HI! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is Concordia, a deck-building strategy game set in ancient Rome for for 2-5 players set in Ancient Rome. Here’s the deal. In Concordia, you play a Roman dynasty sending your colonists around the empire to build houses and trade goods, earning favour from the gods along the way. You’re trying to move your colonists around the Roman empire, building your houses in
various cities, and buying and selling goods in order to do that faster and better than
anyone else. Everyone has an identical hand of 7 Personality Cards, and each card does
something different. On your turn, you play one card from your hand, and perform its actions. Up here at the top of the board is a deck of additional Personality Cards that cycles through this row. You can buy these cards throughout the game. Some of them are identical to the ones you start with, and some are similar but slightly more powerful, and some can only be found in this row. The end of the game is triggered when someone’s built all 15 of their houses, or buys the last Personality Card from this row. That player gets the Concordia card, which is worth 7 points. Everyone else gets one more turn, and then you count up the victory points. Well, does it sound interesting?

Concordia

2,000 years ago, the Roman Empire ruled the lands around the Mediterranean Sea. With peace at the borders, harmony inside the provinces, uniform law and a common currency, the economy thrived and gave rise to mighty Roman dynasties as they expanded throughout the numerous cities. Guide one of these dynasties and send colonists to the remote realms of the Empire; develop your trade network; and appease the ancient gods for their favor – all to gain the chance to emerge victorious!  CONCORDIA is a peaceful strategy game of economic development in Roman times for 2 to 5 players age 13 and up. Instead of luck of dice or cards, players must rely on their strategic abilities. Be sure to watch your rivals to determine which goals they are pursuing and where you can outpace them!
