Saturday 26th August: Time of Crisis   Leave a comment

We played again. Another great game. Mike took an early lead with a strong power base around Gallia Hispania. Phil and Alex were in Asia and Egypt with DARRYL in Macedonia. Hordes of Nomads and Sassanids poured out giving Phil and Alex a hard time. Then two pretenders in Egypt and Syria. The northern barbarians either massed or poured into Asia.

Phil took out the two pretenders giving Mike a slight chance to become emperor but he failed the roll on three dice. Then Phil took his chance and succeeded. Unfortunately the Nomads reappeared to distract his forces just at that moment and Mike marched into Africa. Fortunately Phil held him off and survived the Nomads and Persians just. Meanwhile Alex lost all control in Galatia Asia but eventually defeated the Persians and Goths so was keeping pace with VP but lacked strong cards.

Darryl marched on Rome and occupied the capital. This drained the emperors support but he lasted longer than Phil could have imagined thus garnering strong VP. Mike decided to give up on the whole invasion and the empire and marched home to form his own break away nation. Darryl deposed Phil only to find Mike as a Pretender and this meant he gained less from the post but as he said at least he was emperor. Phil finally was able to bring the strong cards into play from his time as emperor and gained the last few VP required to end the game at 60 and claim victory.

Another fun game.

Was great to see the emperor unopposed to see the value and to get a pretender on the map.
