A game manual is a handbook, usually containing detailed data about all aspects of the game, including operating instructions and sometimes tactics and strategy tips. Manuals for Imperialism and Imperialism 2 have been found to be inaccurate in some respects.

Imperialism 2 had at least one manual, possibly two. One was produced by Mindscape in England, using British English and differing slightly from the Demo version of the game and from the in-game Tutorial.
