Great card game like San Juan, but much better, with heavier interaction.

Forget Race for the Galaxy, forget dominion. This is a thinking person’s game. My only complaint is the cartoonish artwork, detracts from what is in my opinion one of the best card games out there. If you get a chance to play this please do, you will not be disappointed.

The interaction of the mechanics is nothing short of brilliant. To play well you must know how your play will affect what is available to your opponent. Ignoring your opponent's strategy is a sure way to lose. The buildings are POWERFUL and each game is a race for that great combo.

I'm truly amazed by how differently each game can play. With so many buildings to take advantage of and two primary ways to score, the roles that are essential switch from game to game. Brilliant card game!

After the first two plays of the Black Box edition: The challenge with this game was where to start explaining it to new players. If you don't have a plan, you can easily lose people before you get to a point where you can start playing. Although the rules say not to, we just started playing. Made a couple of rules discoveries during the first game, but we all really liked it and we played it again right away. I'm ready to play again, anytime, and I want to teach it to the Friday night gamers, because I think they will really dig it.

Advantages of this edition over the I.V edition: FAR superior packaging (box, insert), higher quality cards (card art and card finish), player boards have more information, rules are a little cleaner. This newer Black Box edition also includes the Republic expansion, which was made available separately for the first and I.V editions. There is debate as to whether the card art, which is drastically different, is an improvement over the campier earlier editions. Personally, I think it is. It's clearer for game play, I would argue, and better matches the tone of the game than the earlier cartoony art.

One of the best games I've ever played that uses just cards.

Laminated our GtR of the cartoonish artwork. Looking for a second hand but complete copy of the Black box edition of Glory to Rome as we do enjoy this game and hope to have another spare copy.

I love the gradual escalation allowing for awe inspiring moves late in the game, with plentiful decisions through-out. A great two player option

Wow. Honestly, I avoided this game forever because the art was such a huge turnoff. With the release of the Black Box I was finally convinced to give it a try and it was FANTASTIC. This may be the most well balanced and tight mechanics I've seen in a card game. I very satisfyingly heavy and intense game. The rules seem complicated at first, and the rulebook doesn't help much. Really, this is one that is simply in execution, but very tough to master. Every card has multiple effects, and it's easy to let the wrong card slip on accident. It takes some time to find your footing, but definitely rewards you for smart play.

Overall: It's genius. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the Black Box edition for myself.

excellent game!

BUT I find the new art boring and dry, the old art wasn't awesome either but at least it was easier to tell what cards/resources were in the pool.

What I like:
- A good amount of player interaction with legionary and following with clientele.
- Building up your clientele to be more efficient at actions
- Large variety of building powers make each game different, and it's fun to think about how to combine those powers
- Low player downtime due to following roles

What I don't like:
- Sometimes you can get lucky drawing the perfect combo of crazy buildings, as well as luck in drawing the materials you need to finish those buildings
- It is incredibly hard to get a merchant into the clientele unless you have a special building power or if the person right before you uses the merchant card.
