“Provides the Strength of the Gladiator power in combat once a day, increasing the effectiveness of your troops. Produces defenders when you are attacked.”

The Colosseum is one of four wonders unlocked in the Classical Age.

General Information[]

  • It functions like a Garrison when your city is under attack, with two notable differences - it produces more defenders per wave, and it has a much larger detection radius.
  • The type of defender that the Colosseum produces is the same as that of the highest level Garrison you have.
  • Although the Colosseum doesn't glow green when the Acropolis is selected, it receives the latter's bonus. You can see this from the reduced wave times.
  • Additionally, the Colosseum provides a tactic called "Strength of the Gladiator" every 24 hours, which doubles the damage of your units(and increases their speed) for a short period of time. Selecting the Colosseum shows a countdown timer indicating the time when Strength of the Gladiator can be collected again.

Historical Description[]

The Colosseum is a huge stone and concrete amphitheater standing in the center of the city of Rome. Constructed over a ten-year period beginning in 70 AD, the Colosseum was used to house gladiatorial battles, animal hunts, theatrical events, executions and other crowd-pleasing events. The largest amphitheater in the world, it could hold around 70,000 spectators. During the 'no-fun' medieval era, the Colosseum was converted into housing, complete with a church and a graveyard in the area. In 1349 it was damaged by a terrible earthquake, and much of its stone was looted to rebuild other sections of Rome, but what still remains is awe-inspiring.


The Colosseum is also a defense; proof is that it can be stopped with Sabotage and Heavy Cavalry can home to it, like other defenses.
