Corintho is a great supplement to a study of ancient Greece. It is a game where each player tries to stack pillar pieces to create three identical parts of the pillar in a row. This game is made from very sturdy stone-like pieces and the base is quite heavy. The pillars are broken into three pieces that are distributed to each player in the game. When a player takes a turn they can either place a piece on the board or move a piece already placed on the board.
While we do plan on studying ancient Greece in the future, we just play this game for the fun of it. And fun is a very good reason to get out Corintho.
