Glory to Rome is about the rebuilding of Rome after Nero burns it down, as players seek to be the ones who earn the most fame during the rebuilding of many of Rome's structures. Each player is given a "Camp" card, which acts as a reference card, and also forms four areas in front of the player: Their Influence (which starts at two), their Clientele (in which they can place cards equal to their influence), their Vault (again, can hold cards equal to a player's influence), and their Stockpile. Players also should keep an area clear where they can build new buildings.

There are six different site cards (Marble, Stone, Wood, Rubble, Brick, and Concrete), and a pile of each is placed near the center of the table - each pile containing one card for each player in the game (maximum of five). A pile of "Order" cards is shuffled, and four are dealt to each player, along with one "Jack" card. The remainder of the Order cards are shuffled into a deck, with one card for each player flipped face up and placed into the "Pool" in the middle. The player's card which comes first alphabetically is the first player and is given the Leader card. Play begins with him and passes clockwise around the table.
