Strange scenario this one. Why would the Spartans leave the defensive wall? The Persians simply fire their (relatively) ineffective range combat troops at them and the game is a bit boring. Both sides seem to simply wait for the flanking attack to get the battle started.

Hang on, isn't that what actually happened?

Perhaps a time limit should be applied to encourage the Persian infantry forward?

Better yet, if Sparta gets \"mounted charge\", play it and wipe out the front rank of Persian auxilia! With the right cards, the Spartans can juggernaut across the map and destroy the Persians in an open fight. They don't need the wall!

We've been playing yesterday :
The score :
10 - 6
10 - 9
The Persians won the 2 games.
Greeks have to leave the wall to smash the Persians.
If they stand and wait, the Persians only have to shoot with their light troops to weak the hoplites.
A line of hoplites advancing with a mounted charge will cause great damages against persian auxilia troops...

Accounts of the battle do describe the Spartans attacking forward from the wall.

I've been reading a report on this scenario on BGG - www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/776112/ther...e-middle-gate-480-bc

I just want to clarify that the Passage through the Hills rule is triggered by playing any Leadership card and not just the Leadership in Any Section or Right Section cards?

I guess the reasoning is to ensure a high chance that the Persians will be able to outflank the Spartan positions during the game.

what happen if 2 or 3 greek units occupies the broken ground base line hexes, for example the A and LS, or Demophilus.

\"\"and place them on vacant Greek broken ground baseline hexes\"\"

Only Hydarnes can go through the hills.
Imagine is a path of NO RETURN for the persians.
Imagine greeks units cant use the path.

Just to clarify, can any Leader card be played by the Persians to trigger the flank marching special rule or only Inspired Right Leadership on the / Any Section?
