Games featuring Ancient World Themes
This web page has instructions for playing games that were popular in ancient times, such as Latrunculi.
A PC strategy game in which you develop your own empire and build cities similar to the one shown below.
(Of course, you have to beat off those pesky barbarians, too.)
The graphics are beautifully detailed, and provide realistic reconstructions of homes, temples, and other public buildings in Pompeii. If you aren't a fan of problem solving games, there is a walk-through mode that allows you to explore the environment.
At this site you can download houses, furniture, and other things you need to make a Roman style household for your "Sims".
Recreated Ancient Roman Music
