Welcome to the wonderful world of Titan

I received this game for Christmas last year, and quickly became a fan of it.   Unfortunately, my gaming group has yet to be inspired to play a multiplayer game of Titan, so I decided to create a gamebox for it.   This proved to be very time consuming.  There are many elements to Titan: characters, maps, and masterboard.   The masterboard (main mapboard in Titan-ese) was going to be the most difficult challenge of all until I found a respectible bitmap version of it on a Titan PBeM site.    The counters and maps weren't very difficult, there's just a lot of everything in Titan!

NOTE: there are now two versions of this gamebox.  ROB MCDOUGALL has taken the gamebox you see illustrated here, and scanned the map image from the original game to replace the graphic I use for the map.  The resulting file is rather large in comparison, but features graphics from the original game.  You can download Rob's gamebox HERE.   Note the download file is 1.07 meg zipped.  I can't get it to download, so I can't provide screenshots.


Potential Downloader: I'm providing this Titan game support module to you for your personal use, based upon the presumption that you legally own a physical copy of the game Titan, published by Avalon Hill/Hasbro, and copyrighted 1982 by Avalon Hill.     This module is provided free of charge, for no commercial consideration.   Please respect Avalon Hill/Hasbro's copyrights and do not distribute this module beyond your own pc or other Titan gameplayers who also own the game. 

This module is created using Cyberboard, Dale Larson's excellent FREE play by email utility.  If you haven't picked this up yet, please visit the Cyberboard website to get a copy:  You cannot use this Titan gamebox without Cyberboard!  CB runs on Wintel machines only... so if that's a showstopper, my apologies.
