A look at what's inside Hollandspiele's Wars of Marcus Aurelius, a solitaire game by designer Robert DeLeskie. Look for this one to appear in a future Gameplay episode!

This might actually be a case where I don't. There's a module for it on Tabletop Simulator.  8)

Had someone reach out to me on BGG to offer a trade...this, Wars of Marcus Aurelius, plus Agricola: Master of Britain, and another game are coming to me in exchange for a few I won't miss/don't play anyway.

Yeah yeah yeah, before smart-arse comments come along, I've never had a Hollandspiele game before, so I'm looking forward to these.

If you had to get something with Agricola in the title this is probably the one to get!

First time saw this game's title I thought it was some kind of Agricola expansion. Thank goodness I was incorrect.

Unless there's wheat involved in here, somehow...?

This is one of those cases where you see the word but your brain just jumps to the conclusion that its a another word that you know...or something.

There is most likely a word that describes this process and no doubt if we wait a little while, Brant will tell us what it is.

Meh, I'll build a few pubs and throw in some log-tossing and they'll all be fine up there.

Sounds like a good plan. Oh, and a fish 'n chip shop as well.
