In May we’re releasing Imperium: Classics and Imperium: Legends, two standalone deck-building civilisation games designed by Nigel Buckle and Dávid Turczi. Today on the blog we’re looking at the Arthurians, by which we mean legends around King Arthur, a British leader who supposedly led the defence of Britain against Saxon invaders in the late 5th Century CE. The Arthurian deck is rather different to the others in Imperium. We’ve taken a distinct approach to interpreting the legend, going back to the Welsh folklore rather than using the modern legends in films and books. We have incorporated these stories to craft our own version which you can explore playing the Arthurian deck, which is one of the most challenging in Imperium (we rate this deck 5 out of 5 in terms of difficulty).Continue Reading

As a fictional civilisation, we’ve incorporated a number of different ideas about Atlantis, as well as putting our own personal spin on them.Continue Reading

Today on the blog we’re looking at one of the more unusual and complex civilisations to play: the Olmecs, the earliest known major Mesoamerican civilisation (approximately 1500 BCE to 400 BCE). One thing to note is that we have used the Spanish names for the regions in the Olmec deck because no one knows what the Olmecs called them.Continue Reading

In Imperium, you are going to take the reins of a nascent civilisation and attempt to lead it to greatness, expanding its dominion, developing its technology, and propagating its culture.

In the 4th Century BCE, they briefly became the largest empire in the world under the reign of Alexander the Great, stretching from Greece to India.
