"Rome has fallen and the world is again in chaos. You must take your place as the leader of a civilization and lead it to victory. Employ troops, develop technologies, and manage your resources to make the other civilizations cower before you. Inspired by the Microsoft award-winning computer game, the Age of Empires Expandable Card Game from Journeyman Press requires cunning maneuvers and high strategy to emerge victorious. Do you have what it takes to... Crush your foes?"
For those who are familiar with the computer game, the concepts and general play are very similar and should be easy to follow. Your goal is to decide how to build your chosen civilization into the reigning society. The innumerable combinations of civilizations play styles, and specific types of units, technologies and events make the Age of Empires ECG completely customizable to each player's taste. While the card game is similar to the computer game, there are some interesting mechanics that will set this game apart from any other card game on the market. With scenarios and campaigns for one or more players, any strategy game fan will wear the edges off their cards.
The sea, long a mistress of men, summons you forth. Set sail to destroy an enemy navy and increase power of your valiant civilization. Nautical is the first expansion to the Age of Empires Expandable Card Game and features additional rules, 150 new cards and two new scenarios. The water system and added ships are the main feature for this set. Make a commanding presence in your enemy's water, and they will beg for mercy.
Nautical is available in stores now. The four new civilizations in Nautical are the Franks, Japanese, Saracens and Vikings.

As the fog of gray powder faded away, the huddled holy men of the cloth began to say prayers for the freshly slain. Smoke and Saints, the second expansion to the Age of Empires ECG line, will be released in Fall, 2001. Smoke and Saints will include four new civilizations, the Byzantines, Chinese, Teutons and Turks. There will be around 120 new cards, plus 30 core cards from the base set. The new game features, such as the long-awaited Monk and Univeristy technologies, and the ever-powerful Gunpowder units, complete the topics covered by the base computer game. Whether to avoid cannon fire, or lift up a miracle request, be prepared to knee.
Be sure to check the New/Strategy portion fore descriptions of each civilization. You will also be able to find scenarios for all styles of play in this section.
