Iliad: Heroes of Troy is a simple, yet deep card game based on the epic narrative by Homer.

The game features major characters from the story. You can play as the Greeks, Trojans or Gods. Each turn, you choose a card from your hand to play and then activate one of its nine different abilities. Those abilities enable you to manipulate cards in your hand or your opponent’s hand, earn victory points or steal them from an opponent.

The round ends when one player has no cards left. The player with the most points wins the round and the first player to win two rounds wins the game.

Iliad: Heroes of Troy is a fast game which requires clever hand management, as well as careful timing, while you should use each trait wisely in order to gain victory.

Iliad: Heroes of Troy has been running on Kickstarter, where you can back it and engage in a battle with the Heroes of Troy!

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
