133 2/2/2023 8:49:00 PM 215-214 BC Rome Message P. Skippy successfully intercepts and enters Boii with 10 CUs. I will choose Skippy as the commander.

Hannibal has the option to back up and stop moving.

If Hannibal stays then since Carthage instigated the attack, you must roll to see if there is a change of command in the Roman army. 1-3 No change, 4-6 Longus takes command.

Then a battle would occur and we would start with the following BCs
Carthage: 4 Battle Rating + 10 CUs + 1 Ally + 1 Friendly Tribe = 16
Rome : 21 CUs + (1 or 2 for Battle Rating) + 2 Allies + 1 Interception = 25 or 26 but there is a max of 20.

Then we would roll for the Elephant charge if you so desire.

Does Hannibal back up or stand and fight?
