A digital version of Commands & Colors: Ancients, developed by HexWar Games, should release
The scenarios focus on Romans, Carthaginians, and Syracusans, placing a lot of emphasis on terrain and how to work around the limitations of units like chariots. This digital port of Commands & Colors: Ancients follows HexWar’s digital version of ^( from last year.
^( is a long-lived wargame system by veteran wargame designer Richard Borg. It’s often held up as an excellent example of a balance between complexity and speed of play, primarily by limiting the range of player action and using quick, dice-based resolution. Borg’s system has been adapted to nearly every popular wargaming time period, from spears and chariots to tanks and guns to dragons.
The digital port of Commands & Colors: Ancients is ^( by the end of this month.
