Description
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”
Pericles (circa 495-429 BCE)

Live an Epic, Odyssey adventure; as one of Ancient Greece’s greatest thinkers in this new Sandbox Tabletop experience. Forge your destiny in an age of city states and ancient wisdom. In Philosophia, you will build schools, battle it out in public debates, learn profound wisdom and make deals with the Olympic Gods. All in an attempt to prove yourself the greatest mind of the era.

The goal in Philosophia is to gain three labyrinth tokens before the ancient Greek World is superseded by the Romans. There are many different paths you can take to do this; from building schools dedicated to your teaching, to locking yourself away in temples to develop your ideas. All players who gain 3 Labyrinth tokens will finish the game with a final public debate; exchanging Sophistry and Syllogistic arguments until one thinker is crowned the greatest. Good luck!

This version of the game is for 2-3 players follow the links below for different player counts:

@☭F.R.I.E.N.D.S☭ I'm so glad you enjoyed the game! Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I'm a philosophy teacher and this is exactly what I was hoping philosophy fans would get from it!

This game is great! It has really nice models and a cool map. The mechanics aren't groundbreaking, but very intuitive (once you get used to the different actions) and engaging. The various paths to victory contribute to a nice strategy-game experience, which is neither too difficult nor too easy for a fun casual gaming evening with friends.Oh and did I mention the setting? It's hilarious. Beating Sokrates as Homer with argumenta ad hominem and ad populum in the final debate is every sophists wet dream. A must play for every fan of philosophy and/or antiquity :D

@stepal I've made a 1 player setup. It's setup for you playing as Aristotle against an AI Socrates but if you change around the starting items you can play as/against anyone you like as all the required tokens are on the table. Thanks again for all your feedback it is invaluable!

I can't believe I didn't think of that! I'll set it up tonight and link it in here when it's done. Thanks again for the feedback stepal I've just responded to your comment on BGG as well. I think we will have to put your name into the rulebook if you keep helping us like this! It is genuinely appreciated.

Could you imlement the solo setup? It would save us a lot of trouble, if we hadn't to remove manually the non-playable cards etc.
