Question about Struggle for Rome Roll for Resource Production - Do the 4 markers with crosses remain on the numbers after the 4 dice rolls, or do I have to remove them before the turn continues?

Answer

That’s up to you. Given that leaving the markers in place helps you to recall information already available to everyone, we'd recommend that you leave the markers where they are. This helps avoid situations where a player bugs his opponents by repeatedly asking which numbers were rolled.
