Further to my http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/17405 Geeklist, I'm looking for a game that has an Ancient Greek theme, can be learnt and played in 45 minutes, and isn't just for 2 players (which rules out Hellas).

I work for a school, and the last day of the term all the Honors students will be gone, and I'm trying to help out the teacher of Ancient Greek with a fun activity. The theme doesn't have to be tooooo strong - for example, for the latin class, I'm planning on playing Ave Caesar.

ANy suggestions welcome.

Timothy

My first game was 3-player and lasted an hour so I figured once you know how to play it it should go fairly quickly. Maybe not.

Ahuh. I also need to teach it within that time too.

I know we have Attika in my gaming group, so I'll see if I can learn it, and then borrow it when I need it.

Attika seems the right choice, although it's 2-4 players. I got bored with it quite fast, but as an introduction game it's very good.
