Product Description

Product Description

Catch Zeus if you can! The great Greek God has bolted from Mount Olympus and it's up to you to nab this dashing deity. Play cards strategically, adding numbers as you climb up the mythic mountain. Grab Zeus when the total reaches a multiple of 10. Better yet, summon the strength of Apollo, Poseidon or all-powerful Hera to bring Zeus within your grasp. Reach the top of Mount Olympus with Zeus in hand and you're mortal among the gods. To play is human....to win, divine!

Box Contains

  • 56 x Cards
  • 1 x Zeus figurine

    This addictive game combines a great theme (Greek mythology) with good tactics and some basic math thrown in. It plays quickly and we often bring it out with our 8yo son, equally enjoyed by him and us adults.Highly recommended, as well as the other Gamewright card games, where the ones we have tried all have great staying power:

    - Sleeping Queens is currently our family's favourite card game, requested over and over again by our 5yo and (almost) 8yo and equally enjoyed by us parents. While the age recommendation is from 8 years, our 5yo has no problems with the rules and tactics of the game (although she does need help with basic addition which is a minor component).

    - Duck Duck Bruce (simple push your luck game, perfect from as early as 3-4 and great fun for adults as well, our favourite after Sleeping Queens, perfect to bring to restaurants/airports)

    - Rat a Tat Cat (the first Gamewright game we tried with our then 5,5 yo, a firm favourite for a year or so until displaced by Duck Duck Bruce, but still very much recommended.)

    Frog Juice also get great reviews, will be ordering it for Christmas this year!

    (Come to think of it, we have also tried Too Many Monkeys which is quite uninteresting, at least to adults. Try the above ones instead.)

    I am a mum and a secondary school maths teacher and all the children I have played Zeus on the Loose with absolutely love it. My son is 6 and manages to play independently. When we play at school maths club play is a bit more fast and furious. My children like Percy Jackson and Horrible Histories and like the Greek god cards. It's good for mental maths and thinking strategically.

    When purchasing this I thought it seemed expensive for a card game, but we've played this so much, that I have truly had good value for money.

    On the plus side:
    - Game is fast paced, can change quickly and provides twists and turns
    - It provides some number practice with adding of numbers, rounding to nearest 10 and reversing numbers
    - God theme is fun and engaging

    However:
    - A lot of luck is involved with winning, however well you play
    - Opportunities for strategic thinking are limited due to the luck in which cards your opponents happen to have

    Overall:
    - Not the most satisfying game
    - As a family we've enjoyed and played other GameWright games far more e.g. Loot, Rat-a-tat Cat

    A fast, fun game to play with nieces/nephews, with enough luck and randomness that any round of the game could be won by any player! We play it with more than the 5 people max that it lists (we've done 7 just fine). Just make sure that the kids have decent addition skills so that they can keep up with the total as cards are played; that will help to keep the game moving quickly.

    Great for playing with ones children as it will sharpen their mental maths .
    A quick fun game which relies on strategy as well as luck .
    The aim to get the card total to 100 or more with Zeus figure in your hand to win while opponents scheme to take him .
    At first glance one may be put off by the maths aspect , don't
    Once playing the goal is all you think about and games don't last more than 10 minutes at my house

    Great game. Not only are the cards well made and the concept of mathermatics adding and subtractiing to reach 100 relovant in reinforcing mental arithmetic. The taking of turns and sequencing while also getting my children 13 7 5 to research some greek gods made the game a big hit in our house.

    My son loves this game and it is suitable to play with a range of ages of children. It helps mental maths in terms of quick adding and knowing the next ten in a sequence and is fast and fun. The Greek characters have been described in a fun way which also links to school Greek topic work! Would definately recommend!

    We got this game to play with our 7 & 8 yr olds. It is a fun game for all and the adults don't need to hold back as there are enough god cards that turn the tables in an instant. However, it is not so much to chance that it is frustrating and it is good for the mental arithmetic, so good practice for the kids.
