Played each scenario to a different Beethoven symphony: Classicism [Imperium Romanum] meets Romanticism [Furor Teutonicus]. Unforgettable.

We love it! Wonderfully done with great tension. A classic guerrilla warfare game.

I've mostly played Scenario III, Teutoburger Wald and Scenario IV, Idistaviso, which have pretty much everything I look for in a game. Interesting problems for both players, limited intelligence (Romans don't know the German OOB or dispositions), playable at one sitting. The Romans and Germans must play very different games, both of which are intriguing. I'm interested in this historical period, and that coupled with the great game play makes this ideal for me.

Still find the original GDW edition as more charm even with only the one scenario.BUt still a good ancients game.

Don't be scared away by the dull looks of this game. Once you get it right, its great!

Even though it looks like something from a previous millenium (not entirely incorrect!), the mechanism and the historical part makes it work in a great way. This is a game for the semi-amateur-historian. You can almost imagine the mighty roman legions marching across Gaul. splendid strategy card mechanism. I will hopefully play this a lot more in the future!

I've always enjoyed this game (when I can find someone to play it). I especially enjoyed the use of battle formation commands within the actual combat - it gives a sense of actual command (instead of just moving pieces and rolling the dice)

A hidden gem. Rules are presented in "Programmed Instruction" which make the first couple of scenarios rather dull. Once rules for hidden units and ambushes are introduced though, the game really shines. The opposing armies must be handled differently, as each has different strengths and weaknesses. The German tribes should almost never take on Roman Legions in the open, while the Romans need to avoid terrain such as woods to avod being ambushed. However, victory often requires taking these risks. Highly recommended if you can find a copy.

Solid game. Each side has their own strategy which must be mastered: the Romans play a game of decisive maneuver and massive force at point of attack; the Germans one of guerrilla war and delaying tactics. Scenario IV is probably the best, requiring upmost precision by both players.
