482 4/8/2021 8:10:00 AM 209-207 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #16: 2 / Gallic Recruits
(Carthage) Place two Carthaginian CU's with any General located in Gallia Transalpinia or Cisalpinia

Message from Carthage:
Sorry for the looooong wait
2 to Hannibal, now at 9
481 4/3/2021 1:17:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message Thank you, Peter -- I appreciate your sportsmanship.

But my thinking is that if I leave those spaces open for any length of time, there's nothing to stop you from dropping PCs in them. They would then again be isolated and removed at the end of the coming turn unless you are able to get troops to an adjacent space, but who knows? The turn is long, and you might be able to do that.

480 4/2/2021 4:16:00 AM 209-207 BC Carthage Message I believe FiPi and Sena were isolated and removed last turn, that being said, do you want to reconsider your last move?
479 4/2/2021 1:02:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message Oops. I need to correct some numbers and the route of march on that last move.

3. In Rome, I will activate Flaminius, who will move with 5 of the 10 CUs currently there to Falerii, where he will pick up the 4 CUs there, so his force now grows to 9 CUs. He will then continue to to Firmum Pioenum, where he will drop 1 CU; then to Sena with his remaining 8 CUs, and drop 1 CU there to assist in restoring order and rebuilding infrastructure damaged during the Carthaginian occupation; and finally continue to Praeneste where he goes into camp with 7 CUs.


478 4/2/2021 12:53:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #34: 3 / Major Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY THREE GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
It feels like it's been a remarkably long time since I was able to play this card and move three generals, which I will do as follows:

1. Activate Scipio, who will move with 10 CUs from Ariminium through Mutina and Boii to Taurini where they go into camp, gazing up at the snow-covered peaks of the Alps.

2. Activate Nero, who will move with 5 CUs from Tarquinii to Rome, where he drops 1 CU (now 10 CUs there in addition to his remaining force of 4 CUs) He will then sail with 4 CUs to Sassari on the north end of Sardinia and drop 1 CU there; then move to Oristano, and drop 1 CU there; and finally move to Carales with his remaining 2 CUs.

3. In Rome, I will activate Flaminius, who will move with 7 of the 12 CUs currently there to Praeneste; then to Sena, where he will drop 1 CU; then to Firmum Pioenum, where he will drop 1 CU; then to Falerii with his remaining 5 CUs.
477 4/2/2021 12:38:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message 1. Yes, Nero is currently in Tarquinii. They say the Etruscan tombs there are lovely this time of year!

2. Yes, I will pre-empt by playing a Campaign card.

476 3/30/2021 9:47:00 AM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Where is Nero currently, at Tarquinii?
Do you preempt?

- Post 400: You removed your PC in Vescera.

- Post 453: I removed the remaining 4 PCs.

- Post 454: You replaced the PCs in Icosium, Saldae, and Tupusuctu.

Vescera and Zuccabar remain uncontrolled.


468 3/28/2021 1:03:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message 3(a) Eastern Numidia:

- Post 154: I removed your PCs from Sitilis, Cirta, and Thamugadi.

- Post 261: You replaced your PC in Thamugadi.

Thus, Cirta and Sitilis remain uncontrolled .

467 3/28/2021 12:57:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message 2. You are correct: Mago left 1 CU in Lilybaeum and has 9 CUs in Agrigento.

466 3/28/2021 12:54:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message 1. It is correct that Ilerda is neutral atpresent. Past history:

-Post 57: I flipped it to Roman control when Flaminius campaigned in Spain.
- Post 233: I had to remove the Roman PC.
- Post 286: I placed it again.
- Post 299: I had to remove it again.

464 3/27/2021 3:21:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Understood, it's your alternative for gamedev's crunch, I suppose :)
Could you please clarify few things:
-Is Ilerda really neutral?
-Is Mago with 10CUs in Agrigentum or does he have 9 and 1CU in Lily?
-Where are the PCs in Numidia (E and W)

In any case, my reinforcements are:
1 to Hannibal, total 7
2 to Hasdrubal, total 12
1 to Hanno, total 4
Gisgo reappears in Tarraco, with Hasdrubal and 12 CUs
463 3/25/2021 10:52:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome Message Glad to. It will be on its way.

P.S. I am starting a trial on 4/20 that will probably run until mid-May, which has already started to impact how often I can check in. I will do my best, and thanks again for your patience. (My wife calls these periods "trial mode.")


462 3/22/2021 4:20:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage Message Hey Jeff, my PC stopped booting - could you send me please a map screenshot, so I would reset the game for me?
461 3/19/2021 12:29:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message You may proceed to place your reinforcements.
460 3/19/2021 12:28:00 AM 209-207 BC Rome Message I'll remove my PC in Narbo.

Sorry for the long wait, busy with work and stuff.

(Carthage) If you use this card as an OC for Sea Movement and carry no more than 3 CUs plus a General, you do not have to roll on the Naval Combat Table if you embark or debark at either Brundisium, Croton or Tarentum

I'll use this to activate Scipio, who will move with 2 CUs from Ariminium as follows:

The Third Battle of Arimnium,
Round # 3.
443 3/2/2021 11:58:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message OK. I'm trying to get my head around the idea of 1 CU rear guard, under attack by an enemy who outnumbers it 10-1, being able to call upon two separate forces of reserves.

I think this is the military equivalent of the miracle of the loaves and fishes.

(Both) Move a General whose Strategy Rating is 1 or 2 up to six spaces.

Message from Rome:
I'll activate Scipio, who will move as follows:

MP 1: He rides with his staff to the camp at Rome for a conference with Flaminius. They agree that he will take 7 CUs from the Rome garrison of 14 CUs, leaving 7 CUs behind, and will again attempt to defeat Hannibal.

MP 2: Scipio returns with 7 CUs to his camp at Falerii (now 14 CUs there).

MP 3: Leaving 4 CUs behind i the camp at Falerii, Scipio marches with 10 CUs against Hannibal and his 8 CUs at Ariminium.

Will Hannibal fight, or attempt to evade battle?

432 2/25/2021 3:34:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message No worries :)
Mago overruns 1CU at Lily, drops 1CU there, proceeds with 9 to Agrigentum and overruns another CU there.

Over to you now :)
431 2/24/2021 12:33:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Also, my apologies for the prolonged radio silence. I'm in another heavy period at work.

-2 -1 -1 -1 +1 = -4 to roll
Reaction?
426 2/14/2021 11:44:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message And you still have the second move of your Campaign.

425 2/14/2021 11:43:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Attrition: No loss by either side
Retreat: Romans lose 1 CU of 2 CUs

The surviving Roman CU escapes to rejoin Scipio at Falerii, bringing his strength to 7 CUs.

Clearly, the Roman force at Ariminium fought a masterful delaying action and withdrawal under pressure.

Message from Carthage:
Sorry for a long break.
1. Hannibal, Gisgo and all the CU stack (8) attack 2 Roman CUs at Ariminum. Reaction?
414 2/3/2021 2:44:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message I was so demoralized that I forgot all about that. But I think the consequences of this dramatic defeat are likely to be felt most significantly in outlying areas that have less allegiance to Rome in the first place. So, I will remove PCs in:

- Rhone
- Druentia
- Nemausus

413 2/3/2021 12:47:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message I think people of Italia don't trust Rome as much as they did, so they want to remove 3 PCs before Carthage takes their next step.
412 2/3/2021 12:45:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message A total disaster. Scipio -- who does not seem to be living up to his notices -- loses 5 CUs, for a total of 6. He retreats with 4 back to the camp at Falerii to join the 2 CUs there. Now 6 CUs in Falerii.

(Carthage) Place two Carthaginian CU's in any friendly controlled port in Africa or Italy. May only be played while Philip V of Macedonia is allied with Carthage.

Message from Rome:
I'll use this to activate Scipio Africanus, who will move (initially with 7 CUs, while leaving 2 CUs in Ariminium) as follows:

MP 1: Falerii, where there are currently 5 CUs; pick up 3 CUs, so now 10 CUs in Scipio's army.

MP 2: Scipio moves with 10 CUs to Firmum Picenum. leaving 2 CUs in Falerii to guard the camp there. Will Hannibal fight, or attempt to avoid battle?

401 1/27/2021 1:01:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message What a result! That is certainly the first time I have ever been able to win a battle using Probe cards -- but then again, I've never had 5 Probe cards in my hand before. Clearly, we each had very lopsided hands.

Let me sleep on it tonight and I will make my next move tomorrow.

400 1/26/2021 1:15:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Scipio loses 1, Hannibal loses 3, including elephant. Remove Vescera. Back to FiPi, now at 9CU.
