Historical Background
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Willows
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

War Council

Goths
Leader: Fritigern
5 Command Cards      
Move First

Roman Army
Leader: Richomer
5 Command Cards

Victory
6 Banners

Special Rules
Imperial Legions rule is in effect for Romans.

Wagon Laager rule is in effect for the Barbarians.

A Roman unit that occupies an enemy camp hex at the start of the Roman player's turn, may remove  the camp hex and gain 1 Victory Banners that cannot be lost. Remove the camp hex before playing a Command card.

(Optional rule) At the beginning of each player's turn , roll 2 dices. If the results are same on both dices (eg. two green, two flags, etc.) the sunset progresses.  Put a block (eg. a special block) on board edge. When 3 blocks are on the edge of the board and no player  has won yet, the game stops immediately in a draw (historical result).

Played this twice, Romans won both times. Once being ultra aggressive with the center and the second time being patient while working the flanks.
