"You like movies about gladiators?"
Okay, it's an oft heard quote, but still a classic, to me anyway. So, this is something I've neglected to see to fruition for far too long. In fact, the excellent Hotz ArtWorks Arena hex game mat has been sitting in a closet for close to three years without ever being bloodied. While toying with the idea of hosting a smallish game at our big con, Enfilade!, in May, yet another search for gladiator rules was made. Not sure why I hadn't noticed Arena Games' Gladiatorial Combat before, but a quick review was made and the $10 USD pdf was purchased. This set has been around for some time, and I think I once played a version of it with robots a buddy hosted a few years ago. It's seems perfect for a con where players should easily grasp the rules with a QRS and Combat stat sheet.
