I am looking at getting one of these games and I'm just wondering which one is better.

Both of them. It's just about what's your favourite setting: historical or fantastic.

When I discovered this game, I loved historical, so I picked Celts vs. Romans. I had never thought to buy a fantasy set. The truth is that I ordered the Orcs vs. Elves set the following week!

I honestly don't think either of them are better, they're just different.

The mechanics are pretty much identical, so I'd just go for which one better suits your tastes.

Hell, they're small and cheap. Buy both! Then you can play Orcs vs Romans. And if that's not cool, I don't know what is.

I agree, neither is better than the other, apart from a genre preference(fantasy vs historical). However, I find it easier to introduce new players to the Orcs vs. Elves. This is mainly because the Celts require a bit of hard work to achieve victory against the Romans. This can be frustrating for new players. I definitely recommend getting both if you can!!

You should take both, they are quiet cheap, and having 4 armies doubles fun.
