Hi all,
I've created a tutorial video for this game. A couple mistakes have been pointed out to me.
1) There is a single roll for battle casualties.
2) Retreats are to the closest friendly space.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the video. Can't believe you haven't gotten more views, as this game really is tricky for a newbie to get there head around without help. The video is very well done and you explain some of the basics very clearly. One further episode would have been perfect, just to cover areas such as naval movement and some of the other finer details. My 17 yr old son has just watched the video and we are gearing up for our first game shortly. Thanks again.

This is a generally good tutorial but it may have a few small errors:

1. Rome can still go first even without a campaign card if Carthage allows it, which they generally do, as letting your opponent go first means you go last (and the last card can't be countered until the next turn.) Of course, interrupt cards can play havoc with this line of thought.

2. Rome must pick a pro-consul, so two new generals don't automatically replace two old generals after an election. And they definitely don't after the first turn.

3. Pestilence only affects an army already besieging a city, so it couldn't have been used by Carthage to target Varo.

4. Varo intercepts on a roll of 1 through 4, not on a 1. It's his special ability.

5. You mentioned that "on turn 6 Scipio Africanus becomes the Roman pro-Consul." While, I admit, it's certainly a minor point, he becomes a Roman pro-consul as there already was one on the board and there will be two Roman pro-Consuls from turn 6 through 9.

Also, another minor point, I believe the northern Italy province is pronounced Galla CIS - ALP - E - N - Ah. (Gaul on the near side of the Alps)

But thanks for the effort. It makes a great teaching tool.

One small correction worth noting, and it is an essential rule that can easily be overlooked:

There is a political isolation phase at the end of each turn. At the end of video 1, Carthage would have lost its 3 PC markers in Massilia and Gallia Transalpinia because it cannot trace its PC markers back to a friendly CU, walled city, tribe, or port.

"Ports" being the cities with a ship/number next to it.
