This was the chant shouted by thousands upon thousands of Romans as they poured into the great arenas (circuses) on over 200 holidays per year to enjoy the epic competitions of Ancient Rome. The largest of these arenas was the famous Circus maximus, erected between the Palatine and Aventine hills. Here, circa 500 BC, spectators were treated to horse-drawn chariot races, in which competitors struggled through 7 laps around a perilous 1200 meter course.Wolfgang Riedesser has recreated these daring races in this game. Since its initial publication in 1989, Ave Caesar has developed a cult following like a few other games. It is well known for its quick and exciting play. In Ave Caesar, you and up to five other charioteers compete in Circus Maximus to determine who is the greatest driver in all of Rome. The racer who most skilfully navigates their chariot over the course of three laps will receive the most Laurels. After several races, whoever has collected the most Laurels wins the tournament, and the adulation of countless thousands. Each race will play out differently - see if you will be the next charioteer to triumphantly shout out, "Ave Caesar!!!" Contents:

|This is a hoot! There's not a lot of depth to it, but you can try to manipulate your cards to the best affect and also do your best to hamper everyone else. It is a game that is almost guaranteed to lead to a lot of repartee around the table. There are two sides to the board, too, which means that there's built in variation.|

|In this chariot racing game, each player has an identical set of numbered cards, the object being to get your chariot around the course first. As every player has an identical card set, the fun of the game comes in knowing how to play your cards to the best advantage. For example, the value of the cards all add up to a certain figure, which only gives you a few extra moves to complete the race. Therefore, if you take all the corners wide you will find that you will be unable to complete the race! Also, each circuit has 'choke points' places where the track is only 1 wide. If you can time your moves to stop on a choke point, the other players will lose a turn as they cannot get passed you and this effectively gains you more spaces.
This has been a classic race game for several years and it is good to see it back in print again.
