Terence Turnovsky 10 8 8 A good system, once I understood the combat rules. I will buy more.
Ken Filewood 10 4 6 Not played, but have played similar 'Sparta!'. Good for a free game, especially the counters. Mechanics promise broader application to ancient settings. Thank you to the author for sharing.

Frederick Ellsesser 9 8 9 can't beat the price! Straightforward game of an ancient battle. Good
Elijah Lau 3 5 3 Very fiddly. The two-chart reference combat system is a pain! And while I recognise the designer's intent of using alphabet codes to create generic units so they have wider application, it also necessitates more referencing.

Kim DS 10 10 10 This free game is an introduction to a series planned by Roberto Chiavini. Have not had an opportunity to play this, but the rules appear clear, and it looks likely to be an interesting game. The rules include suggestions for optional Advanced Rules,
