If you have come here it is because you wish to manage your own chariot racing team. Train your drivers and give them the finest equipment and horses. If you do this well, your chariots will provide you with both wealth and fame. but beware! Chariot races are dangerous. Accidents may occur and rival teams might try to harm your charioteers during the race. Make sure you do not grow too attached to your charioteers and always have a replacement available. Good luck!

Qvadriga is a tactical game of chariot racing in ancient Roman circuses, where you take control of a four horse chariot team. Choose your preferred upgrade combinations and prove your skills at the arena. Select the most cunning actions which your team could perform against the best drivers of the old world: shake reins, whip horses, choose lanes, hold tight while negotiating curves, avoid incoming attacks, block enemies path, lacerate and whip them until achieving victory.

Start an epic campaign from the most modest tracks of the empire corners, assemble a mighty team and build your fame through the provinces until reaching enough wealth to finally open the gates of Rome's greatest competition at the Circus Maximus, where you will be able to enter history and reach favour of gods.

I can't believe you've played this game without any issues. I like this game, I recommend this game, but you really do need to work around its very old-fashioned UI and design quirks. It's a unique gem, but it really could use some polish.

I did post over on the Slitherine forums too but the original dev (not Slitherine, who ported it) is on record as pretty much considering the game "finished". I doubt it'll ever get any more patches or updates.

I can't stress enough that it is a fun, strangely compelling and utterly unique game that I'm happy to own. I just wish any part of it looked or felt like it came from the last 10 years. Game looks like something you'd boot into from a Windows 98 command prompt.

One of my Aurigas has 5 wins which is enough for him to be list as one of the top leaders in the city I'm racing in, but he's not listed. There is an Auriga with 4 wins listed as the last name on the list and 9 wins for the top guy. Anyone have any idea why my guy wouldn't be listed?

My guess would be that not all five victories came from that city.

They definitely did. I'd had that thought as well.

I hate that I have to stop playing this, but I restarted and again my Aurigas are not showing up as leaders, so I guess that leaves me with no way to progress. I was really enjoying this too.

Edit: I think I may see the issue. One of the leaders is of the same faction as me but has more wins.
