I was looking to buy Age of Mythology: The Boardgame but have not done so due to some of the negative reviews.

I am open to any suggestions for a good strategy game (any type of game will do) that has to do with mythology.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Tribune: Primus Inter Pares is a nice one... although not mythology but the time period.

Shenomad and I like Hera and Zeus. It's a vastly improved reworking of Stratego.

Risk: Godstorm is all about Mythology. It's pretty decent as a strategy game. Not as good as Risk: 2210 but better than plain vanilla Risk.

Mare Nostrum with Mare Nostrum: Mythology Expansion might be something worth looking into.

Chalk me up as a Age Of Mythology hater. You can pretty much play Puerto Rico and roll 27 6-siders every other turn for aesthetics and you get the point.

As for neat Mythology games:
Beowulf: The Legend is a lot of fun and leads to some good rousing cheers.
Midgard is great with theme.
Colossal Arena is a card game, but has a fun betting system.
Clash of the Gladiators has a great drafting game with combat.
