About

It is the year 193 AD. The Roman Empire is not as great as it once was. Enemies are crossing the borders while famine and political intrigues are tearing the empire apart from within. The previous emperor was killed by his Praetorian bodyguard and has left a vacuum that the powerful families in Rome are trying to fill. Are you ready to don the purple yourself and be the new emperor? If you fail, the other families are ready to take over at a moment's notice. While they wait for your doom, they will backstab and undermine you as much as they can. However you all have to work together as the fall of the Roman Empire is closing in. 

Donning the Purple is an asymmetrical king of the hill game with a bit of worker placement. Each player leads a powerful family in ancient Rome, trying to get the most victory points during 4 rounds. If your family member becomes the emperor and manages to hold the position he can earn lots of points. However he will also become the target of the other players, as they will try to dethrone him and become the new emperor themselves.



Votes & Virtue is an expansion to Donning the purple and includes lots of new content that will create new headaches to the ruling emperor.

  • A new role, called the General, with a unique player mat. If he becomes too popular among the legions they will proclaim him as the new emperor.
  • A 4th player that starts the game as the General.
  • A senate phase. Where all players uses their senators to vote over important things that affect the empire.
  • An extra player mat for the heir with a unique action.
  • Lots of new cards

  All stretch goals are for the Votes and Virtue expansion.

The game board is the main attraction of Donning the purple. Every palm tree, monument and coastline was carefully illustrated by the amazing cartographer Daniël Hasenbos. Daniel has a great eye for detail and have by intense research added historically correct buildings and monuments throughout the Roman Empire. The map is divided into 4 regions. Each region contains 6 provinces.

The base game is 100% ready for print. The game design for the expansion is complete and the art is 95% ready. It has been blind playtested and adjusted so that every playthrough and situation is properly balanced. The reason for us using Kickstarter is that we need funds to be able to print and ship the games to you!  

The more people that pledge for copies, the cheaper they are to produce. So if we pass the funding goal we can start to reach stretch goals. That means we can add more cool things to the expansion with no extra costs for you! 

The graphical design of the unlocked goals may change in the complete version.    


If you chose this pledge, you can send us a picture of your face*. Then our artist will draw your face and put it in the artwork of one of the event cards or player mats. We have the rights to alter your face so it will fit the theme of the game and to make sure that we have enough diversity in the artwork. That means we can do everything from removing your beard to change your sex or skin color. If we decide to change anything about your appearance we do not need to explain why. 

*We will give you a deadline and instructions on how to take the picture. You need to send the picture within the deadline we give you. If not, we cannot guarantee that you will be in the game.

Risks and challenges

The base game is 100% ready for print. The game design for the expansion is complete and the art is 95% ready. It has been blind playtested and adjusted so that every playthrough and situation is properly balanced.

-----

There are few risks involved in our project. Donning the Purple (base game) is ready to print. The game design for the expansion is complete and the art is 95% ready.

We will produce the new print run and expansion with same manufacturer as last time. We have been working with our manufacturer for the past year to ensure that you will receive the same high quality components for the expansion. We are confident that you will be delighted with the game and are ready to proceed with production as soon as the Kickstarter ends.

The biggest risks to this project are the things beyond our control: Shipping delays and any fluctuation in exchange rates.

We have tried to adopt a 'worst case' scenario in terms of the estimated delivery times in case anything happens. All our previous project have so far been delivered months before the estimated dates. That does not mean this one will but If it does, we can take it as a bonus.
