Scenario on the website is a little bit different than in the saved file. We should use rules and info from the saved file, isn’t it?

Yes, I modified the scenario a bit
1. Replaced Med Infantry with Med Hoplites
2. Replaced Macedonian Red Cav with Blue
3. Replaced Greek LB with LS
4. Made Victory banners 7 for both
5. Added Greek camp and made it worth a Victory Banner to boost Greek prospects.

Game 1
Mark McG (Macedonians): 3
TTK (Greeks): 7

Quite a long match with the Macedonian cavalry charging early and ultimately being unsuccessful, though took a few banners.
The real problem was the failure of the Macedonian phalanx to score any hits in combat. Flags aplenty, but failed to get hits. The Greeks laboured without that problem

Game 1
Mark McG (Greeks): 7
TTK (Macedonians): 3

Faster game, with the Thessalonican cavalry charging early and doing a good trade. The Macedonian cavalry was quite hapless, and the majority of the action was on the Greek left. Here the Macedonians pressed quite hard, and a Greek double time had the chance to steal a win, but in the end settled for the tie.

Game 1
toganalper (Macedonian) - 7
Tomek (Greek) - 5

A funky game with a lot of maneuvering and heaps of arrows flying both directions. At the end the Macedonians won the day.

Game2
Tomek (Macedonians) - 7
toganalper (Greek) - 5

The second battle was more streamlined old fashioned hoplite battle decided on the right flank. Despite the overwhelming might of the phalanx it was surprisingly hard victory for Antipater.

Round 3: Crannon

Travis (Macedonian) 7 banners, Scipio1Zama (Greek) 5 banners

A very aggressive approach by my opponent should have paid more dividends, but the dice favored me in this one. The Thessalian cavalry tried to rush my right, but after some poor rolls, the threat was largely neutralized. The game then became a medley of infantry clashes, where the heavy Macedonian units were able to use their dice advantage accordingly. A very exciting game for sure.

Travis (Greek) 7 banners, Scipio1Zama (Macedonian) 5 banners

Greek ranged marksmanship was excellent early, and kept the Macedonians at bay long enough to allow two consecutive plays of Mounted Charge, which were used to momentarily pierce the center, and then disrupt the Macedonian right. These actions gave the Greeks time to reform their lines and plan their final assault to gain the 7th banner. After some early almost throwaway command cards, the Greek hand was fantastic at the end of the game.

A great revision of the scenario, and always fun to match up against Mike, a fun opponent.
