Recently, I have begun to dust off some of my ancient world games (after a looooong kick on Cold War era games) and, not surprisingly, I ended up diggin out the GBOH series (with simple rules, of which I am a heavy advocate). I currently have The Battle of Cirta (from Jugurtha) set up and have found it to be very interesting compared to some of the other battles. All this set me thinking and I decided to ask: what is your favorite battle from the GBOH series and why. Naturally, I shall start

Alexander the Great has always been THE man for me when it comes to the great commanders of history. Not only was he good at every form of warfare, but politically adroit as well. Still, some of his battles required incredible daring on his part and, of those battles, my favorite is Issus. In the times I have played this I have found it to be very close, with timing being critical on when the key thrust is launched. It is, IMHO, one of the best, and my favorite, of the GBOH series.
