What do I need to play an Epic scenario? I assume two copies of the game. Do the maps fit together? Are there rules posted somewhere? Do I need to change the deck? Thanks!

We played with 2 copies of card decks and modified epic rules, similar CCAncient Epic

I created in meantime a graphical special epic card deck, also similar CCA-Epic, which we use now in our games, see this example:



Modified Epic Rules

1. You may play one ARMY card or 1-3 field cards.
2. Counter Attack may be counter an played ARMY or Field card of your opponent.
3. Some field cards, which allows you order units in 2 or 3 sections, counts as 2 or 3 played cards.
These cards are noticed as Field 2 or Field 3 cards.
4. Each section may get only a field card.
5. After turn, you may draw 2 cards (observe hand limit)
6. If you play at least one Scout card, you may draw 3 cards and keep 2 (observe limit of hands)
7. A field commanders, which get no card, are allowed to make a INI roll. Roll one die and order a unit, which symbol is shown.
A flag forces one of your units to retreat. If a XSW is rolled, one unit loose one figure.


Modified Tactic Cards:

- Assault: up to 6 units in section
- Force March: up to 6 units in section
- Rally: Roll 1 die for each command card you hold (including the played rally). For all symbols, a block of this unit symbol is
recovered, in any/different section(s).

This is very helpful. Thank you!

I am assuming that although there are only a few extant scenarios for Epic play, and they are all unofficial, that you still think it is worth owning two sets because Epic play is...well...epic?!

We always hope, interested players setup new/another epic games and share it with us

You can also try this epic Gettysburg Scenario (17x13 Battlelore Epic size).

So you are basing your epic rules more off of CCA Epic, instead of M'44 OL?

Exact, but you can for sure adapt the MM44 OL rules, if you prefer that way, at last it´s the Players choice, until we get sometime official BC epic rules (but i believe, we don´t get it, until then WoC holds the game/rights).

And as you can see, also the 17x13 size scenarios with "On the move" rules similar MM44 Breakthrough, works well.

So it´s at last on you, which epic rules you prefer and play

Absolutely.

Though from this thread http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1183199/big-battle-cry-j... it seems the actual Big Battle Cry more resembles M44 OL instead of CCA Epic2.
