784 10/3/2020 5:39:00 PM 203-201 BC Moderator Message Thanks guys for completing the game. I prefer not to adjudicate if I can.

Please post a writeup on the bracket site when you can.

Commiserations to Carthage.

I will advance the Romans to their next game.
783 10/3/2020 5:37:00 PM 203-201 BC Carthage Message Sooo close. I just needed a bit of luck with the Alps crossing and Hanno's forays into Western Numidia, but it wasn't meant to be.

Congrats. I'm glad we finished the game; it was a see-saw war.

I had other plans for this card. Now, as 2 Ops to flip/place PCs in:

Taurini
Sitifis

It's the very unlikely Hanno-Paulus intercept battle that sealed the deal.

779 10/3/2020 5:28:00 PM 203-201 BC Rome Message I really glad to have finished that game, it was the wild and wooliest I have ever played. Hannibal into Italy, pushed back, into Intaly again, pushed back again, Scipio A into N africa, killed, Roman invasion of Spain pushed back, and finally Hannibal back to Italy while Roman force invades N Africa again!

Thanks for the game!
