559 5/20/2020 4:23:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Thank you so much! Your comeback was truly very well executed. Despite my horrible dice rolls and mediocre cards, I believe you really tactically outmaneuvered me in the last turn, I relaxed a bit and was punished for that :)
A fantastic and super-close swingy game, thank you so much!

Do I understand correctly that you won 10-8? Will you write a report please? :)
558 5/20/2020 4:16:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message Your dice rolling was incredibly bad! You deserved the win with better play throughout the game.
557 5/20/2020 4:14:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message I was extremely fortunate -- didn't think I had any chance at all, hence the fruitless attacks against Hannibal. By the way, I was dealt 6 Frontal assaults this battle, plus 2 reserves

- Scippy leaves 1 CU in Azaila and moves to Bilbilis with 8 CU; picks up Nero and 1 CU
- moves back to Azaila and drops Nero off with the CU that was left there; continues on to Ilerda with 9 CU

540 5/20/2020 3:59:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message right -- I was looking at the wrong column
539 5/20/2020 3:56:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message No, 3 for attrition is 1 CU lost, the battle took 8 rounds
538 5/20/2020 3:55:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message 3 for attrition: actually think we each lose 2
1 for retreat on 10 column--lose 2
so I lose 2 and you lose 4? removing PC is not the issue -- key is how many each of us have for the next (and last) battle

533 5/20/2020 3:48:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message believe you lost 4 CU -- correct?
532 5/20/2020 3:45:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message just would like to confirm losses in our battle -- think I lost 1 CU; how many for you?
