SALAMINI ("Oh Salamis!") is a simple but not simplistic game of trireme battles during the Classical Greece period (500-336 BC).

Rules are just two pages long, but include all the features of ancient naval warfare (shooting, ramming, boarding), are fast and fun but also tactically challenging.

A small and quick naval encounter can be fought between two squadrons of 8-12 triremes, or a bigger battle can be arranged, for a standalone game or as a part of a campaign.

A link to a free STL file of a 1/1200 trireme is provided in the rules.

Can these rules handle the 300 odd ships on each side at Salamis?

If you have enough models, space and time to handle about 370 vs 1200 galleys, I'd say yes (the rules are really simple and fast) otherwise you can assume that 1 model on the table represents 10, 20 or 30 real galleys
