Description

The Oracle of Delphi, by renowned designer Stefan Feld, is an atmospheric, yet highly challenging race that demands sophisticated strategy as well as short-term adaptability.

Zeus, Greek god of thunder and sky, hosts a competition for the most valorous mortal captains. So you ready your ships and sail the Aegean to be the first to complete his twelve tasks: erect graceful statues, raise awe-inspiring shrines, make generous offerings, and slay the most fearsome monsters.

In order to find the righteous path onward, you question Pythia, the mysterious Oracle of Delphi and let her divinations guide your ways.

In The Oracle of Delphi, the players’ ships travel across a large variable game board of hexagonal tiles showing islands and the surrounding waters. Each player tries to reach certain islands to perform twelve tasks for Zeus: collect offerings of different colors and to deliver them to corresponding temples, slay monsters of a specific type (and color), etc.

In order to execute these color-dependent actions, you’re given three colored dice each turn: Oracle Dice. Rolling the dice (at the start of the turn) is equivalent to consulting the Oracle of Delphi. The resulting roll represents her answers. The answers determine which actions you can take, but you always get three actions each turn. It is often possible, however, for you to make a slight divergence from your fate.

You can also request support from the gods to acquire favor tokens, companions, and other special abilities that will give you an edge in the race.

The differently equipped ships and variable setup of the game board provide new challenges and allow for interesting strategic and tactical decisions in every game of The Oracle of Delphi you play.
