Overview of Philosophia
In Philosophia you are aiming to be the first player to achieve 3 Victory Conditions. You do this by moving around Ancient Greece and performing the 13 different actions available in this Sandbox experience. Here are some examples of the kind of actions you can perform:
Please be aware all components shown are prototypes and not as polished as the final game will be!
Tutor to gain Drachma
Gain Followers around the Ancient World
Unlock Ancient Wisdom
Battle it out in Public Debates
Visit the Oracles to gain Powerful Cards
Progress the Timeline to End the Game
After the timeline reaches 146BC, all players who have gained three Labyrinth Tokens (gained when you achieve Victory Conditions) will battle it out in a tense final debate using an innovative card battle mechanic. If only one player has gained the Labyrinth tokens then they are the winner, however Philosophia has been carefully balanced in a way that makes this event uncommon.

When marketing Philosophia we decided we wanted to be very upfront and honest in our approach. There are no poorly play-tested add ons and extras, designed to squeeze a few more dollars from our backers. We wanted to make each copy of the game as perfect as possible, as such there are no add ons, hidden fees or extras. Pledge at the 'Full Philosophia Experience' level and pay the shipping for your location and you will receive the full Philosophia experience at a cheaper price than MSRP. You will get all the stretch goals, you will be getting the game first and will miss out on nothing! Simple!
We are very confident that you will love Philosophia, so we have put together a variety of methods for you to try the game before you decide whether to back us on Kickstarter.
We have built a full digital version of our game and imported it into Tabletopia. This is free to play on their website which you can reach via the link below.
Note: Our Miniatures are extremely detailed so are too complex to work well with the Tabletopia Game Engine. As such they are not available in this version of the game.
Philosophia can be played on Mobile devices and tablets (again for free) using the amazing Tabletopia app which can be downloaded here:
Tabletop Simulator on Steam
The Tabletop Simulator Version of the game contains simplified Miniatures and can even be played in Virtual Reality. Please be aware that to play on this platform you will need to purchase Tabletop Simulator. However once you have done that we will not charge any extra to play Philosophia.
Print and Play
Feel free to download and make our Print and Play edition of Philosophia. You will need to find suitable replacements for the Miniatures and coins. This Print and Play allows up to 3 players.
We have worked hard with our partners to make sure that you pay as little as possible for your shipping and to make sure that there are no hidden fees for Philosophia!
As we have already completed the artwork, playtesting, marketing and partner negotiations, we are ready to send Philosophia off to our Manufacturers shortly after being funded. As such we plan to get the game to you very quickly. Please see our proposed timeline below for our best estimate as to when you will receive your backer rewards.
Risks and challenges
This is our first project on Kickstarter so we are are being very careful to make sure we can manage it. As all the artwork, marketing and playtesting of the game is complete, the biggest issues we will face are Manufacturing and Shipping.
As such we have decided to team up with experienced partners. Whatz Games (7 Wonders Duel, King of Tokyo, Assassin's Creed The board game) will handle the manufacturing of the game and we aim to use Quatermaster Logistics, Games Quest and Aetherworks for our worldwide shipping. All of these companies are well respected in the industry and have consistently proven their ability to deliver on projects like Philosophia.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
