The concept is awesome: if Odysseus fought the Cyclops on strength alone, he'd lose. OBVIOUSLY. But you can pit them against each other based on wisdom instead. Or ferocity--you've got several choices, and making those choices represents the extent of the strategy in the game, BUT how great is it to be able to play something as simple as war & still get to use any strategy at all?
Replay value: unless you're between 8 & 12, you probably won't want to play this too often. I'm not a fan of war, lol, and this only adds so much, so if you're thinking of buying this for a serious gift for an adult who is not a classics prof, you might reconsider.
As far as its educational value, I think it's a great chance to reinforce the idea of the Greek gods, but there are some flaws. Odysseus has a wisdom value of 80, and Athena is only 85. That's dubious, but what's really bad? One of the other heroes...Perseus, I think, has a wisdom value of 99. Um...I'm pretty sure you can't beat the goddess of wisdom AT WISDOM. But that's actually where I think the real value of the game comes in: the conversations, objections, discussions it provokes are FAR more educational than anything else I've encountered. Yes, I think some of the scores are completely wrong and written by someone who never READ Greek mythology, but hearing my 8yo and 11yo say so, supporting their cries of "FOUL!" with evidence, I smiled, with visions of college papers marked "A" dancing in my head.
The art is freakish. Medusa is seriously scary, Aphrodite is naked (although nothing shows), Athena looks more medically enhanced than Dolly Parton, and Pandora was removed from our deck: she's depicted as a child standing horrified as she gazes at images of the demonic dead.Read more ›
