I have never played either one, but have read enough to know that I would probably prefer Glory to Rome because:

- Thanks to poker scoring, Battle Line looks like an abstract, and I strongly prefer at least a thin theme
- BL is only 2p, whereas GtR can handle more
- BL is all about battling each other, where at least a good part of GtR is building up your own stuff, independent of the other player
- I like San Juan, which is supposedly similar to GtR (however, I don't like Race for the Galaxy which is also in the same family)

I see you rated Poker a 10, so clearly our tastes are different. You already have and like Race, so I'm thinking BL might be a better buy for you at this point, assuming you have opportunities to play 2p games.

Glory to Rome hands down. It has a lot of meaty choices. Battleline is a good entry game but if you want a keeper, you can't go wrong with GtR.
