Hamilcar - Expansion for Hannibal

Caught this piece of news from our friends over at No High Scores and also on the Geek. Apparently there is a possibility of an expansion for Hannibal Rome vs Carthage.

Hannibal is one of my favorite games however I'm not what an expansion will add to the games. In fact over at the Valley Games site the bullet list for the expansion is not that impressive.

  • A new map board for the First Punic War,
  • A map board for the ORIGINAL Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage game on the reverse side,
  • This expansion includes a two-sided board. One side features the board for Hamilcar: First Punic War (the expansion), while the other side is the board for the original Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage
  • 9 new generals who fought under Hamilcar, 9 new Roman generals AND 7 new generals for the original Hannibal game that can be played with the original
So three of the bullet points are about the map. It's certainly nice to have a new map and some new generals to play with. I would assume if you're adding 7 generals to the original game there might be some new rules but the site doesn't mention this.

I'm a completest so I've already bought in on the pre-orderbut hopefully Valley Games will give us a little more information on this expansion.
