Description of Annals of Rome

This early precursor to Impression's superb Caesar series is a complex strategy/war game that, unlike its contemporaries, emphasizes economic and personnel aspects as much as military ones. Contend with internal affairs, including loyalty of legions, while you wage wars with neighboring empires. Scripted events based on real historical trends also add to the fun.

Definitely a forgotten classic that was well ahead of its time. Highly recommended!

Personal Software Services (PSS), I love you, I love this game, I love ALL your games, will you marry me? XXX
Seriously though, one of my all time faves, the random time scale between turns added a huge amount of variation to each game. Your nice stable empire enters a dreaded one year time period, barbarians invade, combat is not settled leading to uncontrolled provinces, Generals then revolt. Result, Barbarians, Civil War and a genuinely challenging game.

Surprisingly good, even in 2014. To make play easier, print out a screenshot of the map with the country letter codes for ease of use when working on other screens.
