Age of Gods
War and intrigue in a barbarous world
Age of Gods is a wonderful boardgame taking place in a medieval-fantasy universe.
Each player takes on the role of one of the 12 Gods from the game and tries to increase his influence on earth, by using all the races living on it like puppets.
The choice of your God will determine some of your powers and even perhaps your style of play. But the concept on which the game is based is rather simple: the game contains 24 races, of different sizes and who they follow is a secret. During the game, you will be able to take control of a race in each size category, but you do not know in advance those you will end up watching over. The other subtle mechanic is the fact that by using an appropriate action card, you will be able to use any race (even those who do not follow you).
To win, you will have to wage war, forge alliances, use divine powers (divine wrath, extra fortresses for the God of protectors, easier breakthrough for the God of conquest, combat bonuses for the God of war, territories which cannot be invaded for the Goddess of love… just a few examples of powers these twelve Gods will grant you).
