Description Edit | History

This classic game of the Fantasy Monster Slug-a-thon is a standby from the Avalon Hill of yore. The game still has a very devoted following, which is a tribute to the depth of the various strategies and approaches. The game is divided into two realms, the masterboard and the battleboards. On the masterboard, legions of mythical creatures roam about trying to recruit bigger and badder monsters and kill opposing legions in the process. When a combat occurs, the action moves to the corresponding battleboard type corresponding to the area the fight is taking place in. After lots of dice are tossed, the army that remains standing is returned to the masterboard with the spoils of war: points.

The points are used to recruit Angels and Archangels and to augment the leader character of the player's army: The Titan. As the points increase, the Titans become ever more powerful; at game end, the titan is able to kill most other character with a single blow. But be careful: If the Titan dies, the player is out of the game.

The last Titan standing is the ruler of all, and winner of the game.

74 Titan: All the Rules on Two Pages
I took the excellent [b]Titan Rules Summary[/b] uploaded by Grimnir (and used with his permission) and reformatted it down to a handy 2-page document. This is a perfect tool for in-game reference and assisting new players. Print it double-sided and laminate it for posterity! Special thanks to Grimnir for the OK to adapt his work and upload this version.

5 Method to Organize Counters in New Titan Box
I love everything about the new Titan, except for how the pieces are layed out in the tray. I can't every find what I am looking for. So, inspired by the Method to Organize Counter in Original Titan Box, I cut out some foam to organize the pieces in a way that makes sense to me. Included are the measurements needed and a picture of my final product. I will probably eventually label the sections and see if I can provide a firm bottom so I can take them out of the box.

8 Titan 2-player walkthrough with commentary from both players
Similar to my last walkthrough, this time I added comments from my wife, so you can see what we both were thinking. The main file is the masterboard moves, and there are several files detailing the moves of all of the battles we fought. Neither of us are elite players, but it should show you some of the things that we think about as we play, and maybe some of our mistakes as well.
