This scenario depends on whether Darius can pull off an envelop-and-crush with the numerically superior Persians befor Alexander punches his heavies straight through, shattering the required number of units on the way.
This one is well balanced; Darius being 2 command cards down compensates nicely for his numbers advantage. The Macedonians better pray he doesn't get a couple of early Line Commands, though; that could seriously constrain Alexander's room to maneuver.

That was devastating scenario for my Persians - Macedonians started with moves in center and Darken The Sky, which really pissed my elephants - they of course tramped two units behind them. Lack of cards to do anything, companions ignoring XSW and Alexander giving additional dice - that is receipt for disaster:) 7-0 to Alexander:

2 solitaire games with both sides winning by the score of 7 - 4. In the second game, the elephant for the Persians led a charmed life in that several times it escaped damage. It caused heavy damage to the Macedonian's heavies, and was a major contributor in the Persian victory.
