Constantinople is a solitaire historical wargame covering the millennium-long history of the Byzantine empire, from the foundation of Constantinople in AD330 until its fall in AD1453. You will use military might as well as diplomacy and outright bribery to keep the many opposing forces at bay for as long as possible. Can you outlive the historic Byzantine empire, or will your efforts be relegated to an obscure footnote in the history books?
Constantinople is not a highly detailed, historically accurate simulation of the history of the Byzantine Empire, but is historically based and gives a sense of the real situation of the Byzantine Empire throughout its existence, and provides some insights into the history surrounding Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire.
App is optimized for iPhone but playable on iPad (just bigger).

Great port of a print n play board game
This game is fantastic! I wish more solitaire board games would be converted like this one! I'm looking at you Friday! As for people complaining of bugs, i suspect they misunderstand what's supposed to happen in the game. I have encountered ZERO bugs. The bug mentioned above is probably just the user thinking the furthest back enemy should be eliminated, but it actually means an enemy in the last square on the board. Also, if two enemies are tied in the last position that cancels them out too. Anyway, I love this game!
Give me a map please!
I have played a number of the states of siege boardgames. This is a fun one. I like the ‘walls’ aspect, giving you a final chance to defend the City. But as others have said, the chart with the armies moving up and down is boring and disappointing! I really want the map from the boardgame, or any map...something more interesting than a boring chart.
Great solo game!
This is the first time I've ever played a solo war game. It is very easy to learn, yet engaging. Great if you only have a few minutes to spare.
Would love to see an update that allows my podcasts to continue to play when I use the app.
