Played a close one of this with Badger last night. His slaves won 6-5 leaving our play through of the Serville war at a narow Roman victory.

I underestimated the effect that attacking uphill would have on my Roman Legions since this is our first battle where it has been significant.:(

One more Serville battle to go.

This one's a lot of fun. Almost an Epic-sized game. I wonder why it's only six banners? With the two huge armies, eight seems correct.

I've seen two Spartacus victories - one two-player and one solo. They seem to have all they need with plenty of troops and a great defensive position on the hills. It's literally an uphill battle for the Romans.

Yes, with 18 v 20 units you would think at least 7 banners?

Way too short. Should be at least 8 banners.

I agree with others that it should be more than 6 banners. The low banner count makes the scenario probably more balanced but it feels weird ending the battle with plenty of units still on the board.

Line command cards are very fun to play on both sides in this one!

Played twice, with one victory to either side (Slaves 6-2, Romans 6-3). In neither battle did the hills play any effect, with all the action on the slave left flank. Spartacus himself was a bystander. At 6 banners it certainly felt balanced.
