In this game of ancient colonization, pilot your
fleet of colonists to an unknown Mediterranean
shore and establish colonies in fortuitous
locations. Some of the decisions you will consider:
Land immediately or take time to find the ideal location?
Benefit from proximity to others or stay more safely away?
Re-invest to grow your colonies or conquer those of others?
Send your fleet home or use it as a vehicle of influence?
Create more colonies or thrive safely behind strong walls?
Pursue speedy growth or avoid disrupting the citizenry?
In ancient times nearly every vacant Mediterranean
coastline was colonized by one group of
Greeks or another. In the game you may play
the tyrannical Corinthians
the belligerent Spartans
the Euboean explorers
the thrifty Phocaeans
founders of ancient Marseilles and famed as the
best seafarers of all the Greeks
the Phoenicians, whose seafaring and trading
abilities are legend to this day
A discovered, modular board that is different every time
Variable powers and a large card deck
No board means it's easy to take along.
