Build like a mortal, win like a God in the game of Santorini, the strategic family board game by Gordon Hamilton. The objective is simple: Be the first player to build, block, and climb your way to the top of a building three stories high. Sounds easy? Not so fast! Santorini requires tactical manoeuvring and increases in difficulty with the addition of extra powers via “god” cards. With thousands of possibilities and unlimited replay value, each round of Santorini is exciting and new! Unfold the beautiful game board and challenge your friends and family to construct gorgeous buildings! Both kids and adults can play this game that tests the bounds of mortal intelligence. Join the pantheon of winners in the game of Santorini!
This is the retail version that became available at Target in August 2017.The SpinMaster version does not have the following:
- Golden Fleece expansion
- Ocean Board
- When comparing the worker figures from the SpinMaster base game and those from the Golden Fleece expansion (which was made by Roxley), they are a slightly different color/tone and the mold/sculpt is a little off. It’s not a big deal, but you can certainly tell them apart. I don’t have the Roxley version of the base game, but I’d assume the figures from the expansion are a better match to those from the Roxley version.
- The Cliff Pedestal is different in that the SpinMaster version does not need the extra bottom tabs to secure it to Ocean Board.
- The instruction manual is 2 pages shorter and does not include any details about the Golden Fleece expansion, nor its components. This is especially unfortunate since the Roxley version of the instructions gives in-depth descriptions of the Gold Fleece Gods and Heroes, none of which are provided with the expansion itself.
