Monolith Edition has now launched their Kickstarter campaign for Mythic Battles: Isfet! You can now dive in and try out skirmishes on the tabletop with the Egyptian gods and creatures from myth and legend, adding to the extensive range that already covers both Ancient Greece and Norse mythology!

For those not aware of what Mythic Battles is, the game is a two-to-four-player skirmish game where you bring massive 65mm gods and goddesses to the tabletop alongside a drafted force of monsters, heroes and more. You then do battle, looking to beat your opponents and claim power so that you can ascend.

The game has grown and developed since 2017 with the release of Mythic Battles: Pantheon which focused on Greek Mythology. Mythic Battles then expanded into the realm of the Norse gods and now takes to Kickstarter with Mythic Battles: Isfet which focuses on the Egyptian pantheon of gods and the amazing array of creatures and heroes that make up its mythology.

If you'd like to watch one of our classic Let's Plays for the game you can check it out here...

Mythic Battles: Pantheon Demo Game (Original)

When it comes to actually playing the game, Mythic Battles can either be played in Skirmish Mode (more like a regular wargame) or in Adventure Mode which is more narrative and asymmetric, based around a particular scenario that might be drawn from the real myths and legends.

Each player then picks a god from the game's offering and spends recruitment points to bring in heroes, monsters and troops to help fashion their army and tailor it to their tastes. The draft mechanic of Mythic Battles means that you can't always be assured that you'll get the strongest force and there's a great tactical nature to the back and forth between players as they try to counter-pick each other.

Your deck of Activation and Art Of War cards then guide what you can do throughout the course of the game, guiding your actions and determining when you can activate units. This once again means that you'll have to make tough decisions during gameplay based on the cards drawn. You'll have to remember what's in your deck so you make the most of all of your activations!

Let's Play: Mythic Battles - Ragnarök (Thor Vs Freya)

Combat is then dictated by dice which are easy to get your head around, especially due to the innovative way that the dashboards are designed for each hero or warrior you bring to the tabletop. With the mechanics "getting out of your way", it should mean you can spend more time focusing on the tactics in the moment.

You get some great-looking miniatures as part of the Core Box and if you want to stop there you can. But, you can also go All-In when it comes to Isfet and get yourself the Core Box and a whole host of additional extras from Monolith.

Egyptian All In Pledge - Mythic Battles

Egyptian All-In Pledge // Mythic Battles

A core set plus two expansions and a host of extras. More will no doubt be added throughout the course of the campaign as well. However, that's not all. This campaign also features the chance to get your hands on a reprint of Mythic Battles: Ragnarok which introduces the Norse gods into your games of Mythic Battles.

Mythic Battles Ragnarok Contents - Monolith

A seriously hefty set for those who potentially missed out on the Ragnarok Kickstarter from Monolith. As with Isfet, you can just get the core set OR you can go All-In and get yourself everything Norse. You'll have a lot of learning to do trying to work out the different sagas and such that these folks came from!

There are also a lot of different options for you to choose from for Mythic Battles: Pantheon as well. This is a proper celebration of Mythic Battles as a whole so if you've not really tried out the game before, this is well worth diving into and checking out. We've always liked the concept and idea of Mythic Battles and enjoyed playing it over the last few years. So, it's good to see the game expanding once again with an exploration of Egyptian myth and legend.
