This is another game in play testing my ancient rules by replaying historical battles. This one is the Battle of Metaurus. I am play testing the rules by chronologically replaying all the Peter Sides scenarios from his Historical Battles books.

I have been slow in play testing these rules for the last few years. For November 2019 I set myself a challenge to play the 10 First and Second Punic Wars battles from the book. This battle is game 8 in the attempt. I actually played all 10 battles by the end of November and working my way through writing them up.
The battle report is here:
