INTRODUCTION Card Game. Greek Heroes undertake adventures of Mythic proportions. Players accumulate Heroes, City States, Relics, and great Victories over legendary monsters with the aid of the Gods. THE CARDS To play you will have to make your own cards. There are 129 cards in the deck. Use unlined colored index cards. One side should be blank or have the name Agea written on it. The other side should include: Name of the card. For example: Sphinx Card Type. For example: Event; or Non-Monster Foe; or Non-Foe Challenge All information in the card description. For example: Wit (Riddle) Sample Card: _______________________ |Sphinx | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |Monster Challenge | | | | Wit | | (Riddle) | | | | | | | |_______________________| CARDSET AVAILABLE!!!!!!!! Mythicagea SETUP Flip coins or roll dice to determine turn order. Turn order remains the same for the rest of the game. Shuffle the deck. Players cut the deck until each has one hero. Players put their hero face up on the table "in play". Players start the game with no cards in their hands. TURN SEQUENCE Players take turns. There are 3 phases in a turn: 1. Recovery Phase 2. Draw Phase 3. Adventure Phases RECOVERY PHASE Remove 1 Delay Token from all of your Heroes that have them. Use coins, dice, or whatever for Delay Tokens. Maximum hand size = 7 Cards. Discard down to maximum hand size. DRAW PHASE Draw 1 Card. Whenever a card is drawn show it to all players. If it is a Challenge card discard it into the discard pile. If it is a City State or Hero place it face up in front of you. You now control the Card, but it is not part of your hand. If you draw a Relic or Companion, either attach it to a Hero or keep it in your hand to be attached at any later time. Attached cards are placed partially under the Hero card with their names showing. If it is an Event Card play it or keep it, unless the card instructs you to play it immediately. Event cards are discarded as soon as their effect is resolved. Play Event cards whenever it is appropriate. ADVENTURE PHASE Each of your heroes that does not have delay counter(s) may, in any order, draw a card (Go adventuring). All Heroes adventure separately. Play City States, Heroes, and Events as in Draw Phase. Any Relics or Companions found must be attached to that Hero only. If a Hero draws a Challenge card the hero is tested: If the Hero has the trait listed on the Challenge card the Hero is victorious and the Challenge card is placed in that players Victory Pile. Relics & Companions lend their traits to their Hero owner. Event cards, like Blessings, can also give Heroes extra traits. If the Hero does not have the trait, then the Hero is defeated. Put 1D6 (1 die roll) Delay tokens on the Defeated Hero and discard the Challenge. If you roll a 6 the hero and all his posessions are discarded. (A Greek Tragedy) If the Challenge card contained the word 'destroyer' in its description then that player must also discard a City State. Sample Challenges: 1. Hercules encounters the Hydra. Hercules has the trait 'Strength' and the Hydra is a test of strength or wit, so Hercules is victorious. 2. Argo meets the Hydra. Argo has neither strength nor wit, so he is defeated and gets 1D6 delay tokens. 3. Ajax has the relic 'Blade of Hephaestus' which gives him the trait of 'War'. He encounters the Centaurs and defeats them. 4. Theseus draws 'Lost at Sea'. He plays the event 'Blessing of Poseidon' giving him the navigation trait. He overcomes the challenge. Note: a hero with the Demigod trait will automatically overcome any challenge on a roll of 1-2 on 1D6. WARS There are 4 Event cards that start wars. All players add up the number of Heroes and City states they control, plus all of the War and Army traits they can muster. Do not count delayed Heroes. Each player adds 1D6 to their sum. The sum is called the Battle Total. The player with the highest Battle Total is the winner. The winner may take a City State away from one of the losers. The winner puts the War event card in his Victory pile. ENDING THE GAME The game ends when the last card is drawn from the deck. VICTORY The player with the most accumulated victory points (VP) at the end of the game is the winner. Gain VP in the following manner: Accomplishment VP Awarded Per Hero you control 1 Per City State you control 1 Per Relic owned 1 Per War won 4 Per Blessing in your final Hand 1 Per Challenge in your Victory Pile 1 Some cards will contribute more VP according to their card description.
