Probability wise they should be able to have 2 rounds of attacks (8 dice) before a 3 speed opponent can even strike back (3 rounds versus a 2 speed gladiator e.g. Theokoles).
I just bought the game, read the rules, but couldn't play yet.
Tell me how is this even possible, because I don't understand how.
If you Move to strike Theokoles and then Attack, your turn ends after. Theokoles then Attack next and he can move after. How could you attack Theokoles 2 times, even 3 times before he can strike back like you say?
Either I'm missing something or you're playing the rules wrong.
Thanks for clarifying.
EDIT: Forget it. Figured it out by reading this other topic here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/881414/is-combat-broken.
