The Agora was the central place for trading, bargaining, and gatherings in a city (that called a polis) in ancient Greece. Moreover, it was the place where the court was held.
In Agora the players occupy themselves in this busy place by taking actions, trying to get resources to build monuments, and improving their rhetorical skills to gain the upper hand on opponents and receive court verdicts in their favor. The player with the highest total value of these achievements wins.
