Roman Civil Wars
From Scenario League Wiki
Roman Civil Wars is a scenario for Civilization 2 - Test of Time. It covers the War of the First Triumvirate, through the War between the Second Triumvirate and the Assassins, and the ensuing civil war between Octavian and Antony. It ends in 27 BCE at the time of Octavian's victory and coronation as Emperor Augustus.
Roman Civil Wars can be played as a single player or a multiplayer game. All civilizations are playable, though the Roman Senate is not advised for single player, as it is somewhat easier. Leader units play an important role in the scenario. The Cisalpine Legions have Julius Caesar, who is succeeded by Octavian. The Spanish Legions have Pompey, who is succeeded by Sextus. The Syrian Legions have Crassus, who is succeeded by Antony. And the Roman Senate has Cicero, followed by Brutus. The other civilizations have one leader only: Orodes for Parthia, Vercingetorix for the Gauls, and Cleopatra for the Egyptians.
For the purpose of handicapping more experienced players in a multiplayer game, or for a greater challenge in a single player game, the Syrian Legions and the Cisalpine Legions are the most difficult to play. The Spanish Legions (Pompey), the Gauls, and the Egyptians are intermediate, and the Roman Senate and the Parthians are the easiest. The game lasts from December 55 BCE to December 27 BCE (164 turns). Good luck, citizen!
