    The story behind Altar: the War of Gods may seem fantastic, strictly imaginary. Mostly, that’s true – but still, there is a wise core in the events around token matches, something interesting to think about.

    Powerful creatures, gods from various real-world mythologies feel a lack of humans’ faith. There are not so many people around the globe, who still believe in personalities from ancient legends. That faith is a kind of energy that keeps all those gods alive and supports their might. Getting more faith is the reason for the War of Gods to happen, so it takes place on the game board.
    Matches of this game happen on a hexagon board with many small internal hexagons to place playing pieces on.

    Three players participate in one battle. The initial step for each of them is a potential sacrifice – players put a token to the central area, an altar. A winner of this match will be able to take all the tokens from the altar or to craft with them a new one.

    To play the match, players get from their collections three tokens each. One by one, participants make their turns, placing a token to the entry point. These tokens are various creatures with three different battle actions. Each token can make a specific number of steps on the game board.

    There are two ways to win a match in the Altar game:

    by clearing the game board from all the other tokens – through battles with them.
    by surrounding the central hexagon (the altar) with a specific number of your tokens.
