Play Report: As noted previously, this is a replay of 1st Mantinea with Lost Battles. Even when playing it properly, the result was still basically the same, with the Argives scoring the victory, in roughly similar fashion, even though they got routed from the field. However, the Argives did a lot of damage to the Spartans. The dice really favored them, giving them lots of command points and lots of successful attacks. So, I'm not sure that tactics had that much to do with it, but I do find it interesting that the Spartans can't overcome the handicap to score a game victory.

The game did play much smoother this time, though, and I was surprised at how fast the collapse can come when you roll a low number for morale. The long list of combat modifiers is still taking a while to get used to, but things are moving a bit faster. I think I'm ready to tackle another scenario.
