The Games: Blood and Spectacles is a campaign based wargame for any number of players that allows you to take the role of the owner of a Gladiator school in ancient Rome.  You purchase slaves, equip them, and battle them in the arena to grow your Troupes skills, reputation, and wealth.  Gladiators will gain skills, experience, pick-up injuries, fight, and die as you navigate your Troupe through a Gladiatorial season.  

The Games: Blood and Spectacles can be used with any scale Gladiator models and is best played between 2 or more Gladiator Troupes.  It is a hexless game that uses inches as a base measurement.  For combat, it uses a diminishing combat pool system with opposed dice rolls and critical successes that keeps both players constantly making decisions.  In addition, it has a variety of Events from one-on-one combat, beast hunts, executions, chariot racing, and spectacles of gladiatorial combat!  You can choose different levels of Gladiators skills and equip them as the various historical Gladiator styles such as Murmillo, Retarius, Arbelas, and more! 

The Games: Blood and Spectacles can play a series of Games with three Events in about 1 to 2 hours per session.  Campaigns typically last 10 Games per campaign, but you can do shorter or longer campaigns if you wish.  

Can you lead your Troupe to wealth, glory, and fame or will you lead them into ruin?

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
