We had only 5 players, so we set it up 4 to 1 so one side could expereince the Epic feel with the chain of command. The game was fairly matched, but the elephants in Eumenes' army caused huge problems for Antigonus. One elephant unit took out 4 heavy units of Antigonus in two turns. It left a huge whole in his line. However, Antigonus was able to hit a line of medium troops in the center of Eumenes and roll them up. It was back and forth. In the late game the center of both armies was spent. The game ended on the Eumenes' right flank when he got the Silver Shields into the last of Antiongus' medium infantry. The Eumenes army had the 4, and Antigonus was a sole player. The game ended 15-11 in favor of Eumenes.
Eumenes wins again in a tight 15-13 victory. Eumenes' left was cracked early, but his center moved forward with order. Antigonus pushed his right flack against the cracked left of Eumenes, but twice had his units destroyed attached to him. He also was even able to void death with an escape through enemy lines. The Silver Shields tried to push the medium infanty of Antigonus but were stopped and finally crushed, even though a rally card had brought new life back into the famous heavies. However, an elephant charge helped to break the center of Antigonus. This was followed up by general leadership in the center which finally broke the best troops of Antigonus. Eumenes wins 15-13.
Eumenes grab a 15-14 draw. The Antigonus left flank was destroyed by the Silver Shields but did amazingly well on the right flank. I think the Eumenes elephants had something bad to eat since they missed on almost every attack (even on a mounted charge into heavies). This left the elephants as easy pickings. The center was a slaughter with neither side being dominant. In short, this was a very well balanced game that spun in a counter-clockwise direction.
