A beautiful game of Heroic Greece, which combines war with economics, godly intervention, oracles and dynastic diplomacy. Sacrificing to the gods or consulting the Oracle can help or hinder you in war or trade. Your nation has a ruling dynasty, and if you have daughters and sons to marry, the more power to you. One can even mount a raid on another player in order to kidnap his daughter!
Combat is simple, and the overrun rule maybe a little too powerful.
There is a companion game called Troy which is concerned with the siege of Troy.
