Product Description

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.

Really fun game... if you have the time
April 09, 2010

I've never had a bad time playing this game. Loads of fun every time we pick it up, really. The problem is the length, and it's any easy thing to gloss over in these reviews, but potential buyers need to understand: this game takes an eternity to finish.

The last time we played it, we had five people, two of them took each other out really early on, and when there were only two people left, we decided to leave it at that rather than slug our way through the rest of the game. Our decision to do that wasn't because we weren't enjoying the game, it was because we had started playing at 7pm and it was 2:30 in the morning. This was a short game.

The makeup of the game is such that most, if not all, of your armies grow every turn, and as you get more and more armies that way, the game becomes extended further and further. Again, I want to stress that it's quality time, but I have difficulty enough getting people down for a 2-3 hour session of Arkham Horror. Getting a handful of people interested in a game that's going to last until the heat death of the universe is tricky, to say the least.

My point is that this is an awesome, but full priced boardgame that you will (assuming you're playing with people who have... you know....jobs and stuff) play about half as often as your other games, at best. Definitely something you should assess before buying.

Note: this review refers to a different release of this product.
 
 
 
 
 
Excellent game, just so hard to find...
April 10, 2007

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.

Happy Gaming!

Favorite game last 10 years
November 19, 2006

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.
