Sooner or later all your leaders from both sides will exhaust their options. Don't worry too much about how many turns there are someone's going to hit the army panic button rather soon.

Back from Monstercon in Tempe, Az. I and two friends played "Chariots of Fire" scenarios, Kadesh and Megiddo. We all enjoyed the game and will play more of the scenarios.

Played the Egyptians in Kadesh and lost big time. We went with the ambush variant. Based on this, Ramses II was a a blowhard.

Megiddo was a close one. Played the coalition against Egypt and lost but barely. Recommend this game as a great addition to GBOH.

A good battle was left out. The Hittites taking and sacking of Babylon. The Hittites on a deep penetration raid suckered the Babylonians to fight outside their city and upon crushing this army broke into the city on the heels of the routed Babylonians, taking and sacking Babylon. They had the help of the Kassites who lived in the mountains just east of Babylon and to the north. These Kassites would then take over Babylon as their capital and kingdom upon the withdrawal of the Hittites. Hammurabi was the possible king of Babylon at this time. His fate is unknown.

Tom sorry for the delay in responding... some bad weeks for me. It is hard to tell I have only played GMT's version solo a couple of times, while The AH version as a stable game in my younger years. I really think GMT's - but I have not real experience to back it up.

If there is anyone into Face-to-Face gaming and is close to the Trenton area of New Jersey drop me a note and I will be happy to pull out any of the games I have.

Tried to introduce a friend to GBOH with Deluxe SPQR. We tried Bagradas Plains as a trial run then 1st Battle of Herdonia. He played Hannibal and I Rome(easier for me). He did not care that much for GBOH but might try again.

Do you really think Massada will be interesting to play?

Evening all,

Among the games I enjoy are Siege of Jerusalem & Caesar Battle of Alesia both from AH and Alesia GBoH Series by GMT. I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in Jewish Revolt in 70 AD and the Sieges at both Jerusalem and Masada?

Hi there,
My name is David Lubin, I have been a game Grognard for most of my life. I am looking for opponents I would prefer Face-to-Face gaming, but will consider PBEM. I am mostly into WWII games though I do enjoy and have several ACW and Ancients (in fact one of my favorite games is Siege of Jerusalem Avalon Hill). I also enjoy Monster Games. I have a good collection from GDW’s “Drang Nach Osten!” and “Unentschieden!” Through the Gamer’s “Bloody Omaha” to the most recent Decision Game’s remake of SPI’s (I actually have both versions) “War in the Pacific!” Though I really enjoy all types and sizes of War Games!

I also enjoy board games like “Space Hulk”, “Descent: Journeys in the Dark”, “Tide of Iron”, “Memoir ‘44”, and many others. I also enjoy a limited number of RPGs, CCGs, and Miniature games. I am handicapped and traveling is difficult for me but I can host and I can leave a game up on the table rather indefinitely! So if you are close enough to drive here drop me a note and let’s play a game, my collection is over 300 games.

What is the diferrence between "Simple Great Battles of History"
(Faster-playing set of rules and scenario updates for GBoH) and Simple GBoH Battle Manual (c3i) ?. Do I need both?
