Description Edit | History

This game is a remake of the 1984 classic that was part of Milton Bradley's Gamemaster Series. In this game you are one of many Roman generals vying for power in Imperial Rome, employing legions, cavalry, and catapults to reach your objectives.

This version of the game has two sets of rules, one set similar to the original version (except that it has fixed the broken catapult rules) and a new set of rules based on Martin Wallace's Struggle of Empires.

5 Conquest of the Empire Classic - Quick Memory Aid
Version 2.00 with text tweaks and corrections. This Quick Memory Aid is intended to help all those like me, who might have big difficulties to properly understand the (awful) COTE Classic rules. I have been taking many days to bring together all important rules details, gathered from various threads in the forum. Enjoy!...

3 Conquest of the Empire I Player aid
I have taken the information on the back of the rulebook and reformatted it into a smaller footprint and a printer friendly background. The game is simple but if you are playing with new players it is a handy little reference for them. I use it when I teach the game.
