Game 1
Mark McG (Macedonians): 7
EZ Pickens (Spartans): 1

Fortunate to have ample time to bring the Macedonian might together, and after some cavalry sparing on the Right eventually yielded 1 banner for the Spartan MC, and a bit of desultory missile fire on the Left, the Macedonian machine kicked into gear with a huge Line Command and powered through the Spartan defenders. Heavy Infantry with leaders are NASTY!

Game 2
Mark McG (Spartans): 7
EZ Pickens (Macedonians): 4

Having observed in the first game the importance of the Spartans keeping the initiative, and blessed with a Double Time card in the initial draw, I sent the Hoplites in to do their best and bring me home 2 banners. In the event they sold their lives for more than that, 3 banners and gaping hole in the Macedonian line. A momentary disaster with Spartacus ordering NO units, but John didn't have great cards. From there I had a series of Order Light and Move-Fire-Move cards that rolled well, routing the Macedonian LC with a flag, and trapping Light units on the Left.

I was pretty fortunate with my combat rolls in both matches, which is always a joy! All up both matches finished in 2 hours.

Looking for a cheap tactical advantage on hills, I made the big strategic mistake of splitting the Spartan line into two pieces. Caspar exploited my weakness with an effective assault with heavy and medium infantry in his center-left. My Spartans fought bravely, but at the end paid their numerical inferiority.

Antipater was killed by 1d Spartan range attack in the very first round. After the initial shock, the Macedonians recovered organizing a compact formation around the remaining nameless leader and advancing in the center. Caspar moved the hoplites forward but their attack was quite ineffective, giving me the opportunity of a devastating Clash of Shield. The lack of cards in the center impaired Spartan reactions while Macedonians chewed the enemy lines one piece at a time. The death of Aegis III ended the game.

Guys watching a couple of games online I've noticed that there is a bit of confusion about this point so maybe it is better to remind it here: the Macedonian medium infantry units are NOT hoplites in this scenario. You can recognize them from the image. See here

Round 4 scipio1zama vs stormwalker

Match 2
stormwalker (Macedonian): 7 banners
scipio1zama (Spartan): 4 banners

This battle took us only one hour to finish. The main part of hostilities began with the Spartans advancing "on the double" at the Macedonian line with a great deal of initial success. However, the Macedonian counter attack cost the Spartans three banners. With a subsequent well played Mounted Charge the Spartans easily managed to tie the score. But then the Spartans quite unfortunately lost another medium unit together with its leader due to a failed attack on a Macedonian AUX unit. This mishap lead to a swift Macedonian victory.

Many thanks to Mike for playing!

also, the Hoplites are marked "MH" in VASSAL, and the Medium Infantry just "M"
should be easy to distinguish

Game 2 for Armada01 and Greg O
Greg O - Sparta 7 banners
Armada01 - Macedonia 3

This one was tougher than the final result, the Spartans basically surged in to the center and battled off the Macedonians hitting them from the left and then the right. The dice favored the Spartans, and some decent cards as well. In the end a Spartan LC survived a brutal series of attacks, stopping the momentum from shifting and the Spartans took out the Macedonian MC for the victory.
