OK, cool. Kick off a game on ACTS then and we can keep our own board state copies. Don't care about sides - you can determine it randomly.

Damn. I was so hoping this was a discussion of the TV show.

Quote from the game between from me (Carthage) and Dr. Mabuse (Rome) Hannibal game turn #4.

"Have you read the rules to this game? You need to roll high 5-6 for sieges and low 1-2 for everything else" - KingPut to Dr. Mabuse

You can imagine how his lucks been going this game. Luckily, for him in our first big, big battle between Hannibal and Fabius Maximus he drew 2-3 reserve cards and I didn't draw any so Hannibal suffered his first defeat at the battle of Ariminum.

Here's some context:
I accrued siege 2 points at the Walled City of Gades and I knew KP's Carthaginians would come rolling down to stop me. On the turn before his imminent attack, from which I couldn't retreat from, I besieged Gades again needing only 1 more point to take it when I rolled a 1 (lose 1 CU and gain 0 siege points). The next turn my dudes (2 Generals and 3 CUS) were destroyed in the first round of attack by a single Right Flank, the only card not in my hand (no Reserves either).

Hannibal made his move towards Fabius in Italy and in my attempt to Avoid Battle (Fabius' special ability only needs 1-5) I rolled a fucking 6.

11 rounds of battle, KP and Hannibal lose, so big CU losses are in store. KP rolls a 2 for attrition and 2 on the retreat table for a total loss of only 3 CUs and 1 Political Control marker. What the shit?!

I'm about ready to flip my monitor. The gods are clearly not with my Romans.
