323 12/21/2020 4:14:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Thanks for the game, Mike. I'll send the report to Tim. I was pretty worried going in that last battle with Marcellus -- if you had better luck with the draw, Hannibal's campaign in Italy would have been in trouble and Syracuse was just about to fall.

Happy holidays!

282 12/19/2020 3:13:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message FP has a Carthaginian PC so does not meet option 1 conditions. It also only has 1 CU while Marcellus has 5 CUs so does not meet option 2.
281 12/19/2020 2:56:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message I don't think that is the meaning of 15.1.1. I am probably wrong, but I think it reads:
option 1. Friendly PC and clear of enemy CU
OR
option 2 more friendly CUs that retreating force

Maybe we can ask Tim or check BGG.
Thanks,

280 12/19/2020 2:04:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message I think that Marcellus has to retreat to Praeneste (see 15.1). He could only retreat to FP if there were more CUs there than Marcellus' retreating army.
