115 4/4/2020 4:13:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Event #4: 1 / Gellis Egnatius

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Playing Egnatius in Bovianum. End of turn. Before the next player plays, I wish to play a Desperate Times. Anyone want to preempt my preemption?
114 4/4/2020 4:37:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message Yes, I did.

We can just keep our boards privately, like Jeff. No problem.
113 4/3/2020 10:51:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message I sent a file, did you guys get it?
112 4/2/2020 4:45:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message You are using the right address.
111 4/2/2020 4:44:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Ted, I got neither email from you. It's also not in my junk or trash folders.

108 4/2/2020 1:23:00 PM 386-374 BC Roman Message Jeff: My move was to place a roman control marker on Fregellae
107 4/2/2020 11:34:00 AM 386-374 BC Gaul Message No Gallic CUs at Sena Gallica--Rick removed one in entry 32.
106 4/2/2020 9:42:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message Etruscans are up

SO Gaul's move has gained Gaul 2 plunder, Sentinum and Spoletium are indpependant (brown markers).

Minor A+3 at Spoletium and 1cu at Sena Gallica ?
105 4/2/2020 9:05:00 AM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Success. Spoletium now independent. Plunder at 2.

That is all.

When I get the log file, I'll update it to include my move.

So keeping the dice:

1 MP to Sentinum.
2 MP to raid--fails, no loss.
3 MP to raid--success, no loss. So Minor leader A at Sentium, which is independent. Plunder at 1.

Activate Minor Leader A at Sena Galica. Move 1MP to Sentinum with 3 CU. 2nd MP to raid.
97 4/2/2020 8:55:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message Yes, it should be in your email
96 4/2/2020 8:50:00 AM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Are you sending the log file?
95 4/2/2020 7:55:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message Never mind - I figured out that it is by right-clicking.

On to the next player.
94 4/2/2020 7:54:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Play Strategy card - Event #25: 2 / Fregellae Settled

Message from Roman:
I want to play this for the event, but I can't find PC markers in the Vassal file. In the Markers box, there is an entry for Control, but it looks to be empty. (I have successfully found other markers in the box, such as siege). Help?
93 4/1/2020 7:01:00 PM 386-374 BC Greek Message ROME is up..........

Greeks played out of sync as Rick had to redo his turn
92 3/31/2020 4:29:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Sharable log sent to Rick and Ted.
91 3/31/2020 11:13:00 AM 386-374 BC Gaul Message I would rather work by email. Since these are small files, I have never wanted to get on a service and download/upload things we can just pop in an email.

Since my board is up to date, I will prepare a log file at lunch time and send it out, describing a numbering system in the email. Then we'll all three be on the same page.
90 3/31/2020 9:05:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message Ack I thought we were all coordinating via Dropbox. My board is out of date too.

Kevin is there a service that you would rather use, to keep one board between the three of us? Or would you prefer to email the vassal boards to each oter?
89 3/30/2020 9:53:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Outcome of battle is correct: 4 losses to Gaul, retreat to Luna with 2. 2 losses to Etruscans, in Pisae with 7.

We didn't get that damned tower knocked over, it's still leaning there.
88 3/30/2020 9:06:00 PM 386-374 BC Greek Message Gauls lost 4CU

Etruscans 6,4,1 = 3 Losses

Gauls rolled 6,5,1 inflciting 2 to Etruscans,but suffered an additional loss for rolling the 1 which inflicts 1 loss to the losser>

Etruscans did gain 2 loyalty which is right.

Greeks last play stands, slightly out of turn, but it works.

Confirm on the Pisae battle adjustment ?

Rome is up
87 3/30/2020 9:02:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Etruscan 13 (5,4,1) +3
Gaul 12 (1,5,6)

It appears Etruscans lose 2 and Gaul loses 3. Gaul retreats to Luna, siege lifted. I gain 2 political, make Tarquinii a 3.

Let me know what I messed up (or of course if anyone has cards to play to change that).

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Etruscan Roll +3
84 3/30/2020 8:53:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message Force ratio is 9-6, or +1 for the Etruscans
Leader advantage is +1 for the Etruscans.
Friendly space is another +1 for the Etruscans, so +3 total for Etruscans.
83 3/30/2020 8:02:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message I think we're all keeping our own. I'll send you mine, but it's a saved game file with me as the Gauls, so you might have to log in.

I do not use Dropbox. I'll email, or there are other services I'll use, but not that one.
82 3/30/2020 7:41:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message We'll fight.
81 3/30/2020 7:40:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message To know how to use it, I thought the intent was to for people to save their last move into Dropbox using ###_SoR with the ### being the journal number of the last play. I guess I am wrong on that, so my bad. Can someone send me a valid board so I can just keep my own.
80 3/30/2020 7:37:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message It sounds like you may not be saving properly.
79 3/30/2020 7:36:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message If you want to set up a phone call, we can have Vassal open together and I can walk you through using it.


78 3/30/2020 7:36:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Rick, I don't know what you mean by "SOR Box" or #57.

Tarentum starts with 5 CU.
On move 16, Jeff added 3, so 8.
On move 27, I subtracted 2, so 6
On move 32, you subtracted 1, so 5.

On move 68, you subtracted another, but we are canceling that, so Tarentum has 5.
77 3/30/2020 6:32:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Operations #35: 3 / Linen Legion

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Minor leader A and 7cu's go to Fasuelae and pick up B and 2 CUs and attack Pisae. It seems 9-6. Any Gaul response
76 3/30/2020 6:26:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message In the SoR box, when I look at #57, there are 7 Greeks in Tarentum. I gather I am doing it wrong by using those files as canon? The number of Gauls in Luna (would be Pisae) appears wrong as well.
75 3/30/2020 6:22:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Return Strategy card to hand #5: 1 / Lucanian Raiders

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Illegal move, undoing
74 3/30/2020 4:28:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message BACK UP.

Rick's play was invalid. The card says the CU must be moved from a non-walled space.

Tarentum has walls.
73 3/30/2020 4:25:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Rick, when you click on the marker button (siege counter), the window is closed all the way to the right. You have to move the window frame left to see the markers.

72 3/30/2020 4:22:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Confirm, Greeks at 4 after losing 1 from Tarentum.

71 3/30/2020 4:20:00 PM 386-374 BC Greek Message Rick, did you look in the "markers" section where the powers counters are kept in the upper left hand corner of the box ? You can big up or shrink the box as needed. Many of the counters will "flip" if you click on it.

Rome is up

Event marker placed on Greek event track

See my question below. At end of turn we should post each powers board placement.
69 3/30/2020 4:15:00 PM 386-374 BC Greek Message I have the Greeks with 4CU in Tarentum after that ?

Confirm anyone ?
68 3/30/2020 2:03:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Play Strategy card - Event #5: 1 / Lucanian Raiders

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
It seems all my cards fight the Greeks. I remove 1 CU from Tarentum. It leaves the Greeks with 6.
67 3/30/2020 2:01:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I could not get a siege zero to appear, when I click on siege for whatever reason nothing appears. I retreated to Faesulae.
66 3/30/2020 1:35:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message That was the Gaul's 3rd action, by the way.
65 3/30/2020 1:33:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Etruscans must retreat to Faesulae or Populonium, Rick's choice.

Gauls get no political support/plunder. Which is just galling!

After all the Etruscan stalling!

Siege 0 at Pisae, where Gauls sit with 6 CU.

Over the Etruscans.


64 3/30/2020 1:27:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Gauls win, 13 to 11.

But Etruscans lose 0 CU, while Gauls lose 1 CU.

Leader advantage is +1 for the Etruscans.
Friendly space is another +1 for the Etruscans, so +2.
60 3/30/2020 1:06:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message We will stay and fight. No cards for me.

Activate Minor Leader B+7. Move to Pisae. Etrucscans hide in the city, try to run away, or fight?
57 3/28/2020 6:19:00 PM 386-374 BC Roman Message Well, ok then. Camilla is renamed "Siegus Suckus" and loses another CU.

51 3/28/2020 11:17:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message Gaul response ?
50 3/28/2020 11:16:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message That should work as no battle has been fought
49 3/28/2020 10:54:00 AM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message I like Ted's suggestion. Gamewise, I wanted to know if someone played a card (particularly Kevin). But it does slow the heck out of the game.

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
I am curious if this works? Evasion is part of the battle sequence. Did my evasion roll nullify this? I could not find it on BGG. If it is allowed, this is my play.
47 3/28/2020 10:48:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message no

i played a Here I stand game where they said, just go ahead with your turn and submit as if there were no response cards. Then if someone wants to, they can jump in afterwards and play the response card. Then the original player has to re-do it. speeds things up at the cost of some information weirdness.

Normally, Rick could retreat into the city, but I am not going to let him, via my next card play.

Rick, do you want to avoid battle into another space? If so, roll it.

Choosing Rome as the target

Add 1 support to Neopolis <2>

Remove 1 support from Sutrium and Narnia. Both are now independent/neutral cities of Loyalty 1.

The markers are found in the "Marker Box" where our troops and loyalty come from on the vassal board.

Message from Etruscan-Samnite:
Hey Kevin, I resemble that remark

OK, removing 1 Gaul from Sena Gallica and 1 Greek from Tarentum. Placing 2 additional Etruscan CUs with minor leader A in Clusium.
31 3/26/2020 1:11:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message Well, Rick's turn is next. He's probably lying on the couch with a remote in one hand and a drink in the other, so I'm not sure "up" is the right word.
30 3/26/2020 11:49:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message Rick is up correct ?
29 3/25/2020 8:25:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message The ACTS journal is the official game record, card dealer, and dice roller. On your turn, you should play one of the available cards. In the text box, explain what your move is. If you need to roll a die/dice, stop your explanation and use the die roller in ACTS. If there's a chance for an opponent to react, stop and ask if anyone wants to. When you're done, say so and pass the turn.
28 3/25/2020 8:11:00 PM 386-374 BC Etruscan-Samnite Message So can someone give me the Reader's Digest on how we are using ACTS? I haven't used it in quite some time.

Greeks lose 2 CU. Card tells me to remove them, so -2CU from Tarentum, now 6 CUs.

Place 2 Gallic CUs in Luna, now 7 CUs.

Etruscans up.

That is all.
26 3/25/2020 11:54:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message Ok isee Kevin's message
25 3/25/2020 11:53:00 AM 386-374 BC Greek Message Ted: Why aren't you rolling the results in the ACTS log of the battle ? There isn't anything showing and I'm not passing along the vassal file as I am keeping my own board.
24 3/25/2020 10:07:00 AM 386-374 BC Roman Message Political result of the battle: Capua becomes a level 2 loyalty city.

For some reason, in Vassal, you cant move walled cities once they touch the map? So you have to place it right when you drag the marker down.

After the battle, Camilia starts a 0-level Siege. And that is all.

Note: I am naming the Vassal save file using the number of the last message in the ACTS message list.
23 3/24/2020 8:20:00 PM 386-374 BC Gaul Message No response from me.

Antium has options, which are up to me as the lowest VP player by tiebreaker.

Minor Leader A and 3CU will hide in the walled city, leaving 1 poor schmuck out in the cold.

Rome wins an auto-victory by virtue of 8-1 odds. The orange 1 CU is eliminated.

Camillus may continue to move.
22 3/24/2020 12:33:00 PM 386-374 BC Greek Message no response cards from me.

The Volsci Minor A+3 can withdraw into the city leaving 1 outside the walls to fight I beleive.
