Additional Rules for Colosseum

Extra Rules for the Colosseum

Hey there! I want to tell you about some additional rules for the Colosseum that you might find interesting.

First off, did you know that the Colosseum is one of the most famous ancient amphitheaters in the world? It’s a huge and imposing structure that was used for all sorts of events, like gladiator fights and mock sea battles. It’s pretty remarkable!

Rule number one: no weapons allowed!

Now, I know it might seem a little obvious, but it’s important to remember that no weapons are allowed inside the Colosseum. The gladiators had their own weapons, of course, but the spectators were strictly forbidden from bringing in any weapons. Can you imagine the chaos if everyone was armed?

Rule number two: the seating arrangement

Here’s an interesting fact about the Colosseum: back in the day, the seating was divided according to social status. The higher classes had better seating closer to the arena, while the lower classes had to sit further away. It’s kind of crazy to think about how different it was back then.

Rule number three: no flash photography

Flash photography wasn’t a thing in ancient Rome, but if it was, it would definitely not be allowed in the Colosseum! The use of flash would not only distract the gladiators and the audience, but it could also damage the ancient structure. So, if you’re planning to take some pictures, be sure to turn off your flash!

Well, there you have it! Some additional rules to keep in mind when visiting the Colosseum. I hope you found them interesting. Have a great time exploring this incredible piece of history!

When I play the game, I get to create a lot of different events. And the more events I create, the more spectators I attract. It’s like a chain reaction!

Sometimes, I like to bring back events that I’ve already done before. It’s fun to do them again and see how the audience reacts. When I repeat an event, I make sure to turn over the old Event Program so everyone knows what I’m producing. And the best part is, those old events still count for extra spectators!

But there are also some Event Programs that I haven’t used yet. I set them aside for now, and they don’t add any extra spectators until I decide to produce them.

Let me give you an example. If I’m on my third event, I turn over two “old” Event Programs, and that gives me an extra 10 spectators! It’s pretty cool!

Event Assets: Your Guide to What You Need

Hey there! I want to chat with you about event assets. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what they are – I’ll break it down for you.

So, when you’re organizing an event, there are some things you need to make sure it runs smoothly. These things are called event assets, and they’re pretty important. Let’s dive in and explore what they are.

The standard Event Asset list is as follows:

Let me tell you about a special type of token called Special Event Asset Tokens. These tokens come in three different types, and each one has its own unique benefits. If you’re interested in adding something exciting to your collection, pay attention!

Jokers X4

When you play a game, a Joker can be a helpful asset. It’s like a wildcard that can stand in for any regular token you need. So when an event happens, you get to choose which token the Joker represents.

But, here’s a important thing to remember: the Joker doesn’t actually count towards the total number of tokens you have. So even if you use a Joker, it won’t affect whether or not you earn a Star Performer Award.

So, think of the Joker as a versatile tool that you can use strategically to your advantage. It gives you flexibility and a bit of surprise in your gameplay.


Emperor X4

When you get an Emperor Asset Token, it’s instantly swapped with an Emperor Medal. If there aren’t any Emperor Medals left, you lose the Asset Token.

Extra Moves X4

When you acquire an Extra Moves Token, you’re given an extra opportunity to make a move. It’s like a secret power that can help you win the game.

Hey there! Let me tell you about the Special Event Token and how you can use it in the game.

With this token, you have two options:

  • You can make 2 investments instead of just 1 during the investment phase. It’s important to note that you still need to pay for both investments, and you can invest in the same thing twice in one turn.
  • You can exchange the token for an Emperor Medal whenever you want. This can be really useful, especially towards the end of the game.

Star Performer Awards

Did you know that the best producers always attract the top performers? In our game, we have different types of assets that include living performers, and they are called Star Performers. These assets include Gladiators, Priests, Comedians, Musicians, Lions, Horses, and Ships with their live crews.

Did you know that in this game, you can win the prestigious Star Performer Award? It’s an exciting achievement that goes to the first player who collects 3 or more matching Event Asset Tokens from these talented performers. Imagine being recognized as the best in a particular asset type!

But here’s the catch: you have to make sure you have more assets of that type than any of your competitors. It’s not just about collecting the tokens; you need to prove that you’re truly the star of the show.

  1. If I collect more of a specific asset than the player who currently has the award, I become the new recipient. The star symbol is then passed on to me, signifying that I have the most tokens of that type.
  2. On the other hand, if the player currently holding the award has less than three tokens of that type, and another player has three or more tokens of the same type, then the award is transferred to the player with the most tokens. However, if there’s a tie between multiple players, none of them receive the star.

Hey there! Did you know that if I have a Star Performer Award and I use that star’s asset type in an event, I can attract 4 extra spectators? Pretty cool, right? Let me break it down for you. If I have 3 Star Performers and I use assets from 2 of those stars, I can add a whopping 8 spectators to my event (that’s 4 + 4)!

Now, here’s when things get interesting. Star Performer Awards can be given out at the start of the game. If, after we distribute Asset Tokens, some players end up with 3 or more tokens of the same kind and no one else has the same number, those lucky players get a Star Performer Award. It’s like getting a gold star for being extra special!

When I receive a Star Performer Award, I place it in front of me alongside my associated Asset Tokens, so that everyone else can see just how awesome I am. It’s all about sharing the spotlight, you know?

Now, let’s talk about Emperor Medals.

We collect Emperor Medals in a pretty simple way. Here’s how it works:

When I play this board game, there’s a special rule that I have to remember. It’s called the Emperor Medal, and it’s pretty cool. The Emperor Medal is like a special prize that you can win if you do something specific. In this case, you have to roll the dice and land on one of the resting areas. But here’s the tricky part: if you want to get the Emperor Medal, you have to use the result of both dice to move just one Noble. If you move more than one Noble with the dice roll, you don’t get the Medal, even if you end up on a resting area. So it’s a challenge, but it’s also a lot of fun to try and win that special prize. I always get excited when I roll the dice and hope I can get the Emperor Medal. It’s like a little bonus that makes the game even more interesting!

When you collect a Special Event Token (called Emperor and Additional Actions), you can trade it in for an Emperor Medal. You can keep collecting Emperor Medals for as long as they’re available.

Note: If you use an Emperor Medal to move a Noble onto a resting area, you won’t receive another Emperor Medal. The only time you can collect an Emperor Medal is when you move Nobles using a dice roll.

If you play 1 Emperor Medal, you can choose one and only one of the following:

  • When I produce an event, I can add 3 spectators to it.
  • After I move the Nobles using the dice roll, I can move any Noble 1, 2 or 3 squares forward or backward.
  • I receive 6 coins.

If I play 2 Emperor Medals, I can make a second investment during the investment phase instead of performing the usual actions described above.

I can play as many Emperor Medals as I want. For example, I can play multiple Emperor Medals in a row to move a Noble multiple times or to move a second Noble.

Once I earn Emperor Medals, I can use them immediately or save them for later use.
