In Mare Nostrum - Empires, you and up to four friends will attempt to lead your individual empires to greatness and glory.
The game board represents the Mediterranean Basin, separated into Provinces and Sea Zones. Each Province includes Resources, plus Caravan, Market, Temple and City development spaces.
Gather trade resources to build heroes and wonders to expand your economic power. Goods are gathered from caravans and Markets during Phase 1 and traded with other players in Phase 2 each turn. The Trade Leader establishes the structure of Trade each turn.
Heroes and wonders are recruited or built during Phase 3. Mare Nostrum includes a number of such Heroes and Wonders, each providing a specific benefit once recruited. In this phase the Cultural Leader chooses the order in which units are built!
In Phase 4 move your triremes and legions to influence neighboring provinces or attack your enemies. The military leader decides in what order players are able to move and attack!
Gather power and influence in Mare Nostrum and lead your Empire to greatness!
Victory can be achieved in a number of ways:
- Military - Controlling 4 Capital and/or Legendary Cities through expansion and army control,
- Trade - developing and recruiting four Wonders and/or Heroes,
- Culture - Building the Pyramids,
- Leadership - claiming the titles of Trade Leader, Cultural Leader and Military Leader all at once!
