An invasion of barbarian tribes can certainly feel like pandemic to the Roman world. Matt Leacock and Paolo Mori have teamed up to bring the Pandemic gameplay to Ancient Rome. In Pandemic: Fall of Rome, players are members of Roman society employing Roman legions to defend against invading tribes. Plays may also convert members of a tribe into Roman soldiers. Rome survives to continue its long history is they can defeat all the barbarian tribes, whether by absorption or eradication. Rome has five barbarian tribes threatening its borders: Huns, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandals, and Anglo-Saxons and Franks. Each invading tribe follows their migration pattern that eventual leads to Rome. Pandemic: Fall of Rome will also feature a Solo Play mode and a challenge mode for season Pandemic players. The tribes are represented by wooden cubes like all pandemic games, but the Roman legion tokens are legionnaire shaped meeples. The game will include custom dice for resolving battles with the invading hordes. Pandemic: Fall of Rome is available for pre-order now with a projected release in Q4.
