Anthony Hicks replied to Ryszard Tokarczuk's discussion Hoplite Vassal module in the group Great Battles of History series (GMT)
"One of the men posting on the previous thread said that he would be developing the Hoplite vassal module. I don't know what stage the development is at. Most likely, it will follow fairly close upon the game's release. "

Greco-Persian War

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?
