how does the score end 6-6?
rjvonline (Rome, 6, 23 blocks lost) vs Rams84 (Slaves, 6, 24 blocks lost)
The slaves again attacked early, but did not achieve much. Roman counter-attacks from both wings nabbed a number of warrior units. Some desperate slave cavalry actions (charging LC) scored a unit or 2 before the Romans ended it having killed all warrior units.
We were plagued with a bug in the second game that resulted in cards being drawn from the Roman hand by the Slave player (as much as we could tell)! Thus I noticed I had lost 1 card from my hand (DT), and it so happened that DT was the card Rams84 drew. It happened again a couple of times.
Also, Rams was convinced that HWM must evade. My reading is that they may, but if they do they're gone. We played it as he said, and frankly even if I'm right and it's optional, it may still be the better tactic!
Note that the block count above includes 2 blocks for the HWM having evaded "out" of the field, although actual hits were 1 against Rams and none against mine.
Normally it is best to evade with War Machines but of course there may be the odd occasion where one may elect to stand with them.
But if it stands ground... Does it get hit on swords&ldrs as well?
And if it is forced to retreat by rolling 2 flags... Does it move out of the board.
And if HWM still stays does it battle back?
Sorry for the confusion.. and thanks in advance for the clarification
