Move the tiles until you have three or more in a row either vertically or horizontally. As more tiles appear you have to use your skills to match the items and earn points and bonuses. The more points and bonuses you get, the faster you can unlock the buildings and move on to the next stage.
Every great leader must overcome obstacles and this will be true for you as you work your way through the Reign of Rome. Some items will be locked, chained or put in a box until you make a match to release them.
While Rome may not have been built in a day, you will need to hurry if you want to complete each stage before someone else does. Each level has a time limit which means that you must race against time to be the first to complete it.
Who will be the first to complete their Empire? Using OpenFeint you can see the scores your friends and other users have achieved giving you the added motivation you need to collect all the available bonuses, ensuring that you finish your empire first. There can only be one leader and that must be you!
