KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN IN OCTOBER 2020
A board game for 1-4 players
Designer Harry-Pekka Kuusela
Medicine in Imperial Rome is an art of celebrated advances, an art of showmanship and bitter rivalry between practitioners all with their own entourages. There is one doctor above all others: Galenus. The writings of this second century Greco-Roman would be the epitome of medicine for one thousand years to come.
The players in this game enter this arena as doctors starting out by studying, treating patients, accumulating reputation and competing against each other in showy demonstrations. The goal of the game is to be the best young doctor, primus inter pares, by collecting the most favor in the eyes of Galenus over five rounds and thus becoming his friend and student.
Over everything the players do he looms, Galenus the prince of medicine, and he will crush all who dare challenge him.
