The Downfall of Pompeii Board Game


Drake says: "In The Downfall Of Pompeii, players populate the city with their own citizens and their relatives. Then, players take turns drawing lava tiles and placing them in the various parts of the city, while moving their citizens safely through the city gates. The player with the most surviving citizens wins."


John says: "A quick, light game that's easy to learn with theme-appropriate components (including the VOLCANO!). The Downfall of Pompeii is excellent for families and is full of fun!"


Klaus-Jurgen Wrede


In the year 79 A.D., the beautiful city of Pompeii sits at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. For years, the lovely town has attracted the best of Rome's citizens, and it is famous for both its businesses and luxuries. But a terrible secret lies deep beneath the slopes of the mighty mountain. A secret that will unleash unspeakable horrors on the fateful afternoon of August 24th...

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!

The player with the most survivors will be the winner!
