Overview

Kanzume Goddess is a game about a war between two rival pantheons of Gods and Goddesses; the Norse Gods lead by Odin and the Greek Gods led by Zeus. Each player takes the role of one of the Gods and battles to come out on top using various warriors based upon the Zodiac.

Kanzume Goddess is a deck building game in the vein of Dominion, Ascension, Nightfall, Tanto Cuore, and Thunderstone. As with those games, you are given a basic set of cards to start with and a field of other cards to purchase and build your deck. In this game, rather than compete for victory points, the goal is to deal damage to your opponents and knock them out of the game.

We discovered this game during our travels abroad and thought that it would be a great project to translate and bring over here. The artwork is all very nice and it's a pretty fun game to boot. We've seen a lot of interest in Tanto Cuore and its expansions and felt like it was time to try something new. We're already working on the translations and it's ready to go to print as soon as those are done so we're looking at a reasonably quick turnaround here.

What Sets This Apart From Other Deck Building Games?

Each player will be playing the part of one of the warring Gods, granting them access to powers that no one else at the table will have, making each player play differently. This game is also more adversarial than other deck building games. Rather than have the feeling that you are basically playing solitaire with several others, you will be battling one another to come out on top.
