Seriously, which ones work?

A lot depends on your assumptions about how Bronze Age combat worked… grin

I have had a lot of fun playing King David, Holy Hack and Homeric Hack.

Homeric Hack is slightly more "heroic" than Holy Hack.

The WAB supplement on the Bronze Age was also fun.

A lot definitely depends on how you view Bronze Age warfare and especially the charity.

To the Strongest works well.
So does Field of Glory.
'To Ur is Human' is also good but more for earlier Sumerian warfare, although easily adapted to later chariot wars

I think as pointed out above completely depends on how much detail you are looking for and what you think "works" means.

I really like the way chariots are handled in Triumph, plus that period has a lot of "lower quality" troops to make those ancient fights interesting.

DBA Works very well for me.

I think DBA and Tactica both handle Bronze Age warfare well. Tactica would be preferable in my opinion overall.

To the best of my knowledge DBA does not even have Chariots as a unique troop type?

Unless something changed recently?

First off, I have never played any games involving chariots however when I was looking into rules for them I found "WAB" to be the set that I would have gone with.

I'm also curious to try Hail Caesar's Bronze Age specific rules. Not sure if anyone has tried those.
