This second game in the Shields & Swords Ancients series recreates ten battles spanning nearly three hundred years of Roman history. As was the case with the first game, With It Or On It (2019), The Grass Crown is a fresh, innovative taken on familiar material. The primary unit of maneuver is a "Wing" which itself consists of ten or so individual counters. [Forum]
Rome had been a Republic for about 500 years. But that was soon to change. Senators like Cato and Cicero were declining, while Caesar, Crassus, and Pompey were rising. They had amassed so much economic, political, and military power that the three of them ruled Rome. In this game you try to become the first emperor of Rome. Will history repeat itself? Or will the name of Caesar become a minor footnote in history? You decide. 1st Triumvirant is a 3 player card driven political wargame. A unique design feature is if none of the 3 players win then the game itself wins and Rome remains a Republic.
