It's dangerous to go alone! Take this.

Interested in this game after finding out more about it via review and run-through videos but concerned about the number of titans. Those decks don't look near the size of the A and B decks.

Does the amount of titans hold up to multiple plays or do they start to feel samey because of the limited number of them?

Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.

I know nothing of the game.

Mylologically speaking there were 12 first generation titans and 14 second generation titans.

They were overthrown by the Olympic gods and goddesses.

We now return to our regular program...

I have 9 plays so far and it hasn't felt samey yet. I did initially have this concern myself when I unboxed the game but it hasn't been a problem so far.

The focus of the game is not on the titans but rather on the tableau you are building which is mostly composed of A/B deck cards and military cards.

It certainly is not the case that the person who defeats the most titans (or the biggest titan) wins. Defeating titans is an important element of the game, but only one element among many. Really you are trying to set collect the most banners and the titans are just one route to that.
