(After receiving complaints about this faux-Greek letter font, the designer promised he will change it before the Kickstarter launches).
In Philosophia you are an ancient Greek philosopher who travels around Greece, builds schools, engages in argument fighting with other philosophers, and asks for help from the gods. The game uses auction, card drafting, and even rock-paper-scissors mechanisms for the actions that the players can take.
You win by collecting three Labyrinth tokens before the Romans take over the Greek world.
In the solo mode, you choose one of the philosophers in the game to battle against.
A complaint has been expressed on BGG that the philosophers minis are too big ('Philosozillas' was the term they used). The designer may ask backers if they indeed like their size.
Update September 8: Correction: Philosophia will not be published by Academy Games (I was confused by the similarity in the logo), but will be a self-publication by the designers themselves under the name Cogito Ergo Meeple.
