Thermopylae Online is a 2 player turn based strategy game played over the Internet. Each game
presents 2 players with command of the Persian and Greek forces that fought in the
historical Battle of Thermopylae. The game begins as each player signs up they are asked to
place a "bid". This bid represents the number of Persian units the player says they will be
able to destroy if they get to play the Greek side. The player with the highest bid then
does play the Greek side and the amount they bid becomes the number of Persian units that
player must destroy in order to achieve victory, else the other player will win. Games are
played one player's turn at a time over the internet and proceed at the pace players are
able to submit turns. A game may be played over a period of hours, but need not be completed
in a single game session and instead may be played over a longer period of time. Our server
keeps all game data for you.
