JD68 Sparta (272 BC) seems extremely random. If we want to play it, I suggest to change the reinforcement rules by postulating that Spartan reinforcements arrive in predetermined turns, the third and seventh for instance.
I concur to the extent that Sparta isn't a good tournament scenario. I think it might be too troublesome to try and modify.
With 12 players, and therefore needing 8 scenarios, I've widened the scope to bring in 3 scenarios from a concurrent time period, the Celtic invasion of Greece. They have the Celtic (Barbarian) army facing up the Greeks, a match up I can't recall other scenarios I've played.
Just waiting for a new Sub-category and we can begin
