Britannia allows players to recreate the turbulent history of Britain from the coming of the Romans (AD 43) to conquest by the Normans (AD 1085). Each player controls several tribes and leaders including the Angles, Saxons, Irish, Norsemen, Danes, Boudicca, King Arthur, Offa, and many other recognisable names from British history. The power of each tribe will rise and fall as the game progresses through the centuries, so players must work out when to expand and when to consolidate each.
Classic Britannia plays in the way all Britannia fans know and love, benefiting from Lew Pulsipher's continued development and player feedback. Duel Britannia is a new, fast-playing adaptation for two players, on a new board including Ireland.
