Description Edit | History

Caesar's Gallic War is a two-player game that covers Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul from 58 to 51 BC. One person plays the side of the Romans, while the other plays the side of the Germans, with both players vying for control of the various Gallic tribes.

The game uses blocks and area movement. Players use cards to collect allies, move units and attack or play events. Certain leaders are represented in the game, including Julius Caesar, Vercingetorix and Ariovistus.

As the Germans you will start with fewer and weaker units, but you you'll have an easier time recruiting other tribes to your side. Eventually Vercingetorix will appear to help you. Will you confront the Romans directly? Or will you play defensively, and rely on raiding tactics and political maneuvering?

As the Romans you start with six legions, with four more on the way. Your units are stronger and faster. But you'll have a more difficult time recruiting tribes onto your side, and you'll not only have to worry about rebellions, but watch your supplies as well.

8 Sequani stickers
If you have a printer and label paper, you can make your own sticker for Sequani. There are two sizes. Check the size and thickness and you might be able to put one on the Sequani card itself. These are at 300 dpi, so they should work. I sent these to a guy and he said they worked great.

2 CGW help sheet.
Although I applaud Mr McDougall's fine work in providing an extended summary of play, it's too long for my tastes. So, here's mine. It's one and a half sides of A4, in a more concise format.
