    Gods and Goddesses are mercurial beings, given to jealousy and treachery, but they can also possess compassion and valor.

    Who among the pantheon can win enough glory among their believers, so that their story of mythic victory can be passed down through the generations?

    They Who Were 8 is a game for 2-4 players where each player serves two Gods, seeking to praise them for their Glory, and trying to avoid stories of their Infamy.

    The game can be played in two different ways:

    • Titanomachy:
    A game for 2-4 players trying to achieve an individual victory.

    • Pantheon:
    A partnership game for 4 players, played in two teams of 2.

    In both of these games, the players take actions that represent a bard’s retelling of the ancient story of They Who Were 8. They may also call upon the powers of their Gods to control the narrative and establish their version of the saga as the one told for eternity.

    Note: They Who Were 8 was inspired by a cycle of poems by Todd Sanders written in 1999. The poems are fragments of a larger ancient saga, lost to time.
