Titan: The Arena is a very fun card game. It is based on a Reiner Knizia card game and Avalon Hill changed the horse-racing theme to a fantasy theme of creatures. Players bet on one of eight creatures that they think will survive at the end of the game. By the end, only three creatures will have survived the arena at which point, players will add up their wagers. The player with the most wagers win. The game is very elaborate form of the card game War. However, there is much more strategy involved in the fact that you can choose what power cards you can play for a creature. Players can then in turn play a card that will basically minimize that creature's power. So, the game can take a drastic turn just as it would in a real-life fight to the death.

Overall, the game is very fun and addicting. However, Avalon Hill no longer makes this game, so finding it may be difficult.

D0NK1J0T3 (#61424),

You used to be able to play the original Titan the arena at CCG Workshop
http://www.ccgworkshop.com/

but it seems to be gone now. possibly they were asked to remove it due to licensing issues since Colossal Arena is now out.
