Played it twice (with Mark) and i think, this one is a good one, to introduce/learn the epic rules.
Comparative less units, and units/rules, which should be known from the basic game.
So you can concentrate you for the epic rules, and it´s still a lot to lookup (most the many combinations/rules with the TC´s).

We played each games in about 3-3,5 hrs, so this is reasonable as a 2-player epic game.

My dice are the hell!

Played this yesterday 3 on 3 the British won 13-10. The French used the grenadiers to great effect driving killing many British and were poised to enter the town of Vimeiro and held Ventosa till the very end when a spirited British attack regained the town. This attack on Ventosa won the game by flipping the score by four points. Also of note two French leaders were killed while leading their units after only suffering light casualties.

Played today for a French victory 13 to 11. Nine units eliminated on each side but the control of two Vimeiro hexes gave the French the victory. It was a one vs. one battle that took a bit more than 2 hours. We really enjoyed it.
