Fun, fast, involves luck and strategy.
This is the game that got my family into hobby gaming. It has been called "gamer bingo", but I think that nickname downplays the strategy in this game. While drawing tokens out of a bag definitely creates a luck factor, I can say from many, many plays that the most strategic player will win most of the time. Above all, this game is just fun! It is fast and lends itself to multiple plays at a sitting. Highly recommended.

Rise of Augustus is a good game for the beginner
Rise of Augustus is a great game for someone just starting out in the hobby or introducing someone into a hobby type game. With its bingo style drawing mechanic, it lends itself to more of a luck style game than anything. While there is some strategy involved, getting the right tile pulled is what will ultimately lead to victory. I had a good time playing it and will play it again.

Fantastic Gateway Game
Rise of Augustus is an awesome gateway game, the perfect game to play with people new to the hobby of gaming. The way I describe the game to new players is its strategic bingo, each player has what are essentially three bingo cards at a time but each card has a point value and a special power you get to use upon completion leaving you some interesting decisions to make. The game also includes some nice press your luck mechanics to add some excitement to the game.

I have played Augustus tons with players aged 5 to 50 and both experienced gamers and complete non gamers and have yet to find someone who does not enjoy the game and want to play again.

Ave Caesar Bingo!
Rise of Augustus is a super light filler type, that incorporates a bingo like mechanism where players places small meeples of their cards corresponding to the symbols that are randomly drawn. There are also reward tiles (for completed combo tile-sets) that make this a bit strategic for an otherwise random draw game. Its a cool game, worth checking out.
