Betting, special powers, and great tactics make this yet another Knizia classic... a little chrome takes the basic mechanism of Grand National Derby and makes an unbelievable game... a little too much chrome though and we end up with Galaxy the Dark Ages (yuk!)

My favourite game. Colossal Arena are even better. Titan still looks much better.

This game always provides a quick but highly entertaining competition in our group. No one ever objects when this game is suggested.

Tons of great atmosphere, beautiful card graphics, and fun with 2 to 5 players. Reiner Kinzia's best game to date.

One of my favourite games. We play it very often. I own both versions, Titan: the Arena and Colossal Arena. If you have to choose buy the second one because they are new creatures and the card design is nicer. We play Colossal Arena with the old rules of Titan: the Arena: until there are three creatures left.

My most played game, and one of three that I rate as a ten. Lots of tough choices - whether to attack or defend, save your best cards for later or use them now. I always build up a great hand for the last round, and then it ends before I can play them.

I like some of the new powers in Colossal Arena, but prefer the older version for the look and for the card quality (plus you don't have to sort the cards before you start playing).

Still one of my favorite games. Fast easy and always different. Secret bet on the Troll for the win!

Buffed my rating up to help the overall rating. This game needs more love. If you play with a group that knows how to play it well it is a great bluffing/interactive game. The end mechanics of the game are a little clunky but otherwise I don't see why this is rated so low.

This game was an impulse buy after a demo. I absolutely LOVED it and it is a mainstay for family get togethers. it can get kinda...cut throat.. at times but it is a game that is easy to learn but takes forever to truely master.

Components: The card quality has been improved in the latest Fantasy Flight small-box edition. The creature art is wonderful (I prefer the cards in Colossal Arena to Titan: The Arena). I might like a cheat sheet explaining the various powers, rather than cluttering up every card with text.

Experience: Very interesting game, budgeting cards, using them to keep my creatures alive, activate special powers, tank other creatures, and to end a round. I enjoy how the equation gets simpler and simpler as creatures are eliminated. The variety of special powers can be overwhelming, but this gets easier as the creatures become more familiar through repeated play. I prefer this as a two- or three-player game, which feels more strategic, whereas with more players too much can happen in between turns.

One of the best card games I have ever played. Every turn is tense (especially late in the game, when so few plays will end a round and kill a creature). The use of creature powers, spectators and secret bets add even more tension. This game and Settlers of Catan got me into German games; I don't play Settlers much anymore, but I will NEVER turn down a game of Titan: The Arena.

I have the even older version in the blue box. I still think its a great game, though we usually play it unconventionally - with 3 players and no hidden backing.

This game rocks as a three player game (and so few games do). Two player is pretty pointless and four or more makes it very hard to exert any control - but three player is fantastic.
