Over the centuries, the empires of the Mediterranean seas have invested in expanding their territory, mostly peacefully by merchants, not soldiers. The rich and fertile regions around the Mediterranean offered immense opportunities to build commercial powers. But the time will come when the greed for more power and wealth can only be stopped by another powerful empire on the borders of yours with ambitions and plans of its own. Players will have to decide whether to send armies or diplomats to regions far from their capitol to declare war or keep the peace. The History of the Ancient Seas game series is the ultimate journey through these exciting times. Build new fleets in your city to explore unknown lands, conquer islands and build your own great empire.

In Mare Nostrum, the third and final part of the "History of the Ancient Seas" game series, you will lead one of the great empires: The Roman Empire, the mighty sailors of Carthage, the Greek city-states, Egypt or Persia. Your goal is to become the first empire in the Mediterranean. To achieve this, you must build armies and fleets to increase your military power, expand trade routes, conquer islands and provinces, develop your military skills, economic efficiency and culture, while always keeping an eye on the wealth, happiness and stability of your people. The game is played in highly interactive micro-pulses. The core of the game system is the action cycle: Players choose one of eight possible actions. Actions chosen by one player cannot be chosen later by the next player. The number of possible actions is limited in each round.

Mare Nostrum is a game for five players. What is new in this chapter of the game series is that each power has unique properties that players must use wisely to gain an advantage over their opponents. Which god will help his people the most in the struggle for dominance of the Mediterranean seas?
