ROME & ROLL (PSC Games, 1 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, 60 minutes; £35)


Roll and Writes are a relatively recent entry into the World of Games. Essentially, they require a roll of the dice coupled with writing on a board to accomplish various goals. An early – and highly successful – example is Qwixx (Summer 2013 Gamers Alliance Report).  Simple and straightforward. In this new release, roll and write simplicity has been left behind. The challenge is to rebuild the great city of Rome after a devastating fire in 64 AD,  reinforce the empire and gain influence (Victory Points). The most successful player will become the new right hand man (or woman) of Emperor Nero in this design by David Turczi and Nick Shaw: Rome & Roll.
