Circus Maximus
The grandeur and decadence of ancient Rome in your living room! Thrill to the dust of chariot races, or the skillful bloodshed of gladiatorial combat. Circus Maximus is really TWO games in one. In the Chariot Race game you pick your team of horses, driver, and chariot car, each of which have special characteristics. You can even mount bladed scythes on your wheels, but you'll need superior skill and endurance to survive your competitors and cross the finish line first. In the Gladiatorial Combat game, you pick up your weapons and step onto the blood¬stained sands, simultaneously maneuvering, striking, and waiting for that fatal step that puts you inside your opponent's guard. The entire Circus Maximus package comes boxed with a 21% by 27%" two-sided mapboard, die-cut playing pieces, rule booklet, various charts and tables, and special record and scoring pads. You can even bet on the outcome, but in sesterces only, please !
