Tabla Lusoria Instructions

This is a very simple two-player game from Roman times. Each player has three markers that are a different color than the other player’s. A sample of the game board and starting positions is shown below.

Object of the Game: Get your three markers in a row. They can be along a straight line or next to each other on the circle.

Player Turns: On your turn, your opponent will draw a history card and read the question. To be eligible to advance a marker, you must correctly answer whether the event occurred during ancient, medieval or modern times. Moves are made in turn and only along a line or curve. Markers move to the next line junction, unless that space is occupied, in which case the player may move to the next space, but only over one marker. The first person to get three markers in a row is the winner.
