Message from Carthage:
Time to play the campaign...the question is how to play the campaign.
502 10/7/2019 5:26:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message There is also this on Skippy:

6.3 Restrictions on Placement
Reinforcements may not be placed inside a besieged Walled City [20.4]. An enemy general without CUs does
not restrict the placement of reinforcements and would be displaced [10.10] if
reinforcements are placed in that space. If Rome is besieged and all Roman generals
are inside Rome, than the Roman player does not receive any reinforcements except
those arriving with Scipio Africanus. The same is true with the area specific
Carthaginian reinforcements: if New Carthage is besieged and all Carthaginian
generals in Spain are inside that city, then the Carthaginian player would lose
those two CUs.
501 10/7/2019 5:05:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message This was what I needed to re-read. 6.7 Scipio Africanus
Scipio Africanus arrives in play on turn 6 (211-210 B.C.) as a second proconsul. He brings with him five CUs that are in
addition to the five CUs the Roman player normally receives. Scipio and his 5 CUs must be placed as a group; they may not
be split up. The Roman player can place Scipio's army in any space in Italy that contains
a friendly PC and no enemy CUs or in any port space in Spain that contains a friendly PC and no enemy CUs.
Scipio's army arrives after the normal five CUs have been placed and before the two
new consuls have been elected. He may not be placed inside a Walled City. If there are no such spaces on the
map Scipio Africanus and his army does not appear and Scipio Africanus is removed from play. Once on the map Scipio acts
as a permanent proconsul for the Roman player allowing him to have two proconsuls in play.
500 10/7/2019 4:56:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message So take your time. US Romans aren't going anywhere.
499 10/7/2019 4:56:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message I've got to get ready to watch the Nats. Have an Oktoberfest bier drinking and Nat watching date with my neighbor at 4 PM my time.
