Gladiators are warriors bought to fight for your honor. Each has their own past filled with unique experiences, but nearly all will die in the arena.
Life has been tough for these poor souls. Taken from their home and cast into a completely foreign world, the average lifespan of an inexperienced peasant is not high, even by gladiatorial standards.
Once important couriers in the Roman Empire, they have experienced the unforgiving wrath of their masters. Whether caught reading private information or simply for running too slow, the rest of their short lives will now be spent running to survive.
Great athletes with powerful arms, once praised and cheered for, are now discarded by some combination of age or defeat. Sometimes these warriors turn to combat voluntarily in a futile effort to regain some shred of their lost fame.
Troublemakers to the core, some warriors are born to take a hit and keep on fighting. Many of these find themselves in Roman prisons, and from there, sold to the pits, where their true talents are put to the test.
Politicians and actors, not many put money on these kinds of warriors, but they know how to work a crowd. Hypocrites often become the most famous gladiators in all the Empire, if they can survive long enough.
While the people of Rome play and feast, war is constant along the borders of the Empire. With this war comes scores and scores of powerful, trained soldiers who have either disgraced the Empire or fallen to it.

WE DELIVER QUALITY GAMES!
This is an unboxing video of our previous Kickstarter success (!) - Winds of Fortune! Bored Online, Board Offline frequently mentions how the quality of our game improved far beyond the prototype version he had previously experienced!
The art for Legends of the Colosseum is beautiful and brutal!
Artist Marquis Charles returns from his amazing work in Winds of Fortune to create an amazingly detailed world of gladiator warfare!
Risks and challenges
We originally wanted to produce boxes of pewter miniatures to add on to peoples' pledges, but the cost of doing so was very high and the feedback we received told us that people really didn't find this upgrade as valuable as we thought they would. Producing these miniatures would have also added months to fulfillment and that is the last thing we want.
Because of these things, we decided to reorganize the campaign and will no longer be pursuing the production of pewter miniatures at this time. This does not mean that we will never create the extra miniatures, but it will probably be its own project.
One of the biggest risks and challenges comes with communicating overseas. Our last Kickstarter project "Winds of Fortune" was delayed several times because of misunderstandings about our printer's manufacturing process. The good news though, is that we learned a TON from our last experience. When "Winds of Fortune" was finally shipped, the quality of everything was amazing!
We've worked out many of the communication problems we faced last project and can assure you that fulfillment will be a much smoother process with this project.
We also faced many unexpected challenges with overseas shipping in our last campaign and in an effort to assure every backer with the most satisfactory experience possible, we have decided to use a professional distribution service with this project. This means that Legends of the Colosseum will be truly EU friendly and there will be much fewer headaches for everyone involved!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
