In this scenario you control the kingdom of Macedonia. The map spans the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent, and is almost completely devoid of forests. In addition to Macedonia, there are four nonplayable civilizations, some of which include Persia, Egypt (which is a vassal of Persia), and India (which plays a minor role in this scenario). Barbarian cities are disabled, but there are new buildings and units that capture the feel of ancient Greek culture and warfare.
The Macedonians control a large army; as the name of the scenario suggests, you must use it to conquer the lands of the other civilizations. Alexander himself appears in this scenario as a Great General. He cannot permanently die, but instead respawns three months after being defeated.
Alexander's Conquests is won by destroying all civilizations or having the most points when time runs out.
