We had 5 players and the game took about 2 hours to set up and play. The Romans opened with an unsupported cavalry charge on their left the resulted in heavy losses. I played Carthaginian left. I planned to stall the Roman advance will the strong centre closed to beat the weaker Roman centre. My elephant played a big role in this. My opponent assigned greater strength to this unit than it had and took great pains to avoid it.
Carthage took and early lead but the Romans were able to mount a semblance of a comeback. Carthage reversed the historical outcome by winning 13-8. The elephant on the Carthaginian right routed some Principes and then killed a general that was leading the routed unit for the final victory.
