Thanks for keeping site up. I still hope one day to again play the variants we played back when we used a first edition copy- and ruined many a counter.

Love the game, it's never been imitated or beaten.

game development inspired by Titan

looking back through my original Titan game/rules and also Gods of Titan ... I've been playing since 1984 and really appreciate all that you, the original and variant gamedevs have done! Anyone interested in collaborating on what could be described as a character-based game that is simpler than the original Titan, no movement roll, with similar dynamics to chess and stratego ... please be in touch. Sad to see that the only recent posts have been spammers :(

This is a great game. Are there any pictures for a board and creatures for the Mythos Titan? I would love to print it out and try it. Also, is there any new news on the Gods of Titan yet? I'm really excited to try that too.

struggled with he new version until I worked out how to get it onto one page. Now playing it constantly (again) been Titan fan since 1983, and remember reading about it in Dragon Magazine. Think abyss and undead work well - the other ones have too many one off areas - and I like the sense of sequence and planning - maybe they'll grow on me Brilliant work though THANKS again
All time favorite
thanks to all the people who continue to develop this game and keep it alive. cheers to all titan players!

Hi there, I case you didn't notice, we've done a new release (plus some bugfix releases ;-) recently. Over the last years, new features and variants have been added. Have you taken a look recently? Besides, nowadays I am the "main" maintainer of Colossus. BTW, how did your guestbook guess that I am German and presents me the picture buttons "Speichern" and "Zurücksetzen" in my mother language? ;-)) Greetings from Finland! -Clemens
Comment:I fixed it…

Hi. Great site! I have a question for some of the more experienced players. I used to play this game all the time in the early 90's with my friends. I never was any good but lately I've been trying to improve playing colossus. I'm wondering what the prevailing thought is about recruiting the first Gorgon vs. getting a third Cyclops. I've been having good success vs. the computer getting my third cyclops first. I know gorgons and rangers are very important but I think there are few (none?) situations where you would win if your stack had one more gorgon instead of one more cyclops (at least not a battle between important stacks) and being forced to take a cyclops on one of those rare Jungle rolls instead of getting the Behemoth and later forced to take a Behemoth instead of a Serpent outweighs the small disadvantage of having one less gorgon than one could have had. am I thinking about this the right way? Thanks.
Titan is probably my favorite boardgame. I've been playing since the early 1990s. If you want to play online, go to ACTS from Warhorse Simulations. A good group of gamers, and there are always open games looking for players.
Comment:30.01.2017 14:40: I like to play it at ACTS during my student time... long time ago... I loved it when nobody else in the real word had time to play

I've always love Titan; started playing in the 70s! I still have my original set and try to recruit new players. Looking forward to the web client getting fully operational!

Izzy Gambliel's Super-Titan is obviously *not* the same game at all as the expansion produced by myself and Benoît Russo (a.k.a. Productions Boréalis). Ours consists of just the new creatures plus rules to integrate them: no changes to the board.

Playing via ICQ on newnet
Jacapo , email@example.com
Hi again...just noticed that your software page says that colosuss client/server is not working yet. I have been playing recently with no problems using the latest colossus release. Details for the sever and channel can be found on the colossus home page. So all you diehards come on out and play ;) See you there. (sorry for the long message...I could not get the forum page to accept a post)
Playing Colossus via ICQ on NewNet
Hi there; first thanks for a great site :) Any Ideas how to get more people turned on to playing Colossus via ICQ on newnet?
MUST HAVE TITAN!!!!!!!
tordek25860 , firstname.lastname@example.org
After much chagrin, I must attest that my search of the world wide web has produced nill in the way of finding a copy of Titan. I started playing the game over ten years ago, and have worn out two sets since then. I am still amused by the time we were looking at one of the creature tiles then turned it over, then over again, and again, and again before finally realizing that it was a cyclops. Ahh, those were the days.... Anyhoo, I bought my last copy from nobleknight.com for $65.00, I know amazing right, and when I went back a few months later they had a copy for sale for over $200.00! I was outraged! If anyone cane help me in my quest to keep playing the best damn boardgame int the known universe, let me know. I have played the "collossus" game. Nice, but the AI does some stupid things, like not separating the green on the inital split. Thank you for your time.
I only played it for the first time a couple weeks ago. Now me and two of my friends play regularly. Awesome game. I play against the computer too, and the other guys are gonna download it soon. I can't believe someone programmed this game! Kudos to you, man. Kickass game. Ciao

man i didn't know anyone else knew about the sweetest game ever made, your site kicks ass keep it up

Just a big hello to all the other Titan players from around the world. The best board game ever (after Chess, of course...)? I think so. And Colossus - absolutely fantastic.

I am a long time Titan player. Just discovered Colossus and am loving it. Send me a mail and we can play!
Greetings and Variant
Stefan , firstname.lastname@example.org
Great resource, great game. Anyone know where to get new copies, my old one is pushing 25 yrs and is about warn out. Here is a simple variant we used to play: Use two boards connected by the towers, think of the boards as 'stacked'. The towers exist on both planes simultaneously and a legion in a tower can exit into either plane. This can make for some long games, some like those, some don't... This should work with pretty much any other variant...
People! The Titan game, Colussus, is an open-source project. That means, you can help! Go to the site, find out what is going on, and contribute. Play the game, send bug reports, learn java, whatever. It's all about the community and the commitment.
justus , email@example.com
killer site, very well designed and contains a ton of info for a minimum of clicks...helps that I like the clean look of it all. Justus
Always wanted computer version of Titan!
It's great that you've made a computer version of Titan. one of the great games. I will download it shortly. Another game I thought would make a great computer game is Stellar Conquest, another old Avalon Hill game. Thank you for your effort, Steve
Comment:Hello Stephan, thanks, but that's not true. David Ripton is developing the software Colossus. Kind regards, cheewai
I hope to bugger this works...

I figured Titan'd make a _perfect_ computer game - and it is! Supposedly. I'm paranoid; lotsa freewarez tend to not work. I hope this does. Oh do I..
Variant rules question
Martin Brodén , email@example.com
Very nice page! I have a question, though. I dont get the higher elevation hex next to the actual fortification on the Fort Battleland. It just doesn't seem to do any good. Without a slope, I havent found any rule that says that higher elevation block rangestriking. The one case which would be interesting, a rangestrike between the hex in question and the northen hill (because any creature between them would not block rangestriking), is effectively blocked because the tree is in the way. It may have been something I missed, but I dont see what.

Dear sir, I am a great fan of the titan game, in fact i found a new copy of the board game about a year ago at a store here in salt lake called game keeper. they had about 12 copies of the game. my old copy is a bit worn but still fully functional. Anyway, I am very excited about this game "colossus". do you know if the designers are going to develop this into a full-fledged product? if you have any sway with them please strongly encourage them to do so. I love this game!!!!
Titan is sweet...
Paul Orr , firstname.lastname@example.org
I found the game (stumbled over it, actually). Now I'll never get any work done!

Another Titan addict!
Nice and clean titan page! Hopefully you'll stay focused in playing the game. when you're interested in my variant please let me now. I would be proud to see it in the variant-section of your homepage. good luck and may be the mulligan not a "5" ;)
Comment:As I mailed you: I just waiting for your mail! ;o) I think a "5" is much better than a "2"...
Hi Chee Wai, i think it was time to see a good titan webpage. There are not enough of them, and there are even less of good quality. As far as i could see your website seems to be the best for the moment. So good luck with it. I hope you'll get a lot of hits. greetings from germany
the first entry...
... from the webmaster. My TITAN fan page is now open! greetings from germany
Comment:11th feb 2008: 6 years 1 month and 19 days ago this side was born. And I'm happy to re-open it with a new interface and design last weekend. Let see what happen...
