216 10/17/2019 1:12:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message Ok, so I believe then I am up since Eric said he posted a log

215 10/5/2019 11:00:00 AM 373-362 BC Greek Message New file up. I took control back in Thurii.
214 10/5/2019 10:45:00 AM 373-362 BC Greek Message Yes, I think I was reading the chart wrong. I see that the number of CUs affects whether losses are inflicted by a 4, 5, or 6 roll, but all three dice are still used. I'll make an updated file with my additional CU loss and my additional support.

213 10/5/2019 10:41:00 AM 373-362 BC Greek Message The way I read the rules, you only use the first 2 die results for determining losses because you only had 2 units in the battle. Am I reading the combat losses chart incorrectly?
212 10/5/2019 1:12:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message Also Eric, you lost 2 CU's (each of my 6's were W1 results so you finish with 3 CU left)
211 10/5/2019 1:10:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message Eric, check 12.4.5 of most recent rules (2nd printing also on GMT). retreating force loses 1 CU for each hostile space entered on retreat and additionally 1 for each enemy CU encountered on teh retreat path. that force could have been much larger adn still evaporated on retreat path. this is what I feared would happen with Thurii but I wanted to at least be a thorn in your side but now you get free support. at least the CU's did some damage to you also.
please place 1 support and then i will go.
210 10/5/2019 1:07:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message good news for you. since you won the battle despite loss of life, you force me to retreat. therefore i have to retreat to nearest final space that is friendly controlled or has more friendly CU than in retreat force and both of those are farther than 2 away and so sicne i'm retreating through hostile terrain to get to Terracina or Capua, i'm screwed and lose both CU's.

You as the Greeks therefore get to place 1 support since those losses count. i've made a log for losing my troops and you make an additional one with your support usage before I go as Rome for my AR.
209 9/30/2019 9:32:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message Sorry about all of that. Rome is up.
208 9/30/2019 9:27:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message Just to make this even more confusing. Log 186, that I said placed a minor leader in Thurii, did no such thing. It placed the minor leader in Capua. But that is where the units from Thurii who are defeated will need to retreat to and it will not affect the losses in the battle, so I think we are square.
207 9/30/2019 9:25:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message Nope, a couple things wrong there. Iíll look st log and advise but first and foremost even if you won the combat you will be losing men due to my 6ís.
206 9/30/2019 9:24:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message Hold up. I did that wrong. Greece is first, Rome is second. So......Greece wins, but only 15 to 13. Not 9 to 20, as I had thought.

Combat losses are different too. No losses for Rome, but 1 loss for Greece.

Rome must retreat.
205 9/30/2019 9:19:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message Greece wins. 4 losses for Rome, 0 for Greece. That wipes out Roman CUs there and sends the minor leader back out of play.
204 9/30/2019 9:14:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 6

Message from Greek:
First 3 are attack, last 3 are defender. Greece gets +7 modifier (can that be right?). 4 for force modifier and 3 for superior leadership. Rome gets +1 for fighting in a friendly-controlled space.
203 9/30/2019 12:54:00 PM 373-362 BC Roman Message Placing minor generals is a free action as long as you have a free one to place and if not you can remove from one spot and reposition elsewhere , I just forgot to log.

See page 9, rule 8.3. So in that case take one of my uncommitted minor leaders and it will give me a +1 for DEM. You are still the favorite
202 9/30/2019 12:16:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message In file 186, you did say you were going to add a minor leader (or 2 minor leaders). I don't quite know how to account for the discrepancy between the map and ACTs.

Separately, how can you activate a leader and also place two minor leaders? I wasn't sure what all you were doing with a single 2 ops value card there. Can you explain the intent?
201 9/30/2019 11:07:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message welp, i screwed up and forgot to put a minor leader there, roll the battle
200 9/30/2019 11:00:00 AM 373-362 BC Roman Message viewing teh map and then will respond. i hope I put a minor leader there, can't remember.

184 8/28/2019 6:36:00 PM 373-362 BC Greek Message I have lost track of who is up (and the turn order, actually.....does it just go clockwise around the board?). Anybody know who is up? It doesn't seem like I should be up as I just played a card most recently.

151 6/5/2019 1:04:00 AM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Just realized that the Romans took a VP location from the Greeks so when the Romans went up to 7 VPs, the Greeks went down to 5 VPs.

Greeks should thus be at the end of the reinforcement phase, so they can make adjustments if they wish after the Gauls' upcoming reinforcement.
