Round 3,

Giulio (Slave): 8 Banners and 11 blocks lost
Toganalper (Roman): 2 Banners and 28 blocks lost

The slave army advances in the center. Thanks to good cards, Slaves can concentrate their forces and inflict losses to the disorganized Romans. One warrior unit also escapes from the southern edge. No rolling fires. We had to check various rules during the game. I hope our interpretation was correct:

- a leader alone in the hex is not a foot unit for line command card,
- a leader alone in the hex is a unit for the "Inspired Leadership" card;
- the war machine too needs one or two free hexes to be able to evade.

Rnd5 Bruttium (71 BC)

Viridovilas (Roman): 6 banners and 10 blocks lost
G1ul10 (Slave): 2 banners and 29 block lost

The battle began with a smart Slave move that strategically position its light horses to let a pair of its infantry leave the field on the Roman left side of the board almost untouched. Romans then hurried its light troops to block the Slave army. The battle then shifted directly on the ramparts, where a pair of erratic arrows hit both the Slave leaders. With Spartacus on the ground, there was no chance for the Slave to survive (especially which such the dice G1uli10 rolled all match long)

Round 2 Mt Garganus

BrentS (Roman): 2 banners and 24 blocks lost
G1ul10 (Slave): 6 banners and 14 blocks lost

The barbarians put a lot of pressure on the right wing of the Roman legions and, thanks to a couple of good rolls, achieved local superiority, eliminating two Roman medium units and one auxilia. The rest of the game was a cat and mouse exercise in the central section. Brent masterfully managed to survive while bringing his left wing near my isolated troops in the top left section. That gave him another medal. But the next turn the slave warriors assaulted scattered Roman light infantry and won the battle. Today I've had the lucky rolls I missed yesterday.

Round 4: Mummius Defeat

taliapharaoh - Slaves, 5 banners, 13 blocks lost
Stormwalker - Romans, 1 Banner, 19 blocks lost


Apparently, Spartacus was not only able to inspire his troops on this day, but he prayed to the correct gods.

Loaded with Leadership, Counterattack, Double-Time, and Medium cards throughout the battle, it seemed that fortune favored the slaves on this day. After some initial skirmishing and positioning, the slave right side was able to win the day, charging out of the woods led surprisingly by the heroic efforts of the light horse, whose sacrifice paved the way for victory. A double-time card allowed three units to gang up on a wounded M for the final banner.

Picenum, Round 3

Taliapharaoh 8 banners/18 blocks lost (Slave) vs Viridovilas 5 banners/30 blocks lost (Roman)

The ability of the Slaves to attack the isolated Roman right proved to be the difference, allowing the concentrated W and M units to punch through the Legions.


Thanks to Max for his flexibility that allowed us to find a time to play.

Alpha/Slave Semifinal: gottoman (10 total banners/53 blocks lost) vs. taliapharaoh (12 total banners/42 blocks lost)

Two great games vs. a great opponent. Very evenly matched, both games hinged on just a couple of key rolls and cards.

Game 1: The Slaves (Greg) made a massive move against the Roman center, but fortunately a single Roman M was able to hold off three full strength warriors and allow the center to eliminate them on the following move. A back and forth battle for the center would decide the game, with a well-timed Spartacus card saving the day (ironically) for the Romans.

Game 2: Slaves (Travis) made an early concerted effort to trap and destroy the isolated Roman (Greg) detachment on the Roman left. An abundance of excellent cards and fortunate rolls allowed the Slaves to hammer 3 of the units, but some unbelievable rolls allowed a lone unit and leader to escape to rejoin the Roman main lines, who used the opportunity to press the center of the Slave formation. Fortunately, the Slaves were able to hold off the Romans in the center and Roman left, and Spartacus himself was able to finish the battle with an extremely lucky roll charging downhill on the Roman right.

MT61 semi-finals

MichalK vs BrentS

GAME 1
Michal (Slaves) - Brent (Romans) 6-3
That game saw a very aggressive play on slave left / roman right with the other side completely neglected. The game can go any way really, as in the end both sides had a lot of 1 and 2 block units. The action was so quick and intense in the center, that it was very hard to bring new units to the fight from far away.

GAME2
Michal (Romans) - Brent (Slaves) 6-5
Opposite to first game, the action was mainly on Roman left / Slaves right, near hills were 4 detached Roman units were located. The managed to put a really good fight but in the end were killed. For a long time the score was 5 to 3 for Brent and everything can happen. The stalemate lasted for 3-4 turns and then after DT attack, the Romans finally crushed rebels, gaining 3 banners in two turn, including lc2d.

Thanks to Brent for playing the games, especially after whole day at work. It was as always a pleasure.

And now, to the final!
