One way or another, those multiplication tables have to be mastered, and you can either plug away with the ol' flashcards, or take part in an epic clash of the titans with this engaging, yet educational card game. Each game includes two decks of cards: Norse and Egyptian or Celtic and Greek. It's a duel between two players, each of which "battles" with one deck from the set (if you have both sets, you can mix and match). The deck consists of gods, monsters, heroes, minions, weapons and magic cards, each of which has an attack and defense value, or another special attribute. The game begins with both players drawing five cards from their deck and playing as many of them on the central "field" as possible. Character cards can always be played, but weapons must be attached to a character to be played. The first player then uses their cards to attack their opponent's cards. To do this, they'll need to keep close tabs on the attack values of their own cards, and the defense values of their opponent's cards, which are stated as a multiplication problem such as "7x8." A player can attack an opponent's card if their attacking card has a higher attack value than their opponent's defense value but the ability to use several weak cards to "gang up" on a higher-value one and the special instructions on "magic" cards make this much more than a game of multiplication war. The game continues until a player has depleted their draw deck, and the player who has "plundered" the most cards is declared the victor. Besides the "battle" aspect, kids and adults alike are sure to enjoy reading the tidbits about the various gods, heroes and monsters depicted on the cards, taking in a little mythology along the way. My only complaint? The somewhat vague instructions. Although I'm sure the designers wanted to keep it simple, you will have to read between the lines and perhaps make up some of your own rules to apply to various situations not addressed in the rules. Now gather up your army of mythical creatures, raise your banner and charge! Jess
