In the game of Trajan, players compete for power and influence in ancient Rome. Each turn players accompish one of several actions on the game board to advance their military, send workers to construction sites, influence the Senate, or take special Trajan actions tiles. Action selection is done using multicolored markers on a mancala style player board. The strategy of the game centers on moving these markers to select the best action for that turn while planning for future turns.
