Out of the wrapper for me is Hoplite, the 15th game in Richard Berg and Mark Herman‘s series The Great Battles of History, from GMT games. You’ll never guess what this one is about…


I have only had a chance to briefly checkout the contents, but it’s all been good. The rules seem to have been streamlined, have added activation by chit pull, and there are some hoplite specific rules that appeal to me. There was chat on Consimworld about dud counters, but mine are fine. The production standards are excellent.

I am looking forward to playing this, but I might first want to do some reading on the topic.
