Scenario Instructions Edit
Rather than risk another staggering loss in Italy itself that might leave Rome at Hannibal's mercy, your army has been sent to North Africa to threaten Carthage itself. This strategy has worked brilliantly because Hannibal has withdrawn from Italy. Defeat Hannibal and Carthage to bring this long, destructive war to a conclusion.
- Win by any means, including building a Wonder.
You start off in the Iron Age with a few buildings and a small army of Heavy Cavalry, Legions, Composite Bowmen, Stone Throwers, and Priests. Hannibal (Carthaginians, red) has a heavily defended city to the north. Start gathering resources as you send your forces north for your first attack.
Most of the enemy's troop-producing buildings are found in the eastern part of his town, so break through the wall and start destroying them. Any enemy siege units should be charged by the cavalry, and convert any War Elephants that come too close. If you can destroy most of their buildings with your initial force, the scenario will be easy. When their city has been dealt with, you can either hunt down the last survivors, or build a Wonder.
