Hi everybody !
Excuse my English, as it`s not my mother-language.
I´ve a question about Darius: according to the rules you add the deployment points of the unit (not the "troop" !!) to the total of destroyed enemy troops for the victory conditions.
So it is possible to put Darius with three other troops together to a unit that counts up to about 20 points. Hiding this unit in the rear will often lead to victory after the first round, if Alexander doesn´t manage to win almost every fight with no losses.
I think this advantage is much too strong and is almost ruining the game or did I misunderstand something ?

What´s your opinion ?

Hi - the points should only count for the troop and not the whole unit. Check out this thread and you'll see the game designer's comments and clarification: Darius Trait Discussion

Thanks a lot for the hint !I didn´t find this threat before.
"Troop" makes definitely more sense, I´ll try it right now...
