Supplements

Gladiator School

Supplemental meta-game for Gladius. Players are masters of their own gladiator schools. Buy them, train them, and send them to the arena.

Gladius Miniatures Variant

These rules were designed to be used in conjunction with the Gladius card game and its supplement Gladiator School by Lloyd Krassner. They provide a way of using miniature figures to show the relative distance between the fighters and give the game a little more color and realism with only a moderate increase in complexity. The only extra equipment need for this variant are miniatures representing the gladiators and a rectangular card (the Display) that is divided into three equal parts across its length. The divisions of the card should be big enough to hold two figures. The card I use for my 28mm figures is 4 1/2" long and 1 1/2" wide (12cm x 4cm). It is divided into 3 squares 1 1/2"x 1 1/2" (4cm x 4cm). In place of miniature figures, counters, coins, pawns, salt and pepper shakers or any other suitable markers may be used just as long as the players can distinguish one marker from the other.
