Dragons breathe fire, Unicorns trample, and Warlocks conjure bolts of lightning. Giant Serpents slither and crush, Gargoyles shriek down from the sky with claws bared, and the mighty Colossus hefts a dripping battleaxe. Into the midst of this carnage step two powerful Titans for the climactic struggle. Only one can survive. Only one can be the winner of Titan.
What to say...
Titan is a classic that has stood the test of time and still attracts in many players who were not even born when the game was introduced back in the 80's.
This game has many positives like good strategy possibilities, replay value and easy learning curve. It does have its downsides like long game-play time, but hey even Texas Hold Em Tournaments are longer than most Titan games.
The biggest downfall to this game is finding it. You can go on eBay and see people paying almost $400 for some copies of the game! As for someone who just wants to play the game and not just put it on a shelf, this is hard to swallow. There is a Java clone of Titan on the web and plays faithfully to the game but it is not the same as interacting with friends.
Maybe one day I will get my hands on a copy of the game instead of always waiting for my only friend who has the copy to play it. That day will be one of great celebration.
Of course, if you have a copy of the game and would like to get rid of it you can look me up on MySpace. I am not too hard to find.
All in all though, this game is definitely on my top list of board games and will be for a long time to come. If you like Fantasy-Warfare games then pick it up.
My wife and I got married 10 years ago and Titan was one of our first purchases as a married couple. None of our friends play board games but My wife and I love them. After 10 years of marriage and purchasing 50 plus games ($2,000 or more) this is still our favorite.
THIS IS THE MOST CREATIVE, FUN AND EASY GAME TO PLAY.
I don not know why a large company has not bought the rights to this game and put it into the market once again. I'm glad I bought the game for $30 10 years ago, now its $250 because of the popularity.
The rules are incredibly elegant. A wide variety of choices to be made in both strategic & tactical situations. The core mechanics are very simple, all based upon a 6-sided die.
This is _the_ most balanced war game you will find. By placing it in a fantasy setting instead of an actual battle you can focus on your ability to strategically & tactially control your troops. No other game can match it.
An "old school" game that takes longer than those made today. But the time is justified by the challenge. The attention to detail is so complete that every single piece in the game is unique (take any two "ogres" and they will be unique)
