The Commands & Colors: Ancients game system allows players to effectively portray epic engagements of ancient history. The scale of the game is flexible and varies from battle to battle. For some scenarios, an infantry unit may represent a legion of soldiers, while in other scenarios a unit may represent just a few brave warriors. The battles, showcased in the scenario section, focus on the historical deployment of forces and important terrain features on the scale of the game system. The Command card system drives movement, creates ‘fog of war’, and presents players with many interesting challenges and opportunities, while the battle dice resolve combat quickly and efficiently. The battlefield tactics you will need to execute to gain victory conform remarkably well to the strengths and limitations of the various ancient unit types, their weapons, the terrain, and history.

Hi Guys,

I've added maps - forum link for all user submitted scenarios. That way it will be easier to ask questions about special rules or send any kind of feedback.

I hope both "scenario designer" and players will like this function.

Thank you very much, Russell, for this great suggestion.

2013-08-01 New TAG added PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alessandro Crespi   




Hi guys,

I've just added a new TAG named "Playable with" that contains one value only: Base Game.

This TAG will be useful to find all scenarios playable with base game only. The trick will be to use Roman/Carthaginian units instead of original ones.

I've used "earache" Excel file to find scenarios that fit this value (link to BGG file). Sadly this will cover Official Scenario only.
To assign this TAG to all other scenarios I really do need "unit list" for each of them... maybe inside an Excel file (similar to that one) or even adding lines to that file.
Is there anyone interested in helping me out with this issue?
Please let me know in the forum and/or over BGG.

Another Year is passing by and we can turn back to see the path we followed:
2008 - launched www.CCAncients.net website
2011 - launched www.CCNapoleonics.net website
2013 - launched www.CCSamuraiBattles.net website

Right now these websites are full with every available expansion (as to say units, scenarios, rules, faqs, online game modules).
We have 564 scenarios on CCA, 107 scenarios on CCN, 20 scenarios on CCS.
In the past months I've also tried to cut off some of the continuous "spam attempts" and sadly I have unwittingly created login problem to some of you... I've also managed to resolve them but I'll take this opportunity to apologize with you.
Sometimes my intervention is timely, sometimes not so timely. So again, I want to Thank You for your patience.

In order to keep these three webistes online and running I'm here to ask for an effort to all users with whom I shared so far this wonderful adventure that I hope will continue for a long time.
Those who wish, without any obligation, could use PAYPAL form (available on right pane) and make its personal contribution.

Take care and have some nice Christmas Holidays!
