I have played games/scenarios covering the siege of Tyre by Alexander the Great and I am interested in more--much more. Here are the following games that I have found that cover the battle on BGG (either the whole game is dedicated to the battle/siege or it contains a scenario(s) covering the battle):

The Art of Siege
Field Commander: Alexander
Alexander at Tyre
Tyre

Are there more? If so, please add.

Also, which ones are the best?

Thanks.

Robert, this one looks interesting: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...

As you know, your "Tyre" entry is simply one of the games from "The Art of Siege." Others might not know that.

I played the SPI Type game and it was pretty interesting how the mole building and sea battles were handled. Sieges are tough as traditional wargames since the time scales are operational while the map scale is tactical.

I think I just saw that Decision Games has a reissue of this on pre-order.

I've had Alexander at Tyre for years but have never gotten around to playing it. It's a nice-looking game though, and I've read some glowing reviews. I'll try to get it on the table the next time I'm in an ancients mood.
