"Panem et circenses!" This was the chant shouted by thousands upon thousands of Romans as they poured into the great arenas (circuses) on over 200 holidays per year to enjoy the epic competitions of Ancient Rome. The largest of these arenas was the famous Circus Maximus, erected between the Palatine and Aventine hills. Here, circa 500 BC, spectators were treated to horse-drawn chariot races, in which competitors struggled through 7 laps around a perilous 1200 meter course.

Wolfgang Riedesser has recreated these daring races in this game. Since its initial publication in 1989, Ave Caesar has developed a cult following like few other games. It is well known for its quick and exciting play. In Ave Caesar, you and up to five other charioteers compete in Circus Maximus to determine who is the greatest driver in all of Rome. The racer who most skillfully navigates their chariot over the course of three laps will receive the most Laurels. After several races, whoever has collected the most Laurels wins the tournament, and the adulation of countless thousands.
Each race will play out differently - see if you will be the next charioteer to triumphantly shout out, 'Ave Caesar!!!'
