Scenario instructions[]

Description[]

Starting conditions[]

Hints[]

Players[]

Player[]

  • Player (Carthaginians): The player starts with a Bronze Age base, Villagers, a small navy, some towers and some land forces.

Enemies[]

  • Romans (Romans): This enemy starts with a moderate Bronze Age base to the west. They have one Government Center which the player must destroy. This enemy starts with some Short Swordsmen and Cavalry.
  • Romans (Romans): This enemy starts with a moderate Bronze Age base to the north. They have one Government Center which the player must destroy. This enemy starts with some Short Swordsmen.

Strategy[]

  • Both enemies start with a small army, which can be crushed by the heavy infantry and elephant. Removing one of then from the game will make the fight much easier. Yellow is weaker, so he is more vulnerable. After removing one opponent from the game, build up a bit and tackle the other one.
  • Both the Red and Yellow government centers are within range of your navy - if you get close enough.
  • There are five Gaia Cavalry in the western corner. Unfortunately, they are stuck behind some trees, which will need to chopped down first.
