Two thousand years ago, the Roman Empire ruled the lands around the
Mediterranean Sea. With peace at the borders, harmony inside the
provinces, uniform law, and a common currency, the economy thrived and
gave rise to mighty Roman dynasties as they expanded throughout the
numerous cities. Guide one of these dynasties and send colonists to the
remote realms of the Empire; develop your trade network; and appease the
ancient gods for their favor — all to gain the chance to emerge
Concordia is a peaceful strategy game of economic development in Roman
times for 2-5 players aged 13 and up. Instead of looking to the luck of
dice or cards, players must rely on their strategic abilities. Be sure
to watch your rivals to determine which goals they are pursuing and
where you can outpace them! In the game, colonists are sent out from
Rome to settle down in cities that produce bricks, food, tools, wine,
and cloth. Each player starts with an identical set of playing cards and
acquires more cards during the game. These cards serve two purposes:
They allow a player to choose actions during the game.
They are worth victory points (VPs) at the end of the game.
Concordia is a strategy game that requires advance planning and
consideration of your opponent's moves. Every game is different, not
only because of the sequence of new cards on sale but also due to the
modular layout of cities. (One side of the game board shows the entire
Roman Empire with 30 cities for 3-5 players, while the other shows Roman
Italy with 25 cities for 2-4 players.) When all cards have been sold or
after the first player builds his 15th house, the game ends. The player
with the most VPs from the gods (Jupiter, Saturnus, Mercurius, Minerva,
Vesta, etc.) wins the game.
