Why It's On The List

  • Knizia at his dice-y best... it's an excuse to make gladiator movie jokes & beat on your friends for fun & profit.

Tips & Tricks:

    • It's OK to make a crazed run at a dangerous animal on your turn - esp. if you're down to your last 1-2 gladiators in a group. If you win, you get the big "kill". If you lose, the points don't go to another player.


    • There are people who've run computer simulations to figure out the best possible teams for the game - ignore those people. They suck the fun out of everything.
    • Here's what I wrote about CotG for my 2010 Top 100 list.
