768 3/3/2020 9:45:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Thanks

I made one critical error in Turn 7 when I sent Hasdrubal back to Spain, landing in the wrong port which may have led to Scipio's death in the ensuing battle.

If you did your Orospeda move or something like it in Turn 8 (instead of besieging) you may have won.
767 3/3/2020 9:34:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Okay, I see now. Good game! Unreal that I was up 11-7 with only two ARs left. Well played!

You are clearly the superior player. I made numerous blunders, but hung in there and at least made you work for it. :)

I appreciate your patience with me in the early stages as I fumbled through the extra rules for Rome.

Good luck in the next round, Roderick. Go get 'em!
766 3/3/2020 9:32:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #20: 1 / Spy in Enemy Camp
(Both) Play at the start of any combat. You may examine up to half of your opponent's Battle Cards. Cards must be drawn randomly.

Message from Carthage:
and an extraneous 1-op that does not affect the final game disposition
765 3/3/2020 9:31:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message I'm unclear. Which two provinces can you flip? Won't you have to fight me somewhere? Let's play this out.

Yes, I agonized over the Bad Weather decision. I didn't want to give you back-to-back plays to end the game, but it prevented you from taking Sicily, which I felt would put the pressure on you to take two provinces with two cards.

Go ahead with your move(s).
764 3/3/2020 9:30:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #56: 2 / Grain Shortage
(Carthage) Remove any three Roman non-walled PCs. You may only play this card if you control Sicilia.

Message from Carthage:
To make it official.
I was looking forward to playing this event.

as ops
flip Idubeda and Samnium
763 3/3/2020 9:27:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message well, obviously I can with a minimum of 2 ops in 2 cards

fitting that the game would end on one final battle for Hannibal

Good game.

Tough call on whether or not to play Bad Weather. You gave me two unanswered plays to end the game, but you prevented Mago from flipping Sicily. I think I would've played it the other way cause I don't like giving away the double move, but I can see it either way
762 3/3/2020 9:15:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #23: 3 / Numidian Ally
(Rome) Place up to three Roman PCs in Eastern Numidia in spaces which do not contain enemy CUs. If the space contains a Carthaginian PC, the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Rome:
No campaign, but I have this:

Flip the 3 spaces I occupy in Orospedea.

Score now 11R-7C.

Can you convert two provinces with your final two card plays?? What a nail-biter!!
761 3/3/2020 9:12:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message correct, campaign is over
so, do you have a campaign to answer back?

720 3/2/2020 10:04:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Okay, it's been 20 minutes since your last play and sitting here and refreshing ACTS repeatedly is not my idea of a good time. :) Plus I told my family I would be done by 8:30. So I'm going to bounce off, but I'm encouraged that we were able to make several moves. Tim said we have until midnight your time on Wed, so that's two more full days. I could something like this again tomorrow. Thanks for working these moves into your evening! We're close now!

684 3/1/2020 2:31:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Play Battle card #42 Double Envelopment (modify retreat by +2, lose initiative)

Message from Carthage:
if you don't match this, you lose in a one round battle

if you do match this, then you lose in the second round on account of running out of cards

The battle loss roll is 1 which is the same result for a 1 or 2 round battle. (If I had rolled a 5, then I would've been obligated to deal cards.)
683 3/1/2020 10:26:00 AM 206-204 BC Rome Message I think I'm tracking with you, but didn't see any BCs dealt. This is obviously a formality, but I dealt the cards just to follow procedure. Your play.
682 3/1/2020 10:25:00 AM 206-204 BC Rome Battle Hands dealt Battle 13

Carthage: 7 cards
Rome: 1 cards
681 3/1/2020 12:50:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Message Mago loses 0 and defender will lose a minimum of 1 unless I somehow get a hand of 7 Probes

no political consequences since just 1 CU loss
Mago and 3 CUs in Croton
680 3/1/2020 12:49:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

1


Message from Carthage:
this'll be a 7-1 battle since your CU gets no allies (cause no general)

so, here's the roll for battle losses
679 3/1/2020 12:48:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Die roll request Request: 6-sided die x 1

Message from Carthage:
I'll assume no Storms or Weather
-1 for ports, -1 for Macedonia, -1 for Mago = -3
678 3/1/2020 12:47:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #40: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Carthage:
you have 4 CUs in Rome

as event
first activation, Hannibal gathers up everyone and ends movement in Ariminium with 6 CUs

second activation, Mago and 3 CUs (leaving 2 in Zama with Hanno)
1. Carthage
2-4. attempt to sail to Croton
677 2/29/2020 3:12:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 3 / Sicilia Revolts
(Both) If your opponent has control of Sicily, remove all his non-walled PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CUs.

Message from Rome:
Ok, I'm unclear where then do you have my forces: Rome or Volsinii? They are in Rome on my map.

If that's true for you, I'm using this card to raise troops in Rome for a total of 4 CUs.

If you have them in Volisinii, I'll use another card to move them into Rome.

Please clarify which of these you have on your end.

I've been out and about today, but I'm home the rest of the day and should be able to do some live play if you are also available. I'd say we could finish this in less than an hour.

Even if we can't hop on today, I'll at least be able to check more often. Thanks, Roderick!
676 2/28/2020 8:12:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage
(Both) The Roman must randomly discard on Strategy Card. Carthage receives a -1 die roll modifier for Sea Movement. Once Macedonia is at war, this event becomes playable only by Rome and ends the Macedonian alliance.

Message from Carthage:
as ops for control
flip Ariminium, Firmum Picenum, and Sena

back to 9-9
despite your setbacks this turn, the game is still very close
675 2/28/2020 8:11:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message ok, your revised file checks, but if we weren't facing a deadline, I would insist you just back up as you've had too many mulligans this turn alone

Regarding walled cities, yes it can affect combat because CUs inside the city will not be in the battle if you don't want them. So, if you have, hypothetically, more than 5 CUs outside Rome, you can choose to fight with all of them or put some inside the city (though there may be consular restrictions as well)
674 2/28/2020 7:28:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Message Yes, using different maps is confusing. I'll own that since I'm the new player who learned on the Phalanx map.

I just sent you my map BEFORE my action round, which has Hannibal adjacent to Gisgo (and, more importantly, to my forces!)

Knowing this, I would definitely not have attacked Gisgo. I would have instead moved into the safety of Rome. So, with your consent, I would like to make that my move (Varro, Longus, and 3CUs in Rome)

I just read 10.7 and, while I understand the difference between placing units inside/outside the city, I'm not sure I grasp all the game effects from this. Does this effect primarily/only sieges or does this impact combat as well?
673 2/28/2020 2:45:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage Message I think the problem is the place names are swapped between different versions. Note, though, I provided the new names, and counted out the spaces. Also, Hannibal moved 3 spaces; it is not possible for him to get to where you have him on the map in 3 moves.

backing up is free, there's no die roll
"An army intercepted is never required to give battle; it may instead back up to its last-occupied space and end its movement."

your map shows Hannibal's move (except Hannibal and Gisgo are now together)
but does not show Mago or Hanno's moves, even though they were technically before Hannibal's move

so, just back up after the interception
Hannibal, Gisgo and 4 in Ariminium
1 CU each in Firmum Picenum and Sena

consular army stays in Falerii/Volsini

Mago and Hanno and 5 CUs in Zama
1 CU each in Cirta and Thubursicu (the empty space in E. Numidia)
672 2/28/2020 1:40:00 PM 206-204 BC Rome Message (if it turns out that Hannibal is in fact adjacent to Gisgo, I will definitely move my force to Rome)
