Age of Rome is a strategy board game that pits you in the center of Roman political strife. You and three of your friends will need to use your cunning to build a strong military, establish your dominance in the capital, and claim your rightful place as ruler of the empire.
Caesar has fallen, assassinated by his fellow kinsmen. Now it is time to establish a new leader. Play as one of five potential rulers: Marcus Antonius, Fulvia, Aemilius Lepidus, Gaius Octavius, or Cassius. Each ruler has their own special abilities, ranging from powerful military control to control over trade.
From here, the game is yours to explore. Use Denarii (the in-game currency) to purchase different upgrades and buildings across the Roman Empire. Create trade routes to gain access to powerful cards to change the tide of the game. Build alliances and vote in the Senate to achieve a Majority rule. Spread religion far and wide, building up the strength of the Pantheon. Each move will gain you favour, potentially with other players and/or with the citizens of the nation.
You may gain allies and build bonds, but remember – only one will rule.
But your opponents will not be the only challenge you face. The board itself spins, bringing you to different locations every turn. This constant changing will require you to constantly update and rethink your strategy.
