More of the same, however my table is too small for Epic.

Played Epic on my rug and it takes C&C:Ancients to a new level. The battles are much more interesting and you get better sense of the true scale of the fighting.

A FANTASTIC expansion!! The simple changes and additions to the base rules, along with some *great* scenarios, make this a must have. Plus, the "Epic" rules and gameplay truly live up to the name.

RECEIVED TODAY. Having played many games of the base set and the 1st Expansion and having read the rules and the scenarios to this and #2. I have no reason to believe this exp. is not a 10 also.

The new Marian/Julian and Epic rules really kick things up a notch! If you are a devotee of the system, this is a great addition! Also: Nice mounted "Epic" map and bigger box allows you to store laminated pages easily.

Arrived promptly from Infinity Games in Bradford - great job guys! Now I have more CCA than I could ever have hoped for - just what will they do next?

We've finished Exp 2 and are now into this (Jun 10) - nice to be back with the tan blocks.

The last battle to go (Aug 10) and then on to the 4th expansion. Great fun!

Epic Ancients takes too long and makes a great game boring.

The 'normal' scenarios on the other hand are excellent and add new excitement to Ancients.

CCA plays are cumulative; the scenarios are decisive for to log Ancients or the expansions.

Great again, comfortable system, uses many of the same familiar mechanics but is great for a historical buff like myself to have more historical scenarios to play.

10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favorites.

Acquired Jan 08 - Mounted Board for Double Board massive battle action!
April 2008, ConVic 7 - first play of EPIC (6 players). Zama 2002. Our (Roman) right flank slaughtered Carthage who was too slow pushing through the middle. A great game (90 mins?) which was tons of fun. I look forward to more Epic games if/when they can be arranged.

Finally got this yesterday. Nice expansion but rated a little lower as the player aid cards are not printed on glossy cardboard. Still glad to have this though. Bumped my rating up to 9.5 as I do love this game!

The missing part of Expansion #2 (which was split into two in order to accomodate real mapboards and "Epic" Battles). It Includes a large number of interesting scenarios from the Roman Civil Wars along with a few other battles pitting Caeser versus the Germanic Tribes and the Eastern Kingdoms. It also includes Large double map "Epic" versions of such battles as Cannae and Zama. With this expansion added to the previous expansions in the series, any action from about 450 BC to 50 AD that took place in Europe, Africa, the Middle East or India can be recreated.

Played one of the Epic battles, with four players. One person per side acts as the overall general and distributes cards to the other field generals. They then play the cards as they see fit.

Worked really well, and gave the impression of a grand scale battle.

In addition to the basic C&C:A set, you also need expansion # 2 to play this expansion pack. You do not, however, need expansion #1. If you already own C&C:A and C&C:A exp #2, you might as well get this one. Many of the scenarios contain new terrain features, such as forts and cities, as well as unconventional set-ups. The new Julius legion rules endow medium and heavy units with even more destructive power.
