The armies of Marwan II and Abdallah ibn Ali met for a decisive battle along the banks of the Zab River. Its outcome meant the demise of the Umayyad Caliphs and secured the rise of the Abbasid.

This historic re-fight deviates from the standard 12 element game and is presented in two parts; the analysis of the opposing sides and battlefield to be followed by the actual game.
