Rome & Roll:
Gladiators Expansion

3D box mock-up of Rome & Roll: Gladiators

While Rome is being rebuilt, the public demands entertainment! 

Emperor Nero wants you to sponsor games in the Colosseum, where gladiators will engage in thrilling battles for the enjoyment of the crowds. 

It is up to you to build Ludi, where gladiators can be trained in one of the two competing schools, and Arenas, where they can practice. You’ll then assign the gladiators to the Colosseum to fight!

All the excitement has also brought forth new Advisors who offer enticing rewards for those who dare to bribe them!

This expansion for Rome & Roll introduces a new Colosseum sideboard, gladiator dice, new shared advisors, a neutral foreman, and new Blueprints, God’s Favour, and Nero’s Bonus cards. Gladiators also adds a fifth asymmetric character class – the Rudiarius – a retired gladiator who has earned their freedom. A veteran of the Colosseum, the Rudiarius can call in favours with his old masters to get ahead.

Praise For Rome & Roll

The Dice Tower:
Rome & Roll Review

“I’ve never played a roll and write that gives me this level of experience and this depth of strategy”

“I’m giving the solo game of rome & roll an 8, and a seal of approval…i really do feel like there’s something unique going on here”

Shut Up & Sit Down:
Favourite new Roll & Writes

“I’ve got so much appreciation of what this is trying to do as an experiment. It’s trying to condense down one of these giant boxes, going hey look…to what extent can you take away all of those little cubes, all of these things and still retain the essence of what an economic building eurogame can be and the extent of which it succeeds is fabulous…”

About Rome & Roll

64 AD: Rome is burnt to cinders, in need of rebuilding. With the city weakened, distant settlements across the empire refuse to pay taxes and need reminding of the power of Rome. Emperor Nero gathers the most influential members of the city with a clear task: rebuild Rome and recapture the settlements. Each player will utilise their asymmetric abilities to do so and earn wealth along the way in this interactive, heavy, roll and write game.

Players draft from a pool of custom dice to collect resources and special icons that allow them to build buildings – by drawing onto the map of the Seven Hills of Rome, Tetris-style – collect legionnaires, invade rogue settlements, or build the famous network of Roman Roads to the already pacified ones. Trading resources and other abilities might earn them coins, building Shrines will allow them to utilise the Favours of the Gods, and careful interaction with other players will surely lead one of them to victory!
