Played this last night with Master Chief. I was Theban and he was the Spartans. Here's an AAR on the game.
An interesting smaller scenario that produced an intriguing game. Theban started with "Mounted Charge" by the 3 medium cav that targeted the 2 Spartan Light infantry. Hoped to pick up 2 quick banners. The result was 2 eliminated blocks for the Spartan infantry and a one block loss for the Theban horse. A quick counter, "Order 4 Units Left" by the Spartans had 1 Theban medium cav eliminated (0-1). Second turn had the Thebans pressing their cav attack against the light inf which eliminated it and evened the score (1-1). Then a number of turns was spent by both sides pulling back forward units and manoeuvring their troops into lines for a big push. Each side made the odd Ranged attack or small CC that raised the score to 2-2. The Spartans pulled back their whole line and waited while the Thebans slowly edged forward. Then a 'Line Command' card advanced the whole Theban line that pitched it into CC with half of the Spartan line. It cost the Spartan a light and a medium unit along with a leader (double helmets on the ldr casualty DR) and it was 5-2 to the Thebans. The Spartan then thought for a while to play 'Counterattack' and advanced what was left of their phalanx (2 heavies each with a leader and 2 mediums) at the Theban line. Took out the 3 Theban heavies to even the score (5-5). The Theban ldr managed to survive all this and it finally came down to an 'Order 2 units Left' card from the Theban to try and take out the last block from a Spartan heavy unit that survived the previous carnage. The Light infantry missed with their spears so the one remaining Theban Med cav charged and rolled a red square (and a sword) to take the game by the narrowest of margins (6-5). Cannot ask for better than that.

This was a lot of fun. It was very interesting how the middle game was just positioning and recovering from the little opening gambits. I don't think any of my games so far have had such a long period of positioning.

When I do a browser Save Image As on the map, I get a 78KB file, which is low res.
Is there a way to get a higher res version of the map and/or a unit type list?
Thanks,
Ralph

Hi SimSportPlyr,
I'm sorry for the late reply.
I've just uploaded a bigger quality map picture.
What do you think about it?
Sadly all pictures have to be exported manually (1 by 1) to higher quality and then bulk updated on website.
If you guys think it's worth the pain... I'll plan this update for the months to come.
Let me know.
Regards
Ale

Ale -
I much prefer the higher-quality image. Thank you so much!
I cannot say whether it is worth the effort to upload other, higher-res images, since it's not my effort.
Regards,
Ralph

2 solitaire games with the Spartans winning both 6 -3, and 6 -0. While the first game was fairly even, the second was a complete rout. The Spartan right flank completely dominated. 2 rolls taking out 2 complete Theban units certainly played a big part in the game.

A balanced scenario.
