    Turn 3: Flaminius & Varro elected. Varro moves to siege Syracuse with 6. Hannibal recruits. Pestilence & losses knock Varro to 4, but he gets 1 siege pt on Syracuse. Nero +3 sails from Rome to reinforce the siege. Carthage campaigns, sending Gisgo with 3 across the mountains to establish some PCs for Hannibal, while Mago +5 sails to rescue Syracuse. Rome loses 2 and the siege is lifted. Varro & Nero force march to the north, and fight Gisgo, killing 1 CU, but Hannibal rescues 1 of them (duel mountain pass crossing). Rome establishes a base at Icosium with Diplomacy. Hannibal’s presence in Italy causes Lucania to switch sides. 11-7 Carthage

    Turn 4: Longus & P.Scipio elected consols, both placed at Mutina. Carthage starts with a Major campaign. Mago spreads out over Sicilia, Hasdrubal +1 sails for Lucania, and Hannibal attacks the roadblock, winning 5-1. Rome recruits, and Carthage does in Lucania, which allows Hasdrubal to take Tarentum with a traitor. Rome sends Nero +7 to Northern Spain, though only 4 make it after a bad storm. Hasdrubal tries to sail back to meet him, but the Roman Navy forces him to turn back. Hannibal attacks in the north, and DE’s Longus’s 10u army. Rome uses their 3 cards at the end to take Idubeda and cause Celtiberia to revolt. 10-7 Carthage.

    Turn 5: Marcellus and Paulus elected. Carthage places PCs in Celtiberia, while Rome recruits in Spain. Phillip joins with Carthage, and Rome marches to siege New Carthage. Rome pushes up the siege level to 2 with a good roll, while losing 2 CU, but loses a card to a messenger, and 1 siege point to a sortie. Mago sails back to Gades, Spain, picks up some troops, and marches to relieve New Carthage. Mago +5 fights Nero +4, and Mago wins on a probe. Retreat loses kill Nero’s army. Carthage takes Apulia with Diplomacy, and Hannibal charms Etruria into neutrality. 12-5 Carthage.

    Turn 6: Marcellus is proconsul, Varro and Flaminius elected. Scipio arrives, and Rome has 15 troops and all generals in Rome. Rome opens with ScipioA attacking Hannibal, only for Hannibal to win 5-2. Carthage moves Gisgo up with reinforcements to bring Hannibal back to full strength. Rome messengers a card. Carthage places PCs to take Samnium. Rome recruits (now 12 in Rome). Carthage takes control of Etruria, while Rome places PCs. Carthage campaigns, with Mago attempting to cut off the Roman PCs in Spain, while Hannibal attacks Rome directly. Mago is weathered and stopped, but Hannibal with 8u+2e faces off against Flaminius +12u in Rome, for a 19-16 card battle (after elephants, all of which are still alive). Hannibal wins with a DE after 5 rounds, and destroys the Roman army, causing the removal of all Roman PCs from the map. With 0 PCs on the map, no generals, and 4 troops in Corsica, Rome sues for terms.

    very tight game even after death of Hannibal; Hasdrubal, Mago & Hanno cleaned Romans out of Africa, only to see Scipio Africanus besiege New Carthage and stop Spanish reinf for a turn; Hasdrubal and Mago returned to Spain where battles were won and lost but Rome eventually prevailed although the outcome was in question until Rome had better card luck in the last turn

    Hannibal fought well and killed 25+ Roman CU (vs. losing ~6 CU) in 5 major battles against Marcellus, Africanus, and P.Scipio..
    Carthage lead 10-8 province count after T7R4 with W.Numidia joining Rome, so Scipio[10] attempted sudden death AA attack on Carthage defended by Hano[9]: 15BC vs 14BC.
    But Bad weather & Cato counsel Rome saved Carthage, allowing Hasdrubal to sail to bolster Carthage defense.

    T8 Rome got Truce to allow AA attack Carthage, and 2nd time Messenger Intercepted, but Phillip Joins Carthage event discarded Messenger Intercepted. Carthage had last two cards and converted 2 Italy province. If Rome discarded Macedonian allies card, it could have been Rome with last 2 cards instead of the other way around.
