Trajan: Ancient Wars Series is a two-player or multi-player wargame that combines, expands and updates four strategic-level Roman era titles published previously in Strategy & Tactics.
TRAJAN: ANCIENT WARS SERIES
The Basic Expansion Kit includes the new standards rules & scneario booklets, four new Player Aid Cards, and 180 new counters in a zip-lock bag. This requires the player to have the original map/counter sets and the original player aid cards that were in the rules.
The Enhanced Expansion Kit includes all of the above plus four additional Player Aid Cards that are cardstock reprints of the original Player Aid Cards plus choice of one map/counter set (Roman Civil War).
The four games are: Trajan, Roman Civil War, Caesar in Gallia and Germania. Redone rules and tables, along with a new tactical "Battle Board" option, are included. Additionally, this expansion presents 140 new counters, along with 11 new scenarios played on all four maps as one huge monster game. Among the new scenarios are: "Year of the Four Emperors," "Marcus Aurelius," and "What If Caesar Hadn't Been Assassinated?" Each turn represents one to several months; each map hexagon is 46 miles across, and the main units of maneuver are legions and barbarian warbands. Game components include four maps, over 1,000 die cut counters, a rules book and player aid cards.
