Description Edit | History

In 58 BC, Gaius Julius Caesar was appointed by the Roman Senate as proconsul for Cisalpine Gaul, for which he was given 4 legions. The ambitious Caesar, a military ingenue, had little idea of how lucky he was going to be -- as he often was in his actions -- because, within a short space of a few years, after coming to the rescue of the Gauls against incursions from Helvetic tribes to the east, Caesar himself decided to bring the rest of the barbarian tribes under the domain of Republican Rome...and, at the same time, increase his visibility among the Roman people.
From a military point of view it was an immense achievement, one that fueled Roman imperialist feelings like no other war. For the Gauls it meant subjugation. For the gamer, it means six battles of Pure Excitement.

Nominee for the 1998 Charles S. Roberts awards for Best Pre-World War II Boardgame (Charles S. Roberts Awards).

Volume VI in the GBoH (Great Battles of History) series.

13 Turn sequence flow chart
V2-5. Turn sequence in a flow chart. Helps players spend more time deciding what they want to do and less time figuring out what is allowed, especially with the leader activation rules. Very useful when switching between different GBoH games or returning to this game after playing other games. Does not include naval rules or expansions. When I reach those scenarios someday, I'll work on that. Thanks all for bearing with me as I continually update this. I'm hacking and slashing my way through scenarios for play test and continually finding improvements. Though the improvements are becoming more marginal with every update. I'm currently using this in a Vassal PBEM game and it is working very well. Changes from 2-4 to 2-5. Simplified the procedure for determining whether attackers...
