Paul, thank you very much for taking the time to respond with this level of detail!
I might also recommend pulling down Thucydides, book 5, from the shelf!Well at least it will educate me on something about which I am quite ignorant, low bar maybe, but ...
I have other interests as well, but the complete-ist in me wants to get Hoplite "right." I did the P500 sign-up for the new COIN game Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar which looks amazing. Despite not being in this issue, hopefully I can report a playing in this forum sometime soon.If your only interest is GBoH then whether you think 3 of 64 pages (including covers), a scenario card and 15 counters is worth it is another matter, that is up to you. For me, the articles on games I don't own may reduce the direct utility, but I usually find the other articles of interest either for the history or design thought process. Often it's only confirmation that a game, though at first intriguing, is not really for me.
