Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean immerses you in an exciting, competitive world filled with aggressive trading, perilous voyages, and the construction of grand monuments. Parthenon is a game of commerce for 3-6 players set in the islands of the Aegean Sea. The time is 600 B.C. and mainland Greece stands o the threshold of glory. The Aegean Islands now attempt to share in that glory and to thrive in an increasingly profitable (and dangerous!) world.

In Parthenon, each player represents a different island in the Aegean Sea populated by villages. Each island's villages produce commodities which are either traded with the other islands or sent abroad across the Mediterranean Sea. An island's fleets journey to distant lands and face the deadliest hazards, but also obtain the greatest rewards.

Each player strives to develop his island by building additional villages and workshops, as well as fortresses, shrines, and academies. The first player to complete all the structures on his or her island, including two Great Wonders, wins the game!

Contents: 27 x 40cm game board, 24-page rulebook, 6 large Island reference cards, 1 Archon stand-up counter, 20 plastic counter stands, 18 Fleet counters, 440 finely illustrated playing cards (featuring Events, Fleets, Commodities, Buildings, Philosophies, and Wonders).
