332 1/7/2020 1:53:00 AM 213-212 BC Rome Message Larry, thanks for the game.

With Rome, I usually play trying to attack Hannibal as many times as you can.

With Hannibal, I runaway from battles and try to win with PC. I am not sure if this is the best strategy.
331 1/5/2020 10:40:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Hannibal has no response to the Last Probe :(

and with that, I will concede the Game.
Hannibal and his Army all Die, no retreat route.
So need to roll for loses

It would be a up hill battle for Carthage to come back
with Scipio coming in next turn, and beside I think Tim would like us to wrap it up...

I don't really know how to play Carthage, do you go big early or do you play for control till the end. With this Game I got Hannibal in a bad spot and was lucky that the Army lose did not happen earlier last turn.

So Congratulations, and good luck in your next game.

330 1/5/2020 7:15:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message True, sorry. I mistake the retreat with the attrition table.

Sorry.

Druentia PC removed.

Reserve as Probe response round 2.

Also the second roll is the "Retreat table" so with 10 CU in the combat a roll of 4 is 3 more CU to retreat are lost, that's why I mentioned 4 CU lost...

from previous battle, we each lost 1 to attrition

lose one elephant on retreat,
and place 1 Regular CU on reinforcements.
