476 1/19/2020 8:33:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message thanks for the kinds words. These games always have some luck to them, but you played the cards that were dealt very well. I would be interested in playing again sometime.
475 1/19/2020 1:04:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Thank you for the game! It was a really very tight game. You are very-very robust opponent, I never was sure I am doing the right moves. This game was a good experience for me. Good luck and succes! It was a pleasure to play with you. I think I was a little more lucky in this game (messenger, Hanno, attrition). And this influenced the victory.
474 1/19/2020 11:29:00 AM 203-201 BC Carthage Message I'm going to concede here knowing that you still hold a 3-card in your hand. Even if I would sail Hannibal safely to Sicily with my campaign card and somehow survive a fight with Scipio, i still can't make up the differences.

I just could not get any kind of momentum after Hannibal got kicked out of Italy with all those early attrition losses, and you seeming to always have the answer for any type of play I might pull off (including that campaign card on this last turn).

I'll let you tell the TO about your win. Good game and good luck climbing rest of ladder.
