This game is a remake of the 1984 classic that was part of Milton Bradley'sGamemaster 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'sStruggle of Empires.
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.
This particular FAQ is an small collection of all the "official" Q&A I was able to assemble from several official sources. It is not very extensive, but should answer many if not all of the questions players might have when playing CotE Classic.
This particular FAQ is an extensive collection of all the "official" Q&A I was able to assemble from several official sources - including e-mail and forum responses from the game designer and/or Eagle Games. I would like to point out that some of the official answers to the questions in this FAQ contradicts what some gaming forums and/or groups have said or documented. This official FAQ also contradicts some frequently asked questions as well as at least one unofficial game summary sheet.
