135 9/13/2020 7:16:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message ???????

You are kicking my butt - I was going to resign at the end of next turn if things didn't turn around.

As for For the People - I have it - I've looked at it
about 10 years ago - if you want to 'teach me' the game
we can slowly go thru it - otherwise


Choices seem to be for me of games I've been playing
Twilight Struggle
Break Out
VITP or WAS
Washington's War
Tigers in the Mist

Games I would need coaching on:
Monty's Gamble
Storm over Arnhem
Path of Glory
134 9/12/2020 9:34:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Well, I see no reason to continue the game.

Do you want to play something else? I think you mentioned For The People once. That shares a lot of the mechanics of the other card driven games but has some of its own quirks. The generals selection, river crossing/control, and reinforcement placement all take some getting used to. That's on top of the usual nasty event ramifications. A few of the events are contingent on prior events occurring or specific board conditions.
