by A Gamer
One of the best games ever
September 06, 2006

This game is of of GMT's classic Great Battles of History, or as they say, GBoH. Being a war-gamer since the early 1970's, I have had many war games, as much as 60 at one time. I now have 45 and this game is one of them. I especially love the ancient times. When I first purchased this game I bought the basic version, but later up-graded it to the Deluxe version. It is one of my 3 personal all time favorites. I feel that it is very close to history's version of Alexander's time. There are lots of good- looking counters to put on the well-made maps. Because there are several different scenarios, Alexander's Greeks will not just battle the same Persians, but different enemies, including other Greeks. I also bought one of the modules for this game (Tryant) and presently pre-ordered another one. As well as I like this game, I do feel that the battles are somewhat unbalanced. Every time I have played the Greeks have won, although there were lots of close calls for Alexander. If you love ancient history, then this game is for you.
