In 500 BC, Ionia rebelled against the Persian regime and Greece supported it. With this "foreign interference" as an excuse, the Persian Empire has decided to invade Greece. In 492 BC, the Persian forces attacked Greece on the ground and by sea. The Persians and the Greeks fought with fierce marathon, thermopyl and salamis. Against the overwhelming forces of the Persian Empire, the Greeks used superior tactics and "weapons" such as hoplites (heavy infantry) and trireth. The Greeks also had excellent leaders in times of crisis and ended up winning over the Persians.
300: Earth and waterisA wargame for two players. A player controls the Greeks, gathered around the Athenians, and the other controls the Persians, fighting for the hegemony of the eastern Mediterranean. Through the five expeditions, each player fights to control more cities than his opponent.
The game engine is a "card drive" system. Players raise armies and buy cards during the production phase. The cards can be used to play an event or move an army or a fleet. Events can provide advantages in battles or interfere with the enemy, but military action is essential to win. In addition, each part is different (depending on the order in which events occur).
The rules are simple and the playing time is short, but Greece and Persia have a wide range of strategies, so victory will challenge the two players.
