Hi everybody!

I have serious problems in understanding the supply rules
Especially the one concerning "corn supply" in the imperial capital.
I own the first edition (collector gem) and I wonder about rule 9.6 consumption! Cause land units are supplied by "land unit supply" via the 12 MP LOS! Right?!? And rule 9.6 says, I need 1 corn for up to 4 legions?!? Does it mean, these land units which are temporary in rome/imperial capital?
So, the corn supply only concerns the roman player?

Pleas help me! Otherwise I zombie

if it is not too late:
don't buy it!

at first i thought it would be great
with so many scenarios, but the rules are
akward.
at least some scenarios result in players
moving giant stacks about without ever attacking,
because both sides are about equally strong and
no-one wants to risk everything for one die-roll.
(that is historical maybe, those would-be-emperors
did risk it all: if they won, they became emperor!
but for a wargamer it is not satisfying to build up armies
for hours and then just roll one die in one decisive battle
and either win or lose)

That's more about the players then the game.

If you allow your opponent to build up forces in this way, then you have to expect Alesia's or Actium's to occur.

I have the game and am quite happy with it. (Though also looking for the 2nd ed )

I got rid of my 1st edition ages ago, when I replaced it with 2nd edition. In the new one, Corn is a special form of supply that only affects the player who owns the Imperial Capital. Certain provinces have corn symbols on the map, and you count the ones you control, then roll on the Corn Rebellion Table. If you control 0 corn, you'll get a rebellion on a roll of 1-5; if you control 1 corn, you'll get a rebellion on a roll of 1-4, if you control 2 corn, you'll get a rebellion on a roll of 1-3, etc. If you control 5 or more corn symbols, rebellions are impossible.
