Event Title: Gladitorii y Mort! - Games of the Roman Arena (aka. "Hey... you ate my lion!")
Event Description:
Welcome to Rome, center of the civilized world. Crowds flock to the Coliseum for a day of Gladitorii y Mort. The sun is blazing down on the tiers of the arena, which are filling
with excited spectators. The vast crowd is eagerly expecting a great day’s sport and taking in copious amounts of food and wine.

For the gladiators imprisoned in hot and humid cells below, it is an entirely different scene. The air is heavy with sweat and fear. The sounds of wild animals add to the
confusion of novice fighters and exacerbates the dread that they feel for the carnage to come. The guards are making bets among themselves, looking at the array of humanity
wondering if their money has been spent prudently.  

A fanfare of trumpets silences the crowd. The emperor takes his place along with his hangers on. Two men clad in bronze and leather armor emerge onto the scorched sand of
the arena. Let the games begin!

YOU are the lanista. The proud owner of one of the finest gladiatorial schools in Rome. The main purpose of your school is to prod the goddess Fortuna to smile upon you and
your household. The death and carnage are the means to the end…a tidy profit and amassing more fortune at the end of the day!

Will Fortuna be at your side? Will your gladatorii bring you riches or leave YOU in the arena to pay your debts at the end of the day.

Who will be the Champion of Rome? Think you have what it takes? Sign up and let’s find out!

Full 28mm Steve Barber Miniatures arena with screaming crowd, multiple styles of gladiators. This game has not been seen at a convention in years. You should play this game.

No rules lawyers…this is not a serious game! (Texi says: "Horn them thar Rules Lawyers!"

Event Title: Fight for The Lion - Thermopylae 480 B.C.
Event Descripton:
"And now there arose a fierce struggle between Persians and Lacedaemonians over the body of Leonidas, in which Greeks four times drove back the enemy, and at last by
their great bravery succeeded in bearing off the body. This combat was scarcely ended when Persians with Ephialtes approached; and Greeks, informed that they drew nigh,
made a change in the manner of their fighting. Drawing back into the narrowest part of the pass, and retreating even behind the cross wall, they posted themselves upon a
hillock, where they stood all drawn up together in one close body, except only the Thebans. Here they defended themselves to the last, such as still had swords using them, and
the others resisting with their hands and teeth; till the barbarians, who in part had pulled down the wall and attacked them in front, in part had gone round and now encircled
them upon every side, overwhelmed and buried the remnant which was left beneath showers of missile weapons." Heroditus
