Description Edit | History

From the Manufacturer:

"These fields no longer yield grain the way they used to," complains the farmer. "We should settle new lands before our food runs out. Why don't we start farming olives, like our neighbors?".

The cart-driver nods: "Ever since them city folks started worshipping San Giorgio I have to travel further and further to new building sites. I'm on my way now to the new inn they built. I'll change horses there and deliver this load," he gestures towards the pile of wood in the cart with his head "to the sea beyond. Gonna start some fisheries there. It is said we'll conquer those olive-farmers before long. But their land is even more polluted than ours."

The farmer nods his head in reply. As the cart starts moving again, he returns to the field to harvest the last bushels of grain, growing between the stumps of what used to be a lush forest -- three turns ago.

Antiquity is a strategy game for 2-4 players. It is set in an environment loosely modeled on Italy in the late Middle Ages. Players choose their own victory condition: they can focus on population growth, trade, conquest, or city building by choosing their patron saint.

Each strategy requires a completely different style of play. Or you can choose to adore Santa Maria, the most powerful saint of all -- but you'll be expected to build a civilization twice as impressive as any other player.

While your economy is constantly improving, with more and more advanced cities bringing new options each turn, the land around your cities is slowly being depleted, forcing you to travel further and further to gather your raw materials -- until finally, there is no more land left to farm. Let's hope one of you has won the game before that time!

6 Antiquity Resource Stickers by dedbob & Mr Shep, v1.0 (US/Imperial)
Resource and Explorer stickers for 0.5 inch circle labels on 15mm wooden discs --- These files are 300dpi PNG images, pre-formatted for printing on the 0.5" circle (154) label sheets sold by www.printplaygames.com This is the version of the sticker sheet with resources and some alternative stickers for the construction of wooden explorer tokens. You should only need to print this sheet once, and the other file three times to have the right amount of explorers and enough resources with extras left over. --- (Credit to MrShep for the original images used in this file. This file is a resizing/adjusting of his original file to work with the 0.5" circle label sheets commonly available in the US. Original file can be found here:...

9 Resource Stickers for 15mm Wooden Discs
These are stickers for those that are crazy enough to want wooden discs instead of chits for the resources. For my set, I used 50 wood tokens, and 40 of the others. If you print this sheet three times, you'll be good to go with a few spares left over. If you want to sticker both sides of your tokens, print 6 sheets. This sheet is formatted to print on the .5" circle label sheets from onlinelabels.com: http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL32.htm However, on home printers, you might not get a good enough registration, and since I preferred the look of leaving white edges vs. full bleed, you might want to leave it up to a pro. Print and Play Productions did a great job printing them for me, so I'd highly recommend using his services, using the .5" circle option:...

22 Smaller and Improved Player Mat & Player Aid
The player mat that comes with the game is frustratingly large and takes up a lot of real estate, which can be a problem on smaller tables. There are two files to download in this file entry. This file is the player aid which is a two-sided print out that gives the turn sequence on one side, and the cathedral and resource information on the other. Note that this player aid omits the building info. This is because I designed it to be played with my building labels, which mean all of the building info is on each building, so there's no need for cross referencing! The building labels are here: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/9379/antiquity-building-labels

15 Antiquity Resource Stickers by Mr Shep, v1.0
Antiquity stickers for 15mm wooden discs The October 19th upload is the "no bleed" version, for people who can't get their hands on the pre-cut sticker stationary mentioned in the previous updates. You could print this file onto a full-page sticker sheet, and then cut (or punch?) the stickers out by hand. Be warned -- this will take a lot of time / might test your sanity a bit!! ...Good luck!

21 Antiquity Player Screens (2nd Edition Style)
I made these using the design from the 2nd Edition Box in each player color. This is based on the work done by BGG user 'intheclear' for his player screens. Print these without scaling (I use 11x17 full sheet labels). Apply to chipboard, cut the angles lines on the bottom, then score the flaps (line up the vertical cut marks). These are single sided. I wasn't sure what to put on the inside, so I went with nothing.
