6-4 Byzantine victory. I was the Sassanids and things started out well with a good flank attack and mounted charge on the Byzantine left. He sacrificed his SHBC to halt it, and I was 4-1 ahead at that point and it looked like his flank was crumbling. At which point I ran out of right flank cards, and he managed to form a semblance of a blocking force with a line command. I then overextended myself on my left flank, and Belisarius managed to cut off two units and then chase down some more, and get a couple of VP with Scout cards. Close and fun game.

Byzanzine victory 6-2.
On the Roman left, some good mix of infantry onslaughts and cavalry encirlement manoeuvers had the best over the Persian medium cavalry.
In the center, the Byzantine cavalry dared to pentrate the hills and, helped by the stature advantage of the horses, smashed the Sassanid Auxiliae.
Byzantines won their first banner by using a Scout card - see scenario special rule.
Even though they lost quite heavily, I think that the Persians had a good chance to win.
I used the CDG Solo system: as CCM works in a quite similar way than CCA, adaptation from the CCA card was easy.
That said, GMT just put on preorder a CDG Solo system II, which will include CCM.

My wife and I have played this scenario a half dozen times and it splits 50 50.
We are still experimenting with what are the most effective tactics to use because of the damn hill.
