I play a lot of games 2 player, but playing this as 2 player just ends up more like a chess match and I'm not much of a chess person.

Good game without the cards for learning to play without complexity Great game with the cards once mechanics are understood
Love abstract games and this one has a lot of variability. Im excited to see how all the gods interact with each other. The game seems very expandable with god/hero cards, which makes me excited about replayability.
Probably the best abstract in the world with the best art too.
Starts slow and the overall strategy can be one dimensional (force opponents off, block, win) but the tactical choices are still interesting. Player powers are great, add tons of variety and can be used to balance the game.

Won in a contest.
Santorini is a joyously puzzling abstract game. Most open information games have a tendency to feel as if the loser lost (by making a poor move) rather than the winner won. Santorini avoids this key pitfall. As such, Santorini is more about forcing your opponent into suboptimal moves, and exploiting their predicted movement to achieve victory. The rules are unbelievably short, especially for a game with such crunch moment, and the God cards add delightful new wrinkles to each game. A great game to explore, especially if you play against the same opponent each time.
The base game is great and I love how quick it is to teach. The god cards though. They make the game so great! I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much fun it’s been with 2 and 3 players!
