648 12/20/2016 9:29:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Actually, the mgB stays on Alexandria. Use mgC from Athens to move the two LMs from Pelusium to Naucratis. Remove mgC.

Remove mgC from Athens, place on 1 Merc in Pella, MgC and 1 Merc moves from Pella to Chalcidice and continues with Leonnatus, the Lion-Hearted, and 1 LM to Amphipolis. Does Lion have the stones to stand and fight, or will he try to run away?
638 12/15/2016 1:45:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message It has been said that "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees." Well, I've got the dying part down.

Message from Lion:
Lion Attrition for 2 LMs.
635 12/15/2016 12:23:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message After die roll modifications, Lion rolls a "10" and has a result of 5; Horse rolls an "8" and has a factor of 9.
Antigonus goes to the convalescent home, 2 Mercs commit harakiri, and the 2 LMs incur attrition. Paul, did you want to roll or do you want me to?

Horse loses 1 Merc, and rests upon a TP which means the Leprechaun army will have some supply problems later this turn.

Message from Horse:
I thought that it was curiosity that killed the cat, but apparently it is impatience. Since Puddy is dying for the results, here goes.

First two rolls are Lions; next two rolls are Horses.
633 12/15/2016 12:09:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Yes. Let's get this over.
632 12/14/2016 11:44:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message The Leprechaun Army lands ashore at Xanthus, throwing away the sun tan lotion, and the wine and champagne bottles from the Bacchanalian festival at Rhodes and gears up for battle. Forward march to TP in Lydia. Unless there are any objections or relevant surprise cards, I believe a battle is in order. By my count Leprechaun has 15 combat factors against Puddy's 6.
631 12/14/2016 11:13:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message So the thundering herd splashes ashore at Xanthus.

626 12/14/2016 10:07:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message First up--let's see what the result of Lion's naval interception is. Is Horse "all in"? He's not known for his subtlety.
625 12/14/2016 7:42:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Oh goody! Let's rumble! The Leprechaun Army 2RM, 5 LM and 1 Merc

624 12/14/2016 6:34:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message I will respond in terms Horsey should understand. Neigh.
623 12/14/2016 12:59:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message 1 Merc and mgD move from Sardis to Miletus. Does Puddy Cat wish to try his luck again?

Message from Horse:
Well let's see how much sieging I get to do. Movement roll:
616 12/13/2016 1:40:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message A battle I wouldn't have minded losing. Instead, I get the worst possible result.

I find my kitty tower much more comfy than being exposed to the elements. I don't feel like horsing around at this time.
615 12/13/2016 1:48:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Perfect! Results 2:2. I still have my fleet intact and I have a prize to pick up after the Rhodians are soundly defeated.
Cowardly Lion, are your little Mercs going to fight like Lions or hide behind the walls like puddy cats?

612 12/13/2016 12:17:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Nevermind--the excess in Pelusium was due to reinforcements entering there.
611 12/13/2016 12:12:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Question: Did Horse ever remove a CU at the end of his last turn for exceeding the forage limit (8 CUs) at Pelusium?
610 12/13/2016 12:06:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Whoops. Did not realize it mattered how the card was played. I don't see any option to pull back the card. For reference, it is card #31.
609 12/12/2016 11:52:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Horse Tyche Segment

Leprechaun needs a vacation and decides upon a Mediterranean cruise.

2 RM, 5 LM, 1 Merc and Leprechaun board the Queen of the Nile and set sail for Rhodes via Alexandria. 4 Fleets consisting of 5 fleet factors join in on he fun. Would Cowardly Lion like to swim with the fishes?

Polyperchon (aka The Leprechaun) having defeated the last of Ptolemy's troops in Memphis declares the return of Egyptian rule to the Egyptian people. In celebration of the crowning of the new Pharaoh of Egypt and the overthrow of Ptolemaic tyranny, a festival has been declared: the first annual Leprechaun Day. The celebration will take place at the Luxor Palace in downtown Luxor along the Nile. Guests can stay at the Winter Palace, only a “stone’s throw away”.

RSVP soonest.
Sorry, NINA rules in effect (no Iranians need apply!!)

Lion places CM at Memphis.

606 12/6/2016 10:22:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion Forage Segment

All is good, food wise. Some supplements might be in order, however.
605 12/6/2016 10:18:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion Movement conclusion:

Antigonus' army uses his last 2 MPs to remove the Horse CM in Miletus.
604 12/6/2016 4:10:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Shh. . . No, thank-you. I like my fortified positions. Very safe! Lots of food and drink. The easy life. Stress-free. Did I mention safe?
603 12/6/2016 8:54:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion movement (you have to wonder what kind of movement it is, given the **itty results) continued:

Antigonus + 2 LM + 1 M moves Lydian SE TP - Miletus

Does Horse want to try to intercept?
602 12/6/2016 8:44:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message When you are behind, you have to swing for the bleachers. This time I struck out.
601 12/6/2016 1:48:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Feisty Lion is taking big chances. You know what they say, Paul, if you did not have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.
600 12/6/2016 1:47:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Fiesta Lion is taking big chances. You know what they say, Paul, if you did not have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.
599 12/6/2016 1:43:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message No. Thank you. Halicarnassus has been berry berry gude to me.
598 12/5/2016 11:20:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion Movement continues:

Antigonus + 2 LM + 1 M move Celaenae - Lydian TP.

Does Horse want to attempt an interception?
597 12/5/2016 10:39:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message It should be noted that Lion lost 1 LM to attrition.
596 12/5/2016 10:27:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message 'lyperchon must be imparting to Horse the "luck of the Irish."
595 12/5/2016 10:24:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Battle of Halicarnassus results.

Lion loses 1 M; 1 LM and Lysimachus are sent to the dispersed box.

Does Horse seek shelter within the city walls?
586 12/2/2016 12:35:00 AM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion Movement continues

Lysimachus + 2 LM + 1 M move Dascylium - TP - Celaenae - Lydian TP.

Does Horse wish to attempt an intercept?
585 11/27/2016 1:23:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Sunburst Message So the moving player moves step by step (one army moves one space), and pauses in any space where interception is possible. The defenders then declare all interception attempts into that one space, then roll them all. After that the moving player can continue movement, possible even altering his original undeclared "plan" based on the interception attempts. Is that what we decided? That seems right to me, at least.
584 11/25/2016 10:52:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Every now and then I have o have a bad die roll. Interception unsuccessful.

Message from Horse:
Intercept attempt.
582 11/25/2016 10:51:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Butt of Horse I will intercept. Minor general and 1M from Sardis will attempt intercept.
581 11/24/2016 12:52:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Paul, Rule clarification needed. The interception rules dictate that the full movement path of the moving army be disclosed, and then the opposing playing has the option to intercept wherever he is able and chooses to do so. This rule also requires that all interception attempts be declared before rolling any. But we have already set the precedent to do the movement incrementally, (which I believe is the better way to do it for various reasons). So I agree that each movement can be made one at a time, but because of this, I believe that each interception is to be made incrementally - one at a time. Since we have "modified" the rules for our play, I wanted to ensure that we were on the same page.
580 11/22/2016 9:51:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Lion Movement continued:

577 11/21/2016 11:04:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Lion Message Demetrius and his army deftly refuse battle with the ignoble Leonnatus.
576 11/16/2016 11:26:00 PM 315 - 311 BC Horse Message Die roll of 5 = successful interception. Does Lion dare to do battle or will he drag his little lion's tail behind his butt as he skedaddles back to Amphi City?

Perdiccas' army makes the failed siege roll against Tyre instead of the minor general: Emesa - Sidon - Tyre + siege roll = 4MPs. The minor general in Tyre instead moves his 3 Merc into Samaria and removes the CM there: Tyre - Samaria + remove CM = 3MPs. The lone Mercs then fill in at Tyre rather than spreading out across Judea.

Or maybe it is a little demon.
