Subject: Archidamos War
I played the -431BC scenario with a veteran wargamer this week-end.
Although he was very reluctant to play block games he was totally convinced by Hellenes (I was already)
What we liked most:
- the tactical combat system. Even if it is not new, we found it very adapted to the antic period. It was surprising in a strategic system.
- the map which is looks really beautiful once blocks are placed.It is also very well designed in terms of distances between strategic cities or sea movement
- the force pool which is really well thought
- a lot of very small simple rules that add chrome without complexity: recruiting process, barbarians vs greeks, siege process, skirmishing and retreat process, boats on land, revolts and events, leaders
So let's come to the review:
-431BC was an horrible year for the Athenians. The allied Armies of her ennemies put siege on the city and plague struck twice during the year ! The Athenian army was in total dissaray and Pericles was among the victims. The siege of Potidea was without progress. Fortunately the bigger part of the fleet was outside on the sea during the plague.

Well good job guys for Hellenes, we really liked the game.
I will not finish my after action report. Went for lunch and saved before finishing. Never thought that Sessions needed a review.
Saves me part of my afternoon after all not to post.
