437 4/13/2019 6:55:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message yeah...the african campaign did not go well for romans...nor did my move up north to subjugate those tribes...i think thats twice i had a good handsize lead and just couldnt get the cards to fall...i had 5 L flank out of 9 lol...but yeah that cavalry card quite deadly


anyways i'll set up via ACTS. we'll use same dropbox file (i'll just make a folder to move old files in to)
436 4/13/2019 4:47:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message I thought Hannibal was going to get destroyed when I failed to reinforce him with my first turn. I only had two more 3Op cards - and they were ones I really wanted for their events (Macedonia War and Sicilia Rebels).

But when I saw I had 2 Double Envelopments and you were hitting me with Left Flanks (which I happen to have 3), I took the chance for a complete victory). The Cavalry Card paying off was a big deal!
435 4/13/2019 4:42:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message It was a pleasure Andrew! That failed African venture was what really put you behind - although the Consul random selections were constantly unfortunate.

I'd love to play you again... with switched sides... I think I don't remember how to play Rome. I'll set another ACTS game up later this weekend for us. And a new directory for Vassal.
434 4/13/2019 11:55:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Happy to play another regular game Hannibal if you want, but wasnít meant to be this round for me
433 4/13/2019 11:55:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Figures. I concede. Army completely wiped.

(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.

(Both) Play whenever an opposing army occupies (or enters) space in Gallia Transalpinia or Liguria. The Army immediately undergoes Attrition on the 5-6 column.

405 4/12/2019 10:20:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Discard random Strategy card Operations - 1 / Mutin's Numidians

Message from Rome:
Random discard
404 4/12/2019 12:50:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message I can't seem to play the event in Vassal... I think it is because you are Carthage in Vassal... when I play the card as Rome it is doing the opposite of what I want (which puts the Carthage Marker). When you get a change, can you do it - or else I'll just remember it. You'll probably just end the war next turn anyway :@)
403 4/12/2019 12:40:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #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 Carthage:
I updated the board to show the War. Your play to randomly discard one card and then to make your next play.
402 4/12/2019 12:38:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Set Deck Reshuffle Deck will be reshuffled before next deal
401 4/12/2019 12:37:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Yes... I agree - I said it ended the truce (or break if you prefer... I'm setting the reshuffle for next turn.
400 4/11/2019 6:46:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message I do believe axuillary/reinforcements break truce...it's only when they wouldnt take place that the card couldnt be used then..at least that was my understanding of the truce in rule book
399 4/11/2019 4:59:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Traveling now... but just confirming that the auxiliary card does end the truce
398 4/11/2019 12:33:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message ah hevermind, i'll just add 2 reinforcements up north instead..ill take card back..believe that ends truce as well given played for event
397 4/11/2019 12:32:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #48: 1 / Allied Auxiliaries (Campania)

394 4/11/2019 9:57:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message hm..well pretty sure that cost me the game then lol...i made this move up north thinking i could play this card for it. would have sailed to syrcause instead...i thought siege/subjugation were the same thing with regards to procedure or how they're carried out, but guess i was wrong :)
393 4/11/2019 9:30:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Sorry... I just noticed you rolled twice and the card is talking about siege instead of subjugation. I know the event does not apply. Plus we are in a Truce right now and this is not on the list of the cards that can break the Truce (or be used despite it - like Storms).

You can subjugate neutral tribes during Truce, but that is most assuredly not a neutral tribe.

You can reclaim the card for later use and play something else - take back your loss and subjugation points
392 4/10/2019 6:18:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message lol...just the picture of disorganized roman legions led by inept leaders, smashing against what I imagine are only wooden palisades of the barbarians and getting slaughtered is ridiculous haha

389 4/10/2019 6:16:00 PM 211-210 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:
388 4/10/2019 5:09:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #64: 2 / Truce
(Both) Neither player may enter a space containing an enemy CU or PC while the Truce lasts. The Truce ends when either player uses a Strategy Card as an event.

Message from Carthage:
I don't know... lets go ahead and call a Truce and see what shakes out. No posting as nothing on the board changes.
387 4/10/2019 3:55:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Oh.. never mind with 6MPs you can backtrack and go around the pass... so never mind... my turn.
386 4/10/2019 3:52:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message You would take a non-Alps pass roll would you not (you'd have 9CUs coming across)?
385 4/9/2019 6:28:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message lol i dont think failing to land in italy will cost you game..in fact, if you just sit there in spain, i'll just roll 1 and 2's on my siege attempts in boi and get slaughtered by the barbarians and you'll pull the win haha

381 4/9/2019 2:53:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message I actually can move the General twice by sea according to the Strategy Card list... I'm checking rules to see if the "Return" results in the end of the turn...

Message from Carthage:

378 4/7/2019 6:03:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message good catch...so i'll ad 3 CU in tarquini (bringing to 10) and 2 with marcellus and thens cipio with marcellus (bringing to 17). i just wantd to make sure I could intercept with sciopio's 1-4 die roll if hannibal tried to make a move...if that is ok, you can change this in your file if you go first, or if you want me to go first i'll change it
377 4/7/2019 5:42:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Bottom line... you and me always get to pick your own ranking officer... EXCEPT... No body can ever outrank Hannibal and Proconsuls can never outrank Consuls and Consuls have the special roll during battle when together.
376 4/7/2019 4:50:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message 9.3 Rank
Normally, the owning player may decide which of his Generals will be the commander and which will be the subordinate, and he is free to change the commander before he activates the Army.

In looking at discussions on Boardgamegeek, the consensus is that you get to pick who the commander is at the moment of choice (same for Carthage if Hannibal is not involved). The Consul rolling rules do not apply to Proconsuls - that is a special rule representing the Roman Politics.

Obviously, the 10 CU limit rule will still apply when you activate - although they always defend together if attacked in the big stack... I doubt I will be attacking the 20 CU stack, although one might think it a genius move because you are limited to 20 cards in a fight.
375 4/6/2019 11:01:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message so if i put him with marcellus, then theres 2 proconsuls. do they get same change of leadership die roll like two consuls would?
374 4/6/2019 2:49:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Slight issue with the reinforcements (no problem with your consular army) regarding Scipio Africanus:

"Scipioís Army arrives after
the normal five CUs have been placed and before the two
new Consuls have been elected."

Since the regular 5CUs have to be either in Rome or with any Roman General, I don't see how he can end the turn by himself with 10CUs, unless he is in Rome. You could put him with Marvelous Marcellous and have 20CU there if you want instead.
373 4/5/2019 5:45:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message sounds good. you can decide then who starts
372 4/5/2019 12:05:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Yes you can pick one of them to move... I donít have the rules in front of me now, but my recollection is that if you got in battle there is a 50-50 chance that the other guy will lead. It is I think the first step in the battle sequence
371 4/4/2019 9:29:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message one quick question...i have both consuls in tarquini. they form a "Consular army." I am allowed to activate one of them to move, but both can move together right? it says one is leader, other is "subordinate" but i can choose which one. If so, you may start. just wanted to make sure i didnt have to play 2 cards to activate them

With H.Gisco there, it is not a Overrun. So it is a one-sided battle. I'll make the assumption that you are not playing battle strategy cards.

Marcellus:
10CU+3Ldr+2Allies = 15 cards
H. Gisco
1CU+1Ldr+2Allies-1Fail = 3 cards

(Both) If you use this card as an OC to siege Tarentum, it comes under your control without a Siege die roll. Enemy CUs inside are eliminated.

Message from Carthage:
After a lot of Here I Stand and Virgin Queen, seems strange to be able to take a city in the same impulse... but rechecked and as long as I don't battle, I can make a roll - with this event it is automatic.
