189 1/16/2023 1:21:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Dave, I have a 4-5 week trial that's starting next Monday, 1/23, so things have been crazy and will continue to be so for a while. Typically, however, once the pre-trial push to get ready is past and you get a week or so in, things assume somewhat more manageable dimensions.

Let me remind myself where things stand tomorrow night and we'll try to get this interesting game moving forward again.

188 12/28/2022 3:56:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Actually you played a Minor Campaign card so you get to do another move.
Just to verify, Paulus and 7CUs are at Pan and Fabius and 5CU are at Faesulae.
187 12/28/2022 3:49:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Gosh, I missed that also.
Merry Christmas to you also.
OK, I'll do my next turn.

186 12/28/2022 3:48:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Return Strategy card to hand #59: 1 / Ally Deserts

Message from Carthage:
I put the Ally Deserts back in my hand
185 12/25/2022 12:18:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Thanks for your patience, Dave.

Actually, I think I may have made another mistake. For some reason, I seemed to be thinking I had 6 MPs to work with, when in fact, I only have 4. So I think that means my move would have to end in Panormus, and your interception attempt failed. So is that the end of the move?

And a Merry Christmas to you!

184 12/11/2022 3:49:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Not a problem, I know that you have busy schedule from time to time. We play at a pace that fits your schedule. Remember that we play to have fun, not to be stressed.
Good catch on the consul always needing 5 CUs, I knew the rule just didn't catch it. So looks like 7 arrive.
You get to deal cards and check for elephants, etc.

183 12/9/2022 10:32:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Sorry, it's been another very busy ten days.

As to Fabius, something else occurred to me. Fabius and Paulus are my two consuls; Marcellus is a proconsul. So if Paulus marches with 10 CUs, and leaves Fabius with 2 CUs at Falerii, doesn't that run afoul of Rule 18.1's provision that "The Roman player may never take any voluntary action that would leave a Consul or a Consular Army with less than 5 CUs"?

That seems to indicate that the most I can send with Paulus is 7 CUs.




182 11/27/2022 3:27:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Hope you are recovering well from your surgery, take care. Of course no rush on moves.
181 11/27/2022 3:26:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #59: 1 / Ally Deserts
(Both) Draw one BC from your opponent's hand and add it to your own.

Message from Carthage:
Once you get your cards, etc, Then I'll get one of your battle cards.
180 11/27/2022 3:25:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Rats, failed interception.
I will be using the elephants so you can roll for them.
Also I'll be playing a defense card.

Message from Carthage:
Mago and 3e2 attempting to intercept at Panormus.
178 11/27/2022 3:20:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Since Fabius can not leave Italy, I assume he stays at Cosa, or do you want him to just stay with the 2CUs at Faesulae?
Yes Mago and 3e2 will attempt to intercept.

177 11/25/2022 11:43:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #37: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this instead, for the Event.

First Move:

Activate Fabius. He'll move with Paulus and 10 of the 12 CUs at Fiesole as follows:

MP 1: Cosa; embark army.
MP 2-4: Naval move to Panormus.

- You may attempt an interception.

MP 5: If you don't, or if the attempt fails, I will continue to Agrigentum.
176 11/25/2022 11:20:00 PM 216 BC Rome Return Strategy card to hand #63: 3 / Force March (any general)

Message from Rome:
I'll return this card to my hand.
175 11/25/2022 10:20:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Thanks, Dave. I had to have hand surgery on the 17th, and then a bunch of deadlines at work when I went back this past week. I'll take a look.

I see also that you'd already caught the Rule 14.3 issue. I probably had just looked at the last post on the game's dashboard.

174 11/25/2022 3:40:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Just checking that you know you need to redo your turn. No rush, just making sure. take care and Happy Thanksgiving.
173 11/16/2022 3:10:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Thanks for reminding me of Rule 14.3.
Your play of the Forced March card is not an Event. It is only relevant if the Truce card has been played.
But you can only sail with a max of 5 CUs unless you play a Campaign card.
172 11/15/2022 11:59:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #63: 3 / Force March (any general)
(Both) Move any General up to six spaces.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this for the Event, and use this to activate Fabius, who will move with Paulus and 10 CUs (leaving 2 CUs behind in Fiesole) as follows:

MP 1: Cosa.

MPs 2, 3, and 4: Naval move to Messana.

MP 5: March by land to Panormus.

You have the opportunity to attempt an interception at Panormus.

If you don't, or don't succeed, then MP 6 is to attack Mago's force at Agrigentum.

And I have no "Elephant Fright" cards to play.
171 11/15/2022 11:17:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message I will remove my PC at Rhone.
170 11/15/2022 10:49:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message And, actually, I don't think I get the two additional BCs for Sicily and Syracuse, since I didn't have a General in the battle. See Rule 14.3. I missed that originally myself: I was thinking I would get 4 cards when I left the 2 CUs there.
169 11/15/2022 10:06:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message So I lose 2 CUs and you occupy the space.

168 11/15/2022 10:06:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message That's it. I can't match.
167 11/12/2022 6:38:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Battle card #44 Double Envelopment (modify retreat by +2, lose initiative)

Message from Carthage:
Mago will start out with a DE for round 1.
166 11/12/2022 6:38:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Battle Hands dealt Battle 4

Carthage: 5 cards
Rome: 2 cards
165 11/12/2022 6:37:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Hey Jeff, as I was laying in bed, I realize that we did the battle wrong. Did not add in your 2 extra cards for control of Sicily and Syracuse. So you should have had 4 BCs and then lose 2 to the Elephants. So net 2 cards.
I'm going to deal battle cards again and we'll battle again and see if you get past round 1.

164 11/11/2022 3:09:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message No battle Attrition.
So both Roman CUs die and you will have to remove a PC for the battle.
At the end Mago and 3e2 are at Agrig.

Message from Carthage:
Rolling for 1 round of battle attrition.
162 11/11/2022 3:06:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message You didn't deal my any Battle Cards but it doesn't really matter as when I play in Battle Round 1, you can not match.
So I just need to roll for battle attrition since your 2 CUs will die in any case.

161 11/9/2022 11:32:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message It succeeds. That allows you to remove two of my BCs. So I'm now down to 0 BCs. I guess at this point you can proceed to resolve the battle.

Message from Rome:
We proceed to Elephant charge die roll, which is only unsuccessful on 1 roll of 1.

159 11/9/2022 11:31:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message I think I can take a crack at resolving the battle.

You have 2 (Mago) + 3 CUs = 5 BCs
I have 2 CUs = 2.


158 11/9/2022 11:27:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message No "Elephant Fright" card.

Damn, I forgot about all the consequences of not having a General there -- no Allies, reduced defense against Elephant charge, etc. This is what happens when you get rusty. I'll have to make an entry about this in my "Strategy and Tactics" notes.

157 11/8/2022 3:33:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Mago and 3e2 land at Agrig and see 2 Roman troops.
No attacker cards for Mago but will use his elephants.
Any defenders?

Message from Carthage:
Mago sails with 3e2, has good weather, let's see if he makes it. die mod is -4
155 11/8/2022 3:31:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Ah, I didn't get your joke, but I get it now. Ya, it is a dud card !

154 11/6/2022 11:15:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message No weather card to play to frustrate your plans.

And I was actually just teasing you about messing up my plans to lay siege to Novo Carthago.

When I first saw you play that card, I thought, "Damn: how does he always draw that card?" [I think you have drawn it at least twice, and I'm not sure I ever have.]

But then my next, more comforting thought, was: "But isn't it about time for him to draw a dud card with that play for a change?" And so, happily for me, it proved!

153 11/6/2022 3:14:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #2: 3 / Sicilia Revolts
(Both) If your opponent has control of Sicily, remove all his non-walled PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CUs.

Message from Carthage:
Carth move #4
Mago and 3e2 sail from Carthage, headed to Agrigentum.
Do you play a card before I roll on the Naval Combat Chart.
Mago will be rolling with a net -4 die mod.
152 11/6/2022 3:12:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Hey, I didn't get a great card from you, I got Opposing Fleet breaks Seige !
151 11/6/2022 3:11:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message No need to apologize, you play games for enjoyment, not feeling that you need to rush to do a turn. Play when you can, I know that. Family and work have to come first.

150 11/5/2022 12:02:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message No result. Over to you.

146 11/5/2022 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #21: 2 / Mercenaries Desert
(Rome) The Carthaginian player must use the Attrition Table for all his forces on the map not in friendly walled city spaces. Units with Generals are exempt if a separate die roll <= the General's Battle Rating.

Message from Rome:
Actually, I will go ahead and play this card for the Event.
145 11/4/2022 11:51:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Curses! So much for my plan to besiege Novo Carthago!

It is uncanny how you always manage to draw that card.

I need to go to bed now, but will make my move tomorrow.
144 11/4/2022 11:49:00 PM 216 BC Rome Give random Strategy card to Carthage Message from Rome:
Sorry to keep you waiting. It's been a bear of a week at work.

143 10/31/2022 11:45:00 PM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #55: 3 / Messenger Intercepted
(Both) Draw one Strategy Card from your opponent's hand and add it to your own.

Message from Carthage:
Carth Move #3
Let's see what good card I can get.
142 10/30/2022 12:24:00 AM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #30: 3 / Carthaginian Siege Train
(Carthage) Place the Siege Train Marker with any Carthaginian General. A General with the Siege Train ignores the -1 die roll modifier applied against Carthaginian sieges.

Message from Rome:
I'll use this to activate Aemilius Paulus, who will sail with 3 CUs from Agrigentum to Cosa, and then move inland to join Fabius at Faesulae from there. Thus, at the end of this move, there will be 12 CUs with Fabius and Paulus at Faesulae, and 2 CUs remaining in Agrigentum.

141 10/28/2022 3:03:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Mago is now with Hanno at Carthage with 6e2
140 10/28/2022 3:01:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 3 / Celtiberia Revolts
(Both) If your opponent controls Celtiberia, remove all his PCs in that province which are not stacked with his CU's.

Message from Carthage:
Carth move #2
Mago will sail alone to Carthage.
No need to roll for the sailing it's a -6 die mod.
139 10/20/2022 12:04:00 AM 216 BC Rome Message Every small victory helps when you're trying to salve the memory of that heartbreaking defeat at Mutina.

2. Second Activation of my Minor Campaign:

Activate Paulus, who will march with 7 CUs from Rome as follows:

- Falerii
- Ariminium; conference with Marcellus; pick up 2 of Marcellus's 14 CUs (now reduced to 12), and then march with 9 CUs to:
- Falerii
- Faesulae.

138 10/19/2022 11:59:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message View of the battle area at Agrigentum, just north of what is today the Valley of the Temples:

Let's try that again.

Carthage: 9 cards
Rome: 1 cards
132 10/16/2022 11:51:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message The Battle of Agrigentum:

Rome = 9 BCs (2 for Paulus +5 for 5 CUs + 1 for Sicilian Allies +1 for Allies from Syracuse).

Cathage = 1 BC (1 CU).

131 10/16/2022 11:49:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Thanks for that reminder. I've gotten a little rusty on some things, but it should come back quickly now that we're able to get back into a groove again.


130 10/14/2022 12:42:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message The brave troop is scared to see all those troops coming but will bravely stay and fight (no choice).
Note that playing a Campaign card is not an Event, it just counts as an Operation. This is important related to Truce card.
129 10/8/2022 11:45:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #39: 3 / Minor Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY TWO GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Rome:
I'll play this for the event. My first activation will be:

1. A. Paulus in Rome. Unless you play the Bad Weather card, he will embark 5 CUs and sail to Panormus on the north coast of Sicily. Once the troops are ashore, they will march across the mountainous center of the island and attack Mutin's Numidians in Agrigentum.

128 10/8/2022 11:37:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message No problem at all. I was swamped with work until I left on vacation, from which I have just returned. After having to drive into the thick of what by then was Tropical Storm Ian in North Carolina on Friday, we then experienced a gorgeous week on the Georgia coast in the storm's wake.

127 10/4/2022 3:17:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #14: 2 / Ligurian Recruits
(Carthage) Place two Carthaginian CU's with any General located in Liguria, Cisalpinia or Etruria.

Message from Carthage:
Carth move #1
Hannibal will also recruit more troops, add 2 CUs to Hannibal at Taurini giving 8e2.
Sorry for the delay, I missed the email that you had done your move. Take care.
126 9/24/2022 11:38:00 PM 216 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Event #48: 1 / Allied Auxiliaries (Campania)
(Rome) Place two Roman CUs with any General in Italy if CAMPANIA is Roman controlled.

Message from Rome:
This is an easy one. Add 2 more CUs to the 10 CUs already with Aemilius Paulus and Fabius at Rome, so now 12 CUs.

125 9/24/2022 11:36:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message Once again, my apologies for the delay. But there's good news in that my 10/24 trial has been pushed off to 1/23/23. I have another brief to finish writing that's due Tuesday, and then I'll be away for a badly needed week-plus getaway from Thursday, 9/29 through Saturday, 10/8 and probably won't be able to make a move during that period.

124 9/10/2022 12:06:00 PM 216 BC Rome Message OK. Another very busy week at work. Let me cogitate a bit, and I will get out a move tonight.
123 9/3/2022 1:22:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Message Roman can go first.

122 9/3/2022 1:09:00 AM 216 BC Carthage Draw Strategy cards 7 cards drawn.

115 8/31/2022 10:45:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message It's consular elections time in Rome!! Cue the usual hoopla, horsetrading, and payment of denarii. Some may see this as bribery, but we prefer to call it "fiscal stimulus."

7 - Titus Longus
6 - Flaminius
5 - Fabius Maximus
4 - Publius Scipio
3 - Gaius Nero
2 - Terrentius Varro
1 - Aemilius Paulus


114 8/31/2022 10:24:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Roman Reinforcements:

+2 CUs with Varro's army at Rome, so it now stands at 10 CUs.

+3 CUs with Marcellus's army at Ariminium, so its strength now stands at 14 CUs.

I will retain Marcellus as my Proconsul, and remove Publius and Varro, despite his fine record in the early going. And so we move on to consular elections.


113 8/31/2022 10:21:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message I hope you get your rain. We've been having some very intense thunderstorms over the past few weeks, so everything is pretty green around here. But we are also far enough out of the city to be on a well, so we take our water usage seriously and try not to waste it. It's remarkable how much the well yield can vary from one property to another.

112 8/30/2022 3:24:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message Jeff, no need to apologize. We play at a leisurely pace and I'm fine with that. We play games to have fun, not feeling that we have to do a turn when we need to handle other life things. So just do your moves when you can without feeling rushed. take care.
111 8/29/2022 10:29:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message My apologies for the delay, Dave. I have been successively preoccupied with a brief that was due to be filed last Wednesday; a visit this past weekend from my son, prospective daughter-in-law, and actual sister-in-law, with each visiting party bringing a small but very cute and lively dog of their own; and now by a two-day motions hearing that finishes tomorrow. So I'll place my reinforcements and hold the consular election tomorrow night.



110 8/26/2022 2:33:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message End of turn 2 stuff:
No winter isolation.
Province count is 9 - 9.
Time for Carth reinforcements.
Add 1 to Han, Gisgo at Taurini giving 6e2
Add 2 to to Hasdr, Mago at New Carthage giving 6CU.
Add 1 to Hanno at Carthage giving 6e2.
There are 1 CUs at Dertosa, Agrig
Onto Roman reinforcements and new consuls.
109 8/26/2022 2:23:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message Nice photo, looks like a great summer day. We are also having a nice summer although I wish we would get some rain. We are in the country on a well and need rain !
108 8/21/2022 11:56:00 AM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #52: 2 / Pestilence
(Both) One opposing Army currently besieging a city must roll on the Attrition Table with a +1 die roll modifier.

Message from Rome:
Those dastardly Numidians! Hey, if they wanted to come visit the temples, all they needed to do was ask!

https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=Temples%20Agrigentum

I'll use this card to place Roman PCs at Narbo and Druentia.

And that concludes Turn 2. I have to run off to the office now, and probably won't be back until late in the day. I will do the end-of-turn procedures then, if you haven't already done them.

I hope all is going well with you, and that you are enjoying good end-of-summer weather. We have finally gotten some more comfortable temperatures, and I have been able to get out for two hikes recently and a bike ride recently.

On the bike ride, I was able to take this photograph that catches just how lovely our late summer can be:

(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:

The Numidians take control of Agrigentum and a CU stays there.
106 8/19/2022 11:59:00 PM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #60: 1 / Storms At Sea
(Both) Play after your opponent moves an Army or CUs using Sea Movement. The force suffers Attrition and the die roll must be modified by +2.

Message from Rome:
I'll use this to place a PC at Enna.
105 8/14/2022 1:07:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #6: 1 / Marharbal's Cavalry
(Carthage) Play during any battle. You may use this card as a Double Envelopment BC which (if matched) does not automatically give the defender the initiative.

Message from Carthage:
Carth card #6
Place PC at Iberus in Northern Spain
104 8/12/2022 12:18:00 AM 217 BC Rome Play Strategy card as Operations #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage

I'll use this to activate Varro and his 8 CUs, who will march as follows in order to return to Rome for a well-earned Triumph:

- Neapolis ("So, you say that volcano is still active?": https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=Vesuvius)

- Capua (the remains of the amphitheater there are still quite impressive: https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=Capua%20amphitheater)

- Rome ("I only wish all roads were built to the same standard as this Appian Way!": https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=Appian%20Way).

Add PC at Zuccabar in Africa.
