Description

New game launched to celebrate Agema's 20th year in business!

Scramble for Empire, Agema's new game of imperial Victorian era domination, is now available. The rules can are available as either a download or as a book from the publishers. The game runs by turns either sent by email (PBEM) or via the post (PBM), as the player desires. It has been designed to be fun and fairly easy to play and pits players against each other and against local forces in the various colonies: Google Agema or go straight to www.agema.org.uk for more information!

GORDON SURROUNDED AT KHARTOUM! GOLD RUSH AT BITTEROOT! INDIANS ATTACK MINERS! ROYAL NAVY LANDINGS AT BOURLIUK, MARCH ON SEVASTOPOL EXPECTED! ZULUS ATTACK TRANSVAAL BOERS! COLUMN AMBUSHED IN KHYBER PASS! SEPOY MUTINY AT NAGPUR! BOXERS TAKE NANKING! NIPPON ATTACKS PORT ARTHUR!

The world, as you can see dear reader, is in utter turmoil, and it's up to chaps such as yourself to put it all right. No good relying on the foreign wallahs, they'll just make bad go to worse. No, you're needed, my boy, so leave the comfort of your London gentleman's club and lead the nation to glory and enlighten the poor misguided natives of the wider world! YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU! Yes, I say, you sir! Yes, you, sitting there! Be a good chap and sign up for this rollicking adventure, and lead your nation to glory and imperial power. You should you know. The Scramble for Empire has begun!

(Please note that this game was developed under the working title Imperial Domination which has however changed to Scramble for Empire. It has been designed to be easy to play, in contrast to our last release Wars of the Roses which is pretty complicated to play!).
