About Thermopylae Online

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.
