Well, not yet, but here is the die roll.
Need a 5 or 6 for them to work, 1 for them to backfire.

340 1/16/2021 2:26:00 PM 211-210 BC Carthage Message Hannibal fails. That was a fairly important roll not to miss. We'll see what happens now.

Battle strengths are
Rome = 10 +4 leader +1 ally (you only control Campania at the moment) = 15

Carthage = 8 +4 leader + 4 allies -1 failed withdrawal = 15.

With much trepidation, I will roll for elephants. Do you wish to play Elephant Fright. (That takes place before the die roll.)

330 1/15/2021 3:26:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Yes, things are looking grim for Rome. Africanus has his work cut out for him.

For Consuls, do you mean (Tiberius) Longus and Fabius? Marcellus is your PC. Fabius sure is popular with the home crowd.

You still need to place Africanus and 5 CUs. (Technically that is supposed to happen before consuls are elected, but no matter.)

If you would like to adjust your other CU placements in light of Africanus alignment, that is fine by me.

After you place, you are welcome to advance the turn and declare if you will campaign.

(Both) If your opponent has control of Corsica/Sardinia, remove all his PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CUs.

Message from Carthage:
You had a tough hand this turn, and mine unbelievable. I can't recall having a better set of cards.

Finish by removing the PCs in Corsica/Sardinia.

This makes the Province count 13-4. Rome to remove 9 PCs.

Carthage reinforcements will be
1 with Hannibal, now 6e2, in Heraclea
1 with Hanno, now 9, in Cirta
2 with Hasdrubal in Tarraco, now 12
Note that Mago is currently alone in Croton and Gisgo is with Hannibal

315 1/13/2021 1:02:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message Nero has a choice of retreat to either Paesteum or Tarentum. That takes place before you remove PCs for political consequences.
314 1/13/2021 12:55:00 AM 213-212 BC Carthage Message That's 1 for attrition and 4 for Retreat.

294 1/11/2021 4:38:00 PM 213-212 BC Rome Message I have Nero 9CUs in Heraclea unless my board is totally messed up.
293 1/11/2021 1:34:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #40: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Carthage:
A second Campaign!

Part 1: Mage leaves 1 CU in Carthage and sails with 1 to Croton. With Phillip, Carthage, Sail-with-1 and Mago modifiers the total modifier if -5, so no need to roll the die.

Part 2: Hannibal takes the 1 CU that Mago brought and attacks Scipio with 5e3 in Heraclea. Nominal battle cards are 16-13 before elephants.

You have the option to try to avoid. If you succeed and I pursue, the CU that Mago brought over would not be able to continue as it has already moved 4.
292 1/11/2021 1:26:00 PM 213-212 BC Carthage Message No effect of attrition.

It is really weird for Hannibal to be withdrawing this much, but I have had quite untenable hands. Quite remarkable that at a 5 card disadvantage you nevertheless had a credible change to beating Hannibal with a DE. I had no DE and only 1 Reserve, so only that and a probe to defend with. That, by the way, is the only Reserve I have seen all game, except the one you stole from me in the last battle!!

As a side note, in the previous battle, I only had the 3 FAs and no Reserve, so if you have played the Reserve as an FA in Round 4, you would have won that fight.

(Carthage) Place one Carthaginian CU and a PC in any non-walled city space in Sicilia that contains no Roman CUs. If the space contains a Roman PC the PC is simply flipped.

Message from Carthage:
That was a placement rather than a flip as Paestium was still empty.
