Welcome to the PledgeManager for Hellenica: Story of Greece!
If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

An explosion of creativity and violence erupted in the Aegean Basin in 800 B.C. that defined ancient Greece. This combination of science, mythology, development, and war was led by powerful city-states like Athens, Sparta, Corinth, Troy, Byzantium, Corcyra, and Thebes. These states vied for control over their rivals and dominated the lesser states around them. In time, some of them became so well known that they are remembered even today.  

Hellenica: Story of Greece is a 3.5X civilization game in which you harness the powers of one of seven beginning city-states to dominate the world around you. Your goal is to become the preeminent symbol of Greece for all posterity by completing a combination of secret and public goals. Will you be remembered as a warmonger or a peaceful philosopher? Great priest or apostate? Will you develop a devotion to the gods or focus on the advancement of your people? Can you guide your civilization during these turbulent times? Will your vision of Hellenic civilization be remembered for all time, or will you merely be a stepping stone for another…?

 Hellenica is going to be MASSIVE! We cannot wait to show you more!

 The Limited Edition Core Game of Hellenica will not be available outside of this campaign and direct from MR. B. Games and will feature solo play and support up to 7 players. Rather than make those expansions, we are including everything we have in the Core Game (think of it as the the Core Game AND the first two expansions already bundled together!)

The Limited Edition Core Game includes:

The idea for the Mythic expansion was to add even more minis to the game to represent the invading forces and make the game even grander. 

The Mythic Expansion includes:

Dice Tower - Mark and Randy discuss Hellenica!

Heavy Cardboard 4p and 1 Ai Playthrough

Gaming Trend - An in depth preview of their many plays!

A video set up and walkthrough by Scott DeMers:

PLEASE NOTE:  The Limited edition of this game will not go into traditional distribution - consider pledging today to ensure you don't miss it!

We are no longer able to ship to Brazil, Russia, Mexico, or the Middle East due to high postage prices, and lost parcels. If you live in one of these areas, we recommend you use a USA address and have the game forwarded to you via a relative/friend or postage forwarding company.

No project could be possible without a team of folks to help us. Hellenica is no exception. Below are just some of the folks who are making this project possible:

Designer - Scott DeMers - Scott has been involved with gaming for as long as he can remember going all the way back to his brothers tricking him into losing his Marshall in his first game of Stratego. Outside of board gaming, Scott has a lengthy background in the software industry where he has worked in visualization, data, artificial intelligence, NLP, and video gaming, having founded and started his own video game company. His experience with AI was one of his key reasons for including solo play in Hellenica out of the box. Scott would like to thank the many playtesters who helped fine tune this game starting with the original crew in Wisconsin all the way to the Prototopia gang in Denver.

Project Lead and Developer - Sean Brown - Sean has worked in the game industry for almost 12 years, many of them for Eagle Games and Mr. B. Games as a salesmen, co-designer, graphic artist, marketing director, developer, and warehouse manager (many at the same time) since 2006.
