Renegade Game Studios, in association with Huch!, are reprinting the Stefan Feld designed and Jo Hartwig illustrated, Roman development game, Trajan. Vasel’s Law has once again kicked in and you can see the The Dice Tower’s glowing opinions of the game over time in their videos. Trajan supports 2-4 players, aged 13+, and plays in roughly 60-120 mins.
“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.” [source]
Players will need to balance politics, military, trading, and other parts of Roman culture. They try to score victory points by taking advantage of 6 different actions using a rondel mechanism to plan them. Careful planning, hampering opponents’ plans, and the careful acquisition of tiles are integral to success with the player having the most victory points at the end of it all being the winner.
Trajan will be released in December of 2018. See the Renegade Games Studios website for more information.
