Rise of the Amazons

Dominate the ancient world as legendary Amazon warriors while dealing with godly curses and facing fierce opposition from heroes such as Heracles and Achilles. Monsters like Cerberus, The Sphinx, The Minotaur, or The Hydra also seek to oppose the warriors. Rise of the Amazons is designed by Alcyon Creative, is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, and features euro style action management for 1-4 players, aged 10+, with game play lasting 60 – 90 minutes.

Playable characters include Antianera, Penthesilea, Hippolyta, and Alcippe, who each have different classes, characteristics, and favorite gods. They are supported by their fellow Amazon sisters such as Antiope, Melanippe, Antimache, Otrera, Atalanta, and many others. Players can choose to dominate the ancient world on a historical or fantasy set map, and includes miniatures representing the Amazon warriors.

The game will only be released on Kickstarter and is already at 150% of its funding goal with over 280 backers. The Rise of the Amazons Kickstarter campaign ends on Wednesday, July 22nd 2020, with estimated delivery planned for February of 2021.
