I've received a lot of great feedback on Hydras, so much so that after months of work and additional play testing I've released a new version of the game. Following is a summary of what's new or changed:

  1. Sword and shield rules have been simplified. No replacement card from the swords. Shields can be used to block ANYTHING from being played on YOUR hydra.
  2. The play deck has been expanded from 45 cards to 60 cards. This will increase the game time slightly, and allow for an even card split for 2, 3 and 4 players.
  3. Labour cards have been added. These cards offer a whole new level of strategy to the game. These cards are still very new, and I can't guarantee that they're perfectly balanced at this time. I'm hoping you guys can help me with that, and offer feedback as to what seems, too simple, too hard, or too confusing.

Rather you're already a fan of the game, or have never played it before, I really hope you try the new version of Hydras. This is a fun little filler game that takes 15-30 minutes to play for 2-4 players. Download and try the new version now!
