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.

from J C Lawrence (clearclaw):
One side of the board contains the fertile crescent and the eastern Mediterranean, the other side of the board contains the entire Mediterranean.

translated literally, this means "horse's nose". this game covers a lot of the same ground and water as 'Mare Mediterraneum'. the picture shows the game with the mythology expansion.

this site shows where the seven wonders of the ancient world were located:

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.

this game board shows only the eastern part of the region.

the ancient city of byzantium was founded by greeks in 667 bc and named for king byzas. constantine refounded the city as constantinople in 330 ad, creating a hub for an eastern roman empire, which is also refered to as byzantium.

here is a timeline that starts with constantine:

the region is still highly contested during world war one. by this time the suez canal had been established and was being held by the british. "the suez canal" is, of course, a palindrome.
