Citizens, soldiers, and allies of the Roman Empire unite in Pandemic: Fall of Rome! Raise armies, defend your cities, and forge alliances to ward off relentless barbarian incursions. Can you hold the line against the invading horde and prevent the fall of Rome?
Pandemic: Fall of Rome follows the proud tradition of the award-winning Pandemic, transforming the signature cooperative crisis management gameplay from disease control to the defense of one of the greatest civilizations in history! Instead of diseases, players face off against the migration of aggressive barbarian tribes. They must defend their cities long enough to forge alliances with the invading hordes, and in doing so save the Empire from certain doom.
Decades of economic crisis, aristocratic decadence, and political corruption played their part in the decline of the Roman empire. However, while Roman society crumbled from within, a weakened military left their broad borders open to invasion and conquest from countless Germanic tribes, such as the Anglo-Saxons, Goths, and Vandals, and other formidable foes such as the Huns. Pandemic: Fall of Rome also features a unique play mode for the solo gamer as well as an additional challenge for the seasoned group. Solo players will take on the burden of being the Emperor and command three different roles to try and protect the city from the invading hordes. Players who want to tackle a more difficult game can try the Roma Caput Mundi Challenge by adding more Revolt cards to the deck. They must also respect the law in Rome that Roman legions are not allowed in the city.
