Hello, im looking for a wargame, but because my friend speaks very poor or basic english, i wd like a game where is not too much text, rules can b in english thats no problem, but while playing I wd need little or none knowledge or smtng he can learn fast, rules can b simple, difficůt...doesnt matter, Would prefer acient times, but can b aswell napoleonic, indian wars or wwI and wwII, simply rather wwII if itll b smoother gameplay than lot of text in ancient. It can b simply various historical wars, im not strictly focused, main is as I said the thing that my friend cd learn fast or enjoy smtng without text or with simple text which i cd translate for him on sheet, I cd help my english is solid and rules can b even difficult for me, important is gameplay, his level of english really limited but I hope ull guys help me to sort this out

Cheers and thanx in advance for suggestions

Julius Caesar

There are several cards (5, perhaps) that are "God Cards," where the text is important. You could easily translate these on a sheet of paper to Czech (or whatever you need). The rest of the cards are not text dependent, just numbers.

And the game's both ancients (Roman Civil War) and a lot of fun!

Would also recommend Julius Caesar, not very complex rules and the card text is really confined to the God cards mentioned above. Fun game, easily playable in an afternoon.

Since you mentioned Napoleonic era, would also recommend another Columbia block game, Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign, 1815 4th edition published 2013.

Even simpler, also a block game, and you can write the text in your own language:



This is a great entry level game.

One ancient game that doesn't involve cards is Ancient Battles Deluxe. This is a tactical game (individual battles) rather than a campaign.

1) get one with a theme you are both interested in.
2) cheaper games tend to be simpler in Rules.
3) older games,1960 to 1974 tend to have simpler Rules.
4) smaller games tend to have simpler rules.
5) BGG's game descriptions [and images] may include the # of pages in the rules, and give an idea of complexity.
