Spoils Of War

When a player wins a round on a card that has this icon, that player plays the action from that card. Although Zeus thinks his ability is the best, just wait till Poseidon’s Tidal Wave is invoked when you’re about to run out of cards!

Gods Rule

Before starting a game, remove all odd-ranked cards, leaving more opportunities to have war with the Greek gods.

Battle Mode

A drawing of two greek helmets facing each other in orange colors.

Expand your war up to 6 players by mixing two decks together. Wars are played with one card facedown instead of three.

The Original

To play similarly to the original War game (typically using 52 cards), you can remove all Greek god cards from play.

A deck of Cards At War cut in half, with both halves side-by-side. The Hades card is placed across the two halves.

What’s In The Box?

Each deck contains 74 cards made up of 14 epically-illustrated Greek god cards, 55 Grecian urn cards, instructions, and one part to a bonus that a puzzle practitioner or escape enthusiast would enjoy!
