Z-Man Games are coming out with a new Pandemic variant, one which trades the familiar struggle against a spreading disease to set you against invading tribes. Work together to save the empire in Pandemic: Fall of Rome.

"At the height of its power, the Roman Empire held more than two million square miles of territory containing over a hundred million people. Throughout the centuries of its existence, the Empire brought major advancements in engineering, architecture, science, art, and literature.

By the beginning of the 5th Century, decades of political corruption, economic crisis, and an overburdened military had exacted a severe toll on the stability of the Empire. This paved the way for severe incursions from aggressive barbarian tribes, leading to a decline from which Rome would not recover. Now citizens, soldiers, and allies of Rome must unite to protect the Empire."

In this new iteration of the classic cooperative game, players work together, not to find illnesses for diseases, but to establish alliances with the various Germanic tribes seeking to take advantage of Rome's fracturing society.

To defend against these rampaging tribes, players must recruit armies of Roman legionaries to them and take the fight to them. If left unchecked, these tribes could spread to threaten Rome itself.

This new approach to the familiar game is certainly an interesting one. While the threat of disease is one that we may find more compelling and threatening as a modern audience, the battles of Fall of Rome takes us through the real-life fall of a once-mighty civilization.

This game's more combative focus also provides a new direction for the game and may help bring onboard those players who have previously preferred war simulation games in the same vein as Risk.
