Kampf um Rom (Battle for Rome)
Rome was captured nine times. Innumerable natural catastrophe,
and an avalanche of barbarian invasions accompanied the collapse
of classical civilization. This epoch lasted almost six centuries and from
it emerged a new Europe, one that in many ways endures to this day.
BATTLE FOR ROME consists of two games by different designers each of whom presents his own treatment of the period of barbarian invasions.
In both games players attempt to manipulate invaders and catastrophes
so that more damage is done to their opponent’s
units than their own.
The game box contains:
1 game board with a map of central and western Europe during the period of barbarian migrations
52 cards representing the peoples inhabiting and invading Europe during the migrations and 8 catastrophe cards
120 wooden game tokens with color illustrations of Romans and
1 pad of "Cultural Progress" charts
Playing time: 2 to 4 hours
3 to 4 players ages 16 and up
