Hello all

Anyone have any tips or tricks for playing Athena?

Have yet to play any games sadly but I'm stoked to try her out and was wondering what has worked or not worked for others.

Her strategist ability seems good but not sure when to use such a power.

And is the owl just for taking pot shots at troops or weakened units?

This is a working document from the MB: P Facebook page. It explains some strategies for all the units.

My son's Athena combo is:

*Draft Athena, Leonidas, & Hoplites (more offensive) or Spartans (more defensive)

*Get Athena & Leonidas & troops in same area

*Athena activates, then pays 2 AoW for Strategist
*Searches for Leonidas and two of whatever you want (usually another Athena and an AoW)
*Leonidas activates, buffs the troops and searches for one of their activation cards with Born Leader
*Troops activate

Benefits include:
*Whenever Athena is the target of an attack. Leonidas uses Guard to become the target, then Wall of Shields (even if the troops are incomplete) to make troops the target. Leonidas can Guard, but can't also Wall of Shields.
*If the troops are in the same area, they are bolstered by both Athena and Leonidas (8 defense for Spartans).
*Troops attacking are +2 (double Bolster).
*Athena and Leonidas are both +1 attack & +1 defense (Phalanx).
