Rome: Caesar Edition
He bestrode the world like a colossus, sweeping all before his military might. But when he sought to become Dictator of Rome, he was betrayed by his trusted Brutus and a ring of conspirators, stabbed to death in the Roman Senate itself. With this premium deck by Legends Playing Cards, now you can relive the drama of Julius Caesar’s rise and fall, from his victorious campaigns to the bitter civil wars he left in his wake.
The court cards portray twelve great figures of Caesar’s Era: his early rival Pompey the Great, his noble assassin Marcus Brutus, the treacherous plotter Cassius, his protégé Mark Antony, his successor Augustus, and more. The exquisitely designed card backs are inspired by the classic painting The Death of Julius Caesar.
The tuck box is printed with a four-color process, gold foil, and embossing, and features Caesar’s most famous quotes: ALEA IACTA EST (“the die is cast,” reportedly spoken the moment Caesar crossed the Rubicon with his armies to engage in civil war) and VENI VIDI VICI (“I came, I saw, I conquered”).
