My Two Cents
Like I said in the video, I can't claim any stunning tactical genius in this one as Reece seemed to really piss off the Dice Gods recently.  He did NO DAMAGE to me over TWO TURNS.  It's hard to win when 33% of your possible output evaporates that way.

I've been struggling to figure an easy way, aside from Menchits, to deal with his snipers.  Can't say I was successful... I got really lucky in the damage I did deal to them.  I'll probably have to add those dumb Menchits.

Surprisingly happy with the way the Erebos worked out.  Not super offensive units, but they do have a great psychological effect.  He wasted more time trying to kill those than any other unit on the board.  I do miss my Apollo's, though.

Main take away here: Don't assume what you think is the center of the mat is actually the center of the mat.  My Hades was probably less than 1/16" over the line and that little bit kept me from what could have been a crushing victory.

Great game Reece!  I hope you have more statistically average luck next time!
