the guys at gmt asked for someone to put this note up here, so:

Important Note for owners of Commands & Colors: Ancients:

There are some extra stickers on the stickers pages that are spares but are not marked as spares. What this means is that if you just start matching blocks and stickers without referring to the rulebook, you could inadvertently put spare stickers on blocks needed for a different unit. To make sure this doesn't happen to you, designer Richard Borg suggests the following:

Separate the blocks by color, Gray Romans, Brown Carthaginian, then sort blocks by size. Go to Page 3 in the rule book and start with the Roman Units. Pull out 24 small gray blocks. Find the Roman Light Infantry stickers on sheet 1 of 3 (there are two of these sheets). Peel and place stickers front and back on the 24 small gray blocks. When you run out of the 24 blocks, move onto Roman Light Bow Infantry. Pull out 8 small gray blocks. Find the Roman Light Bow Infantry stickers on Sheet 3 of 3. Peel and place stickers on the front and back on the 8 small gray blocks. When you run out of 8 blocks, move onto Roman Light Sling Infantry 4 blocks… keep going it will really will be worth the effort!

Enjoy! Richard Borg

Was posted yesterday too:

but it's important enough to call out in its own topic.

In the 2nd edition of the game you get five sheets - two identical sheets for the Roman armies (i.e. one sheet for either side of the block), two identical sheets for the Carths and a single sheet for the dice, flags and some carryover Romans and Carths.

While it's intuitive to search the fifth sheet for the remaining Romans and/or Carths, be aware that on the Carth sheets there are actually a small number of Roman stickers.
