Caesar and Cleopatra
From the Publisher...
In this, the third of our series of 2-player games, Caesar and Cleopatra are locked in a struggle to determine the amount of independence Egypt will have. The decision lies in the hands of the powerful patricians. The players, as Caesar and Cleopatra, use their influence and special actions to win patricians to their side. When a vote of confidence is called, the player with the larger influence wins the voice of a patrician. Each voice brings one victory point. There are additional victory points for the majority in a patrician group, for the influence of a whole group and for a secret influence bonus. Whoever earns the most victory points, chooses the fate of Egypt and wins the game.

|Caesar and Cleopatra is really an abstract area control game for 2 players. However, it has one mechanic, that makes it shine for me, and that is the fact that your actions are planned in advance, introducing an element of strategy to an otherwise very tactical game. It plays fast and has just the right depth of decisions if you are ready to move on from some of the "lighter" games in the Kosmos 2-player series.
