Hannibal: Rome Vs Carthage another golden (not too) oldie hits the table

Played game of Hannibal Rome Vs Carthage (Avalon Hill version) with my son (nned to make use of him whilst he is home) tonight and another topsy turvy but exciting card based game it proved to be.
Tactics/Strategy from us both a bit ropey to be honest as we got caught up in bashing each others armies with both Hannibal and Scipio Africanus being eliminated (both invading ports that they could not retreat from after being beaten in battle !!).
To be honest both were pants especially Hannibal who lost lots of units to attrition and failed to win a single battle.
However Mago and Nero (Pro-Consul most of game) both shone for respective sides.
Only last couple of turns with total Combat Units depleted did we really concentrate on placing Political Control markers and Province control.
All hinged on Gallia Transalpina with my failure to gain last subjugation point on a Carthage friendly Tribe allowing Steven to place a single PC marker to gain control of this Province to make it 9 Provinces controlled each which gives Carthage the default win ! Damn...................................................................................................................

Great game again with both of us pledging to do better next time :-)
