Really enjoy this series. I have the basic game and modules and decided to start here as I always have enjoyed the Romans fighting the Gauls the most. This is a good game system to get someone into wargaming. The rules are easy to learn yet still have some complexity to them (mainly memory work) but the game cards really help out with the main points. My first battle took all of 40 mins to play solo. The action was fast and furious! Bring on the Vikings and Mongols!

MORE excellence. Anyone who enjoys this series should have all the expansions. Whenever I think of Romans, I always think of Ancient Britons too. Now I can fight `em out.

UPDATE: I have received my stickers today by mail, then I can change my rate from 1 to the real rank of the game and this expansion: 5. _______________________________________ I have opened my box yesterday and with my big surprise I didn't find ANY sheets of unit label!!!! Without stickers the game is useless, I wrote to GMT customer service SO I'm waiting for a quick response. I hope to receive as soon as possible the missing 5 sheets of unit labels. Thanks Daniele Cerboneschi

More goodness for my favorite game. Nice rule tweaks and some of the most interesting scenarios to date. New mounted board is a bonus.

Excellent product - great improvement on expansion 1 with some very well thought out scenarios which are more than just "open field" battles

Just got my copy today and everything really looks great. The new board is very nice much heavier than the original. Can't wait to get the pieces stickered and set up a game.

Friends, Romans and countrymen lend me your ears…

Some of you have already discovered that Commands & Colors: Ancients is much more than a game. It is an expandable game system that allows players to fight historical Ancient battles.

Imperial Rome and The Barbarians is the second expansion to Commands & Colors: Ancients. In this second expansion you will find historical battles that focus on Rome and the early Gallic invasion, invasion of the Northmen, the Servile War (Spartacus), Caesar's conquest of Gaul, the Roman Civil Wars and much more.

Showcased in the second expansion, are over 20 scenarios that range from 390 BC (Allia River) to 9 AD (Teutoburger Wald), and all the blocks and labels you need to field the Roman and Barbarian forces to fight out these battles. By now, you know we can do this, because Commands & Colors: Ancients by design is a unique historical game system that allows players to effectively portray stylized Ancient battles that play to a conclusion in less than an hour.

Imperial Rome and The Barbarians will feature at least one new unit type as well as several "specialty" units and leaders (Briton Chariots, Legionaries using the pilum, and Caesar, for example). Each of these operates within the confines of the original system rules, with only slight modifications to reflect their historical abilities and importance. So, rules-wise, if you've played Commands & Colors: Ancients, you'll have no trouble at all learning the few special rules for these new types of units.

The battle dice resolve combat quickly and the Command cards provide an element of luck that creates a fog of war and presents players with both challenges and opportunities for victory. Yet the tactics you need to execute conform remarkably well to the advantages and limitations inherent to the various Ancient units, their weapons, terrain and the history.

Welcome again and Enjoy!

Richard Borg
