The Republic of Carthage

Negotiate, deceive or backstab? The choice is yours in this game of strategy, politics and intrigue.

In The Republic of Carthage, you must constantly balance personal advancement against the security of the state. Trade and fight to build up the empire. Vie for power in the Senate and on the battlefield. But to grow in size and power only attracts the unwelcome attention of rivals, not just your opponents, but also foreign powers like Syracuse, Pyrrhus and, most deadly of all, Rome.

The Republic of Carthage reflects approximately 350 years in the life of the ancient Carthaginian Republic. Players cooperate and compete to manage its fortunes, especially its politics, wars and trade in this simulation of political and mercantile life in Rome's ancient and most deadly enemy.

Are you smart and savvy enough to survive and thrive where Hannibal could not?

Special rules even allow you to play this in conjunction with The Republic of Romeā„¢ in a grand scenario that can support up to twelve players!
