156 5/10/2019 10:44:00 AM 215-214 BC Carthage Message Thanks for the game Jean-Louis! Agreed it seems pretty tough at this point. We only had two battles but you had the right response cards in both cases and I was lucky to win those. You were unlucky too when my Philip card made you lose Messenger.

149 5/8/2019 6:28:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Message I agree itís a bit arcane, but I believe thatís the WBC interpretation. See for example message #81 in the BPA 2-17 ACTS log.

I donít mind if you wish to ask Tim to make a ruling on this for our tournament.
148 5/8/2019 6:22:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Message See 12.4 here:
https://grognard.com/info1/hanrules2.pdf

The wording is: ďIn a battle caused by a successful interception, the intercepting player receives one extra Battle Card to simulate the effects of surprise.Ē

The key here is Ďbattle caused byí. If there were only 1 CU or none before the interception there would be no battle in the absence of the interception and there would be a bonus BC for the interception. If there were 2 CUs or more there (as is our case) then a battle would occur anyway and the interception would not give a bonus BC.
147 5/8/2019 3:21:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message I did not know the rules about no bonus for interception Where I can find it?
146 5/8/2019 2:29:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Message Hereís my count for BCs:

Varro: 11 = 10 (CUs) + 1 (General) + 2 (Allies) - 2 (Elephants)
Hanno: 11 = 9 (CUs) + 2 (General)

Varro outranks Scipio, and there is no interception bonus since a battle would have occurred anyway. If you agree, feel free to deal BCs.
