Aqua Romana is a light strategy tile-laying game about digging aquaducts, cutting off your opponents and avoiding being cut off yourself. (11:01)
This week on Board Games with Scott, I’m taking a look at Aqua Romana. This game is in the tile-laying family, so has a similar feel to Caracassonne, Tsuro, or Streetcar/Linie 1. The big difference is that the type of tile you can play is dictated by large pawns that move around the outside of the field, so there’s a combination of strategy and luck in determining what you get next. It was nominated (but did not win) for the Spiel des Jahres award in Germany for 2006.
