only a huge sized demo.. On a leaflet it said Q1 2017, but I couldn't ask the rep for more info (kickstarter?) as he was too occupied with others at that time.

I hope they take their time with the game and really get it right. I don't mind waiting if the payoff is a great product. Too many games are rushed into production--looks like this won't be one of them.cool

I did have a chance to talk with the rep for a little bit.. The new game will be on sale at Spiel'17. Some of the changes they made so far focus on streamlining the game, making it (a bit) easier and faster. For example:

- Provinces on the map were more clearly marked.
- Cards with a value of 3 now have a small ship icon.
- Cards also indicate the number of casualties after combat, instead of using one of the attrition table (if I remember correctly?!)
- The rulebook has been improved.

It seems like an improvement, but until Spiel'17 my 1996 edition will do just fine!

He also promised scenarios for the game and couple of new generals to choose from. On the other side will be the map for the Hasdrubal game. For that game they will add some additional cards. So I will get two games in the box.

The co designer seamed to be a really nice guy who is really interested in making these changes to the game. As I understood they will try to kickstart the game. After talking to him I felt that I should order the kickstarter edition although I own the Valley Games copy.

Interesting. I was under the impression it would be a Hamilcar (First Punic Wars) game. Hasdrubal would be part of the same conflict (Second Punic Wars) as Hannibal. Maybe it will focus on the Iberian conflict v Scipio Africanus?

He meant Hamilcar (1st Punic War).

One year later, who would thought? Not me,really, when we embarked on this project...





20th Anniversary Edition of Mark Simonitch’s Hannibal will be launched on Kickstarter on Wednesday, April 19th. Please mark this important date!

Hannibal & Hamilcar will be two games in one box. With double printed board (separate maps for Hannibal and Hamilcar), new Strategy Cards and Generals, redesigned counters and streamlined procedures for resolving sieges, naval battles and determining battle losses. Those mechanics which will produce the same results as the original game, just in an easier to grasp format. The Millennials will get combat results on the flight (or on roll of a die) while the Grognards may still use their tables instead.

Hamilcar will introduce a naval system inspired by Successors, another great game by Mark Simonitch. There is plenty of historical events sewed into the design as well as well plenty of chrome, applied in right proportions. We have put over a year of diligent research into this game.

Hannibal & Hamilcar is The Most Anticipated Grognard Game of 2017 and we believe it truly deserves this status. Thank you all for voting!
We will need all of your help again to give the game the chance it truly deserves. We will need all your clicks, votes, likes & shares. Your words of support. And your hard won pounds, dollar and euros, so the project can be financed and put to production.

Hannibal & Hamilcar will debut at Essen Game on 26 - 29 October 2017

Please spread the word and stay tuned in for further updates on the project!
