Ludi Romani Schedule

Saturday, 13th September

11:30am - Roman Ritual for Jupiter Optimus Maximus @ ROMA Transtiberim

A ritual to honour the King of the Gods, Jupiter Optimus Maximus, followed by a light social gathering with dancing and feasting. Come join us in celebrating the beginning of the Ludi Romani!

12pm - Ludi Romani Chariot Races @ the Circus Maximus Hippodrome in ROMA

A traditional part of the ancient Ludi Romani were chariot races - and for our Ludi Romani, we have our own! Come race against other Citizens for prizes (anyone can sign up to race), or come watch the spectacle and cheer on the racers as you drink wine and nibble Rich Imperialist Tidbits. There will be 3 races of 3 laps each, and 1st place in each race wins a prize!

2pm - Jovian Nymph & Faun Chase through ROMA Transtiberim

One of the favourite pastimes of the Gods was chasing beautiful nymphs (much to the Goddesses chagrin), and Jupiter was no exception. For our Ludi Romani, you'll get to chase our ROMA nymphs & fauns. Chase them around Transtiberim and try to tag them - the one who tags the most nymphs or fauns will receive a prize!

Sunday, 14th September

9am - Ludi Romani Carnivale in ROMA Transtiberim

Come have fun at our Ludi Romani Carnivale! There are games to play, rides to enjoy, and free food! Some games even have prizes to be won! The Carnivale also features a kissing booth, where you can get a kiss from a lovely Priestess or handsome Senator for as little as $L15! So don't miss it!

10am - Ludi Romani Athletic Games @ Fort Legio Augusta in ROMA

An important part of any ludi are the games, and Ludi Romani means "The Roman Games". Our games will feature Archery, Wrestling, Rock Climbing, and Discus & Javelin Throwing - 1st place winners will all recieve prizes, 2nd & 3rd will recieve $L200, and all winners will be given a laurel crown in honour of their achievement.
