Second Punic War Basic - Battlegrounds
Two centuries before the birth of Christ, the greatest general of his day led a small army over the Alps and nearly broke the power of Rome. Now you can recreate Hannibal's triumphs at Cannae and Trasimene, or re-enact his defeat by Scipio Africanus at the battle of Zama.
This set contains all the cards you need to play the Rome and Carthage factions as well as comprehensive rules for the Battleground system.
Battleground: Fantasy Warfare is a point-based miniatures game - but without the miniatures. Battleground uses cards rather than painted models to represent your forces. This means a much lower price as well as easier transportation and setup, but don't be fooled - this is not a "light" war game or a CCG. Battleground is a serious, award-winning wargame that will challenge you at every step, from army design and deployment to tactical maneuvers and command decisions until battle's end.
What you Get
Each Battleground army comes in two different decks.
- Army Starters contain eighteen unit cards, a thirty-card Command Deck and two quickstart reference cards, plus the basic rules. This gives you all the cards you need to get started - in play terms, each unit card is the equivalent of a boxed set of miniatures.
- Army Reinforcement decks each contain fifty unit cards - enough for almost any army you can imagine - and the advanced rules. Reinforcement decks also include two unit types not available in that army's Starter.
All you need in addition is a flat surface, an opponent, some 6 sided dice and a couple of markers.
