The ancient Greeks from Phocaea urgently want to expand their domains. They are sailing for the Iberian peninsula to establish a permanent trading spot. In a tiny island close to the northern east coast, the newcomers will found Emporion, the first great Greek settlement on the peninsula. From there, they will try to increase their fame and fortune by commanding expeditions, trading valuable goods with Athens, competing to win the favor of Gods, and promoting the Hellenistic culture throughout the Iberian lands.
In more detail, in Emporion, players buy cards and place them in their play areas. These cards help players to improve their armies, build spectacular and diverse constructions, trade goods, explore new lands, and perform cultural events.
