I played this a year or so back. Quite enjoyed it. But I mainly play Slitherines "Pike and Shot Campaigns". Really enjoy that. With the user downloads and modifications it now covers War of the Roses through to the late 19th century.

I have played both P&S and FoGII. I have played some against the AI but currently playing playing a series of games with a fine Fanatici. I did enter that tournament which starts this week which will be my first tourney in the game.
Seems one of my opponents (baldrick52/Richard Yorke) has a YouTube channel and uploads his adventures in various games and covered the Rise and Fall of Carthage tournament.
So I was pleasantly surprised to find, perhaps, my best round of that tournament recorded for posterity and could relive the laughs and chuckles again in a more concentrated form, thank you baldrick52.
The take away from these games being Spanish Scutarii medium infantry impact can be very badass.
