My worst subject throughout has always been foreign languages. I took both Spanish and Latin in high school. I continued with Latin in college because I had to fulfill a requirement and since it was a dead language we didn't spend much time speaking it.

Anyway, I was reading EnderWiggins review: What kind of nonsense is this? A Pictorial Review of Board Game Latin and thought I would see how many games have Latin names and what those names might mean.

I haven't done anything with Latin in more than a decade. So, there are probably errors. There are also a few that I know I don't know. So, if you do please comment. Also, feel free to add any I might have missed even if you don't know the translation.

vinum is wine.

possibly dative or ablative case. to wine or from wine or something like that.

EDIT: I should have been more careful in my research. The is in Italian not Latin. Similar, but different.

Time of dragons?

This is the word for dragon, but the declension doesn't seem right. I'm just not sure.

Kinda cheating

Roma = Rome

Or is this just Italian masked as Roman period?
