TITAN LIVES !!!

 

About the Site
This is not the Official Colossus Home Page. This site is intended as a Fan Site to spread the word about Colossus and some Titan information. Colossus is the first Titan game clone that actualy works! I've loaded this page with information for those people who havent heard about it yet. Also, I am hoping this site is user friendly enough for less experienced persons to get some basic questions answered and the information they need to install the required files and get the game running. All Colossus game files and docs are linked to the Official Colossus site to make sure everyone has the most recent and complete list of files.

Original Titan Game Information

Avalon Hill?
Avalon Hill has been purchased and is currently owned by Hasbro. Titan is currently out of print and is a very rare and hard to find board game for purchasing purposes. No further information is available about future production of the older Avalon Hill games by Hasbro.

 

Game Description:
Titan™ is a 2 to 6 player boardgame produced by The Avalon Hill Game Company. The game consists of two levels of play. Players move legions on one large map recruiting minions to fight with. When two opposing legions meet on this board the battle is fought out on a Battle Board representing the type of terrain the legions were in on the main board. Each player is represented by a special character (the players alter ego) which is the Titan marker. When that character is killed the player is eliminated. Play continues until only one or zero players are left.

For more information about how to play Titan™, and the finer points of the "Titan™ Law" (rules) and "Titan Errata" (rules updates) please visit Bruno Wolff's Titan Site.

Original "LAW OF TITAN" (Rules) Archive (1.6 MB) in PDF format
The Titan Rules .pdf file was requested by a current owner of the original game for archival purposes .... you must own a copy of the game to download the .pdf file. If you do not own a copy and you download the file you should delete it immediately.

"Badlands" - Battlelands and Rules Archive (2.96 Mb)
Rules info is in .PDF format and all maps are black and white (very clean images). You can print them with your favorite graphics viewing program.
