Visit (temple, barrack, port): Each building has a different effect.
Flag: Place your flag on a cleared area, placing toll for anyone that passes by.
Sacrifice: Get the help of one of the 4 friendly gods, in your way for world domination (Artemis, Cybele, Athena, Ares).
At the end of the 3 rounds, the Amazon that reaches the highest amount of Victory Points, is proclaimed Queen of the Amazons and wins the game.
