Played this against my boy Daniel today using VASSAL Epic module. While we do have enough bits to play this on the Epic Boards, we do not have a set of Epic cards, which the VASSAL module does provide.
We have played a couple of Epic games using the normal cards, but the EPIC pack centainly game it a better flavour.
I had the Romans against Daniels Carthaginians. I spend a bit of time getting my line together while Daniel pushed his centre up. I saw a chance on my right and trapped one of his heavy cavalry where it could not retreat and killed it with my medium cavalry.
The centre turned into a scrum, with us both using line command cards to cause mass combat. Daniel should have read the historic description. His centre melted under my attck, but he was not in a position to hit me in the flanks with his heavy infantry. Hanno died trying to rally the centre.
He struggled to get his light cavalry into the battle, but it was to late, the Romans reversed history with a comprehensive win.
Rome started strong in the center and the Carthaginians advanced also in the center, which is a mistake, the Romans quickly mounted up victory banners leading 8 to 4. Then the Carthaginians switched tactics and started to hit on the wings, regaining terrain up to a 10-10 tie. But the Romans managed to break a couple more units for a 12-11 win.
