Product Description

Did you know that, in addition to their supreme powers, the Greek gods were endowed with the special ability to change the course of card games? Well, at least that's the case in Zeus on the Loose! As you figure out how harness the strengths of the various gods within, you'll sharpen strategic thinking along with valuable addition and subtraction skills. A quick warning about Hera: Though she may be the most powerful goddess in the game, don't get on her bad side or else she might wind up helping an opponent steal Zeus and win! HOW TO PLAY: Catch Zeus if you can! The great Greek god has bolted from Mount Olympus and it's up to you to nab this dashing deity. Play cards strategically, adding numbers as you climb up the mythic mountain. Grab Zeus when the total reaches a multiple of 10. Better yet, summon the strength of Apollo, Poseidon, or all-powerful Hera to bring Zeus within your grasp. Reach the top of Mount Olympus with Zeus in hand and you're a mortal among the gods. To play is human. To win, divine! 2 to 5 Players. Playing Time: about 15 minutes

I bought this game when my nephew (age 9) was visiting for rainy days. This game was a ton of fun! My nephew, already into mythology, loved the fact you could "steal Zeus". The actual game play is very educational (adding/subtracting) and if you're smart, you use strategy to win the game. The drawings of the gods/goddesses are very cute and we got a kick out of the Zeus statue (looks just like the guy on the box). Some games aren't that easy to learn straight out of the box, but this one was straight forward and simple to learn, my nephew picked it up right away and therefore didn't get frustrated trying to learn rules. However, just because the game seems straightforward and simple...it's not as easy as it looks! Highly recommend this game to anyone w/kids around 8+!

My 5 & 9 year old boys love this game and so do I! We enjoy stealing Zeus from each other and seeing how fast we can "climb" Mount Olympus. I like that they're hearing and using mythological names and that my oldest works on quick adding and subtracting. My youngest boy needs one of us to add/subtract right now, but he gets to practice recognizing numbers. We love Gamewright games and have previously played Frog Juice, Rat-a-Tat Cat, Hissss, Snap, Feed the Kitty, and Leaping Lizards. This has been one of the boys' favorites because of the "stealing" and fast pace.

I'm a speech pathologist and the kids I work with love this game. Younger students practice their math skills by keeping a total of Mt. Olympus (on paper), while older students enjoy the challenge of remembering the total as the game is played. A great game for elementary-aged kids.

This game is a lot of fun! I bought it thinking it would be a good travel game -- which it is, but what I didn't realize was what an incredible education game it is also. As a teacher, I have used this game constantly in my class and all of my kids love it. Beyond all the math, there is a lot of strategy to the game which keeps it interesting.

It does help if an adult plays to help keep track of where Mt. Olympus is and to keep the math correct. My third graders aren't very successful playing it by themselves, but fifth and six graders usually are.

This year, I also realized that it can be used for both addition and subtraction. To use it as a subtraction game, we start at 100 and work backwards. Hera goes to 1 instead of 99 and Posiedon adds 10 rather than subtracts.

We have several Gamewright card games and just adore some of them. But Zeus on the Loose just hasn't been that fun for our family (girls 9 and 6). The balance of luck vs. skill vs. all-out-wanting-to-win just doesn't make it. My daughter is a big Percy Jackson fan, so the Greek Myth angle was huge for her, but not enough for her to choose to play this over other favorites, like Sleeping Queens.

This is one of many Gamewright games I've gotten to play with my kids, and is one of my very favorites! It is simple, you try to get Mt. Olympus (the discard pile) to add up to 100, and have Zeus with you when it gets there. Full of fun card like reverse the total, subtract 10, round to the nearest 10 along with the regular numbered cards. It's so much fun that you forget that your kid is using their math skills. My husband is a teacher and plays this in his classroom. You can't go wrong with this game!

This is a fun game for my 2nd grader to practice his adding while having a good time. He also likes memorizing the Gods Zeus, Aphrodite, Hera, Poseidon, Hermes, Athena, Artemes, Ares and Apollo. It's easy to learn and play. The balance of skill and luck make it exciting and unpredictable. We are always impressed with the creativitiy of Gamewrights games.
