In May we’re releasing Imperium: Classics and Imperium: Legends, two standalone deck-building civilization games designed by Nigel Buckle and Dávid Turczi. Today on the blog we’re looking at the great maritime power of Carthage, an empire that dominated the Mediterranean for centuries before eventually falling to the might of Rome.Continue Reading
Today on the blog we’re looking at the empire of Egypt, which lasted for three millennia. It is impossible to capture the depth and diversity of this culture in a deck of 23 cards, instead we have tried to highlight a few aspects. The Egyptians are one of the 8 civilisations included in Imperium: Legends.Continue Reading

Today on the blog we’re looking at the ancient civilisation of Rome, one of the largest empires in the ancient world containing roughly 20% of the world’s population at the time. The Rome deck covers the Roman Republic (509 BCE – 27 BCE) and the Roman Empire (27 BCE – 476 CE)..Continue Reading
Today on the blog we’re looking at the Ancient Macedonians. 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. As we state in the rulebook, the Minoans, the Greeks and the Macedonians all represent different, and sometimes overlapping, subgroups of Ancient Greeks.Continue Reading
