Cover of Concordia: a woman pays a merchant in a busy marketplaceConcordia

This is a very simple game: each turn you play a card. That's it. Of course, it's what the cards let you do that makes the game. Each player starts with the same set of cards and can buy more cards including cards that are not in the starting sets. It's the Consul and Senator cards that let you do this.

As the card names suggest, the game is set in ancient Rome the two sides of the board let you play in Italy or across the whole Roman Empire (set around the Mediterranean Sea, of course). Using their cards, players move their colonists from city to city, build houses and produce, buy and sell goods. Crucially, one card lets them pick all their cards back up again!

At the end of the game, players will score for their money, goods and colonists and for cities and provinces they occupy, according to the types of cards they hold. Thus players are collecting cards not just for the action they provide, but also for the boost to their score and to help collect the things they will score for. It's the relationship between these different uses of the cards that gives players something to think about.

Concordia is another cracking game from designer Mac Gerdts, though without his trademark roundel mechanism this time. I have the Salsa and Solitaria expansions plus the 8-card Forums mini-expansion.

For 2-5 players, aged 10+, playing time 100 minutes: 40.00 (33.33 tax free outside the UK)

Concordia: Britannia/Germania package - board and rulesConcordia: Britannia/Germania

As you'd expect, it's a double-sided board with two different Roman provinces to play Concordia on.

In Britannia, players start in the south and expand north, but the map has fewer cities than in the standard game, which makes things much tighter. However, there are no rules changes.

The Germania map is all land so 'sea' colonists move along the rivers. In addition, the Roman castles on the map contain bonus tokens for players to acquire.

For 2-5 players (with base game), aged 12+, playing time 100 minutes: 12.00 (10.00 outside the UK)

Cover of Concordia: Salsa, showing a man in a toga buying a cone of salt with salt being harvested in the backgroundConcordia: Salsa

In this case, "salsa" is "salted" in Latin and this expansion adds salt to the game as a wild resource, something I find really useful, and can be used with any of the Concordia maps. However, the bulk of the expansion is two new maps (hence the large box): Byzantium, centred on Asia Minor with the Balkans and eastern Mediterranean, and Hispania, focused on Spain and the western Mediterranean. The expansion also adds 'Forum' cards that give players bonuses and abilities and, again, can be used with any map.

For 2-5 players (with base game), aged 12+, playing time 90 minutes: 27.00 (22.50 outside the UK)

Cover of Concordia: Solitaria, showing a bearded, turbanned merchant at his tableConcordia: Solitaria

As the name suggests, this expansion is a solitaire option for Concordia, providing a tricky opponent, Contrarius, to match yourself against. Contrarius can also be taken on by a team of two.

Essentially this is a replacement set of cards that provide an action for Contrarius as well the player. On top of this, special dice are used to provide some variety in Contrarius's actions. A great addition to the game.

For 1-2 players (with base game), aged 14+, playing time 30-60 minutes: 18.00 (15.00 outside the UK)
