(Both) If your opponent has control of Corsica/Sardinia, remove all his PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CUs.

Message from Carthage:
Hannibal is trying a naval move on his own. -1 for trying to slip out and abandon his troops. -2 because he is going to New Carthage. +1 for the PC marker in Croton. I have a 50/50 chance of making it.
105 9/8/2019 7:25:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message No campaign for the Romans. Over to you to decide who goes first.

First Consul - from left to right - 8 sided die.
99 9/8/2019 7:21:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message OK. One minor correction to the force placement. Varro and his gang were actually one space to the left of Heracles. I moved them. Flaminius was declared Proconsul in honor of his epic victory over Hannibal at Tarentum, while Varro and Longus return to the selection block. Over to Consul selection.
98 9/8/2019 7:12:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Draw Strategy cards 7 cards drawn.

81 9/8/2019 6:33:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Deal 'em. This is probably the last turn.
80 9/8/2019 6:32:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message I forgot to move you off Hercales. I got the intercept, so I am 4 for Hannibal, 2 for CU and one for the intercept. I had to do as I have no place else to retreat to.
79 9/8/2019 6:31:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message OK. Succesful intercept. BC numbers are the same, but now you have a place to retreat to.
78 9/8/2019 6:30:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Looks like Romans with 11 BC's 8 Cu +1 for the leader, plus 2 Allies. Carthos with 7 BC's 2 CU, 4 for Hannibal, and 1 for the tribe. If you agree, I will deal the Battle cards.

75 9/8/2019 6:28:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Whoops. Missed your placement of those two CU's. I wondered why they were there. Thought it was a mistake. OK - Reset and to the battlefield!
74 9/8/2019 6:25:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Siege roll? Hannibal is there with 2 units. He can fight.
73 9/8/2019 6:25:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message 1 Siege point earned and placed.

Message from Rome:

71 9/8/2019 6:20:00 PM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #41: 1 / Bad Weather
(Both) Play immediately after opponent has moved but before combat. Contrary to his expectations, his General has only move two spaces - return him to the second space he entered.

Message from Rome:
Varro wants a piece of this action. Activate Varro, the Proconsul Longus and 8 SP's in Rome and move to the Bruttium tribe where Hannibal is a fugitive - tribe is place under siege. Siege roll...
70 9/8/2019 6:16:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Your move. Can you press home the attack and finish me off?
69 9/8/2019 6:14:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #13: 2 / Bruttium Recruits
(Carthage) Place two Carthaginian CU's with any General located in Lucania

Message from Carthage:
Ok. Hannibal gets two CU. That was a catastrophe.
68 9/8/2019 6:12:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message OK. Send me the move file.
67 9/8/2019 6:12:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Hannibal loses everything. 5 in the retreat, three for moving through three of your PC markers, plus 2 for the original loss. He is not displaced, because he made it to the tribe. I lose FIVE PC markers. I'll fight on, at least for the moment.
66 9/8/2019 6:06:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

6


Message from Carthage:
Retreat loss roll.
65 9/8/2019 6:06:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Correction. Only three CU's lost for retreating through Roman PC's. The fourth space is that friendly tribe.
64 9/8/2019 6:04:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Since you lose a CU for every unfriendly space entered - looks like that would be four CU's on your next shortest route to that friendly tribe in the south. That plus whatever your retreat table losses are is going to most of the rest of Hannibal's force. Might be towel time....
63 9/8/2019 6:02:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Looks like we each lose two CU's. Over to you to roll for your retreat losses. You would like to retreat to that friendly tribe, but you are prohibited from taking the shortest route there through Heraclea because I entered from that space and you can't retreat there.
Rules say "If the original defender retreats, he is prohibitedfrom entering the space from which the attacker entered the battle from during
the full length of his retreat."
62 9/8/2019 5:57:00 PM 217 BC Rome Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Rome:

61 9/8/2019 5:57:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message OK. Battle lasted six rounds. We need to roll a die on the 5-6 col of the attrition table to see how many CU's we both lose.
60 9/8/2019 5:48:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message I Hannibal ends up eliminated I will seriously consider looking for that towel.
59 9/8/2019 5:47:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Yep. This is gonna be a short game. I had three DE cards AND the cavalry. Grrr....

53 9/8/2019 5:31:00 PM 217 BC Rome Play Battle card #48 Reserve (use as any other card)

Message from Rome:
Used as a DE. Rolling for initiative.
52 9/8/2019 5:30:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Hmm. I guess the regular DE matched DOES automaticaly give the defender the initiative. I rolled for it and got it anyway - but we need to remember that.
51 9/8/2019 5:20:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #6: 1 / Marharbal's Cavalry
(Carthage) Play during any battle. You may use this card as a Double Envelopment BC which (if matched) does not automatically give the defender the initiative.

Message from Carthage:
Playing as DE. You would need to roll for the initiative.

39 9/8/2019 3:48:00 PM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #42: 1 / Elephant Fright
(Rome) Play if attacked by elephants. They have no effect on you and the Carthaginian player immediately loses two BCs.

Message from Rome:
And I will indeed play Elephant Fright. So -2 BC cards to you making it 14 for me and 12 for you.
38 9/8/2019 3:35:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Now's the time to play elephant fright, if you have it. If not, just make the die roll and deal the cards.
37 9/8/2019 3:33:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message I forgot the modifier, so I did not intercept. The battle is at Tarentum. I have 10 CU and 4 for Hannibal. You have 10 CU, +2 for Italy and 2 for Flaminius. If you agree, we're even up prior to the elephant charge.
36 9/8/2019 3:32:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Intercept is successful. So I gain one strategy card. I will keep track of everything here. I have 10 for CU's, +1 for the interception and five for Hannibal. By my read, you have 10 for CU, 2 for Italy, and 2 for Flaminius. Is that correct 16 v 14?
35 9/8/2019 3:28:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Carthage:
I cannot "Avoid Battle" because I do not have an eligible space to move to. I can, however, attempt to intercept at Heracles. I have a +1 to the die roll because of the PC marker.
