Diplomacy OK it has a lot of superflous Europe and other bodies of water, but it does have both the Eastern and Western Mediterranean.

The new "civ-lite" contender. High on my wanted list.

One side of the board contains the fertile crescent and the eastern Mediterranean, the other side of the board contains the entire Mediterranean.

this one again uses the region's rich history of trade as it's theme, focusing on the phoenicians. the phoenicians are best known for establishing the phoenician alphabet which was later developed by nasa into a nutritous food product we know as alphabet soup. they also were known for thier work in the window covering industry.

The Southern and Eastern Mediterranean get plundered for ancient relics by fame-hungry archaeologists from (presumably) the North of Europe.
