    Carthage has some help from Phillip from the start, who then stayed in the war for the entire game. Hannibal and Gisgo invaded Italy (with guides), and eventually took Samnium and Etruria by turn 6, building up to 14u in size. Rome built a lot of troops, losing a lot of them in battle, including a spoiler attack on Spain by Varro, defeated by Hasdrubal. Carthage kept trying to take Corsica and Sicilia, sometimes getting it, sometimes being driven off.

    Rome got Messenger twice on turns 6 & 7 (and on turn 2) and used their superior numbers to bludgen Hannibal, eventually forcing him to pull back into Cisalpinia, and then killing him (even though Hannibal won a DE against Scipio as part of his defense, the loss roll was a ‘1’). Carthage did manage to flip Capua before they lost the 3 Roman provinces.

    In the mean-time, Carthage finally established themselves on the islands (Hasdrubal +4 in Corsica, Mago + 8 in Sicilia), and Scipio sailed for Corsica. Bad weather stopped the 10u army, and storms at sea caused a 2u loss, leaving Scipio with 3u on the beachhead. Hasdrubal attacked, and avenged his brother in turn 8. Hasdrubal then when on to defeat two other armies led by Flaminius and Nero (5u each) which also tried to invade Corsica.

    In the end, Rome took back Cisalpinia, but was down Corsica, Sicilia, (split wtih Capua), and Carthage managed to sneak in at the end with Gisgo and grab Tarentum with a betrayal and some PCs to control Apulia at the end.

    Final troop strength: Rome 7 Carthage 31

    The name of the game should be “Hasdrubal: Rome vs. Carthage” for avenging his brother, and defending Corsica from 3 Roman armies.

    Hannibal established his presence in N Italy on turn 1. Rome landed in Africa and Spain several times on the following turns. Carthage was able to kick Roman armies out of Africa, but Spain proved more difficult. As a result, Hannibal was recalled back to Spain to help stabilize the situation. He won every battle fought, but Roman reinforcements just kept on pouring in. With several turns of poor cards, Carthage province count was sliding. After seeing his card draw at the beginning of T9, Carthage resigned due to bad cards as the province count was already 10-7 in favor of Rome.

    Rome was plagued by historically bad counterattack rolls. Many a battle was won by Carthage that should have been lost causes.
    Marcellus spent most of the game in Spain with a horde of troops (up to about 20 CUs initially). Rome ended up converting all three cities along the Spanish coast (Gades, New Carthage and Saguntum).
    Hannibal spent most of the game in southern Italy with a big host as well (about 15 CUs). He converted Tarentum and held down the two southern Italian provinces until the final turn.

    Carthage had a good start aided by appalling Roman Consul draws turns 2,3,4. Rome wiped out by end of turn 5 but Africanus arrived to save the day. (Hannibal also only 4 CUs.). Reinforcements twice by Hasdrubal from Spain kept Hannibal going and a ferocious last turn ended with 18 Carthage CUs, and 14 Roamn but crucially the Islands and Gallia Cisalpina still in Carthage hands,
