Carthage PCs in Nuoro and Carales
64 8/19/2019 4:43:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Hmm, I'm not seeing any files from you. Are you seeing my files? Sometimes the sync stops working and you have to restart the dropbox app.
63 8/19/2019 10:39:00 AM 217 BC Rome Message Sorry, I did not upload my vsav with the reinf and consuls, but also didn't see anything saved from you after you mentioned uploading? Are we in the same dropboxfolder? I just saved "HRC Ladder T2 R1" not certain if you can see that?

52 8/17/2019 10:33:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message Place 3 CU with P Scipio, now 11. Place 2 with T Longus, now 10.
51 8/17/2019 3:00:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message That's right. I miscounted.

Remove Carthage PC from Arsa

Carthage reinforcements placement unchanged
50 8/16/2019 9:38:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message Carthage controls all Spain (4) and all Africa (4).

Rome control all Italy (7) and Sicilia/Syracuse (2)
49 8/16/2019 9:36:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message I am still not in sync with you. If I understand correctly. P Scipio and 8 CU move to Taurini as final activation of campaign. You wipe out all PCs in Corsica and then place 2 PCs in Bilbilis and Sassari. That results in 9-8 Rome. Feel free to review my file uploaded to the dropbox to compare.
48 8/16/2019 12:54:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Reinforcements

Hanno +1 (n5)
Hannibal +3 (n6 +2 elephants)
47 8/16/2019 12:45:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Sure that's fine. I think you mean P. Scipio moves to Taurini

If that's the case, then I will place my other PC in Sasarri

That will leave make the province count 8-8 then.

If that's correct then it's onto reinforcements.
46 8/15/2019 5:42:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message I'd be fine with reversing the plays if I could also use my second activation of my Campaign to move T Long onto Taurini to hold the PC there vs isolation. Otherwise we both made mistakes at the end of the turn but only you would get to correct yours and not me as well.
45 8/15/2019 5:38:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message OK I re-read the control rules and see I need a majority of spaces to control a province. If you don't mind, can I change my last move to place PCs in Taurini and Billibis instead on Corsica? If so then that pushes the province count to 9-8 Carthage
44 8/15/2019 10:19:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Reviewing the map shared in the dropbox (1.3 Valley Games Version)

Carthage control all Spain except Idubeda (3 spaces Cart 2 spaces Rome, neither has the 4 to control) for three; Carthage controls all Africa for four, net 7. I show Corsica Sardinia as uncontrolled as Carthage has 2 PCs, needs 3 for majority and control).

I concur with your count for Rome at 8 provinces total.

I should have remembered (played too quick while at work) to take the next Major campaign activation and moved P Scip to Taurini to hold that PC then it would be 9-7. but my fault...)
43 8/15/2019 12:30:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Sorry Gallica Cisalpina is neutral so Carthage only has 9 provinces to 8 for Rome.
42 8/15/2019 12:24:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Can you name off the provinces you control and that Carthage controls?

Carthage controls all of Spain, Africa, Corsica, Gallica Transalpina for 10

Rome controls the rest of Italy, Sicily, and Syracuse for 8
41 8/14/2019 11:19:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message I count 8 to 7, favor Rome

Message from Carthage:
Send me a random card and then I have to take my card play
23 8/8/2019 10:35:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message I looked but don't see an email with your email. I tried another invite using the email associated with your name on ACTS, it's a hotmail address. While I understand not wanting an email in the log, anybody who can log into ACTS can just click on your name or browse the list of users and the email is available, unless you are using and trying to keep private another email, in which case I don't have it.
22 8/8/2019 9:55:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Also please don't put emails in the log as these are publicly visible.
21 8/8/2019 9:53:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message I sent you an email today that I didn't receive the dropbox link. Send me another invitation to my ACTS email not the yahoo email as the Yahoo email has recent problems receiving and sending messages recently.
20 8/8/2019 9:42:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message File uploaded to dropbox. Not hearing back from you about whether you can access after my invite, I will assume we will track individual boards. I am most comfortable with the Valley games version of the map, so uploaded the file with that module and included all the actions thus far. You are more than welcome to use or view.
19 8/8/2019 9:41:00 PM 218 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #59: 1 / Ally Deserts
(Both) Draw one BC from your opponent's hand and add it to your own.

18 8/8/2019 9:39:00 PM 218 BC Rome Discard random Strategy card Operations - 2 / Sacred Band

Message from Rome:
17 8/8/2019 8:24:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage
(Both) The Roman must randomly discard on Strategy Card. Carthage receives a -1 die roll modifier for Sea Movement. Once Macedonia is at war, this event becomes playable only by Rome and ends the Macedonian alliance.

Message from Carthage:
Event. Playing as Ops so it comes back into the deck
16 8/8/2019 2:32:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message OK, I will download and use 2.0. If you wish to continue with your next play and include the prior actions in your file, that would be appreciated. Are you intending to use the dropbox to save our files (did you receive the invite?), email, or keep independent boards? I am still not clear on what you agreed to as I don't see anything emailed to me with a vassal log or vsav, or saved in dropbox beyond my two files in dropbox, which happen to use the newest vassal version (which we will not continue to use...)
15 8/8/2019 11:17:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Yes that's the 2.0 one. I will have to make a fix to the Phalanx version which doesn't translate well to vassal apparently without some modifications.
14 8/8/2019 10:30:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Is the AH version the one described at 2.0? If so, I can use that one. Used to the Valley games version but 2.0 is fine as well. The new Phalanx one is very difficult to read, especially with the text sideways and very faint.
13 8/8/2019 12:20:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message I hadn't realized the locations had changed. Since we aren't using the expansion map, I had started my file using the AH version of the Vassal. It's much easier to read than the Phalanx which I need to think about fixing.

ANyways do you want to go with the Avalon Hill module on vassalengine.org or continue with this one?
12 8/7/2019 10:18:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message File uploaded. I shared the folder with pzmcqwire@yahoo.com, is that correct?
11 8/7/2019 10:17:00 AM 218 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #50: 3 / Adriatic Pirates
(Carthage) If you use this card as an OC for Sea Movement and carry no more than 3 CUs plus a General, you do not have to roll on the Naval Combat Table if you embark or debark at either Brundisium, Croton or Tarentum

Message from Rome:
P Scipio and 8 CU move to Verona
10 8/7/2019 10:14:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message New map, I see your placement as Dertosa, Celsa, and Osca.
9 8/7/2019 10:11:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Can we clarify which map we are using? Those locations, two anyhow, use the names from the previous Valley version, whereas the new map shows different names, although I had to get our my hard copy board as they are almost impossible for me to read, faint, and sidewways on the vassal. I created a dropbox and have my the first two rounds updated there, using the new version map. Would prefer that each update so I know what PC location is meant without cross-checking two maps or just use the old version and we can update independent boards if you prefer that.
8 8/7/2019 8:25:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #3: 3 / Numidia Revolts
(Both) Pick either Western or Eastern Numidia and remove all your opponent's PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CU's.
