Introduction, Variants, Short Campaign and Designer Responses (PDF)

Article by Keith Martens for the "Canadian Wargamers Journal" back in 1992. Includes a brief intro to the game, some variants and a short campaign scenario. In addition, it includes designer Fred Schachter's feedback on these changes. As an added bonus, Keith Martens provides "General Strategy", Ken Hole contributes a "Judaean Strategy" section, and Keith concludes with a "Roman Strategy" section. This is a must-read 17 page article for fans of the game. Editor's note: This article was originally posted on Grognard as 14 separate graphic files (missing pages 6 and 7) and I wanted to combine it into a single PDF. During the process, I took some time to review the article and thought so highly of it that I wanted to draw some attention to it again. Enjoy.
