Hansa

Players are merchants of the Hanseatic League. Players take control of the ship and buy and sell goods, establish trading posts, and sail to find new markets. The board is a very simple map of Scandinavia, with arrows from point to point restricting where the boat is able to move. The active player takes control of the boat and must pay to move to each new city where he may either buy, sell, or expand. Players want sets of goods that they can trade for victory points, but also need to expand their market presence to generate revenue.

The End of the Triumvirate (Video Review)

Players take on the role of one of three leaders in ancient Rome: Caesar, Pompeius, or Crassus. Each is seeking to dominate the others by various means. You could try a military victory by creating a massive land block… or perhaps a political victory by being elected as Consul twice… or perhaps you can win by sheer skill by raising your talents… Either way, a maximum of three players can participate in this sophomore release by Lookout games.

At game end, players then score for having majorities of emissaries in two adjacent regions. Players also score for having four or more houses in an uninterrupted sequence along one of the roads on the board.

Caesar and Cleopatra

In Caesar and Cleopatra, two players attempt to use influence and philosophy to sway the Roman officials in the Senate to join their causes.
