    The game recreates a battle during the Punic Wars, between the Carthaginian and Roman Republican armies. The Roman army counters represent a force of two legions, with auxiliary and other friendly foreign troops, totaling approximately 22,000 men. The Carthaginian army is typical of a mercenary type army, with counters representing some 30,000 men. Using the simple but comprehensive rules, up to six players are able to recreate a complete battle on any flat surface. The battlefield can be varied to suit any type of terrain, thus giving an extremely variable playing area.

    Part of the Micro Warfare Series from Tabletop Games. The games in the series were intended to be played directly on the game table (without a mapboard) using rules concepts from traditional miniatures wargaming. The games offered an affordable alternative to the miniatures hobby in that they used un-cut cardstock counters for the game units.
