When Roman ships attacked Syracuse, the mathematician Archimedes showed the soldiers of Syracuse how to focus the sun's rays with their shields on the wooden ships, causing them to burst into flame. The game Archimedes is inspired by this legend. Players destroy enemy ships by focusing imaginary rays on them, while trying to invade the enemy port. Destroyed ships, though, can be rebuilt later.

Cerulean 1 Nice concept, but it needs to have the first player advantage mitigated. Testing....
unic 1 Interesting concept, but too much of a first-player advantage.
Zotmeister 1 I still have a strong affinity for this game, but I'm pretty sure I'm seeing flaws in the design come through.
cdiffell 0 Not really a fan. One mistake, even early, pretty much dooms you I think.
