Immerse yourself in the colorful world of fortune-tellers and snake dancers. Visit a time when traveling circuses of men, women, and beasts were able to enchant entire villages by means of feats, songs, and stories. In Spectaculum, you determine the paths on which four traveling shows journey through an entire kingdom. On their travels, the entertainers are acknowledged with much applause, but may also get some jeers for poor performances. You determine which shows are worthy of your financial support, but be careful of which entertainers you sponsor - only those with successful shows can help fill your coffers. Whoever turns out to be the most prudent patron by amassing the greatest wealth wins the game.
