Valley Games announces the release of Hamilcar – First Punic War

Hamilcar – First Punic War is an expansion for Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage. Designed by Mark Simonitch and John Rodriguez, Hamilcar takes you back to the First Punic War where Hamilcar (Hannibal’s Dad), is running the show… and Rome isn’t very happy about that!

MSRP: OUT of stock

This expansion includes:

  • A new map board for the First Punic War,
  • A map board for the ORIGINAL Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage game on the reverse side,
  • This expansion includes a two-sided board. One side features the board for Hamilcar: First Punic War (the expansion), while the other side is the board for the original Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage
  • 9 new generals who fought under Hamilcar, 9 new Roman generals AND 7 new generals for the original Hannibal game that can be played with the original

Remember, this is an expansion. You will need to own Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage to enjoy this rather extensive expansion.

The artwork in the game and the box cover are once again courtesy of award-winning artist, Kurt Miller.

Hannibal Expansion Generals:

We are going to start this off with the first general on this post and he is P.C. Scipio Nasica, who ironically suggested that Rome save Carthage instead of destroying it as he thought it would help to prevent the deterioration of Roman morals and discipline.


Special Ability: If on unfriendly Tribe, inflicts Subjugation Points equal to CUs lost during the Winter Attrition phase.

More Generals will be released every couple days so check back often!
