On your mark! Get set! ROW!
You are the captain of a sleek, speedy trireme, racing in the famous Hydra Regatta. Steer around whirlpools, shifting currents, and fickle gods. Avoid the hungry hydra to win a place among the stars!
In Greece Lightning, players race around a circular track, trying to be the first to complete two laps. You roll two dice to move your boat — but you can risk going faster by rolling a third die. Careful! If you roll lower than your second die, you lose them and keep only your first die!
As you play, the seas shift and transform. You pick up race course wedges that you can place anywhere in the circle (except on top of ships or at the start). Use these to make your path easier or to place a hydra directly in your opponents’ way.
You can also collect “Favour of the Gods” cards, which grant you powerful abilities. Speed through the course to win these favours, traverse whirlpools of fate, and collect fish to feed the hydra.
After two laps around the whirlpool, whoever sailed the furthest wins!
