I’m not a fan of racing in general but now Chariot Racing in ancient Rome, that’s something that sounds cool. And a cool game of Ave Caesar hit the table thyis past week with the gang and it was great fun.
Using numbered cards from a shuffled deck, we moved our chariots around the track trying to take the least amout of spaces and optimize speed. Play your cards right and you can block opponents at bottlenecks and which really raised the tension or frustration. As we raced around the track for three laps, we had to make sure we stopped to pay tribute and shout ‘Hail Caesar’ before crossing the finish line. A good race and waddya know, I led from start to finish! Comments from our group felt that the tracks weren’t as good as in an earlier published edition.
A light, fun racing game designed by Wolfgang Reidesser and re-published by Asmodee Editions.
