Gentlemen that lunch .

We have found that C&C gives a quick decisive game in about an hour , so 'A' dropped in for a game during his lunchtime (being his own boss helps) I had set up a scenario ready to play whilst we ate our lunches .

The scenario was Gaugamela 331 BC , Alexander the Great versus Darius lll , 'A ' played the Macedonians and myself the Persians (nearest the camera)

The battle was at times a close run thing with the Persians doing great damage to the Macedonian light troops , but in the end the pike blocks pushed through the Persian centre and claimed victory . The whole event worked very well and we plan to make these lunchtime battles a regular occurrence playing a series of battles and keeping the scores from each battle to form a campaign .
