Game 1
Tomek (Germanic tribes): 7
Andygor (Rome): 6

That was a bloody victory that could easily have been a disaster. Arminius won but lost quite a few of his most renown warriors.

Game 2
Tomek (Rome): 7
Andygor (Germanic tribes): 3
The battle was won on the Right flank. Afterwards it was matter of out-maneuvering the hungry exhausted and desperate Germans. The Vistula River became the new border of the Empire.

Game 1
David (Germanic tribes): 3
toganalper (Rome): 7

The Romans decided to push forward and try to take the hill at all cost. They first charged and weakened the Tribes, then moved back and start to irritate them with distant shots. When the Germanic tribes cav decided to join the feast the Romans attacked at all fronts to finish the battle with a lucky victory.

David(Rome): 6
toganalper(Germanic tribes): 7

Looking to the difficult task at hand the tribe leader decided to take a hold on the hill never go down with his troops until the Romans have some attrition. The tribe leader asked the cav units to charge furiously to the roman left flank and to keep them busy.
At the right moment when the Romans were very close to win the fight the tribal warriors were able to separate the roman right flank isolate them and finish them off to call it a victory for the tribes.

David is a very nice and fun person to play. I hope to see and play with him in next tournaments to come.

Game 1

Cavie (Roman) - 7 Banners won
Benlore (Germanic Tribes) - 4 Banners won

Took a good 5 hours to complete this first game since there was a lot of cat and mouse moves happening. Ran the deck out of cards and broke the game in to two parts after hitting that point.

Ben stayed on the mountains with his troops which gave me time to back up and organize my lines if he decided to Double Time off of them. Once we ran the deck out I new he had Spartacus and Both DT's in his hand.

When we started the 2nd part of the game I figured he would come full force off the mountain so I tried a left flank distraction being his troops were a little more weak on that side. I didn't play the move well and got lucky a few of his rolls were not devastating. He finally used his DT's and came over towards his right flank and the remainder of the battle was decided there.

Game 1
Gonzo (German): 7 banners
EZPickins (Roman): 5 banners
Aggressive Roman push in middle stymied 2 with attrition until Arminius dies. Romans corner and kill several leaderless untis until other German leader showed up and killed Germanicus and then the leaderless Romans were chewed up. Close game, mostly grinding combat on hill, the push of shields.
Game 2
Gonzo (Roman): 7 banners
EZPickins (German) 5 banners
Missile fire drove German light units from front of hill. In the first of many Double times the German W and Aux came screaming down the hill while Arminius watched from the hill. They killed 3 units and lost the Aux. More German push in the middle with DT met a Roman double time and Cav charge with all 3 MC ending the game. Both players were in position to win at the end.
Thanks to my opponent for a well played match. There were no "E Z Pickins" to be had in this match. :)

Game 1
spleen1980 (Roman): 7 banners
Polonus100 (Germanic): 6 banners

As Roman player I wanted to avoid to fight uphill, but I had Clash of Shields pretty soon and I took the opportunity to inflict heavy damage to some germanic auxilia on the hills. Then Polonus played Double Time, leaving the safety of the hill, gaining two banners.
There were a lot of attacks, counterattacks and tactical retreats in the center section, Polonus quickly gained 6 banner, I had only 3.
Three germanic units were exposed, so I played what I thought that was going to be the last turn for me: I Am Sparatcus, attacking 2 units in clear terrain and Arminius on the hill. I got 3 banners from the attack, killing 1 med inf, 1 warrior and capturing Arminius,
Polonus attacked my units on the hills in my left flank to harvest the victorius banner, but the hills offered very good protection. Germanicus attacked a lone warrior unit winning the battle.

Game 2
spleen1980 (Germanic): 7 banners
Polonus100 (Roman): 5 banners

I quickly occupy the hills in the center section and I move the med cav with the lead in the middle of the hills.
Polonus knows that he has to avoid to fight up hill and unleashes his cavalry on the roman left, killing two germanic med cav left alone.
The roman cavalry is a little bit overextended, so I attack them in clear terrain with med inf an warrior units. The infatry repels the roman cavalry, so I launch the same two units against a 1 block med cav with a Double Time card: i know they're going to die soon, but I want to take the opportunity to kill the leader. The attack is partially successful and after some roma counterattacks we are both have 4 banners.
Polonus plays a very good Rally card and pushes my right flank and the forest in the center section. I use my last couple of good cards to reinforce and counterattack in the hexes between the hills and the forest, I use a light infantry unit to screen my med cavalry and leader, knowing it is going to die soon. In fact Germanicus advances with his heavy infantry to wipe the light infantry which is without evade/retreat path: Germanicus fails to kill the light infantry, the battle back inflicts 1 hit and Germanicus has not the favour of Dea Fortuna and he dies to the leader check. I think this was the turning point of the battle. But the rest of the game was very, very tense! Polonus is very aggressive and he makes the best use of the only roman leader. The fight is concentrated again in the center section, in the hexes between the hills and the forest. I occupy the forest with a warrior unit. I kill one med cav, the roman leader survives the leader check and he manages to evade through the forest! I have 6 banners, Polonus has 5 banners and I have three units in a very bad position. At this point the soldiers are tired, we both have unusable cards, but Polunus moves a warrior unit, closing the retreat path for a 2 blocks light infantry roman unit. I attack the light infantry, harvesting the last banner.

Game 2 is in two log files, there was a disconnection very soon.

Game 1
Mark McG (Germanic): 7 banners
Digital Dick (Roman): 1 banners

Germans stayed on the hill, and Romans didn't close. Roman cavalry flanking maneuver failed rather badly, with a botched Rally attempt. German cavalry then flanked the Romans and scored banners on the hurt units in the rear.

Attach the game log.
Game 2
Mark McG (Roman): 7 banners
Digital Dick (Germanic): 6 banners

Learning from the first game, the Romans closed up on the hill, influenced by a Clash of Shields card. Germanic cavalry nearly stole the show, but Germanicus pulled it from the fire at the end.

Game 1

Stormwalker (Germanic): 7
Giulio (Roman): 6

This game was played some time ago and I don't remember the details. My log file is only partial. Marcin if you have a good one please add it. Or I'll attach mine if necessary.

Game 2

Giulio (Germanic): 7
Stormwalker (Roman): 6

The match was balanced all the time. Roman attacked the hill, took losses and retreated. Then they start operating with the cavalry on the left flank with much more success. A terrible mistake in positioning a cav, forced by Marcin's well-coordinated attack, did cost me two banners! In the end, I managed to kill a two-block solitaire Roman aux unit on the right. I had the poorest cards imaginable, made mistakes and rolled badly. I think it's hard for the Romans to win this one if the German plays wisely.

Carthage (Germanic) 6
It was very hard to bouth sides? because of very bad command cards in the begining. Germanics was very brave and atеacked me in center and my right flang. I had commands only on left, so i began contratacked by my MC in left flang. It gave me the necessary respite and new cards. God of dice was Roman at that day ))) With good cards, dice and Roman infantary i began kill Germanic everywehere))) It was 6-4 score. But Germanic in his last move attack with spirit of Spartacus. It became 6-5, 6-6. And in last attack 1 Germaт Warrior against my Middle Infantary , God of Dice again was with Roman. And score became 7-6
