Ancient Rome was flush in rich colors, lavish outfits, and historically influential characters. The ROME: Caesar Deck focuses on the time period of the First Triumvirates of Rome’s dramatic history. The First Triumvirate ended when Julius Caesar defeated Pompey the Great and became Dictator, before his assassination by members of the Senate.
The ROME: Ceasar Tuck Box has Red textured background images, and is accented with GOLD FOIL designs. Caesar’s Tuck features an imperial Eagle and a customary Roman border design.

The Top of Caesar’s Tuck is printed with the words, “ALEA IACTA EST and VENI VIDI VICI” – Latin for “The die is cast” and “I came, I saw, I conquered.”
