Hallo,

I have the "newer" Version from Ariel.

Some comments indicate, that there are some differences compared to the original Version and that that oroginal Version might be a bit "lee unbalanced".

It is difficult to get Infos about that.

Anyone, who knows the differences?

It's been so long that I might not be remembering this right, but I think that the later version had a change that effectively prevented barbarians from moving from the Western Empire into the Eastern Empire along the African shore unless they had a movement factor of 4 (so just Huns). I don't remember if this was done by adding an extra desert hex or by changing the Terrain Chart.

Are both rules sets available anywhere? Or is this change only at a component level?

As far as I know, the components seem to be unchanged, but some Gamers wrote somewhere i this Forum, that the older Version was less unbalanced and some fleet-rules were changed.

As I know only the 1977 rules (Ariel Version) and not the 1972 rules (WRG Version) I do not know, what is true...

Anyone, who knows something?
