The Greek right quickly dispatched the light Persians. On the left there was a tie with the archers causing many losses on the Greek ranks. In the center the Persians devastated the Greek line and quickly routed them. But with all the units on the left gone, the Persians took too many casualties and lost 10-7, with many Greek units reamaining at one block.

Our recent Marathon game report - main actions of our game – very similar to actual historical events:
- Greek right commanded by me immediately moved forward with two double times; whoever was not able to evade was obliterated by my Heavy Infantry.
- exactly same fate awaited Persians on the other wing – quick hits, tons of causalities inflicted by my compatriot Hoplites.
- our opponent of course counter-attacks in the center; he manages to pull the result from 4-9 to 9-9; he does it despite his leader being killed at the beginning of the game!
- the last turns of the game was a Greeks chase for that 1 Victory Banner needed to defeat Persians; it was hard to get – light Persians were evading on their left and what is more, obliterated almost whole center!
- In the end timely played I am Spartacus finished the game; great play by our opponent who managed to really well defend plus do a great counter-attack; bloody battle with almost 50 blocks lost on each side.

What looked to be an easy win for the Greeks became too close to comfort after a Persian mounted charge that swept up four banners in one turn to even the game at 8-8. However, the Greek success on the flanks, and a line command of auxilia in the middle yielded the last two banners within the next turn.
