Hello againg, is there something about the Diadochi wars planned in the first expansion? I knew most of seleucid empie is out of the map, but its a very important event in history. They might not flesh that out this time, but the age of antiquity is ripe for this engine. I'm actually kind of surpri...

Oh, and of course Gibbon's ' The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire ', a must read for all students or fans of ancient history. It can be a dry read at times, but there's no forgetting its importance in world literature. The man basically spent his entire life filling in the missing pieces of a ti...

AGEOD games teach gamers a bit about history, but most importantly, they teach you PATIENCE. So many games these days, even strategy games, are click fests. You know, the standard 'look, choose, click, move on' type of responses. Whereas doing that type of thing in an AGEOD game will get you smashed...

Was browsing some sites a couple years ago looking for a new Civil War game and found a few sites talking about AACW. I think it might have been James over at outofeight. Anyway, all the sites gave it good reviews so I picked it up and never regretted it. After that it was a steady decline into the ...

Ok, my AGEOD wet dream game... here goes... 1 - Crusader Kings style dynasty simulator acting out a larger scope campaign with... 2 - An AGE-style strategic, hand drawn map moving armies and leaders around and fighting in... 3 - A Total War-style 3D battle engine. Could maybe even be an older engine...

Pennies, pennies, counting many pennies until September 21st. Those pennies saved will be patience earned, trust me. I just sit there, staring at that beautiful eagle at the menu, loading and reloading scenarios, waiting for that day. A few more weeks and we'll all be crossing Rubicons and bathing ...

Just wanted to chime in here. Gotta at least talk about the game for a while until we can actually play it. The map looks great. Provinces are done up nicely. Love the hand drawn portraits (as usual, an AGE standard), and so far the only thing that seems to missing from a detail point of view would ...

First post here. Long time AGE fan (and pre-ordered AJE this weekend). I don't know how many of you have tuned into Mike Duncan's 'History of Rome' series, but it's an excellent podcast that can get anyone caught up really fast on the Roman period. His podcast series covers Rome from the founding of...
