Building upon the phenomenally successful game played by thousands on the World Wide Web, SPQR: The Empire's Darkest Hour delivers a visual and intellectual gaming experience unlike anything seen before. A fascinating 3-D adventure, SPQR challenges you to learn how the Roman Empire works -structurally, mechanically, economically, culturally and politically.
