I'd love to get a tally going to see what is the lowest-numbered Event people have seen win a game of Colosseum.

What have you seen?

I won with 23 tonight.

Notably: I had *all the pawns but one* in my arena on the last turn, and I went first. On turn one was an auction for a group of 3 Emperor tokens (!?), which I won. It hurt not having assets on the first turn, but allowed me to dominate the pawns.

Ending scores were: 77,77(I won the tie based on money),76,75,73.

If the 76 player had rolled *anything other than the 3* on the last turn, it would have given him three additional points and the win. He didn't.

I'll have to play again, as the won-only-by-a-die-roll is a little less than satisfying. But it does seem the entire session was uniquely bizarre.

You don't need a second arena upgrade for this one. And you don't need to buy many programs. And (very important) you don't need many items for it, so you are not hurt that much when you go for first, and people draw something from you. You have your necessary things after 3 rounds, and can use trading/buying in round 4/5 to replace stuff lost to the last player. Players going for big events don't like to be first in previous rounds, to prevent extra item loss.
Went something like this:
1 x arena upgrade
1 x program 20
3 x season tickets
+1 season ticket (extra build chip)

Value could be something like:
32 base value
10 2 previous events
20 4 season tickets
12 4 times first place
9 3 emperor medals
8 2 star performers
5 1 senator in arena
for a total worth of 96.
(i think it was a bit lower, just wanted to show the possible numbers)

I've also won with the #20 in a similar way, lots of season tickets and a couple of early podiums.

It ended up being the lowest winning score I've seen as it was in the mid 70's but it helped that nobody else managed to get all the bits for their event. That of course was partly due to the fact that I didn't need to trade for the last couple of rounds which tightened up the game somewhat.

I can beat that, we played on Wednesday and I won with event number 16.
Base score (all assets) = 23 points
2 Previous events = 10 points
2 crowd upgrades = 10 points
1 podium = 3 points
Emperor attending = 7 points
4 emperor medals = 12 points
3 star performers = 12 points
Total 77 points, the person in second place had 76 points.
