Today’s Simulation
  • Each group represents a powerful patrician family in the Roman Senate
  • Goal: be on the winning side of the votes
  • Forming alliances and bribing are okay


  • Each family will start with a certain amount of money. Keep track of it as you are dealing with others
  • You may use your money to complete any of these actions:
    • Purchase a bodyguard ($1) – protects 1 member from 1 assassination attempt
    • Assassinate a member of a family ($30) – eliminates a member of a rival family, preventing them from voting
    • Buy an extra vote ($20) – gives you one extra vote in that round
voting topics

  • Expand the Senate
  • Aid for the Poor/ rioting because of lack of food
