Sorry if this was answered somewhere; my searching couldn’t find it

1. Where do you get Ancient Epic scenario battles (like Overlord)
for download?
2. Where can you order extra decks of C&C Ancients cards?

3. Can you play Epic w/the original game plus Expansion 2?
(PAPER+MTD MAPS; Xmas-color blocks+gray/browns,
downloaded rules, 1 deck cards, etc.)

1. You can find all the official and many player-designed scenarios at CCAncients.net.

2. GMT Games sells decks, boards and other game parts.

2. You couldn't play the current official Epic rules that came with Exp. #5. It featured a brand new 100 card deck specifically for Epic games, a dozen scenarios, and card holders.

Thanks for the speedy reply.

1. Didn’t know the Epic scenarios were under “EXP 5”
at the CCAncients.net website. See that some require blocks I do
not have; others have a huge imbalance in hand size.
Epic 08, Clusium, looks like a good start; requiring only
blocks from exp 2 and original.

2.GMT Games site did not have extra card decks for Ancients on
their website; but you can order them through chat at $10 +
shipping. (though the Epic rules say you can get by w/ a single
regular deck.)
This way, along w/the wooden dice ordered from Valley Games,
my Exp 2 becomes standalone.

3. I hoped the new Epic deck is similar to the new Overlord deck;
just a clarification of 2 standard decks, otherwise playing Epic
w/standard cards requires some rule references.

Thanks for the useful pointers!

Just found this BGG posting comparing Epic and regular cards:

The new Epic deck is a 'must have,' because the color graphics treatments makes the "what can I play?" decisions vastly easier than using a regular deck (or two regular decks, as was originally recommended).

A couple new cards are interesting too.

If you want to play "Epic Ancients," get the fifth expansion. There's really no better alternative.
