I have to admit the supply rules in this game have me flumuxxed. Just when I think I have got my head around them I do a loop and end up confused again!
The situation: Cathage controls all of Africa, Caralis and Nuoro. They also control Olbia but are under attack there by Rome whom also control Aleria.
The Roman fleet is in the Corsica / Sardinia Sea Zone, the Carthaginian fleet is not.
Can anyone help me with the two examples below;
1/ In the battle is Carthage able to play any swords to the battle? As I presume they are out of supply? I understand they cannot play ships due to the blocking effect of the Roman fleet, but does this fleet mean the whole of Corsica / Sardinia is out of supply for Carthage so they cannot re-inforce the battle at all?
2/ At the end of the round if the Roman fleet is in the Corsica / Sardinia sea zone does the Carthage fleet have to be there as well in order to gain victory points from the Islands? I presume so, and it was this that led to my confusion above.
