Predicted contents:

Two new Houses (obviously, but who are the guys on the box lid?).

Rules for more than two gladiators in the arena.

Rules for animals vs. gladiators.

Hoped for additional contents:

New Market and Intrigue cards.
New Combat rules to give players more tactical choices in the arena.

Too bad...I really wished they added the fat Ludus owner guy with the curly hair. Much more charismatic and would make much more sense than Seppius or Varinius.

THE NAME the serpents and the wolf... Maybe it's because now many bad gladiators (serpents) will be able to take on a Big Bad Gladiator like spartacus (Wolf) in the arena!



Also, I hope they think of adding new types of bidding! Like card with special auction symbols on them or just like 1st card in the market this kind of auctions, second card this kind...

Like everyone shout their bids until someone is the highest... Only one round of bidding around the table... etc..

Based on what I saw on the TV show, probably the expansion name comes from the house sigils (we saw these sigils on the two image teasers as well).

Seppius is leading a local milita in Capua and his sigil are the two serpents entwined. Varinius is a Roman praetor, hence the Capitonline Wolf sigil for his house.

So I guess the name refers to the two new houses (and the game can play up to 6 players now).
