A medium review for this product, generally due to its suitability in recreating the game.

No images for the box are included. This is disappointing for those that want to recreate the set.

The rules are of excellent quality, they are OCR scans of the rules and include the later editions' 'History of the Imperium'.

There are two maps included with the rules that are for reference only, they are unreadable and not suitable for playing on. This is rectified by the inclusion of a second file that contains a higher quality scan of the 1990 map. This scan is playable and readable. Unfortunately, only this one map is included, the second map of 2005, that is included in unreadable form with the rules, is not available in a higher resolution scan.

The tokens are a mix of hit and miss, generally they are usable, however, the low resolution scans make them unsuitable to recreating the board game, and are more suited as a reference to an existing set.

Just a quick spot check comparison review of this and the previous (CT-CD) PDF version.

The scans look about the same quality and are equally good (mostly).

The DTRPG version has an extra page, a one page chart for tracking turns, resource units, and war/peace time that was missing in the CT-CD version.

Both have the same two pages out of order in the history section, no biggie but it might have been corrected in the DTRPG version. Maybe it'll get fixed in the required update.

Why a required update you're wondering?

The game board map is unreadable in both copies so it'd be really hard to play the game. However the CT-CD version does have an expanded map graphic included for the game that is of very playable quality. That should be added to this version before I'd recommend anyone buy it and hence my low rating. Add 2 or 3 when it gets fixed.
