PSC Games has launched their Gamefound campaign for their newest board game project. Total War: Rome - The Board Game is going to bring all of the tactical and strategic challenges of the PC game to the tabletop for some Ancient warmongering!

In Total War: Rome - The Board Game, one-to-four players will take on the role of the Roman Empire or one of the other titans of the Ancient era. You could find yourself playing as the Greeks, Carthaginians or Gallo-Germania, knocking on the door of the Empire that spans most of Europe and beyond.

Much like the PC strategy game, the board game will have you fighting for control of territory with your armies, establishing trade routes and alliances, backstabbing your "friends" and expanding and upgrading your access to technology.

Each faction has its own strengths and weaknesses as well as routes to victory. You'll be doing a mix of larger map-based campaigning throughout the game as well as intense dice-based battles where you pit your units (which can be upgraded and tweaked!) against each other.

If you're interested in learning more about the rules then you can download their Main Rulebook, BattlePlay Rules & Solo Rulebook for yourself to learn more. A twenty-eight-page main rulebook for a game of this scale and scope isn't too bad at all!

The campaign has already been funded and that means access to loads of additional bits and pieces for you to dive into. You can throw in eight new factions to play as for example!

The Alexander Expansion moves things a little further East (much like the digital expansion did for the game) and you also have ways to add in upgraded BattlePlay components and in-fighting amongst the forces of Rome. Why not battle for control of the Empire that you've fought so hard to craft?

Backing now via Gamefound also gets you access to other options...

So, it might be a good idea to dive in here and consider picking up the game now if you were already sold on the concept. It seems to be doing a decent job of getting across the feel of the digital game but on the tabletop. Plus, a lot of folks love their big strategic board games with lots of moving pieces. At only 150 minutes per game it also seems like it might not dominate your weekend either as Twilight Imperium does!
