This mechanic requires you to place a bid, usually monetary, on items in an auction of goods in order to enhance your position in the game. These goods allow players future actions or improve a position. The auction consists of taking turns placing bids on a given item until one winner is established, allowing the winner to take control of the item being bid on. Usually there is a game rule that helps drop the price of the items being bid on if no players are interested in the item at its current price.
Dice rolling in a game can be used for many things, randomness being the most obvious. Dice can also be used as counters. The dice themselves can be unique and different sizes, shapes and colors to represent different things.
I like the team variant- however it does mean basically one person is playing and another is watching. The Titans are a fun addition.
I cannot express how much I love this expansion and the base game. It brings so much to life in a wonderful hybrid game sort of way. The bidding mechanic of offering to the gods in this and the base game really makes for some interesting moves and decisions. The Titans and artifacts add in so much complexity and balance out various aspects of the base game in my opinion.
I was not part of the development at all, even being Matagot but I played the final game and it makes me like Cyclades even more. Much more. Great Job to Bruno & Ludo !
