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?
