Description

Via Appia, the most famous road of the Roman Empire. is under construction. But roads don't build themselves, so join your fellow players to show off your skills in the quarry, receive the best stones, and build the road connecting Rome to Brindisi.

The player who completes the most valuable road segments, travels first to cities along the way, and earns many sesterces will win Via Appia and immortalize himself in Roman history as a renowned master builder!

Game Play
Rome needs a connection to Brundisium, and you have been tasked with building the Via Appia in order to allow for fast travel between the two cities. To create the road, you?ll need to break off stone tiles in the quarry, then travel to Brundisium, laying out the tiles and creating the path that all will follow in the years ahead. This travel costs sesterces, but will bring crucial victory points and glory from Rome in return.

In Via Appia, players take turns performing one of four actions:
* Income - choose a face-up income card and take sesterces, stones or both. Money is kept behind your screen, stones in front.
* Quarry - push up to 2 of your stones into the quarry, one after the other. You may then exchange each stone that drops off the quarry on the other side for a tile of the same size or smaller or sell it immediately for one sesterce.
* Road Construction - add 1 or 2 tiles to the Via Appia and receive victory points.
* Travel - Move your player piece 1, 2 or 3 tiles forward. This costs 1, 3 or 6 sesterces.

The game ends at the end of the round in which either a player claims a victory point token in Brundisium or the Via Appia is completed. The player with the most victory points wins.
