Historical Background
After the Theban victory at the battle of Haliartus, Athens, Thebes, Corinth and Argos joined together in an anti-Spartan alliance. Aristodemus was sent north to challenge the alliance and the two armies met near the dry riverbed of Nemea. The Spartan army fielded about 18,000 Hoplites and lined up with the Spartans on the right and their Peloponnesian allies on the left. The coalition forces were made up of about the same number of Hoplites with the Athenians opposite the Spartans, while the Boeotians were on the right of the coalition line. As the lines advanced, both lines shifted to the right and when the two met each line extended past the opponent’s left flank, which meant that both right flanks overlapped the enemy line and were victorious. The Spartans, instead of pursuing the Athenians, quickly turned to the center and defeated the other coalition forces one by one.

The Spartans advanced, the Greeks replied with two mounted charges and it was all over after 4 turns with a Greek 5-0 whitewash. We'll see if the Spartans can do better in the return fight.

Played recently with stormwalker as part of Spartan Hegemony campaign (10 scenarios, so far 5 played).
This is straightforward Hoplite battle, where win can be decided by better card or roll. Again, Spartans had to swallow minimal defeat.
