Sales of the Elysium board game have skyrocketed on Amazon thanks to a massive sale that dropped the game under $20. At the time of writing the price has increased a bit to $20.10 (66% off), but that's still just a shade off an all-time low. Grab it here with the discount while you can. The official description reads:
"Take on the role of an ambitious demigod who is trying to claim a place at the summit of Mount Olympus. Recruit heroes, acquire artifacts, undertake quests and earn the favour of the gods. When your allies fulfill their destiny, they enter Elysium, and contribute to your legend. Once all the tales are written, a single demigod will join the Olympians. The goal of the game is to earn as many victory points as possible. Victory points are won mostly with the legends that players will write through the cards that they have transferred to their Elysium, but also by employing the powers that they have assembled throughout the game by the means of specific cards."
The contents include: 168 cards; Temple board; Oracle board; 6 Quest tiles; 16 Columns; 4 order of play Discs; Epoch marker; 19 Bonus tiles; 40 Gold tokens; 45 Victory Point tokens; 25 Prestige Point tokens; 12 Trigger
