  14. ACTS Game Name: BPA 2019 #84
    Carthaginian Player Name: Dan Sirbu
    Roman Player Name: Keith Wixson
    Bid for Side, Winning Bid Amount, and Side Chosen: Carthage for 1
    Winning Player: Dan Sirbu (Carthage)
    Turn Game Ended: Turn 9 (203-201 BC)
    Method of Victory: Resignation
    Final province count victory
    # of Provinces controlled (Winner) : 11
    # of Provinces controlled (Defeated) : 7
    Turn Number on which the following occur:
    Syracuse Joins Carthage : T9
    Syracuse sacked by Rome : N/A
    Philip Joins Carthage : T2
    Philip Makes Peace with Rome : N/A
    Death of Hannibal : N/A
    Death of Africanus (and circumstances) : T9 (Hasdrubal relieves Carthage after Scipio puts the city under siege)
    Truce (whether as event or ops) : T3 (ops), T7 (ops)
    Messenger Intercepted by Rome : T5, T9
    Messenger Intercepted by Carthage : N/A

    Rome responds to Hannibal’s Alps offensive with a well-timed invasion of Africa aided by a Numidian ally — Hasdrubal is recalled from Spain but loses the first battle at favourable odds then rescues Africa with the second when at a disadvantage. Hannibal makes inroads taking Etruria after winning several engagements with Marcellus but gets slowed by attrition, while Mago’s landing in Lucania gets beaten back. After Scipio arrives he defeats Hannibal and re-takes Etruria. Mago secures Sardinia, Syracuse joins Carthage in the final turn, and Hasdrubal defends Iberia and relieves Scipio’s siege on Carthage with a series of campaigns in spite of losing his messenger.

    Truce (whether as event or ops) Turn 4,6 Rome, 7,9 Carthage
    Messenger Intercepted by Rome Turn 3
    Messenger Intercepted by Carthage Turn 4,8

    Definitely closest game I’ve ever played, (not out of so many I guess). Rome into Spain turn 1, Hannibal returned kicked them out, long struggle for the Islands, turn 8 charge across the Alps by Hannibal leading to 2 very tight battles, game finally decided by a good Roman hand on turn 9. Thanks to my opponent for tolerance on rules questions.

  16. Apologies, missed a Truce play in Ladder Game 1 Rome Turn 3 Ops, 4 Event, 6 Op, Carthage 7 Op, 9 Event.

    Standard opening turn with Hannibal marching into Italy and winning a battle. Marcellus forced Hannibal back across the Alps in Turn 2 but as that was happening, Hasdrubal was able to sail into Sicily and take control there. Slow play building forces next few turns and subjugations in Gaul by Rome. Turn 5 saw Hasdrubal defeat Marcellus decisively before Syracuse went over to Carthage. Marcellus was then trapped in Messana and lost the next battle to Hasdrubal resulting in 10 CU loss before resignation.

  19. ACTS Game Name: Bob and Philip’s game

    AREA game of Hannibal:Rome vs. Carthage played before Y/N: N

    Winning Player: Phil Watkins
    Turn Game Ended: 8
    Method of Victory: Resignation
    Final province count victory

    # of Provinces controlled (Defeated) 5
    Turn Number on which the following occur:
    Syracuse Joins Carthage Turn 4
    Syracuse sacked by Rome N/A
    Philip Joins Carthage Turn 2
    Philip Makes Peace with Rome N/A
    Death of Hannibal (and circumstances) N/A
    Death of Africanus (and circumstances) Turn 7
    Truce (whether as event or ops) Event Turn 2
    Messenger Intercepted by Rome 2
    Messenger Intercepted by Carthage 0
    Optional Adjustments Used:Option 26.1.1 to limit the impact of Messenger Intercepted

    The game saw Hannibal enter Italy on turn 2. Rome reacted by undertaking several attacks on Hannibal to whittle down the Carthaginian forces. Hannibal’s higher strategic rating served him well in combat but he suffered a lot in the attrition die rolls, winning plenty of battles but also rapidly being reduced to a very small army. By turn 4 Hannibal was forced to retreat back into Gaul. Marcellus followed into Gaul and with a campaign card came after Hannibal. Hannibal ran as fast as he could back into Spain to collect another group of troops to try it all over again. Hannibal reentered Italy on turn 5 and was again whittled down by the Romans. However, the Romans were starting to run low on troops themselves and by the end of turn 6 had two consuls plus Scipio Africanus in the same space, which mean that one of the other consuls was normally the commander, rather than S.A. This made movement quite constrained for the Roman and Hannibal always had a higher strategy rating than the Romans in combat. Hannibal managed to grab quite a lot of provinces and in the last two turns Rome lost 9 PC markers. The final straw for Rome was a battle loss with a 6 for the pursuit roll.
