51 2/14/2019 10:35:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message I drew the Carthage cards, and will have the Romans go first.

50 2/14/2019 10:28:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Draw Strategy cards 7 cards drawn.

49 2/14/2019 10:28:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Hi Todd I vote let's shuffle after this turn.
keep out all those 1 CP cards :)

48 2/14/2019 12:37:00 AM 217 BC Rome Message Shoot. I think I just noticed a problem. I played Truce for OPs last turn so I think that should reshuffle the deck. It would be great if ACTS handled this automatically but since there are 43 cards in deck I don't think it does.

How do you want to handle? Ivan discard,,shuffle and redraw, or we can shuffle after this Turn. Either way is fine with me. Sorry about that.
47 2/14/2019 12:19:00 AM 217 BC Rome Message Hi Larry - i finished up my reinforcements and advanced turn marker in ACTS.

41 2/13/2019 1:32:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Great! We made it through first turn.

Carthage places reinforcements first, so you can go ahead with that. I'll then place Roman reinforcements, roll for Consuls and advance turn marker and then we can draw for new cards.

(Both) Draw one BC from your opponent's hand and add it to your own.

Message from Rome:
I flipped Emporiae in my log. For some reason i didn't see my last Campaign move showing so moved that as well.

For this OP I will place a PC in Mutina
27 2/10/2019 10:40:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message Hi Larry - no problem on delay. The pace of the game is good with me.

I was able to finally figure out how to flip the PCs, but it took some doing. I'm on a Mac, so it may be different for you.

What i did was basically select the PC using Shift-mouse button. The PC gets a little red outline once it's selected, then I hit command-mouse button and a little menu pops up that let's me flip the PC.

If it still doesn't work for you I don't mind flipping the ones you flip on my file update.
26 2/10/2019 9:40:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Hi Todd, sorry for delay, busy weekend here.
Also I can't seem to flip the PC in Emporiae.
I tried with Module 1.3.1, and 1.2 as both Carthage and as an observer, but neither seemed to work.
Any thought's
25 2/10/2019 9:16:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #18: 2 / Traitor in Tarentum

Message from Carthage:
Play for PC, convert Emporiae, and place in Numantia

23 2/9/2019 11:04:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 3 / Numidia Revolts

20 2/8/2019 4:39:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Copy, the wait and see if cards can be played to effect Die rolls.

(Both) Your opponent does not receive any Battle Card bonuses for Spanish Allies for that Combat.

Message from Rome:
PC in Dertosa.

Also, I wanted to make that we hold up rolling for Naval Movement or Mountain Pass Attrition before checking with other player, as there are some cards that can cancel the movement and have to be played before the die roll.

14 2/6/2019 9:16:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #42: 1 / Elephant Fright
(Rome) Play if attacked by elephants. They have no effect on you and the Carthaginian player immediately loses two BCs.

will play this to move Hannibal to Narbo, he will drop off Mago and 2 cu at Emporiae
13 2/5/2019 11:17:00 PM 218 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #6: 1 / Marharbal's Cavalry
(Carthage) Play during any battle. You may use this card as a Double Envelopment BC which (if matched) does not automatically give the defender the initiative.

Message from Rome:
Place PC in Emporiae
12 2/5/2019 11:02:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message No problem on the rules. I've played a few times in the past year, but only played once on ACTS/Vassal, so we will both make our way through this.

I setup a dropbox and will send an invite later tonight after my turn.
11 2/5/2019 7:07:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message I will have the Romans go first then.
And I hope to find a moment to refresh my memory by looking over the rules tonight :)
Also you mentioned a Drop box for a Vassal log file's, I think that's a good idea.

7 2/4/2019 11:53:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message Ok. cool. I will play Rome. I'll place a PC in Nice for the 1-bid.

I think now that the sides are picked we can draw card.

I'm was also thinking of tracking the game on Vassal. If you want to share files I can setup a Dropbox so we can avoid any discrepancies.


6 2/4/2019 10:10:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Ok I will Bid 1 CP.
5 2/4/2019 1:49:00 AM 218 BC Moderator Message Adjusting the game number to 1-12 to accommodate a new tourney entrant.

3 2/3/2019 10:50:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message Hi Larry. No problem. I'm not much of an expert, but we should be fine. You are up to bid on a side. If either of us bid more than 0 for a side, the other player will get to place that many PC points before the game starts. I can also open bid if you want.
2 2/3/2019 10:08:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Thanks Todd, it has been a few years since i have played with ACTS. So you may have to do a little hand holding. I'm not particular with side's but if i have to bid pls let me know.
1 2/2/2019 1:28:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Hi Larry - I went ahead and created the game. We can change sides once that has been decided.

-Todd
