Message from Rome:
Well, now I am just making bad plays by not returning to stare at my board often enough. Should have left a CU back in Verona.

Play this event to clear out Western Numidia.

I count the provinces as 11-6 in favor of Carthage. For consequences, clear out the 4 red PCs between the Alps and Spain and remove the PC in Mutina.

187 9/12/2019 12:24:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #64: 2 / Truce
(Both) Neither player may enter a space containing an enemy CU or PC while the Truce lasts. The Truce ends when either player uses a Strategy Card as an event.

Message from Rome:
Last night I got around to updating the board I maintain on my home computer (and got off of relying on memory with checks of the log), and it is just amazing who awful my position is, especially given the remarkably auspicious start the game had for Rome. I think it will be hard to turn this around given that Africanus is still a whole turn away.

I will have to try and staunch the bleeding with the Truce, and cross my fingers that you don't have charm, which would be a backbreaker at this point.
186 9/11/2019 1:47:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #27: 2 / I have come into Italy ...
(Carthage) Play if Hannibal is in Italy. Convert two Roman non-walled PCs into Carthaginian PCs in any space in Italy which does not contain Roman CUs.

Message from Carthage:
I believe there's a famous quote by Hannibal about the endless stream of Roman replacements that's appropriate here.

C5.

As event to convert:

Terventum

181 9/10/2019 4:50:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message I concur. Verona is empty. Not sure how I missed that when I searched the log for Verona.

Paestum is removed for consequences. Carry on.
180 9/10/2019 1:26:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Message I believe Verona is empty of any PC since entry #68.

We should clarify before proceeding.
179 9/10/2019 9:14:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Message Scratch that. If Verona is Red (which I think it is from the log) then remove Verona. Otherwise, remove Paestum
178 9/10/2019 9:11:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Message Remove Paestum for battle consequences.
177 9/10/2019 9:10:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Message Well, that at least was the best result I could hope for.
Hannibal loses 1 to 7e1.
Marcellus loses 3 and retreats to Verona where he now has 9.

175 9/10/2019 9:07:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Play Battle card #47 Reserve (use as any other card)

Message from Rome:
Play this for Round 3 and then Marcellus cannot keep up in Round 4.

What a ridiculous hand I had. 4DE 4FL 3P 2FA 1FR 1R. Against anyone but Hannibal, it might have been awesome. But with Hannibal's Probe ability and my weakness at right and center, there was no way I could lead with a DE. My only hope was for extremely bad initiative from Han, or that somehow you also had enough FL to prefer that suit.

Message from Rome:
Well the move you made is the "interesting" one, and if Marcellus fails his intercepts, it will get too interesting. I need to have two tries, so:

1st roll is for intercept in Boii (need 2).
2nd roll is for intercept in Mutina if the Boii roll fails (need 3).
149 9/5/2019 2:34:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message Yes, and if Rome had been able to close the deal on Boii during those first 2 turns of Hannibal's impoverishment, I would feel quite comfortable despite the situation in Syracuse.

But now Hannibal is back to full strength and the board is ... interesting, as you say.
148 9/5/2019 2:31:00 PM 215-214 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #15: 1 / Iberian Recruits
