Entry # Time Turn Player Title Entry
39 6/20/2019 3:54:00 PM 218 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #23: 3 / Numidian Ally
(Rome) Place up to three Roman PCs in Eastern Numidia in spaces which do not contain enemy CUs. If the space contains a Carthaginian PC, the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Rome:
For the event. Flip Cirta, Sifitis and Thamugadi.

I am away from my board, so I will let you do housekeeping (or I can do it tonight). I think the main result is that Taurini and the 3 PCs in Numidia will be isolated, and the Province count will be 7-9 in favor of Rome.

Nice reinforcement. I am going to need a highly competent general in Italy next turn ... and some luck.

35 6/17/2019 9:21:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Congratulation on the nuptials, Roderick. I have no problem putting this game on hold until you are recovered from your honeymoon. I have a one major and a few minor things all with a deadline of July 1 (one of which is my game in the Washington's War tournament), so I am going to be plenty busy. Enjoy the next two weeks.

32 6/17/2019 3:02:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message I'm sorry. I forgot you had a campaign. If I'm making silly mistakes recently, it's cause my mind is barely on my current games as I'm preparing for my wedding this weekend. So, I'm trying to keep my games moving as best i cam for my opponents' sake.

This is also my advance notice that my last move will p probably be someone Thursday evening, possibly Friday morning with the next move probably Sunday evening.

And since you're the Twilight Struggle GM, this is why I cannot start until July.

I appreciate you keeping your move as intended since you're under no obligation not to act on additional information freely given.
31 6/16/2019 5:47:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message I still had Part 2 of a campaign to execute. It was going to be Publius and 10 to Mutina. Is that OK with you? (Not sure it is the best play, with Hannibal moving quickly, but that was my fixed plan, so I will stick to it.)

No weather. You may roll for alps.
