2. the scenarios are interesting (esp. camps and cities)
3. the designer provided lots of background information
4. lots of elephants
5. interesting command system

An interesting new take on the GBoH series. A good mix of varied scenarios with cool terrain and units unique to the ancient Indian era of battle it simulates.

Improved Alexander "engine"! New units - and tactics Kudos to designer and developer, because battles require very different strategies than in more famous Alexander or SPQR.

Historicity of scenarios can be somewhat suspicious (less than ideal sources), but I don`t mind. Did I mention there are Greeks here also?

A nice addition to the GBoH Series. The scenarios with the Macedonians and Seleucids are next on my playlist. Very Cool! Rating increased after more playing...excellent game!

This easily could have been a ten but I think the complexity of learning the system (at first) knocks it down a notch.

I like the game for diferent things:
first one: the historic moment, war in India before Christ.
Second: I am fan of GBoH.
Thrid: The game have a a lot of and diferent scenarios.
Fourth: I can use chariots, a lot of archers and war elephants his special rules, (more interesant this rules)
And finally in the game are new ideas; for example a nigth attack;or grade,

The optional rule of dharmayuddha is very interesant because is more historic and normally I use this rule. the other rule, random selection, normally not use.

Definitively, the game is well balanced and more entertaining.

I'm more of a HI/HO type really but this game is fun despite having close to zilch heavy infantry (apart from Seleucus).

Very novel take on the GBoH system. Well worth trying out.

I think is the most creative game idea to enter the GBoH lineup. I pushed counters finally and like a lot more. Hence I've upped my rating. Thanks, for bringing this obscure (at least in the west) topic to us.

Repeated playing has forced me to raise my grade. The India-specific rules for this game are distinctive, and reinvigorate a system I have been playing for 17 years. Still, I have never felt that GBoH handles Elephants well, and there are Elephants aplenty in India. The notes from the Designer, found on both BGG and CSW, are great.

Elephants! Chariots! Elephants pulling chariots! By no fault of this game, it is hard to get over that Indian warfare was so ridiculous. Eight varied scenarios and plenty of pachyderms make this great fun.

My first play of GMT game. Love the packaging, map, counters, scenario/historical details. Rules are wide and deep and took several reads. Found myself continually flipping pages. Played first scenario, Pataliputra, solo. A good intro to the system. Nandas stomped. Clear fields are a bit boring so looking forward to next scenario's play.

Great addition to the GBoH line. This is really a very fine game about a very interesting topic. The rules are very well written and it offers a good variety of units and scenarios.
I think it might go up in rank after a few more plays.

See review. This is a complex, detailed simulation of ancient battles in India, with chariots, elephants, longbowmen, and varied terrain. Highly recommended.
