Troops were laid out before we arrived. After a brief historical commentary and troop orientation, we dove into the game. Terry and Kim commanded the Persians while Allen and myself commanded the Macedonians.
Battleground was featureless so nothing to slow down or stop Darius' chariots. With the Macedonian pike in echelon and their slow pace, it might be awhile before the phalanx will be in position to participate.
