Battle Line Card Game - Title Graphic


Overview

I was attracted to the Battle Line card game from GMT Games by the attractive box art and pictures of ancient warriors from the Greek-Persian-Macedonian era illustrated on the cards. However, I was very disappointed to discover that the game mechanics rely almost exclusively on the color and number of the cards and essentially ignore the history that I thought they represented.
