Romans win round one 8 - 4. Nearly all the fighting occured on Roman's left flank. Vercingetorix and his army got across the river quickly, and was making good progress, and even had Caesar down to 2 blocks. But then Caesar had 2 rolls that completely destroyed 2 medium units for the win. It had looked that the Gauls were about to destroy Caesar and the Roman left flank until those 2 fateful rolls.

Hate to ask a stupid question but does one use the special Caesar rule and Julian Legions rule in effect?

My wife and I have played this game four times and she really likes. She has played the Romans and I played the Gauls. It is a real dog fight. She (Romans) have one twice and I have one twice as the Gauls. They were all close games that could have gone either way. We did not employ the special rules for legions or Caesar. It is very balanced as is.

My suspicion is that this scenario was designed a long time ago, before Expansion 2 was released. So Julian legions and Caesar were not rules at that time.

So I'd suggest you follow Steve's advice and play it without, but including them would likely tilt the balance towards the Romans, but give a more historical game.

Great scenario, seems like it could have numerous different endings each time it is played.

We have been playing it without the special Caesar and legion rules. We played it twice today. My wife won as the Romans and I won once as the Gauls.
We played several games where my wife kept slaughtering my as the Gaul. In those game I brought up the Gaul's medium infantry as soon as I could.
I have discovered that the best strategy for the Gauls is to wear down the Romans with missal fire from the light troop the bring up the medium infantry.
