Houdini Crowds for Battle Scene

Hello,
I'm learning Houdini Crowds and I think I've gotten the general basics down. Now, I'd like to try and simulate a small battle scene, with 2 separate groups on opposite ends of the scene run together and clash in the middle. I know it must be simple, but I can't figure out how to have 2 separate groups (made up of multiple agents) use each other as a goal and run towards each other. I've tried playing around with target position, but it seems to only allow a single goal rather than allowing one group to use another as a goal and vice versa. Is there a simple workflow for this? Thank you for your time.

Checkout the crowd based video tutorials in the learning section. The Relay Race shows how to setup goals per agent and how to define and reference groups in a wrangle.

thank you Atom, very informative. I would've never have thought to look at that. Turns out I needed multiple crowdsource nodes. I'm not yet comfortable w/ VEX to write my own conditions, so I wound up just using the groups as each others goals, but it gets the job done.
