The Rome and Roll board game is a heavy roll-and-write game by Dávid Turczi and Nick Shaw in which 1-4 players compete to craft an empire. Draft from a pool of custom dice to collect resources, construct the town, and organize armies. Political alliances, the colonies, and even the Gods all have a part to play. Imperii Gloria!

• Draft the dice to match your needs: roll, draw, and win!
• Play one of seven unique character classes, ranging from merchants to military leaders, with a wealth of different strategies to deploy.
• Take advantage of four possible scoring avenues: construct buildings, trade resources, conquer unruly colonies, and renovate the Roman road network.
• Make political alliances and call on the Gods.
• Raise armies and invade settlements as far afield as Egypt and Spain.
• Build roads and manage unruly provinces.

    Roll & Writes have been around for a while but this is a step up in complexity to your normal fare. The player on turn rolls the dice then you draft them until each has 2 then you take actions one at a time until all dice have been played, each dice face has numerous symbols and there are 3 coloured dice with different sets of faces. Symbols can be resources and actions, resources get added to your board and the action you take with your die may need a specific icon on it (eg building requires an architect or builder symbol whereas conquering needs no symbol), similarly your action may need specific resources. The aim is to score points which come from buildings, conquering territory, building roads or trading, each player also has a Roman noble with his own set of advisers which need bribing with specific resources to provide extra abilities, the buildings you build also have abilities you will want to utilise such as using a God Power. There is a lot to think about but it is a very rewarding game.
