Over the Alps is the official Punic Wars scenario supplement for Age of Hannibal. This PDF covers the 15 most famous battles of all three Punic Wars. Each historical scenario has been well-researched with primary and secondary source material, including tabletop maps and orders of battle for the opposing armies. We've also included rules, tokens, and a stunning campaign map for you to play a grand campaign of linked games!
Other rule systems dribble out a stream of small supplements, forcing you to buy a dozen products to get all the material you want. Not here at Little Wars TV! We get you every major battle in one, massive PDF. If you're still not convinced, check out the table of contents below to see what's included!

In addition to the 15 historical scenarios, Over the Alps also includes a map-based campaign for players to re-fight the First Punic War in Sicily.
The campaign rules are just 7 pages in length, designed for speed and ease of play. But packed in those 7 pages, you'll find simple rules to raise armies, march across Sicily, siege towns, conduct naval landings, diplomacy, treachery, and manage logistics. All this allows 2 or more players to link a series of battles together to rewrite the history of the First Punic War.
