Pandemic: The Fall of Rome
Product code: AC8543
At the height of its power, the Roman Empire held more than two million
square miles of territory containing over a hundred million people.
Throughout the centuries of its existence, the Empire brought major
advancements in engineering, architecture, science, art, and literature.
By the beginning of the 5th Century, decades of political corruption,
economic crisis, and an overburdened military had exacted a severe toll
on the stability of the Empire. This paved the way for severe incursions
from aggressive barbarian tribes, leading to a decline from which Rome
would not recover. Now citizens, soldiers, and allies of Rome must unite
to protect the Empire.
Combining the cooperative gameplay of Pandemic with innovative new
mechanisms, Pandemic: Fall of Rome takes players back in history to the
time of the world's greatest empire: Rome. A weakened military has left
the borders open to invasion from countless tribes such as the
Anglo-Saxons, Goths, Vandals, and Huns. As you march through the Roman
Empire, you must recruit armies, fortify cities, forge alliances, and
face off against the invading hordes in battle.
Simply defending Rome is not enough; players must find a way to stop the
incursions and find peace with their neighboring peoples. Players
collect sets of matching-colored cards to forge an alliance with the
different tribes. In doing so, they gain the ability to use cards
matching the tribe to convert other members of that tribe into Roman
soldiers, furthering their ability to hold the line against other
Take on unique roles with special abilities to improve your team's
chances to protect against the invaders. Work together, use your skills
wisely, and stop the fall of Rome!
Pandemic: Fall of Rome includes a solitaire mode in which the player
takes on the burden of being the Emperor and commands three different
roles to try to protect the city from the invading hordes. Players who
want a more difficult game can try the "Roma Caput Mundi" challenge by
adding more Revolt cards to the deck; they must also respect the law in
Rome that Roman legions are not allowed in the city.
