Night attack against the fortifications of the plain
(gallic relief army)
Gauls vs Romans
Scenario 4: The next day, the Gallic relief army manufactured ladders and launched a night attack against the fortifications of the plain. Vercingetorix comes out of Alésia to support the attack but he is blocked by the trench and cannot act. Antoine and Trebonius repel Gallic Relief army before Vercingetorix was able to cross the trench.

-The Rivers (Brenne) is fordable (fordable river).
-Each player plays from his board edge (noted Roman or Gallic army). We turn the board so that the edge of a player matches the (lateral) side of the board and not the usual edge (see note left, center, right - (=“gauche, centre, droite”) - on the map for this scenario). 3 left hexes = left, 3 right hexes = right, 3 hexes from the center = center.
-Occupy a (Roman) camp gives one victory banner at the Gallic player at the beginning of his turn (temporary banner).
-“Campaign mod”: play the 6 scenarios in succession and note the banners to see who wins the "campaign" (of the battle of Alésia). Add up all the banners for all (6) scenarios for this.
- Replace the Carthaginians by a Gallic army (green blocks, barbarians).
