Carl visited once again last Friday evening with his Athenian and Spartan armies for a game. The game was played between Beth and Carl across a green plain bordered by hills and a river using Carl's preferred rules 'Field Of Glory'. Beth, playing the Spartans ignored my goading that she should rush her army forward to impale the Athenians on their spears, telling me that I should not base my suggested tactics on the '300' graphic novel and resultant movie. Instead Beth anchored her line between the hills and let the Athenians do all the rushing, eventually the Athenians unable to blunt the Spartan's spears with their innards melted away. Pausing only to salute Carl as they made their way back to their storage boxes.
