Over the centuries, many different groups have inhabited the lands surrounding the Mediterranean, and they have fought with each other for every bit of coastline they can get. But, then again, they’ve also traded with each other. It’s kind of a love-hate relationship they all have. And in Trade and War – Ancient Mediterranean, you’ll be in charge of one of those civilizations. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
