The Roman Game Collection - 3 games in 1

Experience the glory that was Rome, from its most desperate moment to the height of its power. This three-in-one package provides quick-playing gamettes on three different aspects of Roman history: the war with Hannibal, the chariot races of the Circus Maximus and the power politics of the Empire. This introductory game package is loaded with fun.

In Hannibal vs. Rome, two players match wits across the Western Mediterranean for dominance. Each player maneuvers legions and fleets across the key paths toward each other's capital, using number cards to resolve battles. All rests upon putting forth your strongest effort at the right time and place.

In Circus Maximus, up to five players use their cards to propel their teams of three chariots to the finsh line, while cleverly obstructing the path of their opponents.

In Imperium, up to five players vie for pro-consulships in eight provinces of the Empire, using influence to acquire power. Each player must assess the value of short-term acquisitions versus developing a power base over the long-term in more valuable locations, while judging when best to bend the ear of Caesar to speed up the selection process.

All three of these gamettes have few pieces and rules; each can be taught and played very quickly. Relying upon mastery of card play from limited-size hands of equal value, they reward players for guessing their opponent's intentions and calculating the range of responses left in their hands.

Glory to the Vanquished!
