Does anybody know of any games that deal with the Greco-Persian War from a strategic standpoint. The upcoming Hoplite of GMT's GBOH system will deal with some of the battles. I know there are other games that deal with tactical battles from that war but are there any games dealing with the overall war?
I've just bought and played 'Richard the Third' by Columbia Games and not only found it to be one of the best looking games that I've seen, but it also gives a great flavour of the changes of alliegences that occured during the 'Roses' period. Although a block game it is parsecs ahead of the early block games by Columbia, easily on a par with GMT. Definately worth a look. I also have 'Pax Baltica' on the Thirty Years War which has similar mechanics.

I bought a book on the Wars of the Roses, which I hope will compliment and expand the GMT game Blood & Roses.

Out of all of the old SPI/AH games from the 60's, 70's & 80's, what would be your must-haves (or the never sell catagory) in your collection.
These must be games that you would, on occasion still put on the table and play, and still enjoy playing even though they are decades old?
And the next question is, why? What makes them that good you still want to keep and play them?
