What is Carthage?
Carthage is a deckbuilding board game, giving players a progressive game experience... ending in a vicious crescendo of blood and glory! Gladiators start in the hex-based theater as weak combatants, but as their actions gain crowd Favor, they can develop their tactics (player deck) into a lethal combination of Damage, Armor, and Movement.
A round begins with the Combat Phase where players play Action Cards, after which they spend crowd Favor points to build better combat options, Lobby the crowd for advantages, or assemble their Starting Deck into a more lethal combination of tactics.
