140 2/18/2019 10:35:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #33: 3 / Major Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY THREE GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
Well we will see if we can keep the good fortune going a little longer!

For the first activation of the Major Campaign, P. Scipio will take 10 CU (14 CU and Varo remain behind), and March into Hannibal's space. Looks like you have lots of options here.
139 2/18/2019 10:23:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message I see your correction now. We are on the same page.
138 2/18/2019 10:19:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Is your Retreat Loss a roll of 2+2 for DE = 4 so a loss of 3 on the 5+CU table?

If so I guess we would lose another PC as well?

Romans are down 3 to 24CU.
137 2/18/2019 10:19:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message And that loses an additional PC marker:

Eastern Numidia - Thamugadi
136 2/18/2019 10:15:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Correction - I lose 3 CU to retreat so Hannibal is at 4 CU.
135 2/18/2019 10:13:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message My PC removals:

Western Numidia - Vescera
Celtiberia - Arsa
134 2/18/2019 10:10:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message 1 elephant loss in from losing the battle and another from the attrition. So Hannibal retreats with 5 CU.
133 2/18/2019 10:09:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message So we both lose 3 to attrition, then I lose 2 from retreat.

131 2/18/2019 10:06:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Can't match it. No reserves at all sucks. I really considered to try to withdraw before the first BC play. Ah well.
130 2/18/2019 10:01:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Yes...that is major unlikely to roll 3, 5+'s in a row!

We will stay and fight. It looks at least initially to be 15 to 20 BC?

64 2/14/2019 10:45:00 AM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #40: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
Concur with you interpretation...I really need to purchase the new game!!

First activation is Longus and his 5 CU from Rome to Sardinia Oristano, then on to Carales to fight Mago. Over to you for any reaction or BC play. I don't have any BC to play.
63 2/13/2019 11:52:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message And on naval movement:

The movement cost to use Naval Movement is equal to
three spaces.

So since bad weather cancels 2 of the 4 movement points basically, there aren't enough left for the naval move. And Storms at Sea forces an attrition roll and not cancellation of sea movement.
62 2/13/2019 11:50:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message From the Valley Games rulebook:

41 Bad Weather: If the Bad Weather card is played during a Naval
Movement, the naval portion of the move is cancelled. The embarking
force must return to its port and remain there for the balance
of the round. This card can only be played against movement,
not against Interception, retreats, Avoid Battle, etc. The card must
be played before the player conducts any naval combat die rolls
or mountain pass Attrition. If played against an Army crossing a
mountain pass or strait, the target Army may not cross the mountain
pass or strait if it needs to use its 3rd or 4th movement point
to do so.
61 2/13/2019 11:47:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message I am not certain that the Bad Weather (card #41) would cancel my move, since my force only moved 2 spaces, they would end up in the space they ended anyway.

To cancel a sea move I think you have to use #60 Storms at Sea.
