Product Description

Hellenes is a block game by Craig Besinque (EastFront, Rommel in the Desert) covering the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta in the 5th century BC.

Hellenes includes two standard scenarios 431-422 BC and 413-404 BC, plus a short introductory game covering Sicily only 415-413 BC, and a combined 415-404 BC Sicilian Campaign game. Land, sea and siege warfare are covered, and Pillaging is a significant method of gaining Prestige, upon which Victory is based. Play is card-driven with dual-usage cards having an Event and an Action Value, only one of which can be used when played. A game-year consists of 4 seasons, each player playing one card per season. Lower action values go first (Events having zero action value). A combat phase follows each player's Actions phase, during which field battles and Siege assaults are resolved, or Siege Attrition is waged.

Playing time is 3-4 hours for the standard games, 2 hours for the short game and 4-5 hours for the 415 BC Campaign game.
