A long, long time ago. Coming Monday
Antiquity arrived earlier this week, so I'm bringing it Monday. This is another big game by Splotter, who did Indonesia and the ever-popular Broads & Oats. [Item #46]
Antiquity has players building up their cities and gathering resources from the countryside. Each city map (not shown) has a Princes of Florence like layout -- you have to fit your buildings into a grid. Some buildings (like fountains) are single squares. Other buildings are multiple squares of various shapes. The Cathedral is, of course, a cross. And how do you win? Well, that depends on your patron Saint (chosen when you build the cathedral). Some want you to be fruitful, multiply, and get a population of 20. Others want you to explore the world, build buidings, or gather relics. And they help you ... each Saint provides a different blessing. And Santa Maria ... she gives you all the benefits of other saints, but requires two victory conditions.
Another medium-long, low luck game from Splotter.
What else will be there? That depends on you! I suspect a few games of BattleLore may break out ...
