Hello friends,

you can find here the pictures of the 15mm game we organised for the RomaGioca convention.

We re-built a significant portion of the walls close to porta S. Paolo, and won the prize for best table!

846 d.c – not something I am familiar with. What is that in Ad Urbem Condita? Which any good Latin speaker should know.

Season's greetings. Great looking game. Well done.

Can you please tell me who produced the aquaducts? They look great and certainly set the scene.

Very nice table and a brilliant touch of using a rarely gamed period and topic.

Thanks! sorry, that would be 846 a.c. (I used the italian Dopo Cristo). Basically, saracens raided the outskirts of Rome, not being able to overcome the walls: but St. Peter and St. Paul churches were otuside the walls at the time, so the sarracens got a lot of precious stuff… I'll ask for the aquaducts, but I am not sure the owner will remember..

A great looking game on a beautiful table!
