TURNING POINT SIMULATIONS: The Siege of Syracuse 415-413 BC
Maybe one of the oddest things about the lengthy Peloponnesian War is that, after decades of balance, the Athenians actually lost it with a campaign well away from the Greek mainland.
The Athenians have a mighty host of fleets and men, filled with confidence. The Syracusans have a long history of clinging to their independence (and powerful allies coming to foil Athens).
Combat units include cavalry, light troops, peltasts, and the heavily armed hoplites-the backbone of both sides' armies. You the players can decide your best approaches for attack and defense, selecting from pitched battles or skirmishes.or building miles of siege walls.
The Siege of Syracuse includes:
* One full color, 11x17-inch mounted mapboard
* One 8.5x11-inch battle board
* 176 large, full color, die-cut counters
* 12-page rulebook
