I refer to this as "the perfect game." Because it's fun, cheap, quick, and compact.

The portability of this game is a great feature that goes nicely with the low price tag. The tiles are as nice to look at as they are functional. At first the gameplay mechanics seem shallow, but with time and experience there is quite a bit that needs to be taken into account. Troop selection and unit composition become paramount in terms of strategy, I find it particularly fun to hide as many units as I can under Levies (I like the Persians). It has been said that the dice add too much randomness to the game, for some that may be true, but I am firmly in the "more exciting" camp. In my play group there is a longstanding feud between the Persians and the Orcs, so much so that people not involved look forward to the matches. I feel you cannot go wrong with this any in the PB set (although I will admit I do not own CvR... yet) and the price makes it almost a steal.

Only two solo plays so far, but plays as well as the other two sets while being sufficiently different in feel.

Thessaloniki (mostly), Trikala (sometimes), Meteora (at least once per Trikala trip), Athens (whenever possible), -how many more characters does it accept? Impressive! so I'm moving on with my list- Koromilia, Kavourotripes, Samothraki, Jogja, Bruxelles..

I already wrote a short review of the ElvesVSOrcs version of these games - so really, just read that.
Now I have 3 different Pocket Battles, and they are all fun. The strategy and tactics become very apparent after a few games. They are so deceptively simple, yet quite well balanced. I've been wiped out due to stupidity and bad luck. But the more I play, the more it is poor choices that are my downfall. And, while the outcome of a game can come down to the roll of one dice, it never feels like you were cheated from victory. It always feels, when such a roll determines the outcome, like you and your opponent have done your very best to mitigated each others fortune to the best of your ability.
Can't wait to mix and mach armies. I really hope the reprints I have indicate a likelihood of more Pocket Battle modules. Maybe more Fantasy ones, or sci-fy maybe?

These are fantastic games--I really wish they would make more armies.

Extremely well produced.

Good to see them get back to the Ancients armies rather than fantasy stuff. I think this game is better suited to those types of battles.

I'm not really sure how much I like this set compared to Celts vs Romans (or Elves vs Orcs). I think I need to play it more to really get my head around how these two factions are unique.

Surprising depth, visually appealing and affordable... a very nice combination! I find I prefer the historical themes with this game more than the fantasy theme. But that's just me, your mileage may vary.

Really excited about this game - it's simple yet intense and I bought orcs.v.elves on the strength of this one and would other armies if they were available.

A great way to get a few very quick wargames in, with minimal preparation required.
