Description

Hegemon is an operational simulation for two players which recreates the efforts of Athens and Thebes to withstand the Makedonian pursuit of Hellenic hegemony in the crucial years of 339-338 BC. One player commands the forces of Athens, Thebes, and their allies (the Hellenes), while the other controls the Makedonian army and its allies (the Makedonians).

The uneasy and uncertain partnership between Athens and Thebes is based upon the tenuous agreement that Athens will be dominant at sea and Thebes will be dominant on land. Knowing that Makedon can offer only limited challenges to the Athenians at sea, Philip II of Makedon chooses to wage a land war, ostensibly to enforce a ruling of the Delphic Amphiktyony against the Lokrian city of Amphissa.
