Solo Play:

This may have been the most uninspiring battle I have played yet. Rome opened with an line command to push everyone forward. Hmm... looking to be a big huge conflict in the center, always interesting. But Carthage could get nothing to move its right flank. Not a single card. The majority of their orders were for their left flank or leadership cards that were not for the right flank. Despite this lack of mobility, they were devastating on the battle back. Carthage absolutely crushed the Roman attackers. Both sides seemed to only take casualties from battle back. A very defensive battle.

Carthage 7 - Rome 4

Well, again the battle did not go well for the Romans. Despite their superior tactics and mobility, as well as better troops, they still managed to fail. Carthage was again devastating on the battle back, but this time it was coupled by some average attacks as well. Hasdrubal managed to eliminate THREE in battle back on the SAME order, while only taking 2 blocks of casualties. It is really hard to defeat your opponent when they do not realize they are outmatched and should flee. Rome maneuvered themselves well, but Carthage always had the upper hand in every conflict. Sometimes the gods just hate you.

Although the scenario is a poor representation of the battle as described in Livy and Polibius, it is a fun one to play.
