#59: Hannibal: Rome v Carthage

Using the classic "We The People" card-based system for simulating large-ranging wars, Hannibal creates a tight & interesting battle between players that is intriguing and involving. Proves once again that "old" Avalon Hill had a few tricks up their sleeve - when they weren't busy releasing the umpteenth expansion to Squad Leader or some gem like Global Survival.

Aaron Fuegi: "The only wargame to make my list. Extremely well-balanced and every game is interesting. 50+ play list."

Doug Adams: "Early card driven wargame that hasn't aged a bit. Fantastic game."

Richard Vickery: "Great story with beautifully-meshed mechanisms."
