Rome Is Beautiful – A Glory To Rome Unboxing
You won’t often find many unboxing posts around Dice Hate Me, but every now and then a game comes along that warrants a little more attention to component detail. Glory to Rome is definitely one of those games. Since most of us have waited a cesar’s lifespan to get the game, and because I’ve received several questions about the game’s components, I now present a pictorial overview of the innards of one unbelievably beautiful black box.
As you can see, the rules are clean, beautiful and magnificently displayed. Easy-to-follow full-page diagrams make learning the game much easier.
The appendix insert with the Geek expansion.
There's a fancy ribbon pulltab that makes lifting the tableaus to get to the cards a cinch. It also prevents tableau edge chipping from fingernails while trying to get them out of the box.
The underside of the tableaus. They are super-thick cardstock.
The cards in their well-made insert. There's a little factory dust, but nothing excessive.
The card wrappers have a pulltab, as well. We love when publishers do this and requested it for our production of Carnival.
Yep, they're pretty.
A close-up of the fairly unique linen embossing. The card stock is superb and there is no noticeable humidity warping.
A few of the cards from the Plato3000 card game that backers receive as a bonus. The art and design on this is fantastic!
