Mythic Battles: Pantheon is a miniatures board game 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.
The game blends elements of drafting forces, card management, and special dice to enable skilful use of combos and player influence over chance. What’s more, it can be played in skirmish mode or as a full adventure.
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 divinity (a God or a Titan), you get a recruitment point budget to buy their followers with. This budget depends on the number of players at the table. 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 five different categories: Gods, Titans, 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.
Coming to our store at the end of this year!
Mythic Battles: Pantheon is currently being reprinted and will be available in our online store around November 2023 – just as soon as all the Kickstarter backers have received their orders.
We are also preparing to launch a roleplaying game in 2024, which will be designed so that you can use the equipment already available in the board game.
