Reviews & Comments:
BGG Donald Dennis:"Great kids game, where the players scramble to gain the Zeus figure. A fun diversion that allows younger kids to play while accidentally polishing their addition skills."
BGG Manuel Pombeiro:"One of the best filler gamers all around adding to this that it is also one of the best kids games, and topping it all, it still is a blast with non-gamers or gamers alike."
BGG Marc B.:"Another family card game in the gamewright card game series. This one is a lot of fun with mixed age group. As per gamewright it's very easy to teach and get started. It quickly becomes a laughing grabbing moaning and groaning good time. plays well with the listed age group of 8 and up. Perfect for a quick 15 minutes of fun before kids are off to bed."
BGG Mike Adams:"Fun, quick card game that takes little thought. My daughter in particular loves it. This is the game I would suggest to people who like Uno but are willing to try something else - it's faster, less random, and has an awesome Zeus figure you can steal and slam down on the table. Gave a copy to my daughter's teacher who loved it so much she picked up more Gamewright games for her classroom, which the kids have loved."
BGG Michael Erb:"Though very kid-friendly, “Zeus on the Loose” is fun and engaging for adults as well. This is a good filler game when you are waiting for other players to arrive or when you need a short but still entertaining game. The more players you add the crazier the fun, and since it supports up to five players, this is a perfect game for a family or small group of friends."

How To Play: Catch Zeus if you can! The great Greek god has bolted from Mount Olympus and it's up to you to nab this dashing deity. Play cards strategically, adding numbers as you climb up the mythic mountain. Grab Zeus when the total reaches a multiple of 10. Better yet, summon the strength of Apollo, Poseidon, or all-powerful Hera to bring Zeus within your grasp. Reach the top of Mount Olympus with Zeus in hand and you're a mortal among the gods. To play is human. To win, divine! Download the rules below.
