I've just played my first game and must count this as one of the most elegant and entertaining games I've ever acquired. I love the board, the blocks, the mechanics. It's simple, yet full of intriguing strategical possibilities.

All three players ended up being Consul which led to an exciting showdown in the fourth year. With Crassus needing only two more aligned senators to win the game, he was pipped at the post by Caesar who achieved the maximum out on both competence tracks.

A interesting strategy is hoarding gold. As there is a limit to the amount of gold in the game, it is a definite advantage at times to exhaust the treasury supply and keep your gold until the right moment to spend it. In this way, you deny the other players any gold at all.

Anyone else try this approach?
