288 9/17/2019 8:40:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message OK. Thanks for the game. You could probably use a rest at this point. Just shoot me an email when you are ready to play again. Maybe some other game? You maybe can't stand the sight of this one at the moment! :)
287 9/17/2019 8:39:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Signing off. Got an event tomorrow. Check back on Thursday. Going to Chicago on Saturday too, so nothing this weekend.
286 9/17/2019 8:38:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Well, there was not much I could do once you took away nine PC markers. Killing Hannibal was my only option. I was never gonna take all the territory back while he was there.
285 9/17/2019 8:36:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Message That DE cardfest battle was kinda close, but I did have a reserve left, and I figured you could not have had any FA's because I had so many. That was the closest though.
284 9/17/2019 8:34:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message So was I close to winning any of those battles?
283 9/17/2019 8:34:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message I surrender...

Message from Carthage:
18.2 Change of Command Die Roll
If both consuls are in the same Consular Army the Roman player may choose either one to move (command) the army; the
other becomes a subordinate. If this army containing both consuls enters battle as the attacker, the Carthaginian player may
make a Change of Command Die Roll to see if the acting commander changes

PROCEDURE: Roll one die, if the die roll is 1-3, there is no change; if the die roll is 4-6, the commander and subordinate
Consuls exchange positions
