This aside, HAMMER OF THE GODS is a light, enjoyable strategy game that will appeal more to newcomers or casual gamers far more than it will with the hard-core types. And while this has become a pretty generic euphemism for a weak game, this is not quite the case here. In the quest for the mythic “Introductory Strategy Game,” I believe this game is a contender for the title. Seasoned players looking with a hard eye will find all sorts of little weaknesses in the game, and unless you play it fairly cutthroat with your friends, it isn't going to strain your tactical skills.
