We've been trying this game out on a run-through with the help of some of these threads here, but I was wondering if someone could give a concise explannation of how the mercenarii and piratae cards work(especially mercenarii)? I think it's all coming together and this seems to be a fun game, with the race and card-building elements, but the rules have been a bit of a workout.

If I remember right: "Mercenarii" allows you to discard one of your buildings (except the "Mercenarii" itself) to get as many steps towards Africa as you got when you purchased that building; while "Piratae" let you discard a building (except the "Piratae" itself) to get the resources composing the cost of that building (the basic cost only; additional costs, due to the position in the Forum when you bought it, are ignored).

Examples:
-) use Mercenarii to discard Gladiatores: you get 3 steps towards Africa;
-) use Piratae to discard Gladiatores: you get 2 food tokens, 1 gold token and 3 peace tokens.

Have fun! meeple
