Special instructions
JD13 Lysimacheia (277 BC) - the Special rule I interpret to mean, the defender cannot ignore a sword or flag because of the camp.
The occupant of the unfortified camp must still roll one fewer battle dice than usual when it battles.

JD14 Macedonia (279 BC) - ignore optional rule, leader is used as normal
JD20 Thermopylae (279 BC) - ignore the draw condition, first to 6 banners wins

Round 6
Greg O (gottoman) Carthaginian 7 banners won 32 blocks lost
EzPickins Epirote 6 banners won 28 blocks lost

This was a very close, and tense battle, it took place almost entirely on the right and left flanks, the Carthaginians managed to kill both elephants and two cav and three heavies for the win, but one more play and the Epirotes would have taken the field....

Round 3
Greg O (gottoman) Gallic 6 banners won 22 blocks lost
Cavie Greek 4 banners won 24 blocks lost


Uncertain if we were supposed to stop if both players had 4 or 5, if so, result should be Greg O 5, Cavie 4.


Battle was a slugfest in the center, as the forces lead one to play it that way, Greg had the better luck.

Round 1
Greg O (gottoman) Antigonus 6 banners won 10 blocks lost
mantra Gallic1 banners won 24 blocks lost



Antigonus Army had two lines commands and a center leader card in the opening hand and came on strong up the middle and the Gallic force never could get any initiative to counter.

as per tournament notes, play to 6 banners for this scenario each time. Ignore the draw condition.
