Game 1
TTK (Mac.) 6:1 Azcat (Greek)

Game 2
TTK (Greek) 2:6 Azcat (Mac.)

In both parties, Alex Macedonian (due to infancy) and Silver Shields (due to cultural peculiarities) did not take part in the battle. Everything was decided by the phalanx in the center and on the right by Philip II and Epaminondas. Invariably in favor of Macedonian weapons.

Thank Greg for playing!

Busy time here, so I will not be able to play my match vs toganalper till July 5th at the earliest.

So looking ahead, I should be available any day from Jul 5 to July 12 from 8am on (EDT / NY time).

So, if my opponent can let me know what day / time is best for him, I will get back to him on this ASAP.

Game 1

Talliopharoah (Macedonian) 4 banners

Gonzo (Greek) 6 banners

First die roll of game, arrow in Phillip's eye. Luck never got better for Travis. Greeks had good dice, esp on the critical rolls. Only 1 activation for Travis on Spartacus. Greeks ended game on Clash of Shields with 4 units in contact. Last Macedonian VP was another leader.

Game 2

Talliopharoah (Greek) 1 banners

Gonzo (Macedonian) 6 banners

Perfect cards for Macedonians included Mv-fire-Mv to start game, 2 line commands, Hvy troops and Double time. Five turns. Two leadership anywhere cards were never played. All Travis had were move left flank. Epanimondas held him off there and Phillip destroyed the Greek center. Travis lost another leader in this one.

Thanks to Travis bearing with this extreme luck with good cheer!

Game 1
RiverWanderer  (Macedonian) # 6
Soul1st (Greek) # 1
Confident Hoplites soon formed up and made an imposing assault against the Macedonian right. Macedonian heavy infantry countered the move and, aided by a First Strike, sent the Greeks reeling back, worse from the uneven melees. From there the Macedonians had the initiative and a late attack by Alexander's Companion cavalry helped to complete their victory.

An early and unremitting clash of the main infantry forces, which resolved the game quickly.

Game 2
Soul1st  (Macedonian) # 4
RiverWanderer (Greek) # 6
The initial skirmishing soon gave way to a Macedonian advance in the centre, with a spearhead of heavy infantry double-timing into the vulnerable Greek line. The coordinated battles soon claimed banners but enough of the Greek formation survived to give a riposte, gradually causing the Macedonians to fall back and consolidate with reinforcements from their left flank. Both sides by now had weakened units, hoping to survive the next attack and get another chance to hit back or escape. The Greek force tended towards their left, where Macedonians were weaker and less of a threat. At banners 4:5 to the Greeks, Alexander at last emerged with his companions on the hunt for lone Greek units.  Just in time for the Greeks, a lucky shot from their Light Infantry, caught Epaminondas and denied Alexander his chance.

This game had more cut and thrust but again Alexander was late to the fray and most of the action was in the left and centre.

Thanks to my opponent, Twan (Soul1st).

Round 4 Game 1
Steve T Macedonians 6
Andygor Greeks 4
After initial ineffective missile fire, Alexander’s cavalry attacked trapped Greek LI to little effect, but the LI battle back followed by the hoplite attack destroyed one of the companion units (despite evasion) 0-1. The infantry lines approached, with the Macedonian phalanx attacking first at the double, now with Alexander attached. Both he and Chares died in the melee, with heavy casualties on both sides in a tough battle – but the Macedonian phalanx (2 HI units destroyed, 2 badly damaged) overcame the Greek hoplites (3 MI destroyed) and auxila (2 destroyed).
Thanks to Andre for a tense and tough first game!
