355 8/20/2019 5:43:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hi Tim, yes we have completed, I looked on the BPI site but didn't see a link or forum for AAR. maybe im not looking hard enough :)
But it was a fun game with Andrew, I want to thank him for his patience, my slow pace of play could be an issue, (a busy summer).
Thanks for doing this.

353 8/12/2019 7:06:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message ill try carthage again...i'll send you an invite
352 8/11/2019 11:09:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hi Andrew, in my last Game I played Hannibal and exactly the same thing happened, Scipio A showed up did one battle with Hannibal and it was game over.

The move on Carthage was one that just fell in my lap Nero could move 6 on a campaign card, well I sailed Nero to Africa because he was the only one that could move on a 1 and in that hand I had lots of 1 cards, if not for that I probably would have sent another leader.

Im not sure when the next BPA round starts, so sure lets do a side game.
If you want to switch sides we can or your try Carthage again.

351 8/10/2019 3:11:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message unfortunately im pretty much doomed. i concede...good game...i'll have to remember that connection from cirta...killed me lol

if you want to rematch on the side or play another game, let me know.happy to keep playing!

313 8/4/2019 10:55:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hi Andrew, not going voluntarily <5 makes sense to me...
for pace of play, lets play on...
so do you want to stay in Rome or come to Capua ?
312 8/4/2019 3:38:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message hm thats interesting..im under impression that if counsels can't be left with < 5 CU, i see no reason why a procounsel (who would be inferior) would be left with < 5 CU as well...if that is the case, scipio africanus could attack rome with 7 CU + 4 from rome + 4 from scipio + 2 allies for 17 vs hannibal 13 (if i intercept its 14v18 so net difference is same but ill lose siege point)...

so not sure how you want to proceed? we can ask on BGG or ask moderator, though honestly i'm pretty dead one way or other
311 8/4/2019 1:56:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message will send bty to see if intercept happens.

also Hannibal can intercept if he wishes into Capua.

I will do an intercept roll
308 8/4/2019 1:52:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Next General will be Varro he will leave Carthage will 8 CU and go to Zama.

298 8/4/2019 8:47:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message for consults, should it be varro and marcellus? if you roll a 6 first, varro is up (since publisu scipis is on map, dont count his space) and marcellus would be with 4? im assuming that is way you want, otherwise if its a 4 and 6 it would be and paulus which would be worse hhaha..and yes on province count, not sure why vassal says 10-7 when there are indeed 18

273 7/30/2019 9:26:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Hi Andrew, well this is not good...
I think I will put 4 CU's inside Rome and do battle with 4 CU's.
Now I don't like to be what I call a Got'ya gamer, some things I think to consider is a General in Italy can take Reinforcement's, I do see where if Rome is Besieged it can not place Reinforcement's, but if Scipio can get out of the Battle he can receive them.

Also next turn is the arrival of Scipio Africanus with his CU's, and I noticed in 20.7 is the rules on relief Army's and that the CU's inside a city can add to the battle.
I know lots of words, but just thought's I had.

But for right now... lets do Battle in Rome with Scipio and 4 cu's taking on Hannibal.

272 7/30/2019 10:18:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message i will go to rome..now from waht i read, if there is no battle, i can siege the city. if there is a battle, i cant. you can onyl hide 5 guys inside, so it seems that there will be a battle with at least 3 units if you choose. also once inside city, rome cant get reinforcements, so i believe you'll only be able to place 2 in africa with your guys

anyways let me know if you choose to do a big battle out front or not

268 7/29/2019 9:33:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Hi Andrew, finally Im back home...
I thought I could get in some of my moves at the Con but Room Wifi was not that good and each time I went to the lobby for a better signal, something came up and I would miss the opportunity. (Something came up was I had a game to play :))
The Most I played was Combat Commander on Wedensday and B-17 on Thursday, I also got in some Napoleons Trimuph (a great game) on Saturday. And then it was travel home on Sunday...

Now for you question, yes I believe if you Seige Rome the troops can go inside, but for game play this turn If Hannibal moves on Rome P.Scipio will try and intercept and do battle, so just roll to see if they intercept, if they don't then they will go inside Rome and hope for some help to arrive next turn.
267 7/26/2019 9:49:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message no worries, enjoy! play any good games?

also, if hannibal attacks rome, and you run inside..i can immediately assult right?
