "modes" of the game. You bid on auctions, buy minions, place armies, and try to dominate the board. Awesome game!
|Cyclades is a great "hybrid" game. It's a cross between a European style game (auctioning) and American style (area control, attacking) and pulls them both off beautifully. The artwork and production value of the game are magnificent. Definitely top notch components! This is a game for those that like a lot of interaction. Plays great with 2-5 people with an expanding board. With multiple ways to win, this game has great replay value. Enjoy!
|It's been since the glory days of Wallenstein and Mare Nostrum that we've seen a Euro/AT hyrbid as good as this one. Gorgeous bits with wild deity powers and monsters mixed with Euro resource management and bidding, this is a game sure to please a lot of crowds. Plus, it's a conquest game that plays 5 in 90 minutes once you have the rules down...pretty amazing feat.
