Product Description

In Roman Taxi, players compete as chariot-driving cabbies racing around ancient Rome, delivering famous historical figures to well known places like the Forums, Parthenon, and the Coliseum. Can you get Caesar to the Senate on time, or will you be thrown to the lions? Do you have room for Hadrian and his wall, or will you pass him up for Caligula and his "friends"? Will you get Achilleus to the hospital in time, or would you rather pick up someone who won't get blood all over your pristine chariot?

With an innovative movement system, players must make tactical decisions about how best to move their cabs, and how those movement choices affect the other chariot drivers. Do you want to move as fast as possible, even if that gives the other players better movement choices for their taxis? Or should you take a slightly slower route to cut off your competition? Each choice you make affects every other player, so the best players will always be thinking ahead!

With over 50 humorous caricatures of famous Roman citizens, politicians, and generals, Roman Taxi is sure to bring smiles and laughter to every game. The rules are easy to understand -- with intuitive movement and fast turns -- but mastering the winning strategies will require playing game after unique game.

Roman Taxi comes complete with a game board showing twisting taxi routes through ancient Rome, a deck of passenger cards with historical Roman figures, a movement deck with events to alter game play, and chariots for each of the players.
