    Description

    New Rome, Inc. by designer Philip Jelley is a solitaire game of the Roman Empire from 286 to 602 CE. It shows the decline and fall of Rome in the West and the rise of Constantinople, the New Rome in the East. The map shows cities grouped into Dioceses and Prefectures, commanded by a Magister Militum and administered by a Praetorian Prefect.

    The player controls the Roman Empire, appointing statesmen to positions of power, raising taxes, deploying guards, cavalry, legions, and fleets to garrison cities, and fighting wars to hold off the barbarians at the gates.

    Historical statesmen are rated for their skills in military, administrative, religion, and intrigue (or lack thereof), and each has a special ability. For example; Theodosius I has 4 military, 3 administration, 5 religion, 4 intrigue and a special ability against Ostrogothic Wars. This makes him excellent at maintaining the orthodoxy of the Catholic Church, a good general (especially against the Ostrogoths), but average at increasing prestige and collecting taxes and ready to turn to intrigue and violence.

    The four scenarios starting in 286 CE, 375 CE, 455 CE and 518 CE, which may be combined into campaign games. Each turn represented 5-10 years, with 10 turns in each scenario, which take 3-4 hours to play.
