Hannibal. Rome vs Carthage

We are proud to announce, that this year we will publish a 20 Anniversary Edition of the Hannibal Rome vs Carthage boardgame.

  • This is a game with a history. Designed 20 years ago and still considered one of the best two player games ever published.
  • This game tells a great story. Hannibal’s elephants crossing the Alps are one of the most remembered events of all time.
  • This game is very well balanced and tense. The final result is unknown to the last card play.
  • This game has gone through a very well thought out update. It is now easier and faster to play. It plays considerably shorter. It is graphically more appealing. It is even better than it used to be. And there is more in the box: another stand-alone game: Hamilcar. And… find out yourself what else.

Hannibal. Rome vs Carthage by one of the most acclaimed game designers in the World, Mark Simonitch. By Phalanx.

      We will start a campaign when everything will be ready, but our goal is to release the game in October this year.

      Yes, the new edition of the game is still in development. Our team and Mark are working hard to bring you the best product possible! :) We hope that the game will be launched at Kickstarter this autumn, with release date of spring 2017.

    Hannibal lost his right eye, not his left. Box art is wrong.

      claudius nepos `Hannibal lost his right eye` which is why wicki and encyclopedias refer to HB losing his right eye.

            We will release them during the KS campaign, planned for early 2017. This week we are showing the demo version at Essen Spiel Fair. Please visit our booth 2-C110 PHALANX and play the game! :)

    Would it be possible to get an idea of how much the game would cost when it comes out? (Even a simple over $100 or under $100 would suffice.)

    I’m excited for the new edition but would rather settle for an old copy if it’s outside my price bucket :)

      We hope that the game will cost less than 100$. The longer printrun we have, the cheaper the game will be. Essen was good, with a lot of promising business talks, so the price shouldn’t kill you. :)

    Hi guys.
    Sounds like you had a good show at Essen Spiel.
    Will the KS be announced soon or will we have to wait until until 2017?
