Few battles in history seem as “against the odds” as the tale of “300 Spartans” against a Persian host that some say neared a million soldiers.

If the actual numbers of Persians are more like 200,000, and if there were something like 7000 Greek warriors originally manning “the Hot Gates” of Thermopylae, it still represents an epic moment of history that has captured the imagination for centuries.

Against the Odds originally offered its first version of this battle back in ATO #6. Long out-of-print, we are excited to now offer what is more of an “advanced upgrade” than a simple reprint. Exciting new graphics and larger counters, plus thoroughly polished rules make this game a joy to discover.

Go Tell the Spartans is often thought of as a solitaire game—and it’s excellent for that—but many gamers found the 2-player version challenging to both sides. Now, you can try both styles, and see whether it’s Greeks or Persians who have a story to tell.
