A playful journey through the fascinating world of ancient Rome. Reiner Knizia has invented 14 new games and put them together as a short history of the Roman Empire. Thinking board and card games, fun family games and exciting tactical games are included:
New Games in Old Rome is a collection of 14 games with Roman themes, by Reiner Knizia. Several of them are excellent games. My favorite is Proconsul, a superb little negotiating game of 45 to 60 minutes duration. Other good games in the box include Tribunal, Imperium, Circus Maximus (much simpler than the Avalon Hill game of the same name), and Hannibal vs. Rome. Considering that you get an assortment of very good games by a gifted designer, this collection is a bargain, really underrated in my view! Just make sure you're getting the English rules, unless you read German.
(By the way, the English rules I have for Proconsul contain my all-time favorite sentence ever from a set of game rules: 'The other players must be silent even if it makes their tongues burn to sit still.' Now, who can resist THAT?!)
