You need the original game and you need to print some material that is also useful reference material.


The objective of this variant is to make the game run faster and remove many annoying things in the game. Most of these variants were ideas from board game geek users.

New in the second edition

Here is a small list of what's new in the second edition:

  • Simplification of the original variant to change really what matters
  • Actions are now all effective to the player who play it.
  • Player score for victory cubes at the end of each turn.
  • New print outs in full color.
  • Norse gained a 12th unit.
  • 3 new buildings
  • additional tiles for 5-6 players.


There is a transcription error on the Unit sheet of Egyptian. Elephants have a +3 vs mortal, while the unit card has 2+ vs mortal. The original unit's ability should stay intact. So they have 2+ vs mortals.
