The Hoplite Challenge is a verb conjugation game for Ancient Greek. It is inspired by the Hoplite Challenge Cup, a contest held each summer between the students and faculty of the Latin/Greek Institute's Basic Program in Greek. After only six weeks in the course, students are prepared to challenge the faculty to see who can most quickly and accurately produce Ancient Greek verb forms. The spirit and intensity of the Hoplite Challenge Cup could never be adequately recreated in app form, but it is hoped that you will find the app fun and challenging.
The app follows the units of the course's textbook, Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course. From the 114 verbs introduced in Hansen & Quinn there are over 15,800 possible verb forms, not including additional forms given in the appendix. The app presents users with one verb form and prompts them to change it to another in 30 seconds or less. Users should already have a good command of Ancient Greek verbs; the app is aimed at perfecting and reinforcing this knowledge.

Ratings and Reviews
This is great, thank you for making it! I‘m an experienced Greek reader, but lazy about active morphology knowledge. This gives me a good kick in the pants. In addition to the drill/game, verb conjugations can be consulted in a very clean, easy to read format. Not for beginners, but very useful for intermediate and above.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
