Rome and Carthage
We went to Quimper yesterday and, as usual, popped into the local games shop to pick up some travel games for the kids. It's an excellent little shop and has a wide range of board games, puzzles and traditional strategy games. I had a rummage and found an English language copy of Rome and Carthage, which looks like a simple version of Successors, so I've added it to the collection.
I also located a copy of Vae Victis with the full rules, counters and board for Age of Aces, which I'm going to have a playtest of sometime during the week. The rules look pretty straightforward and have some interesting mechanisms, with the English version available as a download from the Vae Victis site, along with the various record sheets and tracks.
