34 7/18/2019 3:48:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message Back to you for auguries and, potentially, your next operation.
33 7/18/2019 3:35:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Chawn:
Troezen 1-3, Idhra 4-6
32 7/18/2019 3:23:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Chawn:
Auguries roll with +1 drm for two leaders out.
31 7/18/2019 3:22:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message regarding your earlier question about force levels, we can completely discard the strategy matrix. We only need to use the log of resources.
30 7/18/2019 10:14:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message For some reason ACTs did not send me a copy of your last message by email. And there was me thinking I had read the rules. Please proceed.
29 7/15/2019 5:06:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message Hi Henry, I'm afraid that you can't choose Corcyra as the target of a Cause Rebellion Strategy for two reasons: (1) It is occupied by and enemy force and (2) it is a Coalition Space. For the latter point: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2221400/coalition-space-definition. Are you happy for me to assume you would have chosen another space and proceed with my turn?
28 7/15/2019 11:28:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message Question - do we abide by the expedition force structure outlined in Strategy Matrices? I imagine not.
27 7/15/2019 11:20:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message Back to you Treasury left 1700
26 7/15/2019 11:19:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Henry:

STRATEGY - Cause Rebellion - Athenian Ally - OBJECTIVE - Corcyra - pay 100 roll die succeeds on a 6
25 7/15/2019 11:16:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message I never have played it that way and would expect the scenario to specifically state that an Auguries roll was necessary for Athens before their first activation.
24 7/15/2019 11:05:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Henry:
Auguries roll for Spartan 2nd Operation
23 7/15/2019 11:05:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message Theoretically your operation would have ended but I cannot see anywhere in the Campaign set up that would indicate that this is the case.
22 7/15/2019 11:02:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Henry:
OK with your move except you also should have rolled for Auguries as the Siege of Potidea was your first activation?
21 7/14/2019 8:34:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message Logfile submitted. If you are happy with everything I've done there, you can continue by first consulting the Auguries to see if you can continue with Operations. I think you can continue unless you roll a 6 in this case.
20 7/14/2019 8:17:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Chawn:
1-3 Troezen
4-6 Idhra
19 7/14/2019 7:05:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message I've just had a look at your file. I see a couple of issues: You need to move via the shortest path (which you've done) with equidistant paths selected randomly. So when going from Panactum to Thebes, you must select the path randomly and not just choose the path which allows you to ravage the most. The second issue is that you don't ravage spaces until your expedition is assembled (5.8). Thus, neither Platea nor Panactum should get ravaged. I'll correct this in my file.
18 7/14/2019 6:50:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message I think the rules are clear on this point. We alternate doing Operations (Section 5) until we both either pass or fail at Auguries rolls. Only after that do we proceed to 6.0 Combat.

So it is now my turn to carry out my operation.
17 7/14/2019 6:44:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message Sorry for the confusion - I misinterprted the die result for Panactum as applying to
Declea and thought there was a die roll missing - forgetting we had agreed to make Interception optional.

Log 002 updates board. Have recorded Treasury total in a Public Note However I now have a problem. As part of the Initial Operation process do we proceed immediately to Combat phase or do we carry out all Operational activations and then move to the Combat pahse
and resolve all combats then. I think we should resolve as part of each individual Operation process but I don^t think
the rules are as clear as they could be. If you agree then I need to establish a siege at Declea. What do you think?

Sparta - 4 HOP + 1 CAV
Corinth -2 HOP (A)
Thebes - 2 CAV (A) & 2 HOP (A) -

16 7/14/2019 4:07:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message In a two-player game, Interception is voluntary (p. 14 of Playbook). I have chosen to intercept in Panactum, but failed my roll. I then chose not to intercept in Decelea. This is a clearly stated in the ACTS Journal for our game.

Over to you to complete your operation and pay costs.
15 7/13/2019 2:23:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message I'm confused.... I rolled for Panactum interception and the roll failed.
14 7/13/2019 1:48:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message Yes I am playing using the 2 player rules but I think it wise to anchor our operations on those outlined in the Strategy Matrix. Difference being we chose the objective rather than roll for them. I think your overlooked INTERCEPT 1 Panactum - Green STRAT. Once you have rolled for that I will update the board but not before tomorrow.
13 7/12/2019 5:04:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message Just checking: We are playing with the two player rules on page 14 of the playbook, right?
12 7/12/2019 4:41:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message No interception in Decelea.
11 7/12/2019 4:39:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1


Message from Chawn:
Panactum interception roll
Success on 4-6
10 7/12/2019 3:13:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message Hi Henry, This all looks good to me. I'll intercept. My understanding is that we still need to roll as in 5.6. Intercept happens on a 4-6 and fails on 1-3. As I understand the rules, all the units in Athens participate in the interception and potential battle even though the cavalry is the only unit exerting a ZOI into the space. Correct? If so, shall I proceed with the rolls?
9 7/12/2019 3:02:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Change Player 0 player Player 0 player changed from Chawn to Chawn
8 7/12/2019 2:40:00 PM Turn 1 Henry Message My proposed Initial Operation

STRATEGY - Attack Athens - OBJECTIVE - Declea

Sparta - Activate 4 HOP + 1 CAV - cost 0

Assembly Point 1 - Corinth - add 2 HOP (A) - cost 400

INTERCEPT 1 Panactum - Green STRAT

Assembly Point 2 - Thebes - add 2 CAV (A) & 2 HOP (A) - cost 800

TOTAL cost of Activation 1200


7 7/12/2019 2:39:00 PM Turn 1 Henry Message Chawn

I have created a log - PWCHAHEN - GT1 - SPA - 001 - showing what Sparta intends to do in its first activation. I have marked the route using Spartan "Strategy" markers. My idea is that you can:

a) confirm the details of my proposed move as correct (or otherwise)

b) if correct - roll for the 2 Interceptions. In this context I think the the Skirmish procedure at 5.7 has sufficient pre-conditions to avoid the "trolling" effect I mentioned in my ACTs post

Once these have been agreed I will then move the Expedition to the Objective and pay the Activation Costs.

What do you think?

6 7/12/2019 5:29:00 AM Turn 1 Chawn Message This sounds like a good proposal. Let's try it and see how it goes. It should still make turns faster as half of interceptions will fail based on the doe roll.
5 7/12/2019 5:21:00 AM Turn 1 Henry Message A further proposal on interception. The moving player rools for the interception but, if successful, the non Operational player must have the option to accept? Otherwise as Spartan I could troll around with a stack of Spartan +2 Hoplites hoping to entice a weak Athenian force into battle. Or is that the intention of the rule?
4 7/11/2019 2:30:00 PM Turn 1 Henry Message Rolling for intercept is fine with me. Will try and make first log tomorrow.

2 7/11/2019 1:38:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Edit names of Custom values
1 7/11/2019 1:37:00 PM Turn 1 Chawn Message Hi Henry, I've set up the game in ACTS and Dropbox. Over to you to take your first turn.

Do you want to play that we roll for intercept all the time? This will save a good deal of time and is the default when playing solo. It's okay if you don't want to. I just thought I'd ask.
