|Our new favorite game! We got this as a wedding present and have already played it half a dozen times. It's a game with tons of strategy but simple game play and non-intimidating artwork. If you like role selection games (puerto rico, race for the galaxy) then get this game. Enjoy!
|An awesome game of strategy and many possibilities!!! If you enjoy games like Race for the Galaxy this will be a hit! I'm so glad we finally got this game!!
|Glory to Rome is a challenging card game that provides much more "gaming" fun then what may appear from the cards. Essentially, Glory is a slightly more complex version of San Juan (and Puerto Rico) in that players can use the cards for a number of different purposes --the card power itself, currency (to bring other cards into play), and markers or resources. Because of the variety of uses and the number of different cards, a "learning game" before you play "for real" with friends is recommended. Also, don't let the cartoonish art (Asterix anyone?) put you off. This is a refined, interesting game. Worse than the art, are the garish, bright primary colors used for the various 'suits' (roles) in the game. All that said, this game is a fantastic value and is highly recommended as a great deal that will be fun to play for folks 12 and older.
