In Sylla, players attempt to become the premier Consul of Rome and take over from the titular character, Sylla who is stepping down after reforming the legal system.

Each of the five years (turns) is subdivided into seven phases in which the players take their actions. Sylla is a semi-cooperative board game where players will have to use Senators, Legionaries, Merchants, Vestal Virgins and Slaves to construct buildings and spread their influence through the country. In addition, they will need to prepare for negative events like plagues or persecution of the Christians and the rot of decadence that fell the Roman empire.
