Description

300: Earth and Water is a wargame for two players. One player controls the Greeks, gathered around the Athenians, and the other controls the Persians, fighting for the hegemony of the Eastern Mediterranean. Through five expeditions, each player aims to control more cities than their opponent.

In 500 BC, Ionia rebelled against Persia's rule and Greece supported it. With this "foreign interference" as an excuse, the Persian empire decided to invade Greece. In 492 BC, the Persian forces attacked Macedonia from land and sea. The Persians and the Greeks fought fiercely at Marathon, Thermopylae, and Salamis. Against the overwhelming forces of the Persian empire, the Greeks used superior tactics and "weapons" such as hoplites (heavy infantry) and triremes. The Greeks also had excellent leadership in times of crises and eventually prevailed over the Persians.

The game engine is a card-driven system. Players raise armies and buy cards during production. Cards can be used to enact an event or move an army or fleet. Events can provide advantages in battles or interfere with the enemy, but events alone will not lead to victory: Military action is necessary to win! Each game will change dramatically according to the order the events occur.
