Early next year will see the release of what appears to be a pretty unique game, designed by Madeleine Cole and Joseph Adams, from Cogito ergo Meeple. In Philosophia: Dare to be Wise, players will take the roles of ancient history’s renowned philosophers as they look to expand their influence and be declared the greatest mind. The game is for one to six players, ages 14+, plays in 45 to 120 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $79.00 when it arrives in Q2 2021.
About the game:
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.”
Pericles (circa 495-429 BCE)
Live an Epic, Odyssey adventure; as one of Ancient Greece’s greatest thinkers in this new Sandbox, Tabletop experience. Forge your destiny in an age of city states and ancient wisdom. In Philosophia, you will build schools, battle it out in public debates, learn profound wisdom and make deals with the Olympic Gods. All in an attempt to prove yourself the greatest mind of the era.
The goal in Philosophia is to gain three Labyrinth Tokens before the ancient Greek World is superseded by the Romans. There are many different paths you can take to do this; from building schools dedicated to your teachings, to locking yourself away in temples to develop your ideas. All players who gain 3 Labyrinth tokens will finish the game with a tense final public debate; exchanging Sophistry and Syllogistic arguments until one thinker is crowned the greatest. Good luck!
Philosophia, has been carefully designed to be a replay-able game with premium components.
