- Share an experience where the dice roll (or card draw, etc.) made you scream out in elation--and/or a story where you lost your cool because of a particularly unfair sequence of bewilderingly bad luck. (Xerxes is reported to have slapped his thighs in anger at his loss at Salamis).

- If you’re comfortable sharing, what life experiences have mirrored that same streak of good luck or bad luck.

Soloed the set piece version of Salamis:

Salamis. Sumo wrestling in a phone booth

My historical playthrough would normally mean that some battles from Tyrant would be up next, but I actually have already played (and added session reports) for the relevant Tyrant scenarios. So some games from the base War Galley game are up next.

Artemisium I from this is next in my chronological play through of my GBoH collection being covered by my blog. This scenario's a bit of a beast. Have all the extra counters from the expansion punched and clipped, and have shuffled things around to make more room for the maps since this battle uses two. Since the maps are out, it's technically on my table,. and I should have at least one side setup sometime this weekend depending on how interesting the NFL games end up being. I expect more than one to become pointless and free up time for me to go into the attic and finish setting this up.

EDIT: This one's setup now. Will start playing tomorrow. 15 squadrons x 15 turns = a whole lot of activations.

Seriously, Salamis was one of the greatest spectacles ever. And it was one of the few of the great decisive battles of history that could actually be seen in its entirety from one vantage point.

Themistocles

Themistokles, (about 524 - 459 BC), was an Athenian politician and general. During the first Persian invasion of Greece, he fought at the Battle of Marathon, and was probably one of the 10 Athenian generals in that battle.

In the years after Marathon, and in the run up to the second Persian invasion, he became the most prominent politician in Athens. He took steps to increase the naval power of Athens by persuading the Athenians to build a strong navy fleet of 200 triremes. These proved crucial in the next conflict with Persia. During the second Persian invasion, he was in effective command of the Greek allied navy at the naval battles of Artemisium and Salamis. Thanks to subterfuge and to signs of genius on the part of Themistocles, the Greek allied navy possessed all the advantages at Salamis and won a decisive naval victory.

Themistocles can reasonably be thought of as "the man most instrumental in achieving the salvation of Greece" from the Persian threat.

Salamis was a (magnificently) unlikely victory, and has the added bonus of being one of the most important victories in western history.

Themistocles (ca. 524–459 BC), Athenian politican, soldier and strategos.

The plan to fight the Persian invasion fleet in the straits of Salamis in 479 BC is his, and also the idea how to lure the Persians into that trap.

But even more remarkable is the fact, that Themistocles - other then most of the generals in this list - was no supreme commander. He was just one out of several strategoi quarreling with each other about the best strategy in a typical Greek manner.

Themistocles' first victory was to convince the Greeks (namely Eurybiades of Sparta) that the battle had to be fought here and now.

Okay, technically an admiral of the Athenian fleet, but:

Themistocles (524–459 BCE)

The Battle of Salamis by Barry Strauss

http://www.amazon.com/Battle-Salamis-Encounter-Western-Civil...

A rousing good read and a great tale of the naval battle that stopped the Persian army in it's tracks after the battle of Thermopylae. A great book to read if you want to know what happened after King Leonidas and the Spartans slowed the advance of the Persian army as seen in the movie 300.

480 BC, the Battle of Salamis.

Persia thwarted. This battle seems to epitomize the Greeks' determination to prevail, and to pressage the eventual failure of the Great King's design.

Salamis is an expansion module for the GMT game War Galley, highly recommended for its ability to simulate at the tactical level.

Just finishing up The Battle of Salamis by Barry Strauss. A really well-told tale of the fate of the Persians in Greece in 480 B.C. If you want to know what happened to the Persians after the Battle of Thermopylae (or the new movie 300 based on Frank Miller's graphic novel), you should read this book. It wasn't pretty.
