Mythology tells that Zeus sent two eagles to fly from two opposite points of the world. Where these birds met, Zeus would place the Omphalos stone to mark the center of the universe. The Tholos of Delphi, inside the Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, would be built as a place of worship and veneration as a sign of this sacred place.
Take part in the construction of the Tholos of Delphi, the temple that marks the center of the universe marked by Zeus and built inside the Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia. As a builder, face your opponent in a duel and achieve the greatest influence within its sacred construction. May the gods be propitious to you!
Tholos is a game of majorities for two players with high interaction. On a turn, you take one of two actions:
When all seven columns have five stones on them, the game ends and players receive points for each column where they have more stones than the opponent — but this isn't necessarily a good thing. When you score a column, you receive 1 point for each stone of your color, 3 points for each stone of the opposing color, and -2 points for each neutral stone. each column awards points to the player who has the most stones of their color in that column.
In the advanced mode of Tholos, you place one or more ornament tiles on the game board, each in a different location. Each ornament tile has a power that changes the rules of the game, such as activating the power of a location with gray stones, awarding a column to the player with fewer stones than the opponent, or raising the maximum number of stones in the location's column to seven.
