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.

Message from Carthage:
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 :)

Carthage: 8 cards
Rome: 4 cards
271 7/26/2020 11:40:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Actually, Gisgo only has a Battle Rating of 1. He has a Strategy Rating of 2.

Thus, Carthage gets 4 cards: 1 +1 +2 = 4.

270 7/26/2020 5:06:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Failed.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this to activate Longus, who will move with 5 CUs from Rome to Tarquini to Cosa and then on to Pisae, unless you intercept.

267 7/25/2020 8:51:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #19: 1 / Senate Dismisses Proconsul
(Both) If there is a Roman Proconsul on the map other than Scipio Africanus, it is removed and replaced with an unused Roman General. The player playing this card determines the replacement.

Message from Carthage:
Flip Pisae
266 7/23/2020 10:37:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #22: 1 / Mutin's Numidians
(Carthage) Place one Carthaginian CU and a PC in any non-walled city space in Sicilia that contains no Roman CUs. If the space contains a Roman PC the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Rome:
I had another major filing that I finished yesterday, so things should be better for the next few weeks.

I'll use this to restore the PC at Tolosa.
265 7/19/2020 5:52:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message With 1CU, obviously
Over to you now
264 7/19/2020 5:51:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message No roll required, since there is -2 modifier. Gisgo remains at Pisae

261 7/17/2020 6:10:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #46: 3 / Allied Auxiliaries (Samnium)
(Rome) Place two Roman CUs with any General in Italy if SAMNIUM is Roman controlled.

Message from Carthage:
Nice, didn't know about Tolosa, but makes sense!

260 7/16/2020 11:21:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #14: 2 / Ligurian Recruits
(Carthage) Place two Carthaginian CU's with any General located in Liguria, Cisalpinia or Etruria.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this for Ops and use it to move Flaminius with his 7 CUs to Rome.
259 7/16/2020 11:16:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Yes, I was confused by the line in the rules saying that "An army can retreat up to four spaces," but I guess that means you can do so if the closest acceptable spot to end the retreat is that far away.

So I will retreat ti Praeneste.

And I will remove the PC at Tolosa, the future Toulouse.

258 7/15/2020 6:13:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Gisgo with 1CU at Boii
Hannibal with 8+1E at Sena
and I don't believe you can retreat to Rome, as it should be a closest friendly space, and Sena doesn't have a direct path to Rome
Also, you need to remove 1PC
Otherwise correct, and over to you
257 7/15/2020 12:13:00 AM 213-212 BC Rome Message So just to check the status of the map, I believe it is as follows:

- Carthage now has 1 CU at Firnum Picenum and Hannibal + 8 CUs and 1 CU-e at Sena.

Rome has Longus and Flaminus and a total of 12 CU's at Rome, while Nero and 13 CU's are at Tarquini.

Let me know if that's right, and then I'll make my next move.

256 7/15/2020 12:06:00 AM 213-212 BC Rome Message So the Battle of Sena ends in a Carthaginian victory, with losses of:

Rome - 3 CUs
Carthage - 1 CU-e

Flaminius will retreat through Praeneste to Rome.

Message from Carthage:
That's correct. Hannibal with all CUs (7+2E) to Firmum Picenum, reaction?
235 7/5/2020 11:48:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Also, am I correct that you have 2 currently leaderless Carthaginian CUs at Ariminium?

234 7/5/2020 11:39:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #28: 2 / Hannibal Charms Italy
(Carthage) If you play this as an OC to move Hannibal, you may remove each Roman non-walled PC in each space in Italy that Hannibal enters which does not contain any Roman CUs.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this to activate Consul Longus, who will move from Pisae with his 10 CUs through Cosa to Tarquini, where he will drop 5 CUs (now 13 CUs under Nero there), and then will continue on to Rome with the remaining 5 CUs.
233 7/5/2020 11:30:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message Although the Battle of Falerii was hard and skillfully fought on both sides, the casualties suffered were far fewer than might have been expected. And Nero manages to execute a reasonably successful withdrawal to the coast, despite the pressure of the Carthaginians' renowned Numidian horse. Here's hoping lots of stragglers turn up in the days to come.

I'll remove the PC at Ilerda, the last reminder of Flaminius's early Spanish campaign. One can hardly blame the local authorities for wavering in their attachment to Rome by this point.



232 7/4/2020 6:51:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message I lose 1 CU, you lose 3, please retreat, remove 1 PC and over to you for your turn
