When visiting the North of Britannia in 122 AD, the Roman Emperor Hadrian Augustus witnessed the aftermath of war between his armies and the savage Picts. In a show of Roman might, he ordered a wall to be built that would separate the Pict tribes from the rest of England. Grand in its design, the wall stretched 80 Roman miles, from coast to coast.
In Hadrian's Wall players take on the role of a Roman General, placed in charge of the construction of a milecastle and bordering wall. Over 6 years (rounds), players will construct their fort and wall, man the defences, and attract civilians by building services and providing entertainment - all while defending the honour of the Roman Empire from the warring Picts. The player that can accumulate the most Renown, Piety, Valour and Discipline, whilst avoiding Disdain, will prove to the Emperor they are the model Roman citizen and be crowned Legatus Legionis!
Hadrian’s Wall stood in service to the Roman Empire for nearly 300 years before its eventual decline. Today, Hadrian’s Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the remains of the forts, towers, and turrets can still be explored.
This is a great Roll n Write!
Perfect for Solo. There is not much player interaction, a bit solitaire-y for multiplayer - but really good just the same!
It is daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, everything just clicks and makes sense.
I love how the theme also flows through the game.
The worker placement aspect is done right - If you love the worker placement mechanism from Paladins then you will surely love this game.
Not much down time and a lot of replayability - with different end game options and worker combinations.
There is a lot to think about, or you can just focus on a few of those things, either way you will have a great time. I only got this game less than a month ago but have played it a fair few times considering it can be a little lengthy!
I love the cross out mechanic and that you have little meeples to depict your builders, civilians, slaves and soldiers. It is played alone or with friends, however it is a really relaxing game as you actually do a lot of the game play alone at the same time so none of this sitting around waiting business, you get in and get it done and then meet back at the end of the round to see if you have let the picts through your wall!
I love this game.
