When most of us hear the term 'Grease Lightning', we tend to think of John Travolta standing on top of a Ford De Luxe pointing shamelessly. However, Wizkids have announced their new push-for-luck board game with the country Greece as opposed to Grease, where players race across the Mediterranean Sea, leaving opponents amongst the waves behind them. Announcing Greece Lightning.

Greece Lightning // Wizkids

Taking the role of Captain of a sturdy racing ship, hoping to avoid the dangers that the Mediterranean has to offer. And as we are plunged into the realms of Greece, hiding amongst the waves are shifting tides, aggravated whirlpools and Gods alike the infamous Hydra awaiting to take their next victim.

Players will make their way around a track on the board, which forms a circle from start to finish. The first player to reach the finish line after successfully completing two laps around the board will be crowned champion. All sounds simple? Well, if you are not a friend of the dice and your roll is not on your side - you'll need to leave the fate of your ship to avoid the dangers awaiting at sea.

The Hydra lurking in the waters can be twisted as a friend to yours and a foe to others. You can collect fish to feed the hungry hydra to get him off of your tail, or sabotage your opponent's pathways by placing them in harm's way. Be warned, the loyalty of the Hydra simply lies with the roll of the dice!

Greece Lighting is designed for 2-4 players, where you can enjoy a competitive experience lasting anywhere between 45-60 minutes. The difficulty of the game does not seem too complex, using cards and dice to determine the success of the player throughout the game.

The game will be heading to retail this Summer, landing straight on our tabletops in June 2021.

Greece Lightning, Go Greece Lightning.
