Last Sunday Garry, Bern, Craig and I met at the Vikings Club in Lanyon and we played a three division, 510 point Hail Caesar game, with Early Carthaginians versus Syracusans. Craig and I commanded the Carthaginians while Garry and Bern were the Syracusans. Here are a few photos of the game. In the end the it came down to the final turn. The Syracusans finally managed to break two Carthaginian divisions but had one broken division themselves and were close to breaking with a second division. Thanks to Garry, Bern and Craig for a fun, close game.
