110 AD - the Roman Empire is at its height of glory, ruled by the "optimus princeps," Emperor Trajan. All borders are secured, and people can focus again on the empire's internal matters: Rome. Take your chances and boost your power! With the proper tactics, you may outmaneuver your opponents and eventually claim victory. Players try to score victory points by taking advantage of opportunities with six different actions. At the end of the game, the player with the most points is the winner.
To succeed, you must allocate action markers to the trays of your action circle cunningly, trying to catch the best time for certain actions. On the one hand, it is important to make use of sudden opportunities, such as to get hold of attractive tiles. On the other hand, you must not neglect to give other players a hard time at crucial times. To accomplish this, you may need to scheme some of your actions a few turns in advance.
Regardless of the outcome of your first game, you will become more experienced with each new game, always learning new refinements to your strategy.
