On Sunday 2nd December 2018 I’m bringing a game I’m working on for youngsters loosely about the ancient greeks of the Pelonpennesian War period.  I had some ideas for representing hoplite combat using toy soldiers (though actually the toys don’t matter that much – but y’know, visual appeal and all that).

The basic idea is to look at the hoplite fighting process in a bit of detail but simplified, though I must admit I’ve not come down with much clarity on light troops and cavalry as yet – the latter especially seeming to be more of a harrassing arm that something significant on the field of battle.  Anyway, I’m looking forward to an interesting discussion, hopefully.
