POLIS (Reprint version)
5th Century BC: When Athens and the Delian League clashed with Sparta and the Peloponnesian League. In this civilization-shattering conflict, military prowess was only as important as managing a strong alliance and feeding the population… all while keeping the cultural and political engines running!
In this game, you control the gate of either Athens or Sparta, expanding the power of your League, attracting other Poleis (greek: πόλεις – cities) to your side (either by diplomacy or force) and keeping an eye on trade and cultural progress as you seek to gain any advantage in this unique battle for hegemony!

Polis is a two-player civ-lite game set in the beginning of the conflict between the two major polis (greek: πόλεις – cities) of the 5th century B.C: Athens and the Delian League against Sparta and the Peloponnesian League. The winner will be the Empire with more population and prestige at the end of the game.
Both players must secure their supplies and the routes to five markets to trade with them. Every turn you get goods from a territory where you have population supporting your Empire, but you should feed them.
You can fight to control the territories and siege other polis or you might use your diplomacy to convince a polis to join your league. But polis are proud of their independence so you will have to create some projects to gain prestige needed for your military manoeuvres.
This new edition of Polis has updated revised rules and new art that will enhance your game experience.
