Come and learn all about Rome - City Of  Marble Mike will be on hand to demo and lead game play.  It's a free event and it'll be fun.  Come play the game.

Rome - City Of  Marble
R&R Games
It is the reign of Augustus Caesar and players represent the powerful Patrician families of Rome. As leading citizens of the great city, they influence and direct the construction of this ever expanding metropolis. Through shrewd placement of Neighborhood tiles, the players will commission the construction of the Civic Buildings so important to daily life in ancient Rome: Temples for worship; Baths for health and camaraderie; Theaters for philosophy and the arts; Arenas for entertainment and diversion. By building these, players will gain and be able to exercise Imperium, a measure of their real power in Roman society.
The players take two actions per turn, pausing after each to resolve any completed Construction Sites before proceeding to the next. As Civic Buildings are constructed, influential players score points representing their success. 
The final round is triggered when three of the four stacks of Neighborhood tiles are exhausted at the end of a players turn. Each player in order, including the player who triggered the final round, performs one last action. At the end of the game, players score extra points for Bridges, Aqueducts, Fountains and Coins. Bonus points are awarded for Imperium and whoever has the most points secures the prestigious title of Architect of Rome!
