Final Game #2
Gonzo (Epirote) 7 banners, 19 blocks lost, Tony 2 banners. 31 blocks lost
Another long game played over two settings. Roman artillery fire extremely accurate all game, but most damaged Epirotes got away. Initial Epirote Cav attack killed LI and damaged another, but lost a War and cav reduced to 2 and 1 point units who fled. On Roman left, Epirote missile units and skirmishing killed a LI, Aux and MI for loss of HI. The Roman Cav on Right moved up as the Epirote counterparts hid. Roman cav chrge scatterd light units while opportune Epirote Counterattack surrounded and killed the Roman Cav. Later Roman surge in Center unable to close before Epirote phalanx killed 2 MI on Right center, pulling last 1 pt MI from wll. Lots of 1 pt Eprirote units left. Tens game, thanks to Tony for great match.

Final Game #1
Tony Epirote 7 lost 31 blocks Gonzo Roman 6 lost 37 blocks
A long game and very back and forth. The Romans initially came forward to battle and the Emirates not having center cards could not repulse them. However, the Romans backed toward there palisade giving the Epirotes a reprieve. There was quite a bit of ranged attack in this game with the Romans having a low hit rate and the Epirotes a higher hit rate. The Roman left flank was the site of the majority of the fighting. The Epirote cavalry charge was quite uneventful and Roman counterattack and double time were able to almost take the win. Epirote Clash of Shields ended the fighting.

Semifinals Tony vs Gottoman

Game 1
Tony Epirotes 4 Gottoman Roman 6
The Romans had the Emirates on their heels for most of the game. In a desperate move the Epirote left flank advanced on the Romans and were able to cause significant damage. The Romans were able to close and cut threw the Epirote Right flank to end the battle.

Game 2
Tony Roman 6 Ottoman Epirotes 3
Romans had poor communication for 1st 3/4 of battle with Order heavy and Light cards. The Epirotes relentlessly advanced. Small counterattacks by the Romans were minimally successful. As Epirotes battered the Roman right flank with little hope for the Romans, communications improved with a double time and Clash of Shields. enabling them to crush the Epirote Left flank.

Game 2 Gonzo (Epirote) 6 banners, 35 kills, Guilio (Roman) 3 banners and 18 kills.
Epirote missile fire on target all game. Early critical roll was 3pt Roman MC with leader vs 2pt Epirote MC with leader in front of Roman lines with pinned one pt Roman LI beside them. Roman only got one hit. BB and subsequent attacks by the Epirote 1 pt MC killed both Roman units which was the only chance for him to survive, although the MC was subsequently killed during an Evade. Still a three banner swing. Traded effective missile fire, but Epirote got the better of it. Epirote HI and Ele advanced on the right, eliminating support for the Roman HI and leader there. Ele did damage before killed, then Epirote HI finished the Roman HI for the last banner. Romans on verge of 2-3 more banners breaking the center, but ran out of time. Gonzo rolled very good 1/6 in this game. Thanks to Guilio for excellent match.

Game 1 Gonzo (Roman) 6 banners 23 kills, Giuilio 5 banners 25 kills
Lots of maneuvering both games with no first strikes or Doubletimes. Early Epirote Cav charge disastrous with loss of Ele and one cav and damaged others. Missile fire from both sides followed by wildly fluctuating dice in melee. Two points of damage on Epirote HI and MI negated with Rally, but subsequently rooled all banners and the beat up Romans mostly got away. Traded blows and banners until the end. Close with plenty of all hit and no hit rolls.

It has been fast and intense. I really enjoyed this game.
Thank you all guys for your patience waiting for my game.

Indeed, all Semi-finalists are now revealed, and the matches are assigned.
Quite a generous due date due to Christmas, but good if they can be finished earlier.

And a Happy and safe Christmas to all!

Round 1
JD13 Lysimacheia (277 BC)
EZPickins (Gallic) 6 banners 25 blocks lost
Togan (Antigonius) 5 banners 28 blocks lost

A closely fought game with even dice rolls. I was able to get the win when a warrior with leader got some consecutive move cards on his right and aided in the destruction of most of this flank. Very enjoyable against a fine opponent.

Round 1
JD13 Lysimacheia (277 BC)


MichalK (Greeks) 6 banners, 20 blocks lost
Giulio (Barbarians) 4 banners, 25 blocks lost

The game was much more tense and balanced then initial set-up and cards disparity shows. It started with standard attack in the center (I had to use double time - no any other card for center). Then Giulio counterattacked and it was 3-1 for Greeks. Some moves (cavalry and light troops) on my right were visible but inconclusive (til the end of the game there). From that moment game continued in a way banner-for-banner, with some crazy rolls (so many flags), unsuccessful MC (me) or very nasty FS (also me). In the end it concluded 6-4, with score disparity as it was set after initial round.

Thanks to Giulio for playing on short notice!

Round 6 - JD24 Mount Eryx (277 BC) has gone 3 times to Carthage (7-5, 7-5, 7-6) & 3 times to Epirus (7-3, 7-4, 7-2) in the tournament, but the Epirote score when losing has been higher.

I played this twice against Railrodder, and Epirus won both times, but he had a very defensive strategy of pulling back onto the Hills, and away from the Epirote Heavy infantry. Didn't work, but combined with a good offensive play, it might be a good delay tactic.

I think this scenario has a fair bit of replayability.

Round 6

Alessandro, Carthaginian: 4 banners won, 35 blocks lost
Giulio, Epirote: 7 banners won, 18 blocks lost

An interesting game in which ranged fire played a major role. A cavalry charge by Epirote elephants proved effective, but the Carthaginian counter-charge eliminated the Epirote heavy infantry with a single blow. The larger hand allowed me to out-maneuver Alessandro on the flanks and at the end he had to abandon the relative safety of the hill and attack my line. The reaction by the Epirote heavy infantry ended the game.

I think this scenario is unbalanced in favor of the Epirote, but with the right cards and good dice rolls, the Carthaginian has the units to win the game. Alessandro maneuvered smartly, but I was pretty lucky with the cards myself and able to strike each time I spotted a weakness in the Carthaginian line.

Round 2 - Macedonia

Cavie (Macedonian) 6 banners won, 19 blocks lost
Stormwalker (Gallic) 4 banners won, 25 blocks lost

Good battle with the barbarian chariots being the deciding factor - they came on early but couldn't quite do the damage intended. Macedonians gathered in the center and hoped to chip away into the end and ended up doing just that.
