Hi I have just bought this game. Before I print a lot of pages with clarifications and errata for the rules and scenarios I would like to know if these have already been incorporated into the latest versions of the base game and expansion 1 (as these are the ones I bought)?

Kevin will give you the most authorative response but, yes, each new print run has seen the rules reworked to clarify any points that have been unclear. The Living Rules on GMT's website are as current as you will get.

As an aside, I really wouldn't recommend printing anything - it really isn't necessary. What isn't answered in the printed rules (can't think of any examples...) will be answered by making a quick check online.

Hi Brian,
I tried to keep updated FAQs on CCAncients.net website.
You can find them grouped here
http://www.ccancients.net/Rules/FAQs/index.html

I don't know if they are full updated so if you find some more FAQs answered all over the net, please link them to me or send them by email so that I can update website FAQs section.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks.

It did see the CCancients site but it doesnt say if the clarifications and errata is relevant to all versions or only older versions, and that made me post here to be sure. It can be very confusing to have a new ruleset and outdated errata :)

What edition of the base game do you have?

Third edition rules were a big step forward. Fourth was mostly just cleaning up some typos. I don't recall if there is anything "newer" than 4th.

I have the 4th printing base game. The examples in the rules and the charts are excellent and I really haven't had a need for FAQs though they are still helpful to cement the rules.

I stumbled just for a moment on the graphic on page 11. The text for the Light Cavalry in example D references an attack on the Light Bow unit but the arrow in the graphic points to the Chariot unit. Still it was written well enough for me to spot the discrepancy with five different examples on the page.

Hold the line and may your cavalry never be caught napping!
