209 11/8/2019 7:17:00 AM 215-214 BC Rome Message I think I would agree with Stuart's interpretation, it seems to match the text on the card.. Never though of using it defensively before, but its not prohibited.

Message from Carthage:
Carthaginian 4th Card: Event:

2 with Gisgo in Mutina GC

Looks like you received Maharbal's for the Messenger. In the battle in Spain I was close to needing it to match a Double Envelopment as I only had the Reserve otherwise.
The question then would have been, is the Counter automatic if played on Defence or a die roll as when played on Attack?
I researched it on CSW and it was discussed a few years back and Stuart ruled at WBC that it would have been automatic. Of course that would only have mattered if I didn't make the 1-3 roll.
