None can defy Fate but the gods themselves. Driven by the ambition of their king, the Greeks have arrived on the shores of Troy. Some seek power; some seek revenge, while others seek the great moment in battle that will define their place in history. From veteran designer Gunter Cornett, Agamemnon is a fast-paced strategy board game in which two players take the roles of ancient Greek gods during the Trojan War. By tactically deploying warriors to where they're needed across the board, each player may influence the final outcome of the battles famously detailed in Homer's Iliad. Some areas will be decided by the strength of your warriors, some by sheer weight of numbers, and others by the inspiration your heroes provide. 2 Players 15-30 minutes Ages 12 and up

Newspapers & Magazines
"It was my favorite among all the games I played at Gen Con, thanks to the simple rules, interactive element and strong replay value." - Keith Law, Paste

"This is a clever game that shocked me quite a bit, coming out of nowhere and bringing me back to the table for many plays." - Charlie Theel, Ding and Dent

"Cornett has created a clever, tight little strategy game that packs surprising depth into its 15 minute playing time." - William Niebling, ICv2

"Power-house in a small, great looking box." - The Players' Aid

"I think this is a really good game, really well produced, really well put together." - Toucan Play that Game

"This game originally got our attention first of all because [it has] such a beautiful cover, but then more importantly the game play looked very interesting." - Team Covenant

"Elegant and it's got a great replayability." - theMCGuiRE review

"Excellent! I highly recommend it." - Drive Thru Review

"I really enjoyed this game . . . and would heavily recommend [it]." - Ding and Dent

"A very good game. Definitely a 'thinky' game. I highly recommend it if you're into abstract games" - Board Game Show

"If you're a fan of abstract games (especially for 2 players), then you should definitely seek it out." - Project: Gaming Unplugged

"I really like Agamemnon. It's a very fun, very quick, very strategic two player abstract game." - The Discriminating Gamer (TDG)

." . . I like Agamemnon and am eager for a rematch with my friend. It's a game that will require some study and thought to fully grok what's going on and how everything fits together, but I believe it'll be worth the effort." - Go Fatherhood

"Agamemnon is one of the best games Osprey has yet to publish. And they have given us some great games so far. Go ahead; Play the Game, Be a God, Alter Fate." - Two-Gun Pixie

"There's a good bit of strategy, tactics and thinking that goes into this game. It's not an easy game to master, but it's an easy game to play, and I think that's a really cool thing." - The Dice Tower

"It will appeal to those who like abstract, cerebral games like chess or Go. Like those, Agamemnon has the potential to be a classic." - Model Retailer

"Agamemnon is a gorgeously-presented game for 2, with tactical, strategic gameplay supporting its beautiful aesthetics. It's a well-tuned, not overly-long abstract, perfect for those who can excuse its lack of theme. For anyone who seeks a solid 2-player abstract, Agamemnon will fit beautifully into your collection." - Andrew Fisher, Gameosity
