Mare Nostrum: Final Game

Ptolemy & Rome vs. Antagonids & Sparta

Sixth and final round of our Campaign was to be played in 4 player team games. I wanted to have a grande finale with bigger battles!

My ally was Risto's Rome and our adversaries were Marko's Antagonids and Mikko's Sparta. I had to use all of my cunning to get Marko, whom was leading the campaign with a very tight margin, to play against me. Even the pre-game was already furious so the game was loaded with high stakes: should either me, Marko or Mikko win with 4 campaign points, we could win the campaign (= have the largest empire).

Mare Nostrum battle report: Macedonian Successors vs. Carthago (Hail Caesar)

Former allies turned against each other!

Political life in ancient Mediterranean can be treacherous! Once all other challenges for our Mare Nostrum Campaign were done, I was left only one option: to challenge my former ally Carthago!
(The word on the street was saying, that maybe Ptolemy wasn't happy with the performance of this ally, or even, that being allied had only been a smoke screen..., who knows?)

 The game we played was a cityfight. Read more to find out how it went? (WIP)

Our Helsinki based gaming club "Nopat & Taktiikka" (= Dice & tactics) moved to new premises in to a suburb (Malminkartano) in northern Helsinki.

Key benefits of the new premises are:

  • One open space
  • Working air conditioning and window, that can be opened
  • Full 4G coverage in the area
  • Very near to a local train stop - some 15 min. from down town Helsinki

Mare Nostrum - Armies on Parade

Mare Nostrum - Armies on Parade

Our Campaign's winners are decided as follows:

First place: the player that had most fun (since, that's hard to measure, I think I'll convert that to the most pleasant opponent to play with and the most easiest participant to organize a campaign with)

Second place:  the player that painted most new miniatures for the campaign

Third place: the player, that has the biggest empire in the end of the campaign

Here's a link ty my onedrive with images of stuff I've buildt & painted for the campaign:

Comments are most welcome!
