"Peace is not a condition between independent states. Peace is a service that can be bought... for tribute to the Assyrian King".Assyrian Wars brings us back to the time of the ancient Mesopotamia. Assyrian Wars covers the ruler period of the last four great Assyrian Kings and the decline and Fall period till the destruction of the Assyrian Empire and the defeat of their Egyptian Allies, from 722 to 605 BC. 722 BC: Sargon II becomes King in Nineveh as new "King of the World". A couple of problems threaten the strongest and most effective Army the world has seen so far. In the West an Assysrian Army is inflicting a hunger siege on Samaria in Israel. Will the Egyptian Pharao interfere? In the North the rampaging Urartu Kingdom is threatening the Assyrian borders. In the South Mardukkapallidin has become King of Babylonia. Elam in the Southeast joined him. In the East the innumerable Mede tribes become a growing threat. The first signs of a large migration from the North consisting of Cimmerian and Scythian tribes become visible. And all those minor state tribute refusers who need to be punished! Will you as the Assyrian King maintain your Empire? Or will you as Babylonia, Mede, Elam or Egypt free the world from Assyrian Tyranny? Assyrian Wars combines the advantages of point to point games with the Blitzkrieg General system reckoning ancient warfare. Assyrian Wars gives an easy entry for beginners; still the game provides complex games situations depending on players strategy.
