How Does a Phalanx Destroy a Battleship?

On the far side of the world
In lush lands untamed by modern empires
My lookout spots a mighty phalanx
Armed with shield and spear
My officers and I gather on deck
To marvel at this vision of times past
We laugh as the barbarians hurl spears from the beach
Most fall short, crashing into the seas
But one, carried by an ill wind,
Plugs an exhaust port
And kaboom

A barracks. City walls. Experience from many battles. Fortified.

Add a really good roll for the phalanx and a really bad roll for the battle ship and civilization just doesn't make sense sometimes.

The game math makes it possible.
