    SGBOH held me from selling off my GBOH-series (the little differences in the rules between each game is very confusing). One gamesystem to rule them all.....

    Years later, this remains my very favorite tactical ancients gaming system (neck-and-neck with the terrific C&C: Ancients). Should be called "Moderate GBoH" as there still is a lot going on here. Plays very well solo or ftf. Note that I play with a House Rule that if one side activates the same formation 3 times in a row, that formation takes a Hit at the start of its 3rd straight activation (fatigue) - this helps open up the board. SGBoH is one of the very best gaming systems I've run across for flavor and fun. Highly Recommended!

    Simple Great Battles of History (Simple GBoH) allows gamers to recreate the significant battles of the ancient Western world covered by GMT's Great Battles of History (GBoH) Series. Simple GBoH is designed for players who want a faster, less die roll heavy version of the GBoH system, while retaining as much of the historical flavor and insight of the original rules. These rules and its companion playbook cover all the battles published in Deluxe Great Battles of Alexander, SPQR, Caesar: The Civil Wars, Caesar: Conquest of Gaul, Cataphract, and all their related modules. The battles presented in C3i are published in the Simple GBoH Battle Manual.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: This rules book is self-contained; you do not need the original GBoH rulebooks to play this version...although the former does contain interesting Design and Historical notes. Most of the rules and mechanics which are part and parcel of all previous GBoH series land battles have either been changed or are not here anymore.
