Perikles Board Game


Drake says: "In Perikles, players assume the role of a noble family seeking to become the leader of one or more of 6 ancient Greek city-states. The game plays out in 2 phases: In the first, players vie for area control in each of the six states, which end in elections. Players who win the election in each state can then "control" that state's army. In the second phase, players use cards to move their armies to attack or defend one of seven battles (each tied to a state, and you can't attack your own!) that are up for grabs that round."


John says: "Perikles is a historical, well-balanced multiplayer war game. The gameplay is fairly is straightforward, with an excellent 2-phase system of the area control/voting and military phases. It may run a little long for some, but it is highly tactical."


Martin Wallace


Athens, the birthplace of democracy, could look back on her leadership against the might of Persia with pride. As always, though, pride comes before the fall. Sparta and the other city-states of ancient Greece decided that Athens needed to be brought back down to earth, resulting in the Peloponnesian War.

In Perikles each player represents a Greek family with political influence spread across the six main cities of Greece. Players will use their influence to gain control of these cities, which in turn allows them to use their military forces to win glory on the battlefield. Over each turn, players will use their political savvy to ensure that members of their family are in leadership positions in as many cities as possible. Once leadership is established, armies march and battle over famous battlefields, while historical figures influence events. Finally, leaders die and the best of them have statues erected in their honor... and the game (and the war) goes on.
