    This colorful book breaks down the confusing world of Greek mythology into understandable stories for children with easily understandable language. There are lists and explanations of all the gods and goddesses as well as the Titans and Olympians. Also included are stories involving many of these characters that make up the family dynamic and reasons for the contemptuous relationships among them. Some of the myths and illustrations contain violent occurrences but because of the type of illustrations, nothing is gory. A pocket in the front of the book contains a Greek mythology family tree poster, stickers, and temporary tattoos of Greek characters. An index and pronunciation of Greek names are in the back of the book. ~ Alissa

    Become familiar with the Greek gods and practice mental math while playing this strategic card game. Each player is dealt four cards that will have either a number or a Greek god on them. Players take turns playing a card on "Mount Olympus" and add it to the previous total number. If a number is played by another player that matches a number in your hand, you can do a "same number sneak" playing that card and skip other players that would have been next. Greek god cards have powers such as playing Aphrodite and rounding the total to the nearest multiple of 0 or Ares sending the Mount Olympus total to 50. Throughout the game, take control of Zeus by getting to a total of a multiple of 10 (10, 20, 30…), playing a Greek God that says to steal Zeus, or doing a same number sneak. Get to 100 points while holding on to Zeus and win that round, earning a letter of Zeus. Win 4 rounds to spell out Z-E-U-S to win the game.
