The epic siege of Syracuse in 414 BC between Athens and Syracuse.

414 BC: Siege of Syracuse has an easy set-up for a quick start to the game. Marker placement is indicated on the game board. Command orders and cards are used to shorten the rules. Developed for solitaire play, this game requires you to make big decisions based on good strategy, keep your wits about you when orders don't go your way, and persevere to victory.

The game is centered on the use of campaign commands, to give orders to Athenian and Syracusan commanders to defeat each other. Either side can be defeated if their morale is too low. The game allows you to play either side against a lone opponent who has 3 difficulty levels.

Choose which side you want to play, Athenian or Syracusan, then shuffle the deck for your opponent. The shuffle used by the solitaire opponent differs from game to game, so no two games are identical.

Each commander (solitaire or player) can issue one order per game turn from his available commands. Your order is executed based on your strategy and the current situation you are facing. Your choice can cause multiple actions and reactions, the results of which lead to troop eliminations, morale drops and events.

As soon as the morale of one side reaches zero during a turn, the other side wins the game.
