I used my Anniversary coupon (redeemed on 8/1) to pick this up late last night/early this morning. I was undecided about getting AAR. I told myself if the coupon still worked then I'd get it. The coupon life must've only had hours, maybe minutes left on it, but it still worked! Thanks Matrixgames Now I just need to find some time to play it...

Buy when it's on sale, will not do another Check Your Six



I'll buy at full price but am going to wait for a unit mod (hopefully provided by the Devs) to switch to better scaled

units with multiple smaller soldiers vs the existing single giants.

Sounds petty I know, but immersion to me is also an important factor along with good mechanics - so I can wait ....

I found this piece of info and I'm drooling now... I have decided: I'll buy the game and place it on download for overnight!

In the last 20+ years of buying wargames this game is in the top 5 for me. It is an excellent game! I take a break from it, play something else for awhile, then go back to it.

So I got the game downloaded & installed from Steam (only 1 GB of size) and opened the manual file. 247 pages!!! What have I gotten myself into...

Well, in my view much better a 247 page manual than no manual at all, as with Rome: Imperator. Wikis don't cut it for me... at 247 pages, The Rome: Aggressors manual is rather comprehensive, but you don't have to read it all.

Kuokkanen,
Be sure to go to the games's forum on the Slitherine site. The developer gives A++ support. He usually answers questions within 24 hours. A lot of good info there about gameplay etc.

+1

Something I love about this game is the way everything ties together. The balance between resources, structures, units, population, and loyalty is superb. Want to build a Fort...make sure you got enough wood not just the initial build but maintenance. Build a couple of units in a size 3 city ... the city may shrink to size 1. 'Everything' and I mean 'Everything' ties together.

I hope, considering the new Ancients games hitting the market, this doesn't get overlooked. An excellent game IMHO and deeper than it may appear. Historical based with 4X qualities plus a random map generator.
