Saturday 19th August : Time of Crisis   Leave a comment

Another fantastic success for Mike in bringing this great new game to the table. Phil, Alex and Darryl played against him. Phil got off to a good start and managed to break away into a convincing lead.

However he became infuriated when Mike crowned himself emperor in Italian and abandoned his hard fought for province of Africa to take his place. He successfully deposed him on the second attempt after rolling too many ones on the first. See picture below when scored only three hits of four required. He then fell foul of mobs, barbarians and Darryl who all attacked him and lost support of the senate and his provinces. Mike had created a nice power base around Egypt and also had a very strong brittania province which he successfully held from Alex. Darryl scored huge amounts of GPs from his military prowess defending Pannonia and Macedonia. Alex held on to a fairly quiet and civilised Gaul and Spain but failed to oust Mike from Britain.

Phil was about to make a come back and was still holding on to a good lead when time stopped play. A victory of sorts but it was really only a learning game. Verdict was that this was a fantastic game that certainly deserves to make it back to the table.
