After the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC, his adopted son Gaius Octavius ??decided to return to Rome. Through his political ambitions, he had built up a good reputation and in 27 BC he received the right to speak first in the Senate. Now, carrying the title of Augustus, he has been proclaimed Roman Emperor, with that Empire divided into provinces. In Augustus, the players represent Augustus in the provinces and must build the provinces economically and politically, fulfilling objective cards in order to receive credit for doing this. Players draw mobilization tokens from a bag, and if these tokens are present on their objective cards, they can place a legion on a corresponding field shown on one of their target cards. Fill all of these fields with legions, and the objective card is complete, with the player receiving a bonus and drawing a new objective card. Whoever first completes seven objective cards becomes Consul at the side of Emperor Augustus, dispatching all other players to farthest provinces in the Empire where they must live on berries and drink river water.
