Building houses isn’t hard, but supplying them with water sure is! In accordance with the farmers’ rules of the ancient Roman provinces, players settle the fertile land with their houses. However, even the most luxurious houses are worthless without a reliable water supply. If a player does not supply his houses with water before the region they are in is completely developed, the residents, good or bad, must leave and the house does not earn the player any points. The player who best uses clever tactics , along with a little luck, to place wells and canals at the right time while securing the best building spaces, will outmaneuver their opponents and win the game.
