I was a KS backer of MN:E and today I received an email in relation to ordering new leaders and heroes expansion tiles for the game. I haven't seen these expansion tiles mentioned prior to this email. It asks you to enter your CC details etc. I am just a bit wary of these type of unsolicited emails.

Can anyone confirm if this is a genuine email or is it possibly a phishing email?

I paid using Paypal and I am not in the least doubtful that this is genuine.

I received an email from KS telling me about this...so I ordered it fully believing it is legit.

I received the last email from MN:E on 29-Nov. It was Update #40. I saw nothing about new heroes.

Hmmm.

But I'm very interested in all kind of expansions to MN:E.

I heard a notification jingle from my smart phone charging on the bedside table this morning. Half asleep, I bought the alternate heroes with a couple of taps and carried on dozing.

The email was personalised and when you use the link it goes to your own personal account. Further enquiry will need to be made to Academy Games I would suggest to allow you to purchase the expansions.

Read the last MN:E update, Uwe actually conformed it's legal.

Must say I'm disappointed by Brutus as replacement. I'd rather had seen Sulla, Octavian or even Scipio Africanus.

It's Brutus up to his old tricks, upsetting the status quo. It was another Brutus from his ancestry that got rid of the last king of Rome.

The expansions are real - Academy Games (Uwe) was selling them at BGGCON on a limited basis. They were also $20 then - so $14 seems more reasonable.

Scipio Africanus would have been great. It would've been neat to see a Roman leader farther away from the drama of Caesar's time. You could go back to the time of the Etruscan kings in one historical direction, or forward to, say, Trajan.

I'm not sure where we want to delineate the end of the ancient world, but since there's a Trajan's Market card in Atlas, I suppose at least that far.

It would be neat to see a two-player variant using Brutus and Caesar. Or where Rome's player changes leaders mid-way through the game.

To OP:
Guess you didn't see the previous thread, which discusses it.

There are so many Ancient leaders possible that I'm more interested in what his/her powers are in the game than who it actually is! But Brutus certainly seems a strange choice, as Marc Antony is the more popular and interesting choice for one of Caesar's "sucessor's," not to mention Octavius himself.

Now, can anyone tell me who the new alternate Atlantean leader Gadeirus is?

As for the end of the "Ancient" world, Richard Borg has come up with a new Commands & Colors game called C&C Medieval. Despite the title, it deals with the Byzantines, who he is saying used the new "medieval" military system--so it starts a new series from the older C&C Ancients game!

According to my quick research, in Plato's version of the myth he's Atlas' twin brother, and also known as Eumelus. He and Atlas ruled Atlantis.

Aha, a twin brother! Well, as long as he has a different power...
