213 2/16/2019 12:42:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage
(Both) The Roman must randomly discard on Strategy Card. Carthage receives a -1 die roll modifier for Sea Movement. Once Macedonia is at war, this event becomes playable only by Rome and ends the Macedonian alliance.

Message from Rome:
Place PC at Tarquinii
Flip Pisae and F.P.
212 2/16/2019 7:33:00 AM 215-214 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #35: 2 / Diplomacy
(Both) Convert any one non-walled, non-tribal enemy PC Marker in a space without an enemy CU into a friendly PC Marker.

Message from Carthage:
Activate Mago in Derda.
1) Mago + 4 CUs to Dertosa. Pickup 1 CU n5.
2) to Saguntum
3) to Dianium
4) to New Carthage. Combine with Hasdrubal n10. Hasdrubal in command.
211 2/15/2019 10:41:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 3 / Major Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY THREE GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
First, Marcellus and no CUs
1,2-Pisae
3-Cosa, pick up 2 CUs
4-Pisae

Second, Fabius + Varro + 7 CUs
1-Verona, pick up 1 CU
2-Mutina
3-Ariminium
4-Firmum Picenum
210 2/14/2019 9:49:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #23: 3 / Numidian Ally
(Rome) Place up to three Roman PCs in Eastern Numidia in spaces which do not contain enemy CUs. If the space contains a Carthaginian PC, the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Carthage:
Place PCs:
Sena
Pisae
Firmum Picenum
209 2/14/2019 1:10:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Message I started with five FLs so I figured it was a good tactic. At the end I only had one DE, the remaining FLs and a bunch of Frontal Assaults, so it was getting nervewracking.
208 2/14/2019 1:06:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message Marcellus did roll well on his initiative rolls but too bad he didn't learn his lesson from the last major Roman loss -- only 2 FLs again and no Reserves.
207 2/14/2019 1:03:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message Fabius
206 2/14/2019 11:07:00 AM 215-214 BC Carthage Message Before I do my move (which will probably have to wait until I get home), which Consul is in command? Doesn't seem to be a good way in VASSAL to show that, but it will matter for possible interception.
205 2/14/2019 11:05:00 AM 215-214 BC Carthage Message Wow what a relief.
I would have lost on another flank right.
I almost voluntarily didn't match your initial probe to take a minor loss and a retreat, but thought I could win so decided to fight it out. That was almost a huge mistake - Marcellus was a very tough opponent!
204 2/14/2019 10:28:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Message Marcellus loses 5 in retreat roll, 2 in battle attrition, and another for entering Boii (stopping there). [with Varrro/Fabius now at 7 CUs]

Hannibal loses 2 non-elephant CUs [now at 5/1e]

Lose Pisae, Brundisium, Aleria, and Firmum Picenum

177 2/13/2019 6:18:00 AM 215-214 BC Carthage Message Hannibal will stand in place, ready to receive the attack.
Due to the diminishing deck and the suspicion that the Romans have concocted a nefarious plan to spook my lone elephant, I will not conduct an elephant charge.
No strategy card play for me - you may play any and then proceed with battle cards. Looks like 15-15 on cards - important battle!

165 2/11/2019 1:01:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #26: 3 / Syracuse Allies with Carthage
(Carthage) You immediately gain control of Syracuse (any Roman units inside are eliminated. Syracuse provides a -1 modifier for Sea Movement

Message from Carthage:
Flip Syracuse to Carthaginian.
No file right now - can't make one.
However, I believe there is no attrition or isolation.
Province count now 12-6, so you have 6 PCs to remove and then it's on to the next turn.
164 2/11/2019 11:00:00 AM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #46: 3 / Allied Auxiliaries (Samnium)
(Rome) Place two Roman CUs with any General in Italy if SAMNIUM is Roman controlled.

Message from Carthage:
Ignore this roll - need some random numbers for another reason :)

160 2/10/2019 4:44:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Also, if you agree, let me know which 2 PCs (instead of 3) you want to lose.
159 2/10/2019 4:42:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message You rolled a 3 for attrition and 5 for retreat.
With 3 rounds of combat, a die roll of "3" is no losses, correct?
Therefore, of your 6 CUs, you lose 4 in the battle, one more for retreating through my PC in Insubrians, and end in Verona with Longus, Varro and 1 CU. This also means you only lose 2 PCs after the battle.
Finally, Hannibal still has 6/1e.
Before I continue, please verify and let me know if you want to change your move.
158 2/10/2019 12:33:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #54: 2 / Treachery Within City
(Both) If you use this card as an OC to conduct a siege, you may roll twice on the Siege Table and use both results.

Message from Rome:
Marcellus + 10 CUs
1-Falerii
2-Ariminium
3-Mutina and stop

141 2/9/2019 9:54:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #24: 3 / Sophonsiba Seduces a Numidian Kin
(Carthage) Pick either Western or Eastern Numidia and place up to three Carthaginian PCs in that province in spaces which do not contain enemy CUs. If the space contains a Roman PC, the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Carthage:
Activate Hannibal.
Entire army moves out yet again.
1) to Verona - overrun 1 CU there.
2) to Boii.
You have opportunity for intercept.
If no interception:
3) To Taurini to attack Longus/Varro.
For the attack, doesn't really matter who is in command, so probably don't need to roll. I will conduct an elephant charge. No cards from me to affect the battle.
140 2/9/2019 9:07:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #19: 1 / Senate Dismisses Proconsul
(Both) If there is a Roman Proconsul on the map other than Scipio Africanus, it is removed and replaced with an unused Roman General. The player playing this card determines the replacement.

Message from Rome:
Replace Nero with Marcellus
139 2/9/2019 9:05:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Lose PC at Mutina

136 2/9/2019 1:14:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Battle card #41 Double Envelopment (modify retreat by +2, lose initiative)

Message from Carthage:

132 2/9/2019 1:12:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Success.
Rome gets 2 CUs - 1 elephant = 1 card.
Carthage gets 7 CUs + 4 Hannibal + 2 allies = 13

130 2/9/2019 1:09:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #17: 1 / Surprise Sortie
(Both) Remove 1 Siege Point from any one Walled City

Message from Carthage:
Hannibal will continue to play whack-a-mole.
He takes his entire army north one space to Mutina to attack the 2 CUs there. I'm assuming you won't have cards since you didn't last time, so I'll start with the traditional elephant charge (but with only one elephant, sadly).
129 2/9/2019 11:04:00 AM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #30: 3 / Carthaginian Siege Train
(Carthage) Place the Siege Train Marker with any Carthaginian General. A General with the Siege Train ignores the -1 die roll modifier applied against Carthaginian sieges.

Message from Rome:
PCs at Firmum Picenum, Sena, Terventum.
128 2/8/2019 9:08:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Missed that - you're right.
Hannibal, Gisgo and 6/1e end in Ariminum.
Both of your CUs eliminated.
I think the Roman PC stays since the card says I can remove the PC from any space I enter that doesn't contain CUs, but when I entered, you were there.
127 2/8/2019 9:02:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message I don't get any allies without general.
126 2/8/2019 9:01:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Oops - I only have 8 CUs so 14 cards total.
125 2/8/2019 8:58:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message You should get 2 BCs for 2 CUs + 2 BCs for Allies - 2 BCs for elephant charge = 2, so I think we still have to fight the battle.
Hannibal gets 9 CUs + 4 Hannibal + 2 allies = 15
124 2/8/2019 8:57:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Not sure if the PC at Ariminium gets removed.
123 2/8/2019 8:55:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Hannibal loses an elephant -- well done Roman garrison! Will lose PC at Enna.
