Game 2

KWofford (Republican) 5 banners

Game 1
Antony and company got off to a great start going up 5-1, before a lethal cavalry charge netted 4 banners in 1 turn to even things up. Triumvirs are out of left flank cards where the Republicans are weak and 2 line command cards used by Brutus are able to get the last 3 banners for a 8-5 win. Repubs had great cards all game and very hot dice late.

Game 2
This time the Repubs got off to a 4-0 lead but the Triumvirs battled back to tie it 4-4. Republican cavalry charge back fired and Octavian got off his butt to get the last banner for victory, Again I had hot dice late.

Thanks to Ken for two tense fun games.

Bangla (Republican) 8 banners
Tomek (Triumvirates) 5 banners

Game 2
Tomek (Republican) 8 banners
Bangla (Triumvirates) 7 banners

These two games were the 5th and 6th games Tomek and I have played in OTs in the past 6 months.  We played each other in Round 5 of OT2021, and then immediately afterwards in the Quarter Finals.  Including these two matches, we have a 3-3 record, and I'm just ahead 39-36 on banners.  All 6 games have been a joy to play, keenly contested, and without a glitch in any of the proceedings.  For these two games, in the first my dice were awesome and there was little Tomek could do.  The second looked like Tomek was going to win by at least three banners until a late counter attack threatened his camp and almost stole the game.  Two more good games ... I hope we're both still around and meet again in the knockout stages.

GoTigerSSC – Republicans - 4 Banners
Rand – Triumvirate - 8 Banners


The Triumvirate reorganize their calvary and send them up the middle, where the game becomes a race of whether the Republicans can destroy the overextended Triumvirate Left flank before the latter’s calvary can destroy the Republican center.
As the Republicans try to overwhelm their opponents on the hills near the Republican encampments, the Triumvirate forces get lucky with a First Strike destroying a Medium Infantry on a single roll, and on their next turn cut down Cassius. The Triumvirate then run out of Left flank cards, leaving units there to be slowly whittled down. However, the Triumvirate calvary breaches the ramparts in the center with a +1 Calvary Charge and chase down two Republican Medium Infantry in the center of the battlefield. The Republicans counter with Clash of Shields that causes numerous casualties throughout the battlefield. The Triumvirate Calvary then cut down two infantry units and overrun into the Republican calvary that are destroyed on the edge of the battlefield. One Triumvirate calvary captures a Republican encampment, ending the game on the next turn.

Good game, couple tough dice rolls for GoTigerSSC that would have changed things, plus the untimely death of Cassius. Good luck to GoTigerSSC in the rest of the tournament.

The Triumvirate's supposed out-flanking position soon looked more of a disadvantage than history suggested but in the end, after some desperate close combat, the result was more or less even. Meanwhile, the Republicans pressed forward from the ramparts on the opposite flank, a follow-up attack despatching Octavian to put themselves within sight of victory. However, a Triumvirate calvary charge tipped the balance again and a last ditch Double Time gave them a strong attack on the Republican's weakened centre to claim the winning banner. If the Republican's First Strike had arrived earlier in the game, it might have been a different story.

A very close match with most of the action taking place on the Republican left, where Brutus, being superior in number, advanced forcing the Triumvirate in a defensive position until when two double time allowed Antony to come in support of Octavian. In the end after a failed attempt of the Triumvirate to capture the right Republican's flank camp, the battle came to a conclusion thanks to a failed attack of the Republican cavalry on a light unit unable to evade. This allowed the Triumvirate to march to the rampart on their right claiming the last banner.

Thanks to Polonus100 for this great match. Looking forward to the rematch.

We rolled off to see who would start as which army. My winning the roll-off 4-1 was a harbinger of the dice luck throughout the game.

The Triumvirate started with a sustained attack on the left flank dealing heavy blows and weakening the Republican’s ability to defend the ramparts on the right. The Republicans soon brought Cassius into play to shore up that side, and his heavy infantry defeated the Triumvirate’s heavy cavalry and forced the unnamed leader to retreat. But Cassius’s supporting units had suffered too many losses and cavalry quickly made work of all his support, leaving Cassius and his heavy infantry the sole defenders of the Republican’s right flank. Brutus, trying to spur on his troops, left the ramparts to bring his forces toward the enemy. This was quickly met by an advance of the Triumvirate’s right flank where the first pilum thrown by the Auxilia hit the heavy troops and took out Brutus. It wasn’t long after that the cavalry and leader-supported troops forced the Republicans to retire from the field.

This is the second match in our meeting. Overall, luck was a little more balanced in this one (Brad eliminated one of my leaders this time!)Once again, the battle started with an attack of the Republican’s right flank. A big difference here was the Triumvirate didn’t seem to be able to sustain the attack and the Republicans were able to repel and shore up their right flank. Still the Triumvirate’s battling back eliminated a full-strength heavy infantry as well as Cassius! The Triumvirate (line command) followed up with a full-on assault of the Republican ramparts. The ramparts provided enough protection to stop the assault from breaking the line gaining the ramparts. The Republicans (order medium troops) were able to reinforce the ramparts and eliminate an unprotected Triumvirate leader. The fighting continued on the ramparts, with the Triumvirate gaining ground and units eliminated on both sides. A final push by the Republicans enabled them to retake the ramparts and claim the day.

I really enjoyed my games with Brad. The second battle was extremely tense with punishing dice rolls by both sides that made the battle advantage keep swinging back and forth. Either side could have ended as the victor!

The Triumvirate took early advantage of Cassius' weak flank whilst attempting to snipe Brutus on the other side. Republican units were starting to weaken, forcing them to tackle the threats head-on.  Dice were favourable, and the despatch of an enemy Heavy Infantry unit was a welcome boost. The Triumvirate now doubled-down with an attack by medium troops, but their dice could not compensate for lack of Leader support. This left several units  in place for a Republican Clash of Shields which proved a turning point in the game. Further Triumvirate attacks failed to breakthrough, dice being mediocre and the rampart proving a good defence for the Republicans.

Josiah opened with an assault on my right flank. Playing Double Time and Line Command he quickly killed three of my units. I counter attacked and cut off and killed his heavy and leader as well as a medium in the marsh. He then shifted come cavalry to the center and went after my infantry behind ramparts. This cost him two medium cavalry. I played Counter Attack and sent medium infantry and cavalry against his line and got my last two kills.

It was a fairly quick game with aggressive play on both sides. I enjoyed playing Josiah he is a tough opponent.

both games are without blitzkrieg, a lot of heavy infantry, which fights powerfully from both sides

Cap prefers C&C: Napoleonics and it was hard to play with him. But nice/
