Alexander the Great has conquered a vast empire, but his power is now waning and the time is ripe to compete for his inheritance. Each player leads one of four competing factions that are ready to rule the vast empire. To do this, you must become the most powerful faction by reinforcing your troops, ensuring sufficient supplies and occupying the most important cities and oases. You have 3 “Home” dice. In each round, you roll 3 more “Travelling” dice and pair them with your Home dice. These pairings determine your options during your turn: play new cards with leaders, armies, and equipment on them, increase your strength, conquer new regions on the game board, or change the values --and colors of your dice in order to play more cards—all to build the strongest civilization by the end of the game!
