In the 5th century B.C., through the Persian wars, the Delian league was founded under the leadership of Athens?this alliance was actually the Athenian empire. Athens became the wealthiest and strongest city-state in the world, but she also faced difficult challenges from inside and outside of her. In Athens, players acting in the role of leaders in the heyday of Athens would contribute to its sustainable prosperity.
Athens is played over a maximum of 14 rounds. There are four phases to complete each round: People Management Phase, Base Phase, Action Phase, and Event Phase. You will expand your base, manage the people and then perform an event in every round: preparing for war by raising armies, holding a festival with trading goods, and so on. You need not only to make an effective plan but also accept a bit of uncertainty. By the grace of goddess Athena, your leadership will make Athens greater!
