It was the Police Patrols, snooping into people’s windows. The patrols did not matter however. Only the Thought Police mattered.

Republic of Rome is another favorite in which I don't consider myself a strong player. It's a game that I play just to have an incredible experience, and this heat did not disappoint!

Things started off rough for the Senate as a first turn Epidemic killed five Senators, including the Temporary Rome Consul. Four more Senators died the next turn between the Mortality Chit draw and Mob Violence, leaving one faction with a single Senator. The Pontifex Maximus was hit by Evil Omens on the second turn and fortunately he had the funds to offset it, but the evil consumed him. He was given an Egyptian Grain concession, and corruptly milked it turn after turn even though Rome was ravaged by drought for years. He eventually became so unpopular that he was voted out of office!

My faction avoided the carnage of the first few turns, and grew in size and influence for the early to middle part of the game. C. Marius won the 1st Macedonian war after three tries, the first two attempts having ended in Stalemate and then Disaster. He was eventually assassinated. Near the end of the game another faction’s Senator marched on Rome and was unsuccessful despite a Manpower Shortage, as the Republic was pretty wealthy at that point and was able to raise a large defensive army even with the greater cost. That faction and another were subsequently completely banished from Rome and sent to govern the provinces. When my most influential living Senator was persuaded away by wealthier faction and I didn’t have the funds to get him back, two of my other Senators died attempting to assassinate the filthy traitor. By the time we adjudicated my faction was a shell of its former glory, and I was in third while the deposed Pontifex Maximus’s faction took the win.

Final Faction Influence:

Henry 63
Patrick 45
Mindy 20
Lee 8
Warren 3

My faction in better times

1990

Once again this year's top game doesn't hold my interest.

Actually, it kinda looks like slim pickings this year (sorry 1990). Having said that, this game looks like it might be a hoot to try just once...

Includes Volume 27, Number 4 of Avalon Hill's General magazine, which is mostly a run-through of Republic of Rome.

Condition: Good. There's no significant damage but the game is old at this point and the box is showing signs of wear, particularly scuffing on the corner. There's nothing that affects the gameplay.

The cards for Early and Mid eras are sleeved (standard game is only one era), Late era cards are not.

Language: English
Version: Avalon Hill First Edition (1990)

Starting bid: 30 euros

Presence at Essen: Thursday to Sunday
Payment: Cash in Essen
Auction ends: Wednesday 5th October sometime

1990

A simulation of Roman politics over 250 years, we have hear a more historical wargame of sorts exploring politics as each player must vie for senatorial control as they get their family/faction to become the most powerful.

A few other "gamer" favorites appeared this year such as Hoity Toity, Eurorails, and Gang of Four. Guesstures tried to appeal to the extroverted party crowd. Kids could try their hand being a Crocodile Dentist. The somewhat popular, with some crowd, Dirty Minds brought sex-themed gaming a bit more into the mainstream.

I briefly dated a British woman when I was in college. For my birthday she gave me the AH version. Pretty nice, eh?

I sold it when I joined the Air Force and wasn't playing games for a while. I bought the Valley Games edition when they reprinted it. I haven't played it much but I'm keeping it this time!

Between listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History and watching episodes of Rome, I'm kind of in the mood to give this a go again. It's been a while.

Deciding whether to give the Censorship to the Temporary Rome Consul in the first senate phase. In effect, best not to, unless his faction got a rum deal in available votes. Of course, not giving it to the only qualified candidate throws open an early competitive vote. Either way, the game is dramatically affected.

Been trying to keep Rome afloat for the last few evenings. It didn't start well with Hannibal out in the first turn. Fought off a couple of minor wars but it looks like the end is nigh, Hamilcar joined Hannibal and the 2nd Punic War is imminent...
