I'm only seeing -6 (-4 ports, -1 for Mago, -1 for Syracuse). Did I miss marking one of the naval boxes from an earlier event you played? I'll proceed with my move, but would appreciate another "instructive moment" here. :) Thanks, Mike!

Message from Rome:
2 Ops: Activate Nero

Taurini (drop 2CU n5)

Message from Rome:
144 8/14/2019 10:11:00 PM 216 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:
This is for the event. Rome to discard a card.

I will play it as Ops, though, so it stays in the deck and can be drawn again. If you play it as an event, it is removed from play.
143 8/14/2019 10:09:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message His Charisma skill is very low.

I'm sorry I missed all of your messages about the inadvertent card play. I'm glad you just took care of it. I am not sue how I missed those messages.

(Carthage) Place one Carthaginian CU and a PC in any non-walled city space in Sicilia that contains no Roman CUs. If the space contains a Roman PC the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Rome:
Okay, I'm sure I missed it. Adding 1CU w/Hannibal et al on my map. Here's my play:

1 Op to activate Nero for another Subjugation attempt
139 8/14/2019 7:55:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message Entry 51 is Baeleric Slingers where I added 1 CU to New Carthage. I'll try to confirm with my saved VASSAL files. I save a file after each card.
138 8/14/2019 9:16:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message I'm showing only 8CU+1e in New Carthage to begin the turn, meaning if you take 6CUs with Hannibal, you'd only have 2 remaining in NC (or only 8CUs in Tarraco if you want 3 in NC). Basically, I'm showing 1 CU less than you. I see your last turn RPs placed 1 CU in Carthage, but nothing in NC. What have I missed?
137 8/14/2019 8:32:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #57: 1 / Hanno Counsels Carthage
(Rome) Carthaginian CUs are prohibited from leaving Africa until the Strategy Deck is reshuffled.
