The audience is jubilant, the arena is full to the very last place, and already the fearless gladiators enter the arena to face other gladiators and various wild animals.
In the clash of the gladiators, the players assemble teams of gladiators to do battle in the arena. Only the strongest and smartest teams will survive. Although dice are used to resolve the battles, it is the make-up of the teams that is most important. The net casters are important for their ability to neutralize opposing gladiators. The spear holders are the fastest gladiators and determine how many dice the team rolls in battle. The swordsmen are important for their ability to protect the team from simple hits. Finally, the prong bearer is important as he can enable a team to re-roll the dice to try to improve the result. Beware, however, the second roll is the one that counts, even if it is not as good as the first, so players should not get too greedy.
Thus, the battles range from round to round with successful teams taking ever more space in the arena -- at the end, only the gladiators of the strongest player remain.
Clash of the Gladiators -- a fast-paced game of wits and chance for the prize of the emperor's wealth!
