JD13 Lysimacheia (277 BC) - the Special rule I interpret to mean, the defender cannot ignore a sword or flag because of the camp.
The occupant of the unfortified camp must still roll one fewer battle dice than usual when it battles.
JD14 Macedonia (279 BC) - ignore optional rule, leader is used as normal
JD20 Thermopylae (279 BC) - ignore the draw condition, first to 6 banners wins

Carthage used Cavalry to open the battle. Epirote was able to counter these attacks and take the lead. When Epirotes moved forward on their left flank, Carthage was able to counterattack to take the lead and then attack the center to end the battle.

This was a very close, and tense battle, it took place almost entirely on the right and left flanks, the Carthaginians managed to kill both elephants and two cav and three heavies for the win, but one more play and the Epirotes would have taken the field....
