A scenario for Bagradas is in the base game, although the majority of the scenarios in this game are for the 2nd Punic War.

If you'll consider a political game in which the war is fought, this one qualifies.

There is a variant on the S&T website for turning this into a First Punic War game. Additional and variant pieces for this scenario were in S&T #258, the one on the Spanish American War in Cuba.

This old SPI effort has scenarios for all three Punic Wars. In reality, only the Second Punic War scenario really holds up as a game (and the Third Punic War scenario in particular is a joke).

While not explicitly about the first Punic War, one could easily use the Triremes to play scenarios.

From the introduction of the game manual: "RamSpeed is a two-player game about battles between Greek, Roman, and Phoenician galleys (oar-powered warships). Players maneuver their galleys and attempt to sink their opponants' galleys. ... RamSpeed will bring to mind the clash of bronze and iron-beaked warships, decks aswarm with catapults, archers, and marines."
