Hannibal & Hamilcar Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Most of us know about Hannibal and his elephants. But what about Hamilcar, his father? He, too, was a great military leader and led battles for Carthage against Rome. Those two cities fought it out quite a lot over the years (and we know that Rome eventually prevailed). Soon, you'll be able to bring those battles to your tabletops. That's because Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage and Hamilcar, two games in one box, are up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage is one of the best two-player games ever published. The game is renowned for its tense, well-balanced mechanics. And it tells a great story. HANNIBAL crossing the Alps on his herd of elephants is one of the most memorable events in history.

The development team at PHALANX has given this game a careful, meticulous update. It is now easier and faster to play. It plays considerably shorter. It has received new, stunning art. It is even better than it used to be.

There is even another game in the box: HAMILCAR, which portrays the events of the First Punic War.

The Kickstarter campaign is already over its funding goal, so it's on to stretch goals for the next 22 days.

Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam!
