Republic of Rome
From the Manufacturer
Robert Haines’ and Richard Berthold’s classic game of political intrigue and diplomacy is back in full form. Republic of Rome is a distillation of 250 years of Roman history, from about 265 B.C., all in one evening. In Republic of Rome, players are in a constant balancing act between personal advancement and the welfare of the State. Players build the Empire from scratch and thus develop and change the political environment in which they are competing. Players’ senators vie for political power, military commands and economic advantages against the backdrop of a turbulent world. Deals and counter offers abound. Short the necessary votes for Consul? Trade the Armaments Concession for a faction’s support? Spartacus has destoyed your villa? Send Pompey off with ten legions to crush him. But is that too much power to entrust in one man? What if Pompey rebels and marches on Rome?

In Republic of Rome (ROR) You are a senator of Rome. Your vying for power in the way of influence and popularity. First player to obtain a set amount of influence demanded for the victory for one senator will win the game. Players gain influence in a number of ways, holding office, going to war ect ect. It's not that easy to have a quick win because the game is a Co-op game with back stabbing, double crossing and dog eat dog treachery. If Rome falls and burns so do all the players. I have played this game many times throughout many years this copy is a reprint from it's original i profess to be an expert on the game. The game plays best with 5-6 people. I don't think it plays as fun as a solo game but you can play it solo if you choose to. The only game that compares to this game that i know of is Junta.
Players throughout the game will be elected to different offices of the roman republic. Players will have to manage Roman estates and finances and military. Both in spending and in warfare. Active and none active wars of historical account will come up through the course of the game and depending on the scenario type selected to play the game with give way to that type of historical account that you and your players will face. I'm not going to list pros and cons i will simply say this is not your family game. This is game for hard core board game players who love history and warfare and scenario styled games. You can not learn this game in a single hour. It will take some time to learn all of its rules and game play features and a game master should be selected prior to a game session to read the rules and guide players. It doesn't play in a couple hours it takes several hours to play. It's more or less an all day game. But what a game. It puts you in the seat of power as close as you can get to being right there in ancient Rome. Diplomacy in the game, treachery in the game,back stabbing and power mongering in the game makes this game very enjoyable but also a very aggressive game. Choose your players wisely to have an enjoyable game. Make sure those you play with can handle being back stabbed or taken advantage of without getting mad. It's not a game for lose cannon players. Remember if Rome falls you all lose. The game tactic and saying " ill remember that " will not work well in this game. For times will come when players have to contribute to Rome for the greater good or everyone will face hardship. This means you have to put petty differences to the side to save Rome. All i can say is if your a hard core game player, this the game for your collection. Looking for a great family game this is not it! Go find Agricola for a great family game because ROR is not it! If you have played diplomacy or Junta you will want this game in your collection.
This is not a game for the faint of heart, but the mechanics and execution of the game is brilliant.
The big thing I learned is that you learn the rules far faster if you play it with some pros rather than try to learn it online with a noob group.
If I had ONE problem with it, it's that it's hard to find players that are willing to truly learn the game. It has a steep learning curve, and you will be lost for your first FEW games.
