Introduction
The Poison Rome map is designed on the layout of a family-tree based on the Julio-Claudian Family and pushes the boundaries of CC maps. The main bonus zones are based around having all members of an entire family and the bonus zones are noted as part of the marriage symbols between the parents. The four Roman Gods also have an autodeploy troop bonus. Although the map's layout and connections between family members may appear confusing initially, studying the legend carefully will reward players with an understanding of how to move quickly around the map.

The Poison Rome map is a very flexible map which works with any settings. It should be noted that the best strategies for standard, two player, and team games are all very different on this map.

===============================
This ends the Official Map Guide.

However, there may be relevant strategy discussion outside the scope of this basic map guide located in the below further discussion.

Please keep the discussion general so it applies to many situations. Guidance about your specific games should go in the main Strategy forum.
