Set in ancient Rome, Trajan is a development game in which players try to increase their influence and power in various areas of Roman life such as political influence, trading, military dominion and other important parts of Roman culture.

The central mechanism of the game uses a system similar to that in Mancala or pit-and-pebbles games. In Trajan, a player has six possible actions: building, trading, taking tiles from the forum, using the military, influencing the Senate, and placing Trajan tiles on his tableau.

At the start of the game, each player has two differently colored pieces in each of the six sections (bowls) of his tableau. On a turn, the player picks up all the pieces in one bowl and distributes them one-by-one in bowls in a clockwise order. Wherever the final piece is placed, the player takes the action associated with that bowl; in addition, if the colored pieces in that bowl match the colors shown on a Trajan tile next to the bowl (with tiles being placed at the start of the game and through later actions), then the player takes the additional action shown on that tile.

What are you trying to do with these actions? Acquire victory points (VPs) in whatever ways are available to you – and since this is a Feld design, you try to avoid being punished, too. At the Forum you try to anticipate the demands of the public so that you can supply them what they want and not suffer a penalty. In the Senate you acquire influence which translates into votes on VP-related laws, ideally snagging a law that fits your long-term plans. With the military, you take control of regions in Europe, earning more points for those regions far from Rome.

All game components are language neutral, and the playing time is 30 minutes per player.

We have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return. The exception is on any preordered items, or sealed TCG product which are not refundable or returnable. Due to the way we purchase preorders immediately from our distribution, we cannot accept returns, exchanges, or process refunds on presale items, sale items, or gift cards.

Shipping Policy

All orders are subject to begin shipping between 7-10 business days of their official release date. This applies especially to preorders, but not excluding other purchases. Although we work very hard to ship out all orders as quickly as possible, we are a small shipping operation and we ship out orders in the order they were purchased. When we ship out preorders, that means a large quantity of orders we must ship out, which takes more than one day. We provide some of the best pricing available on the market to accommodate for potential undesired shipping time. Thank you for understanding your order will ship out in 7-10 business days.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

To start a return, you can contact us at store@gamegridslc.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

You can always contact us for any return question at store@gamegridslc.com.
