A bloody trick-taking game of gladiatorial combat, in which the trump suit can change mid-trick!

Gorus Maximus can be played with 1-8 players, everyone for themselves or in teams. For brave contenders aged 8 and up, taking 30-45 minutes.

Dispatch your strongest gladiators and most ferocious beasts to excite the blood-thirsty masses and earn their support! Players compete to collect gladiators with positive crowd favor and avoid those with negative favor.  The first player to earn 3 crowd support has won the support of the masses and earns the title: Champion of Gorus Maximus!
