    Good extension of the great base game, but I've found most of the scenarios less interesting than in the original.

    Good product, though having recently got expansions 2 and 3, I feel they are better value than this one. Has some interesting scenarios though and nice setups - still well worth the money!

    Alexander the Great! How can any ancients fan NOT want this? And they are not let down either. More wooden blocks than you can shake a stick at, and new unit types add more to an already excellent system. I eagerly await the next two expansions.

    C&CA (and this extension) gives you the feel of the antique battles, without the hassle and complexity of previous designs. An introductory wargame that even veteran players can appreciate.

    Just when you think it can't get any better we get new armies, new units and a slew of new scenarios. Some additional battle specific rules make it all that more interesting.

    For those who have experienced Commands & Colors: Ancients, I salute you.

    Some of you have already discovered that Commands & Colors: Ancients is much more than a game. It is an expandable game system that allows players to fight a host of historical Ancient battles.

    The Greeks & Eastern Kingdoms is the first expansion to Commands & Colors: Ancients. The armies of Philip, Alexander and the Successors meet the hosts of Persians, Scythians and Indians to the east. In this expansion, you will find historical scenarios that focus on the hoplites of classical Greece fighting off the invading Persian army at Marathon and Plataea; epic battles from the Peloponnesian War, the rise of Macedon and Alexander's battles of Gaugamela, Issus and Granicus against the Persians; and battles involving Alexander's successors. With your Greeks you will be able to turn west and battle the Carthaginians in Sicily, or as King Pyrrhus at Heraclea and Ausculum, battle the Romans.

    In this first expansion, we showcase over 20 scenarios (the package includes over 300 new unit blocks and stickers you need to fight out these battles). Now, that is a lot of history, but we can do this because Commands & Colors: Ancients is, by design, a unique historical game system that will allow players to effectively portray stylized Ancient battles that play to a conclusion in less than an hour.

    The battle dice resolve combat quickly and the command cards provide an element of luck that creates a fog of war and presents players with both challenges and opportunities for victory. Yet the tactics you need to execute conform remarkably well to the advantages and limitations inherent to the various Ancient units, their weapons, terrain and the history.

    Again Welcome and Enjoy!

    Richard Borg
