Ludi Romani

The Ludi Romani will be played next on Friday, April 11, 2014, in the Skyroom of the TSC. Dinner will be served at 5:30 and the Game will begin at 6:30.

The Ludi Romani (Roman Games) were a religious festival in ancient Rome. They were held annually since 366 BCE, normally from September 12 to September 14. These Ludi Romani are a re-enactment of the period between the asassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BCE until the Battle of Actium in 31 BCE. Players assume the roles of Senators, Generals, Kings and Gods (and in some cases Senators who are also generals who want to be king and think that they are a god) in a political and military struggle to become the most powerful person in charge of the most powerful faction in the world.

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
