607 4/2/2020 10:23:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Phil,
Will set up in AM. Same scenario as the tournament. Iíll make you CP, as I have demonstrated a complete inability to play them!
606 4/2/2020 10:15:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Im OK now just set it up, with any adjustments, your choice of sides, I'd suggest the historical scenario
605 4/2/2020 10:13:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Let me know when you have some time for POG...
604 4/2/2020 9:38:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Yes its a nasty card but it would be much worse without the optional rule
603 4/2/2020 9:34:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Great game Phil! I have one concern though. I believe every game Iíve played so far was decided by who had Messenger Intercepted on the last turn. That strikes me as a problem...
I think you would have won this if we switched that one card.

A game of POG would be great!
602 4/2/2020 9:29:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message I missed - you would have won away because it would have been a tie

Thanks for the game - it was very exciting

538 3/30/2020 12:01:00 AM 206-204 BC Carthage Message Phil,
I think you already had Panormous, but you need Mutina to get control of Galia Cisalpina.
So if you do that it makes it 9-8 Carthage. Don't forget, I still have Syracuse, and Campania is uncontrolled.
Let me know if you want to make that switch, or if I messed up somewhere. If I'm correct you need to remove one PC.
