Game 1
Mike (scipio1zama) Slave Army 6 banners (lost 20 blocks) vs Michal (mk20336) Romans 3 banners (lost 25 blocks)

The Roman's initial 2 moves saw the cavalry advance up on their right, especially the MC, which completely disrupted Spartacus’ plans (I felt I had to protect my LC from being run off the board.) However, the Romans did not attack – so I did, using a Double Time card, and managed to eliminate one MC and damage the other. He finally attacked me, with little effect, then I attacked him using a Line Command for just four units and eliminated an Auxilia. He switched focus to his left and eliminated one of my LI, but I attacked back using a Medium Troops card and eliminated 2 of his MI – one of them with a single roll of a blue triangle and 3 crossed swords! His Flank Attack got my 1-block MI on his left, but did little damage on the right. I needed 2 more banners, so I surrounded his advanced MI w/leader on his left and got the MI, but the attached leader managed to escape. Then he switched to the Roman right and eliminated a LI, but I used another Line Command to move just 4 units in the center and take out a MI unit that could not retreat, for the win. He and I were both amazed with my rolls, less so with his.

Game 2
Michal (mk20336) Slave Army 6 banners (lost 22 blocks) vs Mike (scipio1zama) Romans 4 banners (lost 28 blocks)

Game 2 had Michal as the Slave Army and me as the Romans. After some lengthy skirmishing and pot-shots, and having gotten rid of some dross from my hand, I had moved my entire MI line, including the leaders, 2 hexes away from the hills on my left flank. I would have preferred he attack, but I was sitting there with 2 Line Commands, Double Time, Medium Troops AND Clash of Arms. His units were not all in position yet, so in I went. Wwellll…... I damaged a couple of units, killed one and drove a couple of LI to his edge of the board, BUT he came back with Medium Troops, and about the same time his die rolling improved considerably. When the smoke had cleared (dust, actually), I was down 4-1, and there were only 2 of my units next to his for my Clash of Arms card to take advantage of. D**N those hills! I did eliminate one of his MI, but the outlook wasn’t great for the Romans. Then he played the “I am Spartacus” card. – I thought I was toast. Fortunately for me, he was only able to activate 3 units. Still, he launched a nice attack in the center with 3 Warriors and did some considerable damage – but didn’t eliminate anyone. The handwriting was on the wall, but I realized I didn’t need to win the game to win the match – I just needed to get 2 more banners. So I used my Double Time to march a contingent on my left flank. I took out a 2-block LI sitting on the map edge (with 2 green dots – the retreat rule did not come into effect.) and then took out a 1-block Auxilia sitting on a hill. His next turn won him the game, 6-4 - but the match was mine. A very near-run thing, both games tense and exciting. I always seemed to have the cards I needed – and that made the difference against a very skilled opponent.

Game 1:
Gonzo Roman 5 banners, BrentS Slave 6 banners

Exciting tense game with much maneuvering on Roman right flank with Roman cav that amounted to nothing in the end. Slave warrior charge in the middle mixed it up with outcome in doubt unti9l the end.

Game 2 BrentS Roman 3 banners, Gonzo Slave 6 banners.
Romans again pressed with their Right flank, rolling double ldr on left Slave general. Pushed to limit with losses both sides. Slave misile units rolled double hits twice on 2 point Roman cavs. Finally Roman aux with leader facing 5 slave troops with total of 7 steps. Rolled for Rally and got nothing. Slave remnants overwhelmed him and Slave attck on Right got final two banners. Another tens game with a quality class opponent.

Final Gonzo 11 banners, BrentS 9 banners.

Game 1
Cavie(Slaves) 6 Banners won/19 blocks lost VS Carthage(Romans) 4 Banners won/26 blocks lost

Slaves managed to get some good ranged hits in and then avoid the Roman advance. A leader kill helped keep the advantage to the Slaves to lead to their victory.

Game 2
Cavie(Romans) 6 Banners won/24 blocks lost VS Carthage(Romans) 4 Banners won/38 blocks lost

Slaves tried to organize and call upon their leader with "I Am Spartacus" but could not get quite as much of surge going as they hoped. As the Romans waited for the Slaves to come from the hills they were able to withstand the charge and fight back to take advantage and eventually secure their win.

(Game 2 log file is corrupted - final game save file is available.)
