I am having a bit of confusion with the JD18 scenario special rule which in the VASSAL module reads "At the end of the 1st Roman turn in which Camillus has moved that player draws 2 command cards and removes 1 random card from the Volscian player."
Hi Dan, I read it as "a permanent increase to the Roman command to 6 cards and the reduction of Volscian to 4 cards".
If others have interpreted it the same way I can change the special rule on the web page.

Yes, I think I agree with your interpretation. That's how we interpreted it. The original scenario and the module might benefit from better text on this.

Game 1
MichalK (Volscian) 6 banners won
TTK (Roman) 5 banners won

A very balanced game, which was going for so long towards the Roman victory ans completely flipped in last two turns! That was a true thiller!

Game 2
TTK (Volscian) 1 banner won
MichalK (Roman) 6 banners won

That was completely different form the first skirmish; Romans were controlling the tempo, sacrificed cavalry to get to 6 cards, and had cards (like Line Command, Double Time, Inspired Center) to do whatever they need. A brutal day for Volsci.

Perhaps add a clarification note that the effect is to increase Roman command to 6 nd reduce Volscii command to 4, but the special rule gives instruction on how to do this, and should remain.

It all starts with a couple of lateral cavalry attacks. Some shots from far away. The Volscians position themselves in line and prepare to attack the center. when the first unit is shot down, the attack starts to avoid the inferiority given by the command cards. After a few rounds of close attacks, the game ends in favor of the Volscian.

Thanks to Scrum4you, good played.

The Volscians' 6th VB was a failed Leader Check for the Romans.
Good game!

Match 1

JawaNick (Volscian) 6 banners won

Cavie (Roman) 5 banners won

Match 2

Cavie (Volscian) 2 banners won

JawaNick (Roman) 6 banners won

First match saw Cavie's Roman's waste no time engaging in the centre. After the dust settled a few turns later, the Volscians were ahead and went on to edge the battle by a single block.

Second match saw Rome's Furius have considerable success in the centre before falling in battle. However, the Roman cavalry swiftly avenged his death, routing the Volscians and slaying their leader.

Thanks for the games Cavie!
