Et tu Brutus? …

After a four-year absence, Republic of Rome returns to WBC in triumph. Or at least attempts to if the faithful can still be found …

"He already has 16 influence, so can we really afford to send him out there with a “triumph sized” army?"

“But Rome is in peril and he’s the best general we’ve got! How can we NOT!?"

I’d like to encourage new players to join us this year, and previous players to return for another try. While RoR does take some learning, it’s the type of game where a new (or rusty) player can quite happily spend the first turn or two getting the hang of the mechanics with little damage to the enjoyability of the game, or to his ultimate chances of success.

And beyond that it\s a wonderfully immersive gaming experience, a great social game and a heck of a lot of fun to play.

See you on the senate floor!

This year we will be using the Valley Games version, with the version 1.04 living rules ( The AH version may be used only if all players agree.

Optional rules 2.01 (Pontifex Maximus) and 2.04 (Legionary Disbandment and Recall) will be used.

Rule 1.04.3 (Public Agreements) will not be enforced (in this GM’s opinion it often causes more problems than it solves. Caveat emptor!)

All games will be played with the Middle Republic scenario unless all players at the table agree to use the early or late Republic in its place.

While the game can win (i.e. Rome falls) in the preliminary rounds, WBC requires that each tournament have a winner. If Rome falls in the Final then the game will be decided by total faction influence at the game end. If two factions are tied then whichever player had the higher ranking method of advancement to the Final will win.

Tie breakers for advancement to the Final:

1. Single win, march on Rome

2. Single win, consul for Life

3. Single win, most influence in first heat entered

4. Single win, most influence

5. Single win, average of place in all heats entered

6. Runner-up, highest percentage of the winner’s influence

7. Runner-up, average place in all heats entered
