940 5/31/2017 7:02:00 AM Turn 10 Blue Message And here we go! https://britannia.marjola.net/?load=romulus-7
939 5/30/2017 4:48:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message Thanks Kevin!
938 5/30/2017 4:48:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message Hispania's a possibility. I'm up for it myself, and so is Kevin. I haven't found my full set of rules, but BGG has a nice summary at https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/51621/rules-summary-hispania

I figured if not everyone in this group is interested then the ones who are can draft someone. ;-)
937 5/30/2017 4:28:00 PM Turn 10 Yellow Message Are we playing Hispania too? I remember talking about it, but I still need the rules. Jim J, did you find the rules pdf?
936 5/30/2017 10:55:00 AM Turn 10 Yellow Message Reporting for duty. Where are we and what are we doing? Other than playing Italia I mean.
935 5/29/2017 2:51:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message I'm ready!
934 5/29/2017 8:49:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message It's back. Pekka must have been successful repairing the maps.

Is everyone ready to start again?

Also what about that game of Hispania we discussed. Still up for it?
933 3/1/2017 5:51:00 PM Turn 10 Yellow Message This too shall pass. I agree this is a great group of guys.
932 3/1/2017 1:57:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message Probably so Kevin - Pekka is still having troubles. His database keeps crashing.
931 3/1/2017 1:11:00 PM Turn 10 Red Message Sadly I think we are going to have to call this game dead :(
930 2/6/2017 8:52:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message Greetings Kevin!

Thanks for the reminder. I just poked Pekka again. Cross your fingers!

--Jim
929 2/6/2017 11:20:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message Pokes game with stick. It is asleep or dead?

Joking aside, has anyone managed to get in touch with Pekka? I's not like him to be out of touch so long.

Just a bit concerned that's all.
928 1/16/2017 11:36:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message Any more news regarding maps?
927 1/6/2017 10:52:00 AM Turn 10 Blue Message Yup - sorry folks. Not even a word out of Pekka yet.

Oh - and I have not been able to find my Hispania rules. But - I'm pretty sure I grabbed them from somewhere on line, so I need to look around again.
926 1/6/2017 10:38:00 AM Turn 10 Yellow Message Alas...a dearth of new maps even though JimJ requested them..
925 12/23/2016 10:18:00 AM Turn 10 Yellow Message Thank you Kevin. And a Merry Christmas to you as well. I am pretty excited about Christmas as Micah, my youngest, will be home for the holiday. My other two children live nearby in SoCal, but Micah lives in Seattle so time with him is like gold to me. Anyway, lot's of fun pre-planned with the family. Can't wait.
924 12/23/2016 10:08:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message Have a great Xmas guys
923 12/22/2016 4:50:00 PM Turn 10 Green Message What are we waiting on to start the new game?
922 12/11/2016 10:16:00 PM Turn 10 Green Message Jim, Can you set up a new game?
Greg prefers Blue or Green, I will take any color. Choose what you want.
921 12/11/2016 3:34:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message FYI my internet access is patchy at present 9issue with PC rather than internet provider) so when the game kicks off I will post when I can but replies might be delayed
920 12/8/2016 8:59:00 AM Turn 10 Blue Message BTW folks, I'm still looking for my Hispania rules. I'll spend some more time this weekend.

Yellow: from 59 to 59
Red: from 145 to 145
Green: from 88 to 110
917 12/6/2016 11:37:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message I know there is a Hispania map because I created most of it :)

Pekka did some finishing touches and also created the pieces.

There was a lot of work for Pekka and while playing we discovered there were some pieces missing.

This issue isn't insurmountable however, we still managed a good game.

After the game Pekka was burned out creating the pieces and I gave it a go but I wasn't much good and gave up.

You can look at the game board if you look back to the old games there is a HispaniaD which we played a few years ago.
916 12/6/2016 10:52:00 AM Turn 10 Blue Message Pekka's map program has a Hispania map. I have the rules around somewhere. I think in electronic form. I'll have to look when I get home.
915 12/6/2016 10:37:00 AM Turn 10 Yellow Message I have never played Hispania, I would also need to locate rules in addition to a map.
914 12/6/2016 8:59:00 AM Turn 10 Green Message I am up for another game. I will take any color.
I would also be up for a game of Hispania if we could get a map.
913 12/5/2016 1:42:00 PM Turn 10 Red Message I would like to play Yellow again, they seem to be the red-headed stepchild so I think there must be some sort of a game plan to give them a fighting chance.

Alternatively, if everyone has access to the game, I suggest a game of Hispania.
912 12/5/2016 1:03:00 PM Turn 10 Yellow Message I am in for another game as well. I have played Red and Yellow. Interested in trying another color.
911 12/5/2016 12:51:00 PM Turn 10 Red Edit Victory Points Blue: from 127 to 127

910 12/5/2016 12:51:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message Final points for blue - 13 Byzantines, 6 Avars +108 = 127

Way short of red. Nicely played Kevin!

I'm definitely ready for another game.
909 12/5/2016 12:50:00 PM Turn 10 Red Message Red scores for end of T10

Berbers 1/area = 1

Pats 2/city = 4 + 1/area = 4 total = 8

Franks Emperor = 5, Pavia =3 + 1/city = 5 = 13

908 12/5/2016 12:49:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Edit Victory Points Blue: from 108 to 127
Yellow: from 59 to 59
Red: from 123 to 123
Green: from 88 to 88
907 12/5/2016 12:43:00 PM Turn 10 Red Message If it were closed in the scores I would destroy the Lombards for the 5 points but as there is no need to.

So on to the end of the game

Leave 1 Frank in Pav. Charlie & all remaining Franks move to Flo (gold to 5).Pats retreat to Etr.

Lombards can take a reaction move but it can't interfere with the Frank or Pats move so I shall move on.

Charlie leaves Flo empty & moves to Roma.

Reaction moves are triggered for both Pats & Lombards but as Pats go first the one in Roma move to Flo.

All hail Emperor Charlie.

Call end of game. See map for final positions.
906 12/5/2016 12:06:00 PM Turn 10 Yellow Message Surviving Lombards retreat to RAV ... the end is nigh.
905 12/5/2016 11:09:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message Correction. only the Lombard knight is killed. Lombard can retreat into Rav.
904 12/5/2016 11:06:00 AM Turn 10 Red Message Lombard Knight & 1 Lombard Inf killed for 1 Frank Inf.

889 12/2/2016 1:42:00 PM Turn 10 Blue Message I thought about that Kevin - if I had a shot at passing you on points I'd take that option, but as I don't, I wasn't worried about it.
888 12/2/2016 1:38:00 PM Turn 10 Red Message I guess the only issue is that you should have given the BYZ the option of a naval battle before the Calabria attack but as at this point in the game it probably won't change the final outcome I shall leave it to Jim J whether he wants to play hardball and require the sequence is done again.

When you have played so many Britannia games you get a gut instinct when you get to certain point that victory is yours but I don't have that yet with Italia.
