Syracuse vs Carthage - Hanibal at the Gates

Last Friday evening my Uncle hosted a pick up game of his ancients rules, Hanibal at the Gates. This was partially a re-match of our recently completed campaign battle which pitted a Syracusian army against a Carthaginian army. In the campaign battle the Carthaginian's won, but in this re-match, Charlie, the Syracusian commander, devised a system to fight with the hoplite phalanxes that seemed to work nicely.

This was a well fought and close game with Syracuse coming out slightly ahead when we called the game.
