Pericles Debuts At WBC

This year was the inaugural running of the Pericles (GMT Games 2017) tournament. Twenty-three competitors refought the two-turn tournament Archidamian War scenario in three rounds. Due to the two faction versus two faction nature of the design Players who won the game received 3 tournament points, low faction score for the winning side and top score for the losing side received 1 tournament point, with a one tournament point bonus if the high score was on the losing side of the war.

In the first and second rounds Brian Mountford scored 6 tournament points with Aurelia Albert, Jonathan Squibb, and Evan Harris scoring 4 tournament points to edge out a strong field to make the finals.

The final confrontation saw Jonathan Squibb (Aristocrats) and Aurelia Albert (Demagogues) of Athens take on Brian Mountford (Eurypontids) and Evan Harris (Agiads). In the first of two six year turns both sides declared war on each other with the main action focused in the West (Aetolia, Corcyra, and Sicily). While Athens won several battles the Spartans tenuously held onto Sicily. The score at the end of the first turn was Athens 34 to Sparta’s 17 (Demagogues 22/Aristocrats 12, Agiads 13/Eurypontids 4). Any score that is less than twenty points difference is very close in Pericles.

Due to the Spartan defeats in turn 1 a Peace party had arisen in Sparta that led to an early Peace with Jonathan Squibb (Athens Aristocrats) reaping the benefits from the cessation of hostilities to edge out Aurelia Albert by 4 points for the victory. I look forward to seeing my stalwart Greeks in the second running of this tournament in 2019.
