9 9/2/2019 11:17:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message OK. I've finished reading the rules, and should be able to make my first move tomorrow evening. The only question I have so far is:

- Under what circumstances does the presence of enemy CUs in a space cause a PC marker there to be converted (Rule 19.2)?

Does it happen automatically if a space is occupied by enemy CUs at the end of their movement? I'm gathering both that (a) this isn't something you can do in the normal course of movement and (b) there is no need to expend a movement point or anything to do this (as in some games).

8 8/30/2019 9:41:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Yes, it is pretty intuitive. Most things will be apparent and then after a few plays you will get some of the nuance.
7 8/29/2019 10:46:00 PM 218 BC Carthage Message Just an update. I'm about halfway through the rules, and hope to finish soon. So far, it all seems pretty intuitive, and I like the relative simplicity.
