I LOVE THIS GAME!!! It really captures the feel of the epic siege of Jerusalem. Both sides have to plan their strategy carefully. Mistakes made early on can really affect the outcome. The only drawback for this game is the length of play. The complete siege can't be played in a weekend! Takes several weekends to complete.

This is one of the most intense games I know. Because of the igo-hugo game system and bloody combat system, each side can expect a total roller coaster ride of emotions -- when it's your turn you're thinking "I'm winning, I'm winning, I'm winning! Whee!" And then your opponent takes his go and it's "I'm doomed, I'm doomed, flee, save yourselves." Great stuff.

One of the best wargames ever. While the campaign game is long, each of the scenarios is interesting and playable. The campaign game is remarkable for a siege game because you have real options about which wall and which section of the wall you will attack next.

My third favorite game behind Empires in Arms and World in Flames. The amount of carnage is unbelievable, and it is an incredible simulation of siege warfare, something I have not seen done anywhere else. Beautiful map too.

Also has the unique aspect where after each 'assault phase', you take all the counters of the map and then reset up your units for the next phase. This allows you to not have to keep the game set up in between phases. Variable endings too. Cannot find a flaw in this game.

Muy bueno aunque la secuencia de juego es un poco rara. La campaña es muyyy larga. Romano en terreno despejado = romano muerto.

Not an ancients guy but this is a fantastic game!

I like the way the game progressively assaults different portions of the city and slowly squeezes the city down.

This is a demanding game: space, time, involvement. But what a pleasure to play, both strategically and tactically.

In fact each assault should not last this long: often the Roman player should seek to end it as soon as possible with the least loss possible.

Narrative is excellent and very fun. Still the game goes faster with 6 players, 4 Romans and 2 Jews.

Epic. A total blast. Perfect four player game. Nice blend of epic grand tactical and strategy (prep between assault phases). See my session reports (Fall 2012) here on BGG.

A little hard to learn, but very rewarding. You'll need a big table space to lay this out, as the map is huge!

This game has it all Mines, balista, Legionares in Testudo formations, desperate rock throwing millitia. This game is not a cakewalk for either side. Great game, of course I am increadably interested in siege warfare
By the way I've heard of people using this map for Squad Leader/ASL does anyone know how well it works?

Fantastic game about a really weird topic. It is necessary a big, big table to play it. Exciting tactical problems. Perfect simmulation about ancient siege technics. A must have, but a game that is not easy to find

Another game I had but lost and had to get again, picked a copy up mint and unpunched copy on ebay for $30 US! The counters are old but the map is timeless, you can find more scenarios online and the subject matter is compelling.

Refined version originally designed by Historical Persectives (both versions are good). This game is the historically underappreciated prequel battle to Masada...the few survivors from Jerusalem fled to the mountain fortress (the escape is covered in the game). The Map is huge, so you will need all of a very large table. Game is suprisingly playable with interesting components. Rules are well done and easy to digest. The Romans are under tremendous pressure to take the city in time, which requires the Roman player to be organized and relentless, exactly as they were in the actual campaign. Very intense game, with some interesting decisions to be made as to how to crack the Jerusalem nut. Has wonderful epic Cecil B Demille feel. Excellent city assault game with mining, ramp building and siege engines. Contains some of the most pitched fighting you will find in any cardboard battle. One of the most underrated wargames of all time. This works well solo.

Had the original and loved it, lent it to a friend and got ruined in a flood. Had to buy the second edition. (caveat: most of my plays were with the first edition).

Great map - though the first edition had its own charms, and find the Avalon Hill rules much denser than the original.

Still, a great game I would love to play again.
