Message from Carthage:
Ouch. That was another tough battle for Nero. Sorry!

But I must press my advantage, so I'll activate Hannibal and his full stack to attack Nero. You may attempt an Avoid Battle if you wish.

I'll draw cards now and decide who plays first
41 8/17/2020 10:38:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Sorry, bit confused. I added 5 CU to rome as per the reinforcement file i sent you (so now 13). Publius scipio goes back to the track with generals so hes first one (goes publius, paulus, varro, etc) with flaminus being last one (so #1-#7). i'm happy to do with a 999 die roll but result is same as I've already done. Apologies if the 5CU placement didnt go through, but I'm seeing it fine on the log I sent you
40 8/17/2020 8:17:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message hey Andrew, your procedure for consuls is unclear to me. Once you select Longus as proconsul, P.Scipio returns to the mix of Generals. I'm unclear where you placed him in the order on the side (top, bottom, middle?). I usually post a list of all 7 available Generals in the journal, then roll 7 999-sided dice (to avoid ties), and then the two highest numbers are the new Generals. There are other ways to do this, and I don't have a preference as long as it's clear.

Also, you neglected to add 5CUs to the map, which is supposed to take place before you do your consuls and, more importantly before you draw cards (as having that knowledge can greatly influence what you choose).

I don't know what to do about the cards in your hand. Technically, you shouldn't have them yet, but I guess we can let it slide this time, but please follow the proper order on future turns.

Let me know how you wish to proceed and we'll be back on track soon!
