Colosseum is a fun and undemanding board game with a unique mechanic, we first tried it last night. Each player is a Roman arena impresario, producing spectacles in his/her arena in the hopes of attracting the most spectators. Colosseum combines a "make money to build stuff to make more money to build more stuff" cycle with auctions and dice rolls. Dice rolls usually ring an alarm bell for me, but in this game they are a minor element, and they are not overpowering at all, since the player still has ample choice on where to apply the outcome. If you're looking for a relaxing and unique board game, give Colosseum a try.
