Match 1
beckerdo (Volscian) 6 banners won
Chrispy (Roman) 4 banners won

This was a very even battle. It was tied at 2-2, 3-3, and 4-4. Lots of flank battles. Eventually Volscians were able to withdraw the wounded and attack on the stronger left flanks to win 6-4.

Match 2
Chrispy (Volscian) 2 banners won
beckerdo (Roman) 6 banners won

As Romans, I tried to play my worst cards, lose a unit, and get Camillius to wake up. Chrispy had a line card and took advantage and went ahead 2 banners to 0. Luckily the card count change allowed the Romans to attack with good dice to win.

I enjoyed playing with Chrispy, a good player.

Match 1
Lornlane (Volscian) 3 banners won — scipio1zama (Roman) 6 banners won

The skirmish continued for the first few turns, but my troops were consumed with impatience in the face of old enemies. And they launched an unprepared attack. The Romans, thanks to the magnificent maneuvers of their commander, broke up the line and began to destroy the scattered detachments. The excellent control of the opponent and my vehemence left no chance of victory.

Match 2
scipio1zama (Volscian) 2 banners won — Lornlane (Roman) 6 banners won

The gods favored the Romans, good cards came and they had a chance to strike a quick and merciless blow. The Volsci were stunned, but fought to the last.

Round 3 Game 1stephent, Volscian, 6 banners, 19 blocks lostBoredbeyondbelief, Roman, 4 banners, 28 blocks lostThe Romans double timed forward with the legions in the centre, resulting in a chaotic and bloody central melee with the loss of four banners each over several turns. Then a band of Volscian warriors and cavalry attacked the isolated Roman right flank light infantry and medium cavalry, scoring the winning two banners. The game could have gone the other way if there had been one more move for Rome.
Round 3 Game 2Boredbeyondbelief, Volscian, 6 banners, 31 blocks loststephent, Roman, 5 banners, 25 blocks lostMy Romans prepared the advance with line advance and then the legions double timed forward, and with the help of poor Volscian cards and dice (but a rally that ordered no Romans!), were ahead 2-5, but with many Roman units down to 1 or 2 blocks. Over-confident, I then threw away a Roman 1 block HI that was destroyed in the battle back after bravely attacking a supported Volscian Auxila (3-5). At this point the cavalry were ordered forward to mop up. The Volscians struck first, destroying a one block Roman MI (4-5). The two block Roman cavalry, led by Furius, rode into the Volscian rear and attacked a one block Volscian Auxila – and were hit by First Strike and destroyed, with Furius dying at the head of his troops (6-4).Thanks to Eric for two fun games, and for getting up at 5am so we could play our match before he went away.

Game 1
RiverWanderer (Volscian) 6 banners
GomJabbar (Roman) 5 banners

The Romans started with a volley from the Lights and then they retreated back behind their Medium lines. Volscian followed up with bold advance on their right but the Romans countered with their Medium infantry with Furius. But the Volscian right flank advance seemed like a feint when their center crashed into the Roman Mediums pushing them back and gaining a banner. Camillus took slight notice but then went back to bed when the Romans battled back to take out an overextended Medium Cav. A back and forth battle in the middle then continued with both sides trading banners and the Romans never trailing by a banner so Camillus just sat in camp. Furius then switched to the Roman right flank (due to cards available on that flank) and pushed into the Volscian Auxilias but failed to get that last banner. The Volscian leader then left his Warrior unit and dashed across the field to meet with a Medium Infantry to deal the final blow to a weakened Roman Medium. A close battle.

Game 2
GomJabbar (Volscian) 6 banners
RiverWanderer (Roman) 4 banners

Game 2 started very similar to Game 1 with some slight ranged attacks on the flanks but then the entire middle of both sides smashed together with 3 successive Line Commands. The 3rd Line Command for the Romans was very decisive with 4 banners gained in 1 turn. With no banners for Volscian, it was looking like Camillus was going to sit back eating grapes and enjoy the carnage. But then the Volscian leader got involved with a Mounted Charge on their right. Most of the Roman units were on the right with no enemy nearby so they started shifting to the left. Volscian gained a couple of banners on their right, slowly coming back into the battle. Then turn 4 for Volscian saw themselves suddenly gain 4 banners with 3 depleted (MCwLeader,MI,W) units in a decisive last ditch effort. That was extremely lucky for Volscian when a single battle back would have been disastrous.

Done a update on the scoring, which maybe incomplete since I'm on a rather tenuous internet connection.

A week till deadline and a lot of unplayed matches. Please get them played ASAP.
