To go quickly is foolish. To go slowly is prudent. Not to go; that is wisdom.


I just want to point out how much of a bad idea is to let Romans build Walled Cities.

So, if I understand correctly:

- Romans can't act on the next turn unless they burn a Desperation card. This includes advancing the Siege in Tarquini.
- Punching the Gauls in Sentinum won't let me claim Sena Galicia, because Sentinum is a Gaul space for all intents and purposes.
- I don't lose any VP for having Tarquini under Siege, but I will lose 1 reinforcement.

Also, what will happen if I attack Praeneste (which currently has no leader, just 1 CU)?

The Romans do not have a card to play next action round, yes. However, if there are still 3CUs in Tarquini after the Attrition phase, they will get a roll on the siege table during the Surrender phase.

You would not be able to take control of Sena Galica for political consequences for winning a combat in Sentinum. However, Sentinum is independent, so it is also considered hostile to the Gauls. So they have to roll on the attrition table during the attrition phase, for instance.

Yes, you will not lose any VP for Tarquini, but will lose the reinforcement CU if it is still under siege during the Scoring phase.

If you moved into Praeneste, the Romans would have a chance to intercept with Valerius from Roma. They could not attempt to avoid battle as there is no leader.

Samnite Minor Leader-A and 5CUs moves to Aufidena, Corfinium, and then Praeneste.

Per PM, Romans attempt to intercept with Valerius's army in Roma.

Interception roll: 4

Interception attempt is unsuccessful. Samnite Minor Leader-A and 5CUs attacks 1 Roman CU.

Samnites have +12 drm for force ration and +2 drm for superior leadership, for a total drm of +14.

Romans have +1 drm for fighting in a friendly space.

Samnite combat roll: 6,5,1 = 12 + 14 = 26

Roman combat roll: 6,1,3 = 10 + 1 = 11

Samnites win the battle and lose 1CU. Romans lose 1CU.

No CUs removed.

Gallic Minor Leader-A's army in Sentinum: 5
1CU and Minor Leader-A is removed.

Gallic Minor Leader-C's army in Faesulae: 4
1CU is removed.



Surrender Phase

Gauls, would you like the Carthaginians to roll on the siege table against Syracusae? Would you like to take control of Faesulae?

Mr.Misfit
Jan 10, 2013


Cathaginians will attempt a roll.

Gaul will take control of FAESULAE

Taran_Wanderer
Nov 4, 2013


Carthage rolls on the Siege table in Syracusae: 5,1 = 6

Hamilcar's army loses 1CU and 1 Siege point is gained.

Gaul takes control of Faesulae.

Isolation Phase

No Powers' PC Markers are isolated.

Scoring Phase

Etruscan/Samnites gain 1VP for control of Praeneste.
Greeks gain 1VP for control of Capua and lose 1VP for loss of Messana, for no net change in VP.
Romans lose 2VP for loss of Praeneste and Capua.

Reinforcement Phase

Transalpine Gauls receive 1CU in their box.
Volscii receive 1CU in Antium.
Carthage receives 3CU.
Gauls receive 1CU for each of Eporedia, Genua, Mediolanum, Bononia, Sena Gallica, and Patavium, for 6CU total.
Etruscan/Samnites receive 1CU for each of Pisae, Tarquinii, Aufidena, Bovianum, and Larinum, for 5CU total.
Greeks receive 1CU for each of Neapolis and Tarentum, for 2CU total.
Romans receive 2CU for Roma and 1CU for each of Sutrium, Narnia, and Velitrae, for 5CU total.



Romans, please choose where Carthage will receive its reinforcements.

Then, descending VP order, each power should post where he would like his reinforcements. Minor Leaders may be re-positioned at will.

I think I have an Etruscan Minor Leader available? If so, he goes on Pisae.
