Product Description

A study in contrast of the ancient world's most vaunted military unit, Caesar's Legions is a two-player, strategic game dealing with Rome on the Rhine frontier for a period of roughly 100 years during the height of the legion's power. Play is based on scenarios ranging from Julius Caesar's defeat of the Suevii chieftain Ariovistus in 58 BC to the Batavian Rvold of 69 AD.

Play calls for widely diverging tactics brought about by the great differences between the capabilities of the Legion and their barbarian adversaries. As such, it is a good simulation reflecting the difficulty the Germans had defeating a prepared Legion in the open. yet, the German's cause is far from futile or a perpetual delaying match as the initiative can shift from side to side due to the German's greater numbers. Innovations include the Partial Elimination, Multiple Combat system utilized in the 1776 game, siege equipment and tactics, hidden movement, ambushes, and tribal mobilization.

Playing time varies between 1 and 4 hours depending on the scenario chosen.
