If you're so goth, where were you when we ransacked Rome?

A rather silly question, to be sure (you were hanging out in the Collosseum, petting the lions), but it's one that you can live out in the new version of Pandemic that Z-Man Games has announced. Barbarian hordes are gathering outside the walls and the citizens of Rome are trapped. The garrisons are stretched thin. Will they be able to hold out or is the Fall of Rome inevitable? The new edition is available to order now.
From the announcement:
Citizens, soldiers, and allies of the Roman Empire unite in Pandemic: Fall of Rome! Raise armies, defend your cities, and forge alliances to ward off relentless barbarian incursions. Can you hold the line against the invading horde and prevent the fall of Rome? Pre-order Pandemic: Fall of Rome today from our website or your local retailer!
Pandemic: Fall of Rome follows the proud tradition of the award-winning Pandemic, transforming the signature cooperative crisis management gameplay from disease control to the defense of one of the greatest civilizations in history! Instead of diseases, players face off against the migration of aggressive barbarian tribes. They must defend their cities long enough to forge alliances with the invading hordes, and in doing so save the Empire from certain doom.​

It about £38 at Gameslore, ships this week. I think I may have my Christmas list ;-)

I know this because they had it in their email, I'm sure others will have it.

I have it and tried a few turns as an experiment. It catches the feel of the genre well but will feel very familiar if you know Pandemic. There's some clever moves where you can form an alliance with a tribe of barbarians (a bit like getting a cure to a disease in the original game) and from that point on you can recruit them into the Legions. I need to get a full game together in the next week or two.
