SYLLA

Goal

The year is 79 BC. Sylla, the uncontested master of Rome, is preparing to abdicate. During his reign the Roman senate has rediscovered its glory and many are the pretenders to his supreme power. But Rome is a fickle mistress; the people are hungry and want for bread and circuses. Only the most cunning politicians can take advantage of the situation…

Players take the role of Roman senators in their quest for glory. They use their fortunes and their connections to build great works and resolve the political problems of the Republic. At the end of the game the player with the most prestige wins and takes control of Rome.
