A conflict between two superpowers of Antiquity

Hannibal & Hamilcar is the updated edition of a classic Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage, an asymmetrical card –driven game for 2 players, set in the time of the epic struggle between ancient Rome and Carthage, that has won numerous awards. During the game the players move generals and new troops, gain political control of the provinces involved in the war, introduce historical events, and fight battles when two armies meet on the battlefield. Both players seek victory by dominating both fronts: military and political.

The original rules and components were updated for this edition by Mark Simonitch and Jaro Andruszkiewicz, enhancing the visual impact of the original game and making it easier and faster to play.

This Revised Edition of the game includes new features, as new set of rulebooks, rewritten in a modern way, a new bigger box for the game components, and a new set of custom dice (smaller – 20mm and 16mm instead of 25mm and 20mm).

The contents can be further enhanced by the inclusion of two optional new expansions, Sun of Macedon and Price of Failure (available for separate purchase).

Hamilcar, set during the First Punic War, is a companion game sharing components and using similar mechanics, introducing a naval system and naval battles. Both players compete for control of the Mediterranean Sea: Rome’s goal is to break through the island chain of Sicily, Corsica, and Sardinia while Carthage’s aim is to contain Rome on the Italian peninsula.

The English edition of PHALANX games is exclusively distributed in the United States and non-European countries by Ares Games.
