375 1/11/2021 11:38:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Hey Jeff, no worries. I guess Romans never expected barbarians storming Senate, too :-D
374 1/10/2021 12:46:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hi, Peter. I've been a little preoccupied with the holidays, a work project, and then of course the events of the past week here, but I will get my next move out tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.
373 1/3/2021 3:01:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage
(Both) The Roman must randomly discard on Strategy Card. Carthage receives a -1 die roll modifier for Sea Movement. Once Macedonia is at war, this event becomes playable only by Rome and ends the Macedonian alliance.

Message from Carthage:
Hey Jeff, no worries!
Thank you, hope you had great Christmas vacations, too!

I'll use this one to add 1CU to Hannibal, so he's now at 11CU + 1 elephant
372 1/3/2021 12:10:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message My apologies for the long wait on me in turn! I will remove the PC in Gergovia.

And I hope you had as merry a Christmas as possible and that the New Year is off to a propitious start for you!

Also, I recently ran across this short video on YouTube about the Polish destroyer Blyskawicka, the one you said was preserved at Gdansk. This guy also has another video entitled "Small Navies" that covers the Polish navy in its first section before moving on to the Netherlands, Greek, etc.

371 12/21/2020 5:08:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Sorry for the long wait. I believe you have to remove 1PC due to lost battle
370 12/13/2020 12:36:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Well, after that highly dramatic 8 rounds of combat, the resulting casualties are surprisingly light.

Carthage = -1 CU
Rome = -3 CUs

Scipio will retreat back to Falerii with 7 CUs, rejoining the 8 CUs already waiting in camp there. Thus, Scipio now has 15 CUs at Falerii.

Hannibal has 10 CUs and 1 CU-E at Firmum Picenum.

Carthage: 18 cards
Rome: 16 cards
335 11/28/2020 1:28:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #20: 1 / Spy in Enemy Camp
(Both) Play at the start of any combat. You may examine up to half of your opponent's Battle Cards. Cards must be drawn randomly.

Message from Rome:
Following in the order of Rule 14.5, I will now declare that I'm playing this as a combat card.

I will go ahead and draw the cards.
334 11/26/2020 1:41:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Not really, or, at least, I haven't heard about it. There is Fat Thursday (Tlusty Czwartek), I guess that's the closest thing - usually, lots of donuts are due to consume that day :) Anyway, thanks and hope you did your due diligence to thank God for what you already have before shopping for more tomorrow :-D

Regarding the rules question - I tried to search on BGG and found no definitive answer. My rationale would be that your troops would still be surprised by Gisgo arriving (maybe flanking them?).

Anyway, it looks like majority of people in that thread would rule it in your favor, i.e. no extra card - so let's play it that way. So, go away, deal and let the fight begin!
333 11/26/2020 12:30:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Second Thing (back to the game):

Actually, I don't think the Interception bonus is applicable here, where you already had a force in the space and I moved into it expecting to initiate combat.

The rulebook I have (Valley Games edition) states in Rule 12.4 that:

"In a battle caused by a successful Interception, the Intercepting player receives one extra Battle Card to simulate the effects of surprise."

Here, the battle would not have been caused by the Interception, and there would not have been surprise that a combat was occurring when and where it was.

Still, a good move for you. I'd forgotten about Gisgo's Special Ability.

If you agree, I will proceed with the next steps in the combat.


332 11/26/2020 12:26:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message First thing: today is our American harvest holiday of Thanksgiving. I suspect Poland has some equivalent as well, which I would love to hear about. (I remember from my youthful travels that Hungary had something similar called "The Feast of New Bread.")

Anyway: Happy Thanksgiving from the United States!

331 11/26/2020 1:31:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Successful intercept attempt
330 11/26/2020 1:01:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Hmm. I get the 12 + 4 + 2, but where does the final +1 for Carthage come from?

329 11/25/2020 2:33:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Success
Rome: 10 + 4 + 2 = 16 cards
Carthage: 12 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 19 cards

Let me know if you back off or fight, and if you fight, please deal the hands and do the first attack!

326 11/23/2020 11:12:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #31: 1 / Spanish Allies Desert
(Both) Your opponent does not receive any Battle Card bonuses for Spanish Allies for that Combat.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this to activate Scipio Africanus, who will move as follows:

MP 1: He moves alone to Tarquini, where he assumes command of 8 of the 13 CUs there, leaving 5 CUs with Nero and Varro.

MP 2: He returns to Falerii, and drops off the 8 CUs there - so there are now 18 Roman CUs there.

MP 3: He moves with his original 10 CUs to Firmum Picenum.

I don't expect you to do it, but I pause at this point to allow you to state if you will attempt to Avoid Battle.
325 11/19/2020 4:22:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Hey Jeff, no worries, thx for keeping me posted - I totally get that you might be quite busy rn :) Best of luck with sorting everything out.
324 11/18/2020 11:22:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message Peter, I'm afraid I've been preoccupied with election work and its aftermath, the coronavirus explosion here, and a major hearing at work last Monday. I'll try to get my next move out in the next day or two.

323 10/27/2020 3:47:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #15: 1 / Iberian Recruits
(Both) Place two Carthaginian CU's with any General located in a friendly controlled province of Hispania.

Message from Carthage:
No worries, I also haven't been the fastest player ever :-D And I understand it's THAT time of the year for you ;)

Gisgo stays with 1CU in Sena. 2CU to Mago in NC, total 5.
322 10/24/2020 11:22:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message My apologies for the delay again. Another very busy week at work, and our Presidential campaign remains very distracting.

So, as I have it now, I agree that post your interception move, you have Hannibal, 10 CUs, & 1 CU-e in Firmum Picenum (FiPi). You have 1 CU in Sena.

I think the only remaining unanswered question is whether H. Gisgo accompanied Hannibal or remained behind in Sena. But that won't affect what I do.

Since you'd now have a 2-card advantage over me, Scipio Africanus and his 10 CUs will pull back to Falerii.

321 10/15/2020 2:24:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Hmm, you're right, Gisgo was already at Sena, so no avoid for him. But it looks like there was a loose CU at FiPi, hence when I intercept with Hannibal woth 9+1E, it yields 10+1E in total, so same amount of BCs.

Let me know what you think.
320 10/15/2020 2:18:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Sorry for the late response. Gisgo was at FiPi with 1CU, Hannibal at Sena with 10+1E, as per my records.

When you moved to FiPi, I attempted to avoid battle by Gisgo with 1CU and intercept by Hannibal with 9+1E. Gisgo failed, Hannibal succeeded, therefore there is now 10+1E (total 11CU), Hannibal and Gisgo at FiPi, hence 18 BCs.

You can now either fight or back up to Falerii.

Let me know if I got something wrong
319 10/12/2020 11:24:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Message I'm afraid you're confusing me a little!

1. How does Gisgo avoid battle to Sena when he's already in Sena?

2. And since you moved with 10 CUs to Firmum Picenum, don't you have 10 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 17 BCs?

As far as work, I prosecute crimes that are federal criminal offenses.

318 10/10/2020 5:12:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Avoid unsuccessful, intercept successful
Rome: 10 + 4 + 2 = 16 BC
Carthage: 11 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 18 BC
Not using elephants

Do you fight or do you back off a space?

315 10/8/2020 11:20:00 PM 211-210 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #11: 1 / Balearic Slingers
(Both) If you control the Balearic Islands, place one CU in any Port containing a friendly PC and no enemy CUs.

Message from Rome:
Wow -- where did the time go? I work as a prosecutor for the federal government, and I had a long hearing this past Monday. Plus, our presidential campaign has become a major distraction: it seems like something else amazing happens every day.

So I'll play this to activate Scipio Africanus, who will move as follows from Rome:

MP 1: with 5 CUs to Tarquini (leaving 14 CUs behind in Rome with Flaminius)

MP 2: pick up another 5 CUs in Tarquini, so now 10 CUs with Scipio, and then move to Falerii (leaving Nero and Varro with 13 CUs in Tarquini)

MP 3: to Firmum Picenum: will you intercept?
314 9/26/2020 4:02:00 AM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Yes, looks familiar! :)

Sorry to hear that, I've been to Belfast and to Victory. And even to Cutty Sark before the first fire :)

Woah, what do you do? I thought government jobs at least should pay overtime :-/

I'll have you start the turn then :)
313 9/26/2020 12:29:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message And boy, do I envy you your overtime pay! My government job requires lots of OT, but it's just treated as an expectation of the position. By government standards, however, we are well compensated.
312 9/26/2020 12:26:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message You'll see some familiar images in this album that I posted on Flickr:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/27685985@N03/albums/72157631882117994

I actually spent a night on the BB New Jersey once, with my son's Scout troop. I regret to say, however, that during two years in England, I never made it to HMS Victory, HMS Warrior, or HMS Belfast. And despite several trips to Athens, I have yet to see the Averoff.

I have seen the CSS Hunley in its museum outside of Charleston, however. I should actually add that one to my album, and perhaps some "New Jersey" pics.

311 9/26/2020 12:18:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message As for my Generals and Legions:

Tarquini: Nero, Varro, & 18 CUs
Rome: Flaminius, Scipio Africanus, & 19 CUs


310 9/24/2020 2:34:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Haha, what if I tell you that, unlike the Land of Freedom, CD Projekt Red pays overtimes at 150%/200% on weekdays/weekends? :-D

Yeah, I believe Blyskawica had a pretty heroic history. Funnily, she got "twinned" with Haida - and when I finally visit Blyskawica (both times I tried it was closed) - I'd be I guess among very few people who are not historians/museum workers who visited BOTH (as I lived in GTA shortly).

Unfortunately, I haven't been to Baltimore yet, but I've visited quite a few museum ships in the US: BB Iowa, CV Hornet, BB Massachusets and Fletcher-class DD next to it (Cassin Young?), USS Pampatino, and USS Constitution (I built and painted a Revell model of it loooong time ago). It's crazy that she is still commissioned!

Back to the game - could you remind me please where your generals are and CU stacks?
309 9/24/2020 10:34:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Here's a link to a picture of the Katyn Monument:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Katy%C5%84_Memorial


308 9/24/2020 12:40:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message Also, I love seeing surviving naval vessel from WWII, or even earlier. (In my home town of Baltimore, we have a frigate from the 1850's that's moored on our waterfront. It fought in our Civil War.)

Was the Blyskawica one of the Polish warships that managed to make their escape to England at the start of the war? I also seem to recall it playing a role as an escort on the Russian convoys.

On my honeymoon, we saw the Polish military cemetery at Monte Cassino. Very moving. And, actually, here in Baltimore, we have a prominent monument to the Polish officers who were murdered in Katyn Forest.


307 9/24/2020 12:34:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message And thanks for the tips! I love castles, so Malbork was already on my list, but I'm not familiar with the other two, and would definitely be interested -- particularly if we were to decide to rent a car. My only concern about that is that if you let my wife drive 85, she might be doing 95!

You're with a pretty impressive outfit there! But are you sure you should get paid for having that much fun?

306 9/24/2020 12:25:00 AM 211-210 BC Rome Message I'm not looking to play a campaign card right now.

(Both) Play immediately after opponent has moved but before combat. Contrary to his expectations, his General has only move two spaces - return him to the second space he entered.

Message from Carthage:
PC in Zama.

That's nice, maybe we get to play Hannibal IRL when you're in Warsaw? I enjoy traveling by car - most of the roads are very nice, and you can go up to 140kmh (~85mph) on the highways - quite faster than your Californian 65mph speed limit, eh? ;)

I really love Gdansk, in vicinity there are two places of interest: Malbork (basically, a capital of the Teutonic Order) and Blyskawica destroyer in Gdynia neaby. If you are into Witcher books/games/show, I really recommend Witcher musical in Gdynia, it has EN subtitles. But you need to buy tickets well in advance, at least 6 months or so.

Near Krakow, you can go to Wieliczka salt mine - "the closest place on Earth to Moria" (c) reddit. In Wroclaw, the zoo is worth checking out. Another checkpoint would be Zamek Czocha - you can book there a room to stay - but again, you need to do it WELL in advance.

If you are into castles, on your way from Warsaw to Krakow I can recommend Ogrodzienec - the Netflix Witcher show had one episode shot there - and Bobolice, which is very nicely reconstructed.

Regarding a reason why I am now in Warsaw - you can search me on LinkedIn and then it would be self-explanatory ;)
292 9/17/2020 11:00:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #25: 2 / Capua Sides with Carthage
(Carthage) If the Carthage controls 3 or more Italian provinces Capua is converted to Carthaginian control and all Roman CUs inside are eliminated.

Message from Rome:
Sorry for the delay. Work and some other distractions again, I'm afraid.

I'll play this to activate T. Longus, who will return with his 5 CUs from his expedition to Pisae through Cosa, Tarquini, and then to Rome, where he will be accorded the honor of a triumph. (OK, I know, the Battle of Pisae was a pretty one-sided affair, but it's important to keep up morale on the home front, and besides, it's a good excuse to run a few circus races. Those charioteers need to do something to justify their exemptions from the draft.)

Interesting to hear that you're in Warsaw. My wife is interested in visiting Poland when it becomes possible to travel again, and I also had a good friend who traveled to Poland some years back and loved her experience there.

I've been starting to rough out a possible itinerary in my mind. In my current fantasies, we'd fly to Berlin, then to Gdansk, Warsaw, Krakow, and Wroclaw before visiting Dresden and returning to Berlin. I'm assuming that trains would be the best way to move around within the country, but I've heard you have a good bus system as well.

If there are particular things you recommend, or other cities or places that are worth a stop, I'd love to hear about them.
291 9/7/2020 2:18:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Yeah, it's great and I got quite a liberal time-off from the doctor, but, unlike his Canadian colleagues, no opioid prescription :(

I currently live in Warsaw, PL, spent 6 years before in Canada, mostly in Montreal, QC and a bit in Oakville, ON. Where are you from?

Congrats! We're planning to start slowly looking out for a car in order to justify the garage place that came along with our apartment :-D
290 9/5/2020 7:16:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Well, I hope the new place is all good, and that the surgery went OK and wasn't too serious!

Remind me again where you're living now?

P.S. And I just bought a new car! Hey, my previous one was 15 years old, and the economy needs stimulation.

289 9/5/2020 1:18:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Haha, no worries. In the meantime, I moved to a new place (we bought an apartment) and underwent a surgery :)
288 9/4/2020 7:10:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Peter, I should be able to get back to the game tomorrow. I've had to get deeply involved in a project that I'd thought a younger colleague would be able to handle.
287 8/24/2020 5:02:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #24: 3 / Sophonsiba Seduces a Numidian Kin
(Carthage) Pick either Western or Eastern Numidia and place up to three Carthaginian PCs in that province in spaces which do not contain enemy CUs. If the space contains a Roman PC, the PC is simply flipped.

286 8/22/2020 11:32:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #56: 2 / Grain Shortage
(Carthage) Remove any three Roman non-walled PCs. You may only play this card if you control Sicilia.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this for PCs:

- Convert Pisae to Roman control.
- Place a Roman PC in Ilerda.
285 8/21/2020 2:47:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message No worries, Jeff, thanks for letting me know!
284 8/21/2020 12:39:00 AM 213-212 BC Rome Message Sorry, Peter -- I've been preoccupied with an office move and some other tasks and didn't realize you were back! I'll make a move tomorrow.
283 8/3/2020 4:03:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #58: 1 / Cato Counsels Rome
(Carthage) Roman CUs are prohibited from moving to Africa until the Strategy Deck is reshuffled. This does not affect Roman CUs already there.

282 8/3/2020 4:02:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Nice! No, we were in the Eastern part of Crete - but it was a lot of fun, too! Visited Knossos (aka Minotaur's labyrinth), Heraklion arch museum and several ancient sttlements just randomly along the route - my wife found a few pieces of clay vases there!
281 7/28/2020 10:46:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Still, a very near-run thing. Gisgo almost escaped. Good thing I didn't play a Probe card!

Enjoy your time in Crete. My wife and I vacationed there in 1994 and 1996. We loved Chania. Will you take the hike through the Samaria Gorge?


280 7/28/2020 8:34:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Gisgo eliminated, no losses for Rome. I'll take a pause until eow, since I'm on Crete away from my PC :)
