Sublist (or sub-sublist) of the "Timeline of War" MEGA-LIST

Click here to return to parent geeklist

Gaming the battles prior to 500 BCE in chronological order.

Date(s): prior to 500 BCE

Sublists of this list should be named "ToW: {date info} {sublist info} {more sublist info}" and should be publicly editable. The creator of any sublist will take responsibility to periodically review it for additions and re-order to keep things properly chronological and, when necessary, substitute lists for individual games.

This geeklist is a mere skeleton of what it can become with YOUR HELP. Please click on the link above to see what ToW is all about. And if you want to look at a much more fleshed-out "tree" of geeklists look at the ones I put together for 1914-1918 since that is a period I know a little about. (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/25945 )

PLEASE add games or new ToW geeklists to this list!
This is a community effort.

The Battle/Siege of Troy
Date: possibly 1200 BC

Really speculative. But that's what we're stuck with at this time period.

Have not played this, just seen it played. Covers the 8th/7th centuries in Mesopotamia, with Assyria playing against various opponents.
