526 4/15/2019 8:44:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message Hi Larry. Thanks for the game. I've only played the Carthage side once before, but I know it is rough when Hannibal gets eliminated. I feel I was pretty lucky in that battle.

Thanks for the game as well. I learned a lot playing it and I know I made some rules mistakes along the way. I hope you have a good second round and I hope we run into each other again. If you ever want play ACTS/Vassal game outside of tournament (I'm open to other games) let me know.

522 4/15/2019 4:24:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Just for kickers I have to show a couple of cards I had

521 4/15/2019 4:23:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Hi Todd, back from weekend away...
Looking it over, best if I conceded the game, with Hannibal gone it's to much of a challenge for me to figure out, I was fighting hard enough just to keep him alive most times as well as trying to win the game :)

I see your opponent is waiting in the bracket so good luck, I learnt a few things, but the main thing was I had fun.


520 4/13/2019 3:24:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message HI Larry,

P Scipio got very lucky rolling those high die numbers on the counterattacks. It's what let me play those string of Probes.

I took a look at the rules regarding Hannibal Displacement....they are actually pretty brutal. In addition to the PC losses for the battle, Hannibal also cannot re-enter the game, and there are an additional 5 PC losses that must be taken as a penalty for losing Hannibal.

I will wait until you return and pick the additional 5 PC losses before updating the logfile. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. We are having great outside weather here in N California.


519 4/12/2019 6:15:00 AM 209-207 BC Carthage Message I will wait for the log file... and all the crying to stop before Carthage makes there next card play.
It will be Sunday afternoon at earliest I'm going to be away for weekend.

518 4/12/2019 6:11:00 AM 209-207 BC Carthage Message 1 CU for each goes away, then Carthage will lose another 8 from retreat, and will have to remove 4 PC's
Will take away Thapsus, Zama and Zuccabar in Africa and Hispalis in Spain.
If you want to do them in your log file go ahead.

poor Hannibal has no place to run too, so he and his army will die...
I'm looking in rule, but I don't think he comes back into game. Is that correct?

505 4/10/2019 10:07:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message Hi Larry - i'm a little confused on the Battle logs.

Hannibal is playing for some luck to try and stay alive.

Go to Insubrians and next Battle hope to get a better Battle hand than he has now.

444 4/3/2019 11:59:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hi Larry - the Storms at Sea card should happen first. Also, even with 1 CU, as long as there is a general present than there is no overrun.

So Rome has Flaminus and 3 CU (Varro was left in Lilybauem) v. Mago and 1 CU:

Carthage = 1 + 2 = 3 BCs
Rome = 3 + 2 + 1 (allies in Corsica Sardinia) = 6 BCs
443 4/3/2019 9:25:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message He will be down 2 CU,
so no overrun, unless I have this wrong and the overrun would happen first, but I sure hope not.
