486 10/18/2021 3:42:00 PM 206-204 BC Carthage 34 3 Event #34: 3 / Major Campaign
(Both) MOVE ANY THREE GENERALS. Each General can move up to four spaces with 10 combat units.

Message from Carthage:
Sorry. Gaming time has been consumed by launching the TS tournament with weekend.

Sigh. I don't have the guts to let you go first, or the imagination to do anything more clever.

Part 1: Hasdrubal and 8 sail to Carthage. Reaction before I make the Naval Comabat roll?
471 10/15/2021 4:44:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage 36 2 Operations #36: 2 / Diplomacy
(Both) Convert any one non-walled, non-tribal enemy PC Marker in a space without an enemy CU into a friendly PC Marker.

Message from Carthage:
Well, I would have used this to flip Zama, except I forgot Gigso is sitting on a red spot.

Flip Hispalis
Place PC in Laminium
464 10/15/2021 3:18:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome 63 3 Event #63: 3 / Force March (any general)
(Both) Move any General up to six spaces.

Message from Rome:
Ok here is my "pro" move. African sails to Rome, PU the 3 CUs there, sails back to Carthage for 2 siege attempts using his Force March ability. Want to do the "honors"?
462 10/15/2021 2:54:00 PM 209-207 BC Carthage 60 1 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 Carthage:
Place a CU in Zuccabar.

I just realized that we collaborated to make an illegal play. In journal entry 412, Paulus tried to intercept into Carthage. However, that was not possible because the space already contained "non-moving" enemy CUs. I actually invited the intercept in a previous message, so I had the rule wrong too. It didn't succeed in any case. But something to note for next turn.

(I think the CUs inside the city count to prevent the interception in this situation. Do I perhaps have that wrong?)
457 10/14/2021 5:33:00 PM 209-207 BC Rome 54 2 Event #54: 2 / Treachery Within City
(Both) If you use this card as an OC to conduct a siege, you may roll twice on the Siege Table and use both results.

Message from Rome:
Let's have Africanus scoop up everyone from both adjacent spaces, return to Carthage, and siege twice. So now 12CU and two proconsuls there.
