Mythic Battles Pantheon

Live on Kickstarter now, well past fully funded and with stretch goals falling by the wayside, Mythic Battles: Pantheon is a miniatures board game for 2 to 4 players that puts you in an Olympian God’s sandals! It offers several game modes: from tactical battles against other Gods, to scenarios and campaigns that’ll take you on an epic adventure across the devastated ruins of Ancient Greece. A typical game lasts 60-90 minutes.

Each God, hero, or monster possesses spectacular and unique powers. The game blends elements of drafting forces, card management, and special dice to enable skillful use of combos and player influence over chance.
The Titans have escaped their prison in Tartarus to wreak havoc and devastation upon the world. Seeking revenge on their jailers, they attacked the home of the Gods – Mount Olympus itself! The battle was long and closely-fought, but in the end the Gods were victorious. Even so, the battle cost them dearly.
The surviving Gods are greatly weakened and have lost their immortality. The only way to regain this power is to assimilate the energy stones called Omphalos. The first to absorb enough of this energy will become the new ruler of the Gods, and can create a Pantheon in their own image.

Each miniature possesses unique powers: Zeus throws lightning bolts, the Hydra regenerates, Achilles is almost invulnerable… These powers can be combined to create devastating effects. At the start of each game you choose a God, and then build a warband around them. Choose wisely!
After you’ve chosen your God, you get a recruitment point budget to buy their followers with. This budget depends on the number of players at the table (from 2 to 4 players). In the more narrative campaign mode, you play with a pre-selected team of fighters that evolves from one scenario to the next.

Your warriors fall into four different categories: Gods, Heroes, Monsters, and Troops. Each type has its own advantages, and you may build your army with any combination you like – the only restriction is the overall cost. If your God only wants Monsters to fight beside them, that’s fine. Usually, you’ll be trying to find a balance between offence, defence, and resources. However, even veteran players sometimes just take the characters they like the look of, or the Heroes they know from stories or films, and this is a great way to start.
