Overall Rank: #252 | Trending Rank: #850

Players must buy the favor of the Gods in their race to be the first player to build two cities in the Ancient Greek island group known as the Cyclades.

Victory requires respect for all the Gods - players cannot afford to sacrifice to only one God, but must pay homage to each of five Gods in turn. Each turn, the players bid for the favors of the Gods, as only one player can have the favor of each God per turn - and each player is also limited to the favor of a single God per turn.

-Ares allows the movement of player armies and the building of Fortresses.
-Poseidon allows players to move their navies and build Ports.
-Zeus allows his followers to hire priests and build temples.
-Athena provides her worshipers with philosophers and universities.
-Apollo increases the income of his worshippers.

  • Will probably rise higher with more plays at higher player counts.
  • Really cool game. Using an auction mechanic to nail down what kind of actions you want to take on your turn is awesome. This game plays best at 5.
  • Got this on sale and have kemet so wanted to get the c3k pack so you can use all of the monsters in both. Cyclades is great fun, best not to play with 2 due to the auction mechanic aspect.
  • A few glaring issues that can be house ruled.

I started my gaming journey with coup! Kemet is really fun,  I suggest you check out other mattagot games in that same dudes on a map vein: #Inis and#Cyclades. 

Inis is one of my favorite games and the art style is beautiful.

Welcome!

I watched/read a few things in the #Kemet vs #Inis vs #Cyclades and I don't recall anyone not picking #Inis (which incidentally caused it to be the most interesting to me, among other reasons).

#Inis is a visually beautiful game with very unique art and great components. The game is relatively easy to teach, with 3 clear winning conditions and only about 16 cards bein the main way to take actions in the game. Yet the game can become a deep, rich tactical struggle once all players are familiar with those 16 cards. Its definetly my favorite game in my collection and I recently got the expansion for it. 

As for the reason its not talked about all that much (last week it was mentioned though!), might be because its very often out of print or maybe the year it was released there was a lot of fixation with higher quality minis. But to be fair I don't hear any of the other Matagot games mentioned that much either: #Kemet , #Cyclades.
