The Game Gods have smiled upon those coveting the Asmodee game Cyclades, and will bestow their favor for the meager sacrifice of 2,999 pennies placed reverently on the CSI altar.



Average rating: 7.55/10
Board Game Rank: 103
Scales well between 2-5
90 minutes playing time




Little known to most, two star-crossed lovers, the sweet Goddess of eurogames Eurythinkenese and the brash God of ameritrash Chromeo, stole away to the islands to escape the bitter rivalries of their worhsippers and bear a love child.

Away from prying eyes they raised it on a steady diet of epic tales read from D'aulaire's Book of Greek Myths, and that child grew, and grew, until it finally matured into the chrome laden Titan that is Cyclades.




At $29.99 this is a $7.20 savings off the lowest in stock price according to BoardGamePrices. and $14.52 less than Amazon (not including an additional $10 for shipping)

If you are needing to pad your order to get the free shipping, and don'tt need Cyclades delivered immediately, there are also number of salacious pre-orders currently available from CSI at equally impressive prices:
Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition
Glory to Rome: Black Box Edition
Thunderstone Advance: Towers of Ruin


All I ask in return for sharing this boon with you, is that you let Zeus, Poseidon, Ares, Athena, and Apollo know who sent you.

I paid 30 for it on the KILLER sale last year, and it hasn't been at that price since(and many were angry when I told them how much I got it for). Snatch this up fast!

Oh, and consider the expansion, which hardly has anything in it, costs almost exactly the same.

Yeah I'm hoping they'll drop the price of the expansion.

Cyclades is one of those that has something for everyone. Combat, card/power combos, bidding/auctioning, development of board position, and it wraps up neatly in 2 hours or less. Really good game.

The expansion seems light on physical content, but it adds a lot of very, very cool stuff to the game that changes things dramatically.

This game is worth twice that price. It's a great gateway game for warfare types games too.

Well I'll thank you guys for the awesome deal, and my future divorce in my future.

Picked this up with: Merchants and Marauders and Stone Age with my couple % off, it came to 99.97 shipped, pretty slick deal.

You get free shipping on orders of $100 or more so you might want to add a game that costs about the same as the shipping on your order. You pay the same and get four games instead of three.

It was over 100 before the "loyalty discount" so it still ships free.

So technically you could get free shipping on a $95 dollar order, if you're quite loyal to CSI. =P

I wish they'd add another level or two to the loyalty program. I've maxed it out!
