Played this twice on the weekend against Masterchief and King Billy, once as each side. Won a close one as Spartacus (5-4) taking 2 banners on my last move against Mummius's cohort in the centre to snatch the win off Masterchief. Swapped sides and had an easier time. Romans marched up the centre and fended off slave charges as Spartacus tried to stop the march of the legion towards their camp.Spartacus survived but his army didn't - Romans won (5-3)
Yeah - this was a fun game. My initial cards (which I cannot remember now) suggested trying to attack into the right forest. And then when the correct card (ie, Line Command) eventually popped up - I'd try and advance around the right flank of the towns. I remember it got close, and I think I just couldn't get that second unit onto one of those dang town hexes!
