Having lost the rights over the farming district of Thyreatis to the south of the Argive plain to Sparta in 550BC, Argos again challenged for control of the region two generations later. But the Spartan king Cleomenes decided to make a preemptive strike and landed his troops across the gulf of Argosstill, outnumbered by the martial Argonauts, he bade his time and attacked usin a ruse. Under a temporary truce, during which his men would take their meals at set times sounded by horns, Cleomenes observed that the Argonauts started following the same routine. One day, instead of taking their meal, the Spartans waited for the Argonauts to take theirs and attacked them a that moment.

Game notes: The terrain is an open plain.

Historical result: Sparta's cunning won the day
