What does hecate add to the game?? From what I can tell in the pic she lets you place two columns and your troops can travel between those two islands with the columns on them???

You've got it !!!
When activating Hecate, you place 2 coloûmns on the 2 island of your chaoice.
Now, troups can move from one island to the other with Ares !!!

They stay until Hecate shows up again and someone pays to place them elsewhere.

So the only way to use Hecate is to buy her on one round and set up the columns for 2g - then next round you have to both win Ares AND Ares has to be in turn order BEFORE Hecate or someone else will move the columns before you get to use them...?

seems like you could get boned very easily with this one ...??? A waste of an entire turn and 2g quite possibly.

Yep!...

To pull it off is the counter to how powerful the ability is.

Idealy you want to activate her on your two islands or on an opponents island where he has to spend time to move people to to defend. you can delay that by denying them Poseidon.

Correct me if I read this wrong, but this seems to suggest that Hecate would still be around the very next round which is not possible. In the next round, either Hecate would be replaced by another Divine Favor or Hades would show, prompting a reshuffle of the Divine Favors (she theoretically could show up in the round after the next in this situation). The columns likely will remain where they are for at least a few turns, possibly longer. Your buddy had better keep outbidding you for Ares because sooner or later you're going to meet him at the crossroads...

So is she just another god you shuffle in and bid for? The size/shape seem to make this difficult.

No, she is a "Divine Favor" like those found in the Hades expansion.
