579 9/16/2019 1:43:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message You are right about the extra PC losses when Hannibal is eliminated. So I would have to remove 8 PCs.

I don't think I can recover from that, so I will concede now.

Thanks for the game. I enjoyed the pace. It makes it fun to keep things going like that. Good luck in your next game.

Attrition
577 9/16/2019 1:24:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message WE should roll for attrition for Nero, but Hannibal does not have a safe place to retreat to, so everyone is elim.
576 9/16/2019 1:22:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Nero continues to have Hannibal's number this game. I'm unclear why all CUs are lost. Don't you just do a normal attrition roll?
575 9/16/2019 1:16:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Another loss for Hannibal. This time, all CUs and Hannibal are eliminated and Gisgo goes to the turn track (but no more turns).

I'll have to look at the map later to see which PCs to remove.

546 9/16/2019 7:36:00 AM 203-201 BC Rome Message I'll stay and fight. BCs look right to me. I'll deal then you start. Here's hoping Nero continues his luck against the mighty Hannibal...
545 9/15/2019 9:31:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Right, no allies in the province of Liguria.
So Hannibal moves to Pisae.
Nero can avoid or stay for a battle.
It looks like it would be 13 BCs Rome, 10 BCs Carthage

544 9/15/2019 8:49:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message So, if no Allies in Genua, I'll wait in Pisae and see what you do.
543 9/15/2019 8:49:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Hang on a second...I'm unsure about the allies situation on this part of the map. If that isn't part of Italy (and I don't get +2BCs, then I don't want to Intercept). Is this right?
542 9/15/2019 8:47:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Nero intercpets in Genua. I show BCs as 14R-10C. I'll go ahead and deal. If you agree with BC distribution, over to you to play the first card. Yet another Nero-Hannibal showdown!

(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 Rome:
Event: trying to reduce Hannibal's army one more time.

Since you're AFK I'll go ahead and roll the exemption roll and any resutling attrition

Message from Rome:
I'll go ahead and stick with my move, so here's my attrition roll. Note that I'm taking the Mutiana-Faesule pass, so I have an opportunity to pick up that 1CU there after rolling for attrition. I'll post my full move again for clarity after this roll.

-2DRM b/c non-Alps pass


528 9/14/2019 11:14:00 AM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Mutina to Fasalue is over a pass (a -2 pass). I don't think Nero can make it to Cosa if he goes around the pass.

I will be away from my computer until tomorrow night.
