Battle of Gaugamela is based loosely on the actual historical confrontation on 1 October 331 BC. The battle pits 410 total troops in all out combat.The Persians number 233, and the Macedonians number 177. There are no opportunities to rebuild forces, or build a city. The key to this confrotation is outmaneuvering your opponent. Victory condition is complete annihilation of your opponent.

This is a 2 player large battle scenario. One player is Darius and the other is Alexander. Darius has the advantage in cavalry and chariots while Alexander has the advantage in hoplites and archers. 410 total units grace the battlefield. The map is rather plain but the strategic gameplay should make up for that. Of course, you must have a fairly good PC for this to run well. The instructions are well-written and clear and the balance of the battle should be interesting. I like the fact that both sides are not given the exact same units. Nice job.
