Ancient India comes to the Great Battles of History with Chandragupta, the thirteenth volume in the award-winning game series. From Chandragupta Maurya's first victories over the Nanda clan to his expulsion of the Seleucids from the Indus river valley, the game traces the rise and expansion of India's mightiest empire.
Chandragupta features rules for both regular and Simple GBoH play. The battles quickly introduce the traditional "four-fold" division of the Indian military system, where the mighty elephant reigns supreme and ranks of battle chariots maintain an anachronistic prestige. And players will be challenged to grapple with the unique Indian military hierarchy - the loyal Maulas, the mercenary corps, as well as the unpredictable tribal and independent trade militias.
An array of armies awaits your command, including the Mauryans, Nandas, and Kalingas, Greek Phalanx and Hoplite armies, and a colorful assortment of tribes and militias. The eight battles offer a variety of gaming possibilities, ranging from set-piece battles to assaults upon mountain stronholds, camp raids, night actions with ambushes, and even urban street fighting. With full-color maps featuring an Indian military camp and the ancient city of Takshashila, Chandragupta promises to be an exciting new addition to the Great Battles of History series.
