Producer: MC Lothlorien, 16K £5.50
Another text strategy game from Lothlorien. It's the fifth century BC and Athens is beset by hostile armies and fleets from other powerful Greek states as well as the Persians. All you have to do is survive long enough to turn Athens into the most feared state in the Mediterranean by building warships, training troops and fighting battles by sea and by land. No mention of democracy here, and philosophy's strictly for the cissies. Not one of their best games, but reasonably playable.
