272 8/13/2019 11:22:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Just realized my comment about 5s and 6s may not make sense. I was thinking about my other Hannibal game (on the ladder) where I have been getting amazing attrition rolls that have decimated Hannibal's force from 8e2 down to 4e1 on the very first turn. Crazy stuff.
