The last time we gathered Mike hosted a game where the Greeks under Pyrhus ( Mike is this correct) and supported by Latin allies did battle with the cohorts of Rome. Rome won.
But Rome being a pompous and egotistical culture were not about to let the transgressions of the Latins go unpunished. So we now have the subject of our latest game. Rome vs. the Latins.
Gamers in attendance were, our host Mike, Wendel, Bill, Ken, Jamie and myself. Mike, Ken and I were the Latins and Bill Wendel and Jamie were the Romans.
Here is a look at the troops at our disposal.
Yes about 6.5 feet of troops on each side. The above pictures are of the table before we rearranged everything to fit our tactics.
Below is the battlefield as we started turn one.
Below we have Romes reaction to the Latin first move.
Now knowing that Rome would not stand idly by while we maneuvered to our hearts content was disturbing at the least.
So we decided to carry on with our original plan and pray for a bit of luck.
On our left flank Ken was fighting a similar battle. Go Ken!
But in spite of the crushing defeat everyone had a great time! Mike as always was the gracious host and our senseless banter was non stop. Well we were entertained!
Thanks to Mike and all the players for making this another great get together. Looking forward to our next game Mike!
