Patch 2 now live.

Hi all sorry for the delay on this one.

Added a detach and move leader button:

If you get a card saying you can move a leader a button will now appear above the end turn button. During the selection phase click that button and you will be able to select the leader of your choice. During the move phase click the button to move the leader if you have more than one leader selected click the button again to move the next leader.

Elephants should now work as intended.

Retreat now applies correct amount of retreat actions and you lose points for moving off the board.

Fixed an issue which was causing some scenarios to have the player on the wrong side of the board.

Command cards which issued an order to a number of a certain type of unit now lets you order 1 unit of your choice if you do not have any of the unit type required by the card. This has been added to the card description.

Fixed graphic settings not saving.

Any issues please let us know.

About This Game



Hexwar Games has partnered with GMT Games to bring you a digital version of Commands & Colors: Ancients the board game. The game allows players to portray important engagements of ancient history. The battles focus on the historical deployment of forces and important terrain features on the scale of the game system.

The scale of the game is flexible and varies from battle to battle. For some scenarios, an infantry unit may represent an entire legion of soldiers, while in other scenarios, a unit may represent just a few brave warriors.

The command card system drives movement, creates “fog of war” and presents players with many interesting challenges and opportunities, while the battle dice resolve combat quickly and efficiently. The battlefield tactics you will need to execute to gain victory conform remarkably well to the strengths and limitations of the various ancient unit types, their weapons, the terrain and history.



  • 15 scenarios from important engagement of ancient history.
  • Over 50 unique combat and command cards to simulate tactical and strategic choices.
  • Make strategic choices faithful to the era with chariots, archers, foot soldiers and mounted units.
  • Play as Syracusan, Carthaginian or Roman.
  • Three levels of AI difficulty.
