Hi there, I just published a review of the trireme package offered by WI in January 2023, including a new set of rules. I could sum up my opinion using the slogan of an old spot: for many, but not for everyone…

Thanks. I was curious myself!

I love your blog. Do you think He Hemetera Talassa – Mare nostrum is still the best option out there?

I'd love to see your review of that.

Are they the same as Delos rules?

thanks guys! Deucey, very glad you enjoyed. Yes I do think HHT is the best options for fleet games – meaning games were you move and fight squadrons, not single ships. However I did apply some house rules to make it a little less fast and focused on V century, because the set encompass later eras with much larger ships than triereis. I will publish the house rules soon but am still testing a couple of points!

about Delos. It is a neat little free set I actually never played, because I tried HHT first and immediately starting working on it. If you are looking for fleet rules you should give it a try however because it seems interesting! and then let us know!
