1) Christmas
2) greeks
3) unaffiliated
4) navy note


1) Christmas

i hope you are enjoying the new layout and the new card. i'll bet it proves interesting in many games.

i also hope you had a great Christ-mass, and whatever else you celebrate this solstice.

funny thing reading the hits on the site.

apparently all of you were bored on Christmas day and decided to visit but were busy on Boxing day.


2) greeks

ok well i have had a bit of a SNAAAAAAAAG on the greeks, to say the least.

upon heavy study into the lifestyle of the average greeks i have come to conclusion that there IS not an average classical greek.

i have found there are basically two camps.

a) the pasty robed philosopher
b) this is sparta


this seems the best thing to do.

instead of fracturing the whole of the empire/civilization into tiny brackets that would demolish other empires and not be fair to the game as a whole, i have tempered/tweeked the entirety of the game itself.

i will be publishing 2 (two) groupings of leaders (up until this time known as generals).

a) generals
b) philosophers

this does not change ANYTHING within the game PLAY. the main difference will be when you receive or draw a "General" card it may say "Philosopher" instead.this will lead to a new revolution in deck building.

this will also lead to a nice little protection bracket from attacking cards that might say something to the effect of: "discard or beat up or decimate opponents general in play".

which is nice if you are playing the greeks.


i believe that i will publish the deck as follows:

4 generals
4 philosophers
10 soldiers
the rest should be the same.

this will lead the way in advancing the game in diversity for more fun gameplay.

i hope to iron out the wrinkles soon with my total build before i create the whole of the cards.

once i am done with card production, there will be an invitation sent out to view the private blog. send a request to empiresandgenerals@gmail.com


3) unaffiliated

i will be releasing the unaffiliated booster cards in their new and improved format soon publicly, for free, a little bit at a time, when i get nuts from trying to figure the greeks out i will work on card design this will improve gameplay and player happiness.


4) note

i am going to invent and create an expansion set called: "Classical Navy" and include a smattering of each empire and their watery ways. just seems fair that this game be not all "land lubber" and such.
