Arena Games

Arena Games, Gladiatorial Combat, simulates Roman gladiator Combat. Combat can be an individual one on one fight between two gladiators, a fight between 2 or more gladiators per side, or gladiators against wild beasts.

The game is realistic, yet simple and is ideal for convention play. It can accommodate up to 12 players with a minimum amount of management. It was awarded "Best Ancients Game" at FALL IN, and high praise from all who have played it.

Man to man skirmish. 1 Hex = 3-4 feet across. Intended for 25mm figures, although with a smaller or larger hex grid, 15mm or 54 mm figures can be used.
– publisher's website
Figures should be mounted separately on a single base. Any shape of base can be used, although "hex shaped" is the best with each figure mounted to face a hex-side. For ease of play the "front" of the figure base should be marked.
