Under the control of Agamemnon, thousands of Greeks massed at the gates of Troy, the proud city which defies the will of the gods and the power of the Achaens! Chariots, Troyan archers, Athenian hoplites, all alongside larger heroes, such as Ajax, Nestor, Achilles, Ulysses, Hector ... ready to clash for the glory of the gods and the eyes of Helen. A game of Iliad proceeds in several successive sieges. But note: your forces become exhausted quickly and reinforcements are rare. Launch too many warriors into the battle and you will be overcome in the subsequent sieges. Hold back your heroes and you are likely to undergo the curse of Thanatos which punishes cowards and weaklings.
