I have played it yesterday and despite all the efforts as Spartans I just could not move through the mass of Macedonians - especially after clever play of Move-Fire-Move which positioned AUX before HI. It finished 5-7:
2 solitaire with both sides winning once. The Macedonians won the first 7 - 3, while the Spartans took the second, 7 - 4. Not so much the first game, but in the second, the Spartans did much damage from the hilltops. Perhaps, one of keys to victory from either side as controls the hilltops.
