Roll for 1st consul: left to right
77 12/17/2019 5:56:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message I have not had a chance to play Carthage much (in this year's ladder and tournament games). So I'll take Carthage, if that's OK. No need to add Tim as moderator.
76 12/17/2019 3:59:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Because I did not practice Amateurs to Arms and Thirty Years War for a very long time, I'd prefer a new game of Hannibal... Like you have observed, I need to improve my abilities in this game
No preference for the side
75 12/17/2019 3:25:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message OK. It is a little risky to invade there. And unlucky die rolls do not help. I'll notify Tim of the result.

Since we will not have another ladder game for several months, we could start another Hannibal game for practice. Or we can play something else. I like Amateurs to Arms and I am trying to learn Thirty Years War. Let me know if you want to start up another game. Thanks, Mike
74 12/17/2019 2:24:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Mike, If you dont mind, I'd like to resign because there is no hope for Carthage now...
73 12/16/2019 2:06:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Carthage to remove 3 PCs for the battle and an additional 5 PCs for the loss of Hannibal.
72 12/16/2019 2:03:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message No attrition losses.
It does not look there is a retreat path available so all Carthaginian CUs are eliminated.
Hannibal is removed from the game.
Gisgo and Mago go to the turn track, returning Turn 3.

Rome 15 (10 CU + 3 genl + 2 allies)
Carthage 11 (7CU + 4 genl + 1 intercept - 1 elephants)
61 12/14/2019 5:31:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message My mistake. I misread the rules!
60 12/14/2019 3:35:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message I have never seen a separate roll for each elephant. I thought is was one roll for all elephants. Since the roll was a 1 (the second roll was unnecessary), Carthage would lose 1 BC, Rome would not lose any BCs.
I'll check Board Game Geek or we can ask Tim about the elephant rolls.
59 12/14/2019 3:08:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message with elephants, I think you have 15-1 cards and I have 12-1 cards. If correct, you can draw cards

23 12/12/2019 12:33:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message It was a "land" move, not a "lame" move. Well, maybe it was kind of lame.
22 12/12/2019 7:30:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message You’re right. There should be 5 cu with Longus, not 3. It was a lame move. He should have dropped 2 in the adjacent space, not 4

2 12/3/2019 9:16:00 AM 218 BC Rome Message Ok, standard rules are good.

The place names on the Valley Games board and the Phalanx board are different. I prefer to use the Valley games (original) board.

We do not need to exchange files, but because of the place name differences, it would be less confusing if we use the same board (and same place names)

By the way, I am near Chicago, USA, GMT -6.
1 12/3/2019 7:00:00 AM 218 BC Carthage Message Hi
