Ariovistus: A Falling Sky Expansion
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT1811
Ariovistus is a prequel expansion to COIN Series Volume VI, Falling Sky, which is necessary for play. Ariovistus adds the first part of the Roman conquest of Gaul, when Caesar intervened against the migrating Helvetii, turned back a Germanic invasion led by the Suebi chieftain Ariovistus, and suppressed the strongly resistant Veneti maritime tribe.
In Ariovistus, one player takes the role of the Germanic Tribes — at this earlier time a major threat to Gauls and Romans alike. Other players run the Romans, Aedui, and Belgae as in Falling Sky.
This is not a stand-alone game. A copy of Falling Sky is required to play.
