To the Gladiator, the sand of the arena was sacred ground, annointed by the blood of their brothers-in-arms. Thrill to the clash of sword on shield as your heavily armored secutor leaps high to avoid the sweeping net of your opponent`s retiarius. Grimace as the curved blade of your opponent`s sica slashes the chest of your mighty murmillo after their defense fails. All the excitement and spectacle of the ancient Roman arena is faithfully recreated in the tactical-level, combat card game Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis! Featuring 16 unique gladiators donning historically accurate armor rated for protection and placement, Gladiator: Quest for the Rudis places you on the sandy floor of the arena, in the role of a slave gladiator with deadly attacks and deft defenses at your disposal.
