Name: Archimedes
BGG Num: 18698
Description: 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.
