Build like a mortal, win like a God in the game of Santorini, the strategic family board game that is designed simple enough for an elementary school classroom while aiming to provide game play depth and content for even hardcore gamers to explore.
In this elegant and visually appealing board game, you play as one of the Greek Gods competing with each other to best aid the island citizen in building their beautiful village
Their incredibly simple game play will have you learning the game in under 20 minutes if you are totally new and would bring about tons of adventures with friends and family alike.
The objective is simple: Be the first player to build, block, and climb your way to the top of a tower three stories high.
If one of your Workers moves up on top of level 3 during your turn, you instantly win! You must always perform a move then build on your turn. If you are unable to, you lose.
How to play
The rules are simple. Each player turn consists of 2 steps:
1. Move- move one of your builders into a neighboring space. You may move your Builder Pawn on the same level, step-up one level, or step down any number of levels.
2. Build- Then construct a building level adjacent to the builder you moved. When building on top of the third level, place a dome instead, removing that space from play.
Winning the game- If either of your builders reaches the third level, you win.
Variable player powers- Santorini features variable player powers layered over an otherwise abstract game, with 40 thematic god and hero powers that fundamentally change the way the game is played.
