From the Publisher...

Commands & Colors: Ancients allows you to re-fight epic battles of the ancient world. Here the focus is on the two rivals for power in the Western Mediterranean – Carthage and Rome. Will you, as Hannibal, triumph over larger Roman armies; or as Scipio Africanus, will you beat Hannibal with newer tactics of your own?

Units in both armies can only move and fight when ordered. The command playing cards supply those orders, providing an element of luck that creates a fog of war and presents players with both challenges and opportunities. You must maximize your opportunities by playing your command cards judiciously. How well you handle the diverse units, their weapons, and the terrain, will determine victory.

Commands & Colors: Ancients contains the battles of Akragas, Crimissos River, Ticinus River, Lake Trasimenus, Cannae, Dertosa, Castulo, Baecula, Ilipa, and Zama.

Game Components
Five full-color sheets of unit labels to affix to the 345 wooden blocks.
One 22"x34" full-color mapsheet + three sheets of Terrain Tile Overlays (double-sided)
60 Command Cards
7 Battle dice
28-page Rule and Battle book
2 full color Player Aid cards

Fantastic card driven battle/war game. Similar gameplay style as Memoir '44, but slightly more advanced. If you like Memoir, Roman history, or are just looking for a simple, yet engrossing wargame, look no further than C&C: Ancients.

Mark W.
This is one of the funnest ancients games I've ever played. A very good value for it's price,I highly recommend it!

Finally a theme well suited to Borg's C & C system. I enjoyed Memoir and Battle Cry, but this one takes the cake for me, both because I love the theme, and the added complexity adds depth to the game without detracting from the playability. My rating has gone up after repeated plays, the strategy in the game is surprisingly subtle, much more so than in M '44 or BC. Rating has gone up after multiple playings
