Kreta is a maze game with a twist. You play Ariadne, who was the love of Theseus in the Greek myth of the Minotaur. Once Theseus was in the labyrinth, he used a piece of yarn (given to him by Ariadne) to find his way back out of the maze. Of course, the whole time he’s got the Minotaur at his back. In Kreta, you actually play Ariadne, who is trying to rescue Theseus. But the twist is that you and the Minotaur (who only wants to kill you) can play certain cards which have specfic effects on you or the Minotaur. Most are simple movement cards for getting around the maze. Other cards are more nefarious, like turning the Minotaur to stone for a bit. It’s a fast and fun game, sort of a cross between a maze and Mille Bornes.
