A 7-1 victory to the Romans. Much more manoeuvring than the previous game with Pyrrhus intent on advancing his phalanx and medium infantry with the elephant in support. The Romans moved units this way & that to ensure the line was intact and Triarii moved in support. Some velites killed the elephant despite the heroic sacrifice of one unit. The Roman line went in with the triarii having replaced some medium foot who had been shot up. This was decisive. Two phalanxes and a medium foot unit were destroyed on impact, the other phalanx and medium unit left with 3 hits each - ouch. The entire line was destroyed next turn with both Roman triarii units surviving with their last block each intact. Pyrrhus was killed with his troops to complete the rout. Rome survives and the Epirote army returned to Tarantum in tatters, with most of its crack infantry dead or prisoner.
