Few battles in history seem as "against the odds" as the tale of 300 Spartans against a Persian host that some say neared a million soldiers.
If the actual numbers of Persians are more like 200,000, and if there were something like 7000 Greek warriors originally manning the Hot Gates of Thermopylae, it still represents an epic moment of history that has captured the imagination for centuries. Against the Odds originally offered its first version of this battle back in ATO #6. Long out-of-print, we are excited to now offer what is more of an advanced upgrade than a simple reprint. Exciting new graphics and larger counters, plus thoroughly polished rules make this game a joy to discover. Go Tell the Spartans is often thought of as a solitaire gameand its excellent for thatbut many gamers found the 2-player version challenging to both sides. Now, you can try both styles, and see whether its Greeks or Persians who have a story to tell.
