For a viable 2 player game:
SETUP: Reduce total available Swordsmen to 17, and 5 of each of the rest.
PLAY: The current Attacking team (group, holder) may remove one of their own gladiators from the game before they move/attack (in order to reduce a team of 4 to a team of 3, thus allowing that team to move).
Setup Comment: The reduced setup pool will now provide some angst on choosing team members, but still allow enough gladiators to go around. Some gladiator types will be completely snarfed up, depending on your style of play.
Play Comment: There's nothing worse than having a great team stuck somewhere unable to move because they are at full strength (likely pinned down by an animal). This is even 'more worse' in a 2 player game. So a 'guy' stays behind to deal with the threat; the main team is reduced in strength but can now go forth in a blaze of glory as befits a Gladiator.
We just wanna fight and enjoy this addictive game. I ain't no punk.
