Part 2: Marcellus and all to Mutina to pick up the last CU and then proceed to Taurini with 10.

Probably being stupid here. Guess I will see what you have in your hand now. If I had completed Boii, I think I would feel like I have this game on lock already, but now the future seems quite uncertain.
63 8/16/2019 12:09:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message No reaction. Sail away.

Message from Rome:
I kind of expected that Tribal Resistance. I rarely seem to have quick subjugations. At least you have relieved me of the anxiety over making a final impulse roll that could fail and leave me suffering Hannibal-esque attrition. :-)

Now for the anxiety of how to screw up this campaign. Do you have good cards (charm) for bringing Hannibal into Italy? Or good cards for bringing Mago into southern Italy?

Part 1: Longus and 10 from Agrigentum to Cosa? Any reaction before I continue?
61 8/15/2019 5:23:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #53: 1 / Tribal Resistance

Message from Rome:

Nero, Marcellus and 10 CUs to Verona, drop 1,
continue to Boii, then to Taurini, drop 1,
