ancient Mediterranean Sea - Rome, Carthage, Egypt, Greece, and Babylon.
to secure your place in the annals of history, you must build the Wonders of the
World and hire legendary heroes. Or, you can build the greatest wonder of them
all - the Pyramids. These are the ways that truly great civilizations are
Players sail the Mediterranean Sea and explore its surrounding lands to find
places to build cities and access to different resources (perfume, oil, gold,
slaves, etc .).
Players build civilization by exploiting these finds. The commodities are used
to build cities, wonders and pyramids, or to establish trade routes to the areas
where the commodities are produced.
Players may also conquer open provinces or even those that are controlled by
their opponents. All of the wealth gained in the game is reinvested in
construction and improvement of "Wonders" and the recruitment of "Heroes".
The first player to build the Pyramids or recruit 4 Heroes or Build 4 Wonders
will be the glorious victor of the greatest civilization in the World!
The road to victory, and everlasting fame, is not always paved with legions and
fortresses. If you trade shrewdly and manage your own empire correctly, you will
be able to get an economic jump on your opponents, and win the game.
Nostrum is a game for the whole family, where anyone can test their skill
and luck at controlling an empire.
