March 23, 2016 - 8:31am
Just launched on Kickstarter from Tasty Minstrel Games is the reprint of the classic game Colosseum. In Colosseum you are a Roman impresario trying to produce the grandest spectacles and attract the most spectators to your colosseum. You will do this by collecting sets of performances and upgrading you colosseum in five different phases; investing, acquiring events, trading events, producing events, and closing ceremonies. In investing you will spend money you have earned to upgrade you colosseum to improve your ability to put on shows. Through the acquire and trade portions you will first bid on sets of events to acquire them, and then trade events with other players in order to better your sets. In the producing phase you can put on shows and earn points and money based on how well your production satisfies the noble's desires. Lastly in the closing ceremonies phase the highest scoring player gets a bonus and donates an asset to the lowest scoring player, everyone who put on a show removes a performer and the round begins again. The player who put on the best single performance by the end of five rounds wins. The campaign also boasts other upgrades to the game such as metal coins, updated art and rules, some additional event scrolls, and other component upgrades as stretch goals. With the campaign funding in record time and over three weeks left, the game is going to look pretty good by the end. You can head over to the campaign page to check it out and pledge for your copy.
