The year is 70 A.D. Pompeii, sitting at the foot of Vesuvius, is at the high point in its development. People come to the city from far and wide to try and make their luck in the city. So far nobody has dreamed of the danger that will bury all of their dreams under mountains of ash not ten years later. Who will survive the eruption of Vesuvius unscathed?
Come to beautiful Pompeii with this exciting game. You will use cards to attract your Roman friends and relatives to the town. But hidden in the deck is the dreaded Vesuvius card. Once this card is drawn, the volcano will erupt, raining fire onto the unsuspecting city. Now you must struggle to escape the doomed city, rushing to avoid the constant streams of lava that threaten to engulf your people. Will you be able to save them all? The player with the most survivors wins.
