Hey, all,

I'm thinking of making a super nice version of this with stained wood pieces and laser-cut board/god "cards" (will be rectangular wooden tiles), but I'd like to keep the number of initial god cards small due to cost.

Anyone know which 8 gods were released with the initial version of the game?
Or perhaps which 8 gods would be "best" together for my DIY Santorini set?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Did a little research, looks like there were initially 5 gods, and Gord! added 3 more for the second run?

- Aphrodite
- Athena
- Atlas
- Hermes
- Pan

Am I right here? Would still love input on a "great eight" to use.

Of those gods, Aphrodite was deemed too strong (I verified this) and weakened for the final Roxley edition. The Hermes of the early editions is now Artemis. The Roxley edition has a set of ten (?) basic gods that are probably appropriate.
