Our group used to play it quite a bit, but after three plays, I've never had any interest in playing it again. I can't say just why, but the game just never stuck with me.

$60. NIS.

Not the thriftiest of prices, but like a lot of people this has been a grail of mine for a while. So I've been looking for a reasonably priced version of it online periodically, and a few months ago I found an eBay posting for the game below market value. Only problem was the buyer had selected "local pick up only" as the shipping method, and they lived across the country from me. I contacted the buyer asking if they'd mail the item, and they said they'd prefer not to. Figuring that not many people would bid on this game without a delivery option, I called in a favour or two, and convinced a friend of mine who lives an hour away from the seller to pick it up for me.

This friend is visiting me for the week and brought it with him. Just got it. New in box--everything is still sealed. I'm so excited to finally get this to the table!

I finally got a chance to play this one after having been taught it twice prior. I really enjoyed it but want to play much more of it to get a good feel for it. Even after a single play, it's pretty easy to get a sense of why it is so very well regarded.

Ian with several thousand plays under his belt kicked my butt handily.

I already put Innovation on this list, but this is what I consider Carl Chudyks best game. Uchronia and Mottainai are some games based on Glory to Rome but the latter is still the best for me because the combo's you can pull of are much stronger. It can get a little crazy and turn the game into an almost unwinnable situation, but because the combinations are so strong you just might be able to turn the tide.

I have to say it is not the easiest game to teach to new players. It might be hard to get your head around how all the actions work. But once you know what to do it is a beautiful game.

Plays as of April 5, 2017: 19

GtR was my introduction to Carl Chudyk, the master of swingy card games, as well as to multi-use cards. I was fortunate enough to buy this several years ago for $20, and I have definitely gotten my money's worth out of my copy - and then some. I usually play the Republic version since it's a little more forgiving for newer players. I also own and play Uchronia and Mottainai, but neither of those matches the brilliance of the original, even with as swingy and uncontrolled as it is at times.

Quote:
1) Why you like the listed game

A friend found a copy of the Black Box edition for a reasonable price and our group has really taken to it. It's not overly long, has a lot of different strategies to win and ways to play.

Quote:
2) The game you want to acquire with the gift certificate and why

Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure I love deckbuilders and this seems like a fun one.
or
Vast: The Crystal Caverns This seems like a really fun game with lots of different ways to play.
(I haven't actually played either of them.)
Quote:
3) Your favorite place to get games

I'm Board in Middleton, WI.
It's my FLGS for a reason. Great people, great place to play and they know the culture.

Quote:
4) The last new-to-you game you played and what you thought of it

Probably AGES. It was designed by a fellow Star Realms player. It's a more drawn out deckbuilder with some interesting mechanics (I still owe him a review on the game).

Quote:
5) Anything else you would like to add

I got divorced (officially) earlier this week. Games and sites like this help me get through it all. Thanks everyone.

Description: Up for trade is Glory to Rome, the acclaimed role-selection card game from designer Carl Chudyk. It's got cards that do lots of stuff!

Edition: Black Box Edition!

Condition: A very few cards exhibit the tiniest amount of whitening along part of one edge. The rulebook is used, exhibits wear, and has whitening. There is a tiny bit of whitening on one corner of the top portion of the box. The top portion of the box also exhibits a tiny amount of bubbling on top, which is a common production issue with this edition. I mention it here in the interest of full disclosure for an item of this value, but it's not very noticeable on this particular copy.

NOT FOR THE GAME.

Just the French Version of the card pictured. La Senateur, Role Au Choix. This is not even the proper image. My card is in French, for the Filosofia edition...
