The Games: Blood and Spectacle


Welcome to The Games: Blood and Spectacle.

In these pages you will find a game that allows you to play out the infamous blood contests between slave warriors of the Roman era. You will be a Lanista, the slave master, owner, and business man who dealt in blood and spectacle for profit. Your management and commands will lead your Gladiator troupe to glory, honor, and immortality; or death and poverty. Will you beg for mercy, or triumph for the crowds?

Scale
The rules were created with 28mm figurines in mind. However, it can easily be scaled up or down by simply modifying some of the distances involved.

Basing
The Games: Blood and Spectacle does not require any particular basing guidelines for miniatures. The base only acts to ensure the models do not fall over. However unusually large bases may reduce the visual impact of the Gladiator duels.
