In Ancient Greece, a leader of a polis or “city-state” worshipped the mighty Olympian gods for the wisdom to lead. With the favor of the gods these leaders developed their polis’ population and culture, waged wars, and erected magnificent buildings and temples. Now you have been chosen by the gods to lead one of these poleis; oversee your people’s path to greatness and your own path to dominion over all of Peloponnesus!
In Olympus, a worker placement game for 3-5 players, you send your cunning priests to worship the fickle Olympian deities. The gods will grant their divine favors to any priest who will perform a ceremony in their name. Use the gods for your own mortal purposes to increase your agricultural production, advance your culture, erect buildings, and go to war.
Olympus includes a Mount Olympus game board, five Polis boards, over 180 cards, a rulebook, and over 100 playing pieces. A worker placement game that incorporates a unique level of direct interaction, Olympus has a strategy for any player from resource gathering and building development to more aggressive options, such as war and plague. Praise the gods, and reign over Ancient Greece!
