The Society of Ancients' 2016 Battle Day tackles Caesar vs Pompey at Pharsalus 48 BCE. By providing excellent historical and gaming materials for prospective participants, the SoA gave me the motivation to give this battle a try.
Under the CC:A scenario, all medium and heavy infantry can throw pila as well as increase movement allowance from one to two hexes. Moving two hexes negates both their ability to fire missiles and close combat.
Pharsalus was fought twice with the victory going to Caesar in both games. Kevin commanded Pompey in Game One while I commanded Pompey in Game Two. In Game Two with Kevin commanding Caesar, Pompey's medium cavalry wing quickly overwhelmed Caesar's cavalry on the right wing and then attacked Caesar, himself. Caesar nearly fell in battle after his attached infantry was destroyed and the great man was attacked alone. He managed to survive to triumph in a very close 7-6 victory.
After reading the SoA's materials, I dug a little deeper and read a few good papers and accounts of the battle. Now having fought the battle twice with CC:A, I am motivated to dig a little more deeply.
With CC:A, history repeated itself, twice!
