Alexander the Great


Alexander the Great is the second "historical" title of the One Page Games series: it’s a quick game where you play the role of Alexander on his march from Macedonia to India, where he will meet the Indian army at the Hydaspes river (326BC).

The game uses the engine of Hannibal ad Portas with several changes introduced to better represent the campaigns of Alexander:

  •     Companions special rules
  •     Persian and Indian armies
  •     Army Morale

New stratagems and events have been added to provide new challenges to the player.


  • The Game Rules
  • One Game Board
  • Two Enemy Sheets (Persian and Indian)
  • The 1PG deck (18 cards)
  • “The 1PG Deck” document

One Page Games (1PG) have been designed with the objective of being “light” games in terms of:

  • Time
  • Table space
  • Cost

I’ve found more and more difficult to find the time to study a full-featured game while often I’ve got a 30 minutes break in the daily routine: 1PG have been designed to fill this small interval. Rules are easy and short enough to provide a quick but interesting gaming session: from this perspective 1PG are great for a flight since they perfectly fit on the small space of a plane sit.

Each 1PG must follow two design rules:
•    All the components for the game must be managed on a single A4 sheet of paper (no counter, no dices).
•    The same deck of 18 cards is used by all the games to provide randomness without the need of using dice.

In addition, you will only need a pencil and a eraser.

Hi again - apologies for not looking carefully enough - I just found it in the Persian Army PDF. I guess I win the Idiot of the Day award :-) Thanks again for these clever little games - outstanding value for the minimal price.

Hi - I am enjoying this one, but have come across a slight problem. The initiative table seems to be missing from the map. Is it the same as the Hannibal ad Portas one ( I have that game also)? The differing event tables, tactical choices and stratagems show a remarkable amount of detail in a small game. Well done.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
