12 Greek themed boardgames Zeus would love

A great theme for board games is the mythical Greece theme,  which was very well received by me. So the main characters of Greek mythology are: Zeus, Apollo, and Athena, goddess of war and justice. Explore Greek history, politics, science, and art. A great theme for me as I am a fan of ancient Greek poetry. – Greek For Life! – the ancient history theme that you get throughout each game gives you great opportunities to learn about the history and culture of other civilizations.

Age of Mythology

Players control armies made up of warriors, priests, heroes, and mythical creatures from ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Norse mythology. They gather resources, which allow them to create buildings and armies. Special buildings are required to allow players to build new army types and improve the abilities of their units. Battles are resolved with a unique dice and card system that keeps the action moving. You get all the fast-paced action of a real-time game, with real 3-D pieces, and face-to-face gameplay!

Cyclades

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.
