We played four games today. I was in a swivel seat playing two people at once. Play a turn, swivel, play a turn swivel back. I was playing Gaul first on both boards. In game #1 with Don, I won 6-4. Honestly, after playing four games total I don't remember much about this game. He did win the banner for taking the camp.
In the #2 game I played Jonathan. Again I was Gaul, swiveling back from the other board. This game had more drama, as we had the leaders fight on the mountain range. I won the battles on the mountain and broke the Roman push. My leader took some gambles and won. I also had some really good rolls with my Cav. units. I won this one 6-3 again as the Gauls.
After a break to have brownies and tea, we came back to the board. This time I was Roman back in the swivel seat. I decided to push up quickly and take the campus if possible. In game #3 against Don, I was able to get the camps early. Don pushed hard with everything against the camps, but his attacks failed. I was able to take out his three Cav. units first. I got the camp banner, took out the light chariot and another unit to win 6-0. I had great rolls to win game three of the day.
The last game game #4 for the day was against Jonathan. He went first as Gaul and had a mounted charge. We hit my left with all three Cav. units taking out a Cav and a Aux unit. I was in trouble. I decided to move my left to the center and bunch up for protection. I wanted to move everything all to the right and hit his weaker units, but ended up with two and then three cards on the left which were worthless to me. But I also had a rally card which helped later. He came at my mediums in the camps, but I did better after playing the Rally card for a block to the two leaders. I took some risks in follow up and won some banners. I got my heavy in the action and got some good rolls on evades. At the end, he came after another medium with his three Cavs. but it did not work. The last turn of the game, I used a Clash of Shields to roll 7 with my heavies to take out a unit. I won 6-2. In all four games I had a clash of shields, and had two I am Spartacus twice in the four games. Rome wins. We started out 50/50 on the overall games, 78 plays, and after my four wins. It ended up still 50/50 with at a total of 82 plays after I logged them in. A great but long day, and a good day for all.
