Setting: Ancient Roman

Group Description

This group contains games set in the Ancient Roman milieu, taking place in the vicinity of modern-day Italy and the republic and empire it controlled from the 8th century B.C. to 476 A.D. The actual size of the empire varies depending on the time period, from its roots as a dominating political force around the city of Rome to its vast empire stretching across Europe outwards to Hispania, Britannia and Syria.

Games included in this group can include, for instance, city-building simulations, strategic battles overseeing Roman legions, one-on-one gladiator fights, chariot races, and specific historical battles that happened in relation to the Roman Empire (e.g. against Carthage in the Punic Wars.)

For the purposes of this group, the "Eastern Roman Empire", based in Constantinople, is not included after 476 A.D., being more commonly referred to as the Byzantine Empire.
