120 8/27/2018 5:11:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message OK. Agreed - I forgot the Allies!
119 8/22/2018 5:36:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message You are correct 14 for Hannibal

20 for Scipio 16 +2 + 2 Italien Allies

14.2 Allies
Players receive additional BCs for having allies. A player gains allies by having Political Control of provinces (determined at the moment of the battle). Each province is worth one BC except Eastern and Western Numidia that are worth two.
ITALIAN ALLIES: The Roman player may never receive more than two BCs for allies in Italy and may not count the province of Latium for allies. This reflects that these provinces are already supplying the Roman Legions with recruits and so are already reflected in the design. The Carthaginian player can have up to six allies in Italy (Campania, Lucania, Apulia, Samnium, Etruria and Gallia Cisalpinia).

118 8/22/2018 5:29:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Hannibal is +4, so I think its 10+4 = 14 for me

Also, I only have 16 roman CUs in Ariminum, +2 for P.Scipio, so 18 total.
