Hoplites Computer Game

Hoplites is a free computer card game based on the excellent GMT board game SPQR. I’ve played it and its a lot of fun. The card layout is reminiscent of the play in Columbia Games’ Gettysburg and Eagles games. There are also Samurai and Conan expansions. It’s an excellent diversion when you can’t get out your miniatures. Download the game here.

First Man In Rome Campaign Rules

Jim Naughton has written a set of campaign rules for DBA

about the last stage of the Roman Republic. In it, each player will represent a Praetor, the second rank of Roman senior magistrates, and the lowest rank empowered with Imperium, the power to command Roman armies and exercise governorship of a Roman province. Eventually some praetors will advance to the rank of consul, and occasionally dictator. Ultimately the goal is to amass sufficient prestige to stand unchallenged as First Man in Rome.
