Alea Jacta Est - Parthian Wars


PARTHIAN WARS is a historical operational strategy game with simultaneous turns (WEGO system) that places you in command of Rome or their Eastern nemesis, the Parthians (from 53BC to 197AD).

You play the part of the military and political leadership, guiding your nation to victory, through some of the toughest conflicts of the Ancient world, represented by 5 challenging scenarios.

Parthian Wars is an expansion for Alea Jacta Est and requires a version of Alea Jacta Est to run.
