Hope folks don't mind the commercial break, but my next game, co-designed with Brad Johnson, has just been placed on the P500 list. It is set in the Roman empire during the 3rd century. Here is part of the text from the P500 page, if you want more information please visit:
http://www.gmtgames.com/p-513-time-of-crisis.aspx

During the Crisis of the Third Century, the Roman Empire nearly collapsed in the face of calamitous internal and external strife, including continuous civil war and barbarian invasions from all directions. Beginning with the assassination of Emperor Alexander Severus, a period of 50 years saw nearly as many different men seize imperial power over all or part of the Empire, until the reforms of Diocletian in 284 AD ushered in an era of peace.

In Time of Crisis, 2-4 players take the reins of Roman dynasties, gathering and wielding influence among the senate, military, and people of Rome to ensure that their legacies are remembered by history instead of being lost to the mists of time. Starting from control of one province and a few low-value cards, you are challenged to establish your base of power during this fragile period of Roman history. You must build your armies, take control of valuable provinces, develop your support, and defend yourself against barbarian incursions, inopportune events, and the machinations of your political opponents.

Just so everyone knows, I just submitted the request to create a bgg game entry for Time of Crisis, so hopefully it will be up soon, and we can move discussion for it over there.

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Pre-ordered by me as well. Love the idea of a multiplayer game on Rome that I could play on a weeknight!

The deckbuilding focus worries me, but I'd love to see a YouTube demo on this.

Preordered. Your last effort was truly great Imo, so I expect this will be worthwhile.

Not sure how to do a youtube video, but I can try to put together a video showing a sample turn using my play test kit.
