Commands & Colors Ancients No 4 Imperial RomeGMT Games started shipping this week the two latest expansions for Commands & Colors: Ancients, #4 Imperial Rome and #5 Epic Ancients I. Imperial Rome includes a new Roman army with 293 purple blocks, as well as additional blocks for the Eastern Kingdom and Barbarian armies from earlier expansions. Epic Ancients provides tools for grander-scale battles: a special deck of command cards, wooden card holders, a new rule book, and 12 scenarios. Okay, I love this game to pieces, but enough with Rome already! How about some biblical armies. Or Crusaders, Saladin, Mamluks, or Mongols.

At the same time as Commands & Colors, GMT also began shipping Hellenes, a block game about the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta.
