Gaming is going through quite a renaissance (just ask Ross “The Legend” Thompson). But we only got to where we are now via the games of the past. Unfortunately, a lot of those old games are out of print and hard to find. Fortunately, that can be remedied by a new printing. That’s just what Tasty Minstrel Games is doing for Colosseum. Their Emperor’s Edition of the game is up on Kickstarter now.
In the game, players are Roman magistrates who must host a series of shows at the Colosseum in the hopes of winning over the populace. Also, the Emperor might show up. So you gotta watch out for that. As you put on successful shows, you can grow and upgrade your venue, and get even better shows to put people in the seats. Put on the best show in the 5 rounds of play and be the winner!
The campaign has already more than doubled their funding goal with still 35 days left to go.
