Santorini review available online
Santorini is a beginner-friendly positional game that is based on an abstract basis. The fact that Greek gods of all people had to serve as the background story is probably due to the popularity of ancient Greece. The manufacturer Spin Master writes about Santorini:

Because here it says: Build like a mortal and win like a god. The strategy game, developed by mathematician and teacher Gordon Hamilton, has no luck in its basic variant. Santorini impresses with its easy entry, high tactical depth - despite the simplest rules - and its impressive, three-dimensional game material: step by step, a great, detailed image of the island of Santorini is created. And if you want something more challenging, you can play with the 30 god cards, which have even more strategic possibilities and surprise effects. Santorini - for 2-4 city planners, ages 8+. "
We meandered through the narrow streets of houses on Santorini and had a lot of fun.
