Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

You take on the role of Alexander the Great in his world-conquering quest to extend the Macedonian empire and achieve personal glory.

When playing the game, you are placed in Alexander’s footsteps when he comes of age in 338bc, just before the battle of Chaeronea. From that point on, you get to decide where to travel, when to battle, when to negotiate, and when to seek out divine prophesies to guide your actions.

You are supplied with soldiers and advisers to help you navigate the dangers of the battlefield and the negotiating table. These include Infantry, Archers, Phalanxes, Cavalry, Advisers, Scholars, Courtesans, and Spies. You will craftily combine these resources with your own plans to achieve victory, and glorification. And if you do well, you will be remembered as one of the greatest leaders ever to walk the earth.

The life of Alexander is divided into several campaigns, each spanning several years. During each campaign, you are given goals, but how you achieve those goals is up to you. Do you enter into battle? Or negotiate? How strong are you? How strong are they? What can you gain? These are all decisions you get to make, and must make well, if you are to live up to the immortal standards set before you.

The campaigns can either be played stand alone, or linked to play through his entire life. When played as one on-going life, the outcome of one campaign affects your starting situation in the next campaign.

18 FC-Alexander Enemy Battleplan Cards
Attached you will find a series of cards to replace any or all randomly drawn counters for FC: Alexander. These cards are for those who, like me, tend to lose my counters on the map board. The cards are 2.5" x 3.5" and easily fit into card sleeves. There are no rules attached to this file on how to use the cards. Instead of random drawing of counters, I shuffle and deal out what I would normally use during the game. I also included (6) separate "Charge" and "Flank" cards for Alexander’s Battle Plans so that you can keep track of how many you have during a battle. I checked with Dan and he has given me permission to post on BGG. Print and cut out the cards on card stock or label paper. If using label paper, I would affix these onto an old set of playing cards. I would...
