For the roman emperors, the perfect formula to have people on your side was "panem et circensem": bread and games. How many games require to give this to your people?

Not people, but feeding is important.

In The Republic of Rome, your faction of senators can sponsor games for the people Rome, in order to bring down the unrest level (you can just make out the Games Table in this picture of the board). Definitely a good idea, both to prevent revolt, and to show the other players that you're interested in helping Rome and not just hording your money. I mean, that's why you have all those concessions, right? Right?

Famine and pollution are your enemies in this game, in many ways more so than the other players. Keeping food production up allows you to bring in more people into your city or cities and keeps them from turning into little graves!

Feeding your people is the first, most critical step in each turn.

This doesn't necessarily have to do with feeding you people, per say, but in this game you have to watch how often you raise your taxes. If you go to war and over tax your people, you automatically lose the game because your country has revolted.
