Trajan: Ancient Wars Series, by award winning designer Joseph Miranda, is a two-player or multi-player wargame that combines, expands and updates four strategic-level Roman era titles published previously in Strategy & Tactics (issues 145, 157, 165 & 175).

The Expansion Kit includes the new standard rules & scenario booklets, eight new Player Aid Cards, reprints of the original Player Aid Cards and 180 new counters. Containing 2 of the 4 Trajan Series Games: Roman Civil War and Caesar In Gallia.

A description of the original four games:
  • Trajan: A simulation of the Roman military campaign in the east in the years 114-117 AD.The Romans under the leadership of Emperor Marcus Ulpius Nerva Trajan, conquered the Parthian kingdom and extended the Roman Empire's boundaries to the Persian Gulf. One player controls the Romans, the other the Parthians.

  • Roman Civil War: A simulation of the conflict that took plcae between Julius Caesar and various senatorial opponents. Those wars destroyed the republic and paved the way for the empire. One player controls the Caesarians, the other the Senatorials.

  • Caesar in Gallia: A simulation of the Roman conquest of the regions of what today comprise France, Belgium and Switzerland in 58-51 BC. Caesar defeated several coalitions of Gallic tribesmen, repelled a German invasion and established Gaul as one of the chief provinces of the Roman Empire during the course of this conflict. One player controls the Romans, the other the Gauls and other barbarian forces.

  • Germania: A simulation of Roman operations in ancient Germany in the first century of the Christan era.

Redone rules and tables, along with a new tactical "Battle Board" option, are included. Additionally, this expansion presents 180 new counters, along with 11 new scenarios played on all four maps as one huge monster game. Among the new scenarios are: "Year of the Four Emperors," "Marcus Aurelius," and "What If Caesar Hadn't Been Assassinated?" Each turn represents one to several months; each map hexagon is 46 miles across, and the main units of maneuver are legions and barbarian warbands.
