Arena Games, Gladiatorial Combat


"You stand in the dark. You have your sword ready. You can hear the faint murmur of the crowd in the background. Ah yes, the crowd. That blood thirsty collection of pathetic excuses for human beings. Hard to believe that your life may hang in the balance. The decision of whether you live or die may lie with that crowd. Suddenly, trumpets blast. The gate is raised, and you walk out into the sunlight. As you do the crowds murmur turns into a roar beyond description! This is it. All your training will be tested today. You can feel your adrenaline begin to pump. You can't wait to get the first blow in. Suddenly, it all becomes clear and you decide that you will kill! Kill or die!"



Arena Games, Gladiatorial Combat, simulates Roman gladiator Combat. Combat can be an individual one on one fight between two gladiators, a fight between 2 or more gladiators per side, or gladiators against wild beasts.

The game is realistic, yet simple and is ideal for convention play.  It can accomodate up to 12 players with a minimum amount of management.  It was awarded "Best Ancients Game" at FALL IN, and high praise from all who have played it.

Can a gladiator only move forward?
Or can he move backwards/sideways too (for just 1 AP)?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
