36 4/21/2020 10:19:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message Of course, there is intercept and avoid battle opportunities as in other games when armies are adjacent or attack you.
35 4/21/2020 10:16:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message 4-Forage Segment
Each of your Friendly Army must check the stacking limit of the space to the number of CUs in the army.

If on a Transit Space - the dot - if more than 3 CUs lose 1 CU
If on any other space, if more than 8CUs, lost one space.

The number of CUs is the big number on the left. Not to be confused with the combat strength which is the smaller number in the paranthesis
If on any
34 4/21/2020 10:13:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Horse Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 2 / Olympias Murders Philip III

Message from Horse:
No move, merc added to Antigonus
2 points into a Phalanx
33 4/21/2020 10:02:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message 2-Tyche Segment
Play a bonus or event card (discussed earlier)

3-Movement Segment - roll one die. All of your generals can EACH move:
If the die > General Initiative Rating, they can move 4MPs
If the die = General Initiative Rating, they can move 3MPs
If the die < General Initiative Rating, they can move 2MPs
The Initiative Rating is the upper left number on the General display.

OR you can skip movement - you will get a free Mercenary CU
32 4/21/2020 9:52:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message During your impulse (and there will be 5 per turn)

1-Surrender Segment - if your army(s) is/are on an non-independent (not green) circle space, you can take control (place your friendly PC on it - this is optional, you could choose to not accept surrender, like if you don't want to lose Champion status)

Also if your army (of at least 3 CUs) is on an independent space or an enemy major city, you may execute a free subjugation or siege.

31 4/21/2020 9:39:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message What you can spend Ops on:

Conduct a Forced March with one army (one op per movement point MP)

Place Control Markers (in empty spaces within 2MPs within pre-existing of another friendly control marker) - in Vassal, you right click on the space to choose control.

Train Troops - 3 Ops = Mercenary, 7 Ops = Loyal Phalangites. You keep track of unspent (accumulating) points on the track.

Upgrade Fleets - Discard 4 Ops (must be a single card) to flip one of your fleet markers to its other side (increasing the number)
30 4/21/2020 9:32:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message Some quick rules tips on cards:
Event Cards: you can play for the event or operation points (Ops)
Bonus Cards: you play for the event AND Ops
Surprise Card: you can play out of sequence (including others turns) - or discard on your turn. Anytime you play or discard, you pick another card.

There are 5 rounds of card play - everyone will be playing 5 events/bonus cards

23 4/18/2020 9:55:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message Evan-Horse is the Usurper, so anyone can attack him and maintain Champion (3L points) status

Iggy/Lion is last in VPs so decides who goes first. Turn order rotation is what is shown here in ACTS in upper left corner.
22 4/18/2020 9:14:00 PM 323 - 320 BC Moderator Message We are playing with Optional Rule 23.1 - +1 Prestige when an Independent Army is defeated. It was always meant to be played - and Vassal allows Prestige to be tracked easy for the Generals
