440 6/1/2019 4:32:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message I would like to play this out. How do you feel about it?
439 5/31/2019 9:11:00 AM 206-204 BC Moderator Message This game is adjudicated on time to Rome.

significant absences for Carthage were from
* 3/15- 4/19
* 4/4 to 4/8
* 4/9 to 4/13

Feel free to continue this game to its completion if you like.

438 5/30/2019 6:41:00 PM 206-204 BC Moderator Message This tournament round ends today 5/30/2019.

Can you agree on a result?

If not I will be adjudicating primarily on time used.

If you want to continue playing this game, I can leave it up, but the adjudicated or mutually agreed result will stand for tournament purposes.

I will make a ruling on this game in the next few hours.
437 5/30/2019 2:09:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message Disregard that last comment about the need to play the event. I forgot it swaps for an inactive general.
436 5/30/2019 2:06:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message I see. I misread your response and saw just three names there.

You may not play Senate Dismisses Proconsul because it is not a reaction card.

Not sure why you need to anyhow as all your generals are in different locations.
435 5/30/2019 8:14:00 AM 206-204 BC Rome Message thought I removed five PCs: all three in Transalpinia plus two from Massilia

Indeed -- recognized that S.A. and all 10 CU died

as for the proconsul, if I have the card that replaces him, can I play it now (e.g., prior to moving from Emporiae) or do I have to wait for my next turn?
434 5/30/2019 8:14:00 AM 206-204 BC Rome Message thought I removed five PCs: all three in Transalpinia plus two from Massilia

Indeed -- recognized that S.A. and all 10 CU died

as for the proconsul, if I have the card that replaces him, can I play it now (e.g., prior to moving from Emporiae) or do I have to wait for my next turn?
433 5/30/2019 12:02:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Message First, regarding the proconsul, you may only change your proconsul in the reinforcement phase or with the event Senate Dismisses Proconsul.

Second, you lost to a Double Envelopment which adds +2 to the retreat roll. That means Africanus lost all his troops and also dies permanently. You need to remove two more control markers.

As for the battle itself, once you saw me hitting you with multiple Doubles, you probably should've tried to withdraw from the battle. Now, if you had one more Flank Left in your hand, I could see partial justification in sticking it out one more round, but even then, that's still rather risky.
432 5/29/2019 9:32:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Message Guess I took too much of a risk with the battle; felt my edge in battle rating and going first might work

remove 3 PC in Transalpinia, Nice and Nemausus in Massilia

will continue the campaign -- can I change proconsul with card play before moving the next general?

406 5/23/2019 11:39:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Draw Strategy cards 9 cards drawn.

405 5/23/2019 11:38:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message Regarding your question about Storms, I would presume yes, the general would just arrive alone. Note, your scenario is less likely to occur for the Romans since they rarely sail with a small number of troops that could be eliminated by an attrition roll.

It's more likely to happen to a Carthaginian force sailing with 1.
404 5/23/2019 11:36:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message I agree on 14 CUs in Emporiae before reinforcements. However, the file you sent me has 16. The Roman count of 22 and the Agrigentum count of 11 we agree on.
403 5/23/2019 10:41:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #38: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
will campaign -- will cruise the Med on the condition that I'm reading the rules right in that S.A. cannot be eliminated by storms at sea; if he can be eliminated by such, will do something else

A.S. sails to Emporiae with 10 CU

if storms cannot displace a general, then what happens if he loses all his CU -- does he enter his arrival port alone?
402 5/23/2019 10:01:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Draw Strategy cards 9 cards drawn.

rolling for first consul
396 5/23/2019 9:58:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message appreciate a confirmation on my CU in Emporiae -- believe I should have 14 there before any placements. Somehow, may have screwed it up with my aborted move of S.A.

Assuming that's correct, 3 CU in Rome (25)
2 CU Emporiae (16)
395 5/23/2019 9:21:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Carthaginian Reinforcements

Hanno and Gisgo to 9, Hasdrubal to 8, Mago to 7
394 5/23/2019 9:20:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message well, if there were a battle before the end of the turn, you would be able to remove it before losing a marker that would isolate at the end of the turn

anyhow, Isere and Gergovia both isolate

then, province count 8-9, I lose Araceli (Transalpinia)
393 5/23/2019 9:03:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #4: 3 / Celtiberia Revolts
(Both) If your opponent controls Celtiberia, remove all his PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CU's.

Message from Rome:
won't Isere become isolated at EOT?

Believe this decontrols Celtiberia since you have CU in only two cities with CU

391 5/23/2019 7:22:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 2 / Pestilence

389 5/22/2019 11:52:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message attacks with 10 CU, leaving Nero with 9
388 5/22/2019 11:51:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message I said I may move farther -- S.A. moves to attack Hasdrubal before you get your next play
387 5/22/2019 11:49:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 3 / Numidia Revolts
(Both) Pick either Western or Eastern Numidia and remove all your opponent's PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CU's.

Message from Carthage:
as ops to raise a troop
Hasdrubal back to 6 CUs
386 5/22/2019 11:49:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #41: 1 / Bad Weather
(Both) Play immediately after opponent has moved but before combat. Contrary to his expectations, his General has only move two spaces - return him to the second space he entered.

Message from Carthage:
go back to port
385 5/22/2019 11:35:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message I may move further if you have no sea storm
384 5/22/2019 11:34:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message sorry -- remove Druentia
383 5/22/2019 11:16:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Gergovia is not yours to remove (see log entry 374)
382 5/22/2019 10:43:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message forgot to say -- remove PC from Gergovia
381 5/22/2019 10:26:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #1: 3 / Corsica and Sardinia Revolt
(Both) If your opponent has control of Corsica/Sardinia, remove all his PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CUs.

Message from Rome:
S.A. sails with 5 CU to Emporiae -- any storms?
380 5/22/2019 9:06:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message 2/1
defenders eliminated, but you did manage to whittle Hasdrubal down 1, too
