An excellent game that shows that "simple is beautiful"! This one is easy, fast and really fun. Comes out at least a couple of times a year. A classic!

Route blocking fun in the Circus Maxima (4 boards). Make 'em go round the outside and watch their horses give up before they complete the course.

Great production, simple game play. Yes, you see all the usual complaints - limited choices, luck-of-the draw, etc. But given the game is quick and works fabulously for 5 or 6 players in a very short time frame I think the critics are missing the point. The game is fun and has more choice than you might think.

I love this game! One of my fondest gaming experiences is screwing over two players in one move: blocking one, and tieing the other so that he couldn't play a six and win. Since he had to move, though, I was able to play a six and bring victory to my family name.

Admittedly I've introduced the game to a few people who aren't fans because they were heavily screwed, but them's the breaks. The game moves quickly, and although you have only a few choices each turn (with some choices being obvious), I always enjoy playing and seeing how well I can stymie others.

I'm not sure why I like this game so much. The theme, awesome bits, and gameplay all mesh for me into a very enjoyable experience. It's a fun, light game with some good player interaction. One drawback is that the two tracks become old after repeated plays (needed a few expansions!). The "screw your opponents" style of play doesn't appeal to some.

Fun, fun game. Lots of luck (although not without a degree of decision making) but that doesn't matter 'cos it plays quickly and it's just fun. Our favourite filler by far

Randomness factored out by the cards stack and a great element of blocking opponents. Over time my preference for number of players has changed a bit. I still love a 6-player party, but I've found out I still enjoy it with less players, even at 3 players.

Wonderful racing game with a twist that makes it a highly tactical game. And with the added benefit that a 6-player game only takes 15 minutes! For this reason it has been our favorite late night filler game for more than a decade - and we always end up playing several games even though we were supposed to go home...!

I've played the new Pro Ludo edition and it is very nice. The cards are excellent, the chariots and coins are just like the originals and the tracks are drawn very well. However, the track design seems weaker than the original. Maybe they wanted something simpler to comprehend, but it does seem to lack the sharp edge of the original design. Still, it's well worth getting and still great fun. A must buy game.

Absolute classic chariot race, spend big money to obtain this game. Cut-throat very fast card based race, simple choices, but the chance to be utterly ruthless to win. Hilarious.

Played the Japanese version Q-Jet 21xx, it is identical and still great fun.

A very easy game to play. It's over quickly, and supports a large number of people, with a lot of interaction. Basically it's the perfect game, to me, and I don't see myself ever tiring of it.

Rating is for Q-Jet. I've played the new Ave Caesar but it's a bit of a 'meh', I think because the track is different.

Perfect short race game with some card management. We played it always with 4 and seldom with 3 and 1 time with 6. It was always a very close finish.

Addition to the german Pro Ludo version: This version has different maps then the original Ravensburger version. Also the rules vary slightly and not to the advantage from the game. We decided to take from each player a 1 or 2 card out of the card pile to make the game more challeging. Further the maps are not made for 3 players.

The new Pro Ludo edition is 'meh', I think because the tracks are different. So I splurged and got the original Ravensburger edition. Still in shrink, so haven't played it yet -- but it's identical to Q-Jet except for theme so this gets a 10 too.

So good I hunted down both versions of the game. A super easy play a card move that number of spaces game that is surprisingly evil when some prime blocking opportunities presents itself! One of those games that can be played across any age range and any personality. Summed up in a word it is fun.

This is a fantastic, light, gateway game. It never fails to please the table when I bring it out. This isn't a game that will thrill a heavy gamer. But, if you want a light, fun, filler, this is a great game.

An excellent racing game for all of the family as well as one for the gamers to play.
The newer version whilst easier to get hold of does not play as well as the original.I would only rate the new version a 7.....

This is an excellent light racing game. Its easy to teach and fun to hear people stand up and shout "Ave Caesar" when they toss their coin. The screwage is delightful, yet seldom malicious or personal. I only wish they had an expansion with a few more tracks...

ave ceasar: love it, especially with the ramming rule where things can get quite nasty and the carnage a bit more with a high possibility of not being able to cross the line...

q-jet: nice little spaceships, pleasant to move, but meh, give me chariot racing any day...

A friend found a shrink-wrapped Ave Caesar on the bottom shelf in a toy store i Denmark, and he kindly purchased it for me .
:-)
Since I enjoy this games so much I had to get Q-Jet as well. The graphics in Ave Caesar is better, but Q-Jet comes i a Carcassonne-size box and is much easier to carry around.

Update 09.26.2006: OK, I had to get the ProLudo edition as well, so now I own three editions of the game. Must get Ausgebremst as well, I guess.

This is a great racing game!
