185 8/1/2019 9:17:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Marcellus to Mutina, with Flam and 19.

Varro in Bruttium, with 5, doesn't even get to pack his bags. I guess that inept subjugation really impressed the Senate.

Consular Elections
183 8/1/2019 9:14:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Roman reinforcements.

1 in Bruttium, now 5.
4 in Mutina now 19.

Flaminius is named proconsul.
182 7/31/2019 7:02:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Carthaginian reinforcements

2 CUs to Hasdrubal (to 6)
1 each to Mago/Hanno (to 7) and Hannibal (to 8)

Gisgo returns to Hannibal
181 7/31/2019 4:25:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message No one is subject to winter attrition.

I believe the PC in Pisae is isolated and removed.

Province count is 9-9, no consequences.

Over to you to make your reinforcements and return Gisgo to play.
180 7/31/2019 4:20:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #35: 2 / Diplomacy
(Both) Convert any one non-walled, non-tribal enemy PC Marker in a space without an enemy CU into a friendly PC Marker.

Message from Rome:
Wow. Two Major Campaigns in one hand, and now both Diplomacies in one turn.

Flip Cosa to red.
179 7/31/2019 3:33:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #33: 3 / Major Campaign

Message from Carthage:
ouch!
ok, as ops to raise a troop and bring Hannibal back to 7 CUs
178 7/31/2019 2:42:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Actually, on the 9 column that is 3e.

So Hannibal drops from 7e2 to 5e1. The Messenger earned his pay for sure.
177 7/31/2019 2:09:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message both safe, so only Hannibal loses any

173 7/31/2019 8:16:00 AM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #21: 2 / Mercenaries Desert
(Rome) The Carthaginian player must use the Attrition Table for all his forces on the map not in friendly walled city spaces. Units with Generals are exempt if a separate die roll <= the General's Battle Rating.

Message from Carthage:
as ops for control
Segovia and Segobriga (Celtiberia)
166 7/30/2019 8:54:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message I think the duplications must be caused the by mouse I am using at home. I see a few dupes in another game I have going and I can't find any that are coming on my opponent's plays. Also, I don't think I have seen any after making a play or post form work (as I am now). So maybe I need to replace my home mouse.
165 7/30/2019 7:40:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Fair enough. I wish I knew how to avoid the double pump. I don't take offense at the change of die roll (that could go either way), but the loss of time is annoying. I will try to be vigilant toward the double pump.

Your turn.
164 7/30/2019 7:40:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Fair enough. I wish I knew how to avoid the double pump. I don't take offense at the change of die roll (that could go either way), but the loss of time is annoying. I will try to be vigilant toward the double pump.

Your turn.
163 7/30/2019 12:58:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message I regret to inform you that ACTS "double pumped" again and the first die roll according to the log is a 1
162 7/26/2019 11:36:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message At last, Bruttium flips.

Toletum (Celtiberia)
157 7/24/2019 1:29:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Pretty sure Varro's luck in Bruttium exceeds Hannibal's in withdrawal (though Hannibal's obviously would have been more consequential.)

Message from Carthage:
I guess you're not at WBC.
I had the obnoxiously perfectly balanced hand, and being down 3 cards, I saw no way to win unless, at some point, you got initiative and revealed a weakness

4 Frontals, 2 of both Flanks, 2 Probes, 2 Doubles, and one Reserve

I thought maybe I could attack you with whatever Flank you didn't lead with, but even then, statistically you probably could match me.

lengthy campaign, but during WBC
second activation, Mago and 4 CUs attempt to sail to Croton

-1 for ports, -1 for Mago = -2
152 7/22/2019 9:34:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message I believe you are on a lengthy campaign still.
151 7/22/2019 9:33:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Attrition of 2. Hannibal down to 7e2. Flaminius down to 10.

I actually thought you might beat me straight up as I only had the 3 FA, and 2 R behind that.

Attempt to cancel withdrawal.
148 7/22/2019 9:28:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Huh. In my cyberboard module, Flam's special ability is indicated as pursues or prevents withdrawal on 1-4, but checking the Phalanx rulebook, is says it does not apply to withdrawal. Glad I checked.
147 7/22/2019 9:07:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Out! maybe
Flaminius may block on a 2

119 7/19/2019 8:31:00 AM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #42: 1 / Elephant Fright
(Rome) Play if attacked by elephants. They have no effect on you and the Carthaginian player immediately loses two BCs.

Message from Rome:
This makes it 13 to 16.
118 7/19/2019 1:51:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message elephant charge
do you have Elephant Fright?

if not, feel free to roll for the elephants
117 7/18/2019 9:22:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message I, on the other hand, had 1 DE and 2 Reserves. I stupidly strong hand in a rather low value situation.

Flaminius will stay and fight. I count it at
Carthage = 10 +4 Hannibal +1 ally = 15
Rome = 12 +2 Flam +2 ally = 16
before any cards or elephants.

111 7/17/2019 2:42:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Longus is a 1, though his special ability is initiative on 1-2 when he is attacker.
110 7/17/2019 2:30:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message I believe Longus is a 1, which would make the battle 8-3 before cards, which I assume neither side will play.

If so, deal the cards

So the 3 I had said to put in Croton go in Bruttium (now 5). The other two go to Mutina.

Varro will still be proconsul.

(Carthage) Play during any battle. You may use this card as a Double Envelopment BC which (if matched) does not automatically give the defender the initiative.
