298 8/20/2019 3:37:00 AM 213-212 BC Moderator Message Thanks for the update. I will accept the adjudication for Rome at this point per your concession.

If the two of you want to finish this game, I can leave it up and you can finish at your leisure.

I am awaiting the result of one other match t
297 8/19/2019 1:45:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message I was in a dominating position about 4 impulses ago, and then Hannibal failed 5 out of 6 initiative attempts. Now, whileit is not a forgone conclusion (Carthage has not lost any ground in Spain or Africa and the armies are full), but Carthage will be hard-pressed to threaten Italy again.

I think we would be equally at fault for delays, so that is a wash.

If I had to adjudicate this - with Hannibal not being alive, I'd have to go with Geoff and Rome. I have no problem if you went with that decision.

If we could get maybe 2-3 nights of intense playing, we could finish by end of August, but that would be a stretch to accomplish. Feel free to adjudicate in favor of Rome at this point.
296 8/18/2019 10:41:00 PM 213-212 BC Moderator Message This game was supposed to be finished on 8/15/2019.
