It is 37 AD and Caligula is the extravagant Emperor of Rome! It is a time of excess and intrigue, and the latest gala in Caligula's short reign is starting tonight - Bacchus' Banquet! As one of nine "honored guests" each with their own secret objective, you fully participate in the orgy of rich cuisine, fine wine, and elaborate entertainments. Caligula is watching! But be careful, accompanying every course is the potential of a drunken stupor, a subtle poison, or an assassin's dagger - any one of which can destroy you and your aspirations!
