II/13 Samnite over II/9 Syracusan, 4-1
II/10 Camillan Roman over II/8b Campanian, 4-2

(The Samnite victory over the “rebellious” Syracusans reaffirms the latter’s vassal status. The
Samnites must give a gift of three cards to their vassal, and bestow cards PY-08, RO-08 and SA-06
to them.)

(The Tarentine victory over Pyrrhus of Epirus makes the latter a vassal of the Tarentines. The Tarentines must give a gift of three cards to their vassal, and bestow cards EL-07, SY-07 and SY-08 to them.)

(The Etruscan victory over the Mamertines makes the latter a vassal of The Etruscan League. The Etruscan League must give a gift of three cards to their vassal, and bestow cards EL-08, MM-07 and SY-06 to them. The Mamertines are no longer vassals of the Roman Republic.)

The Roman Republic’s bid card point value now exceeds that of the Etruscan League; they are therefore no longer vassals of the Etruscan League.

(The Campanian victory over Pyrrhus of Epirus makes the latter a vassal of the Campanians. The Campanians must give a gift of three cards to their vassal, and bestow cards EL-07, SY-07 and SY-08 to them. Pyrrhus of Epirus is no longer a vassal of Taranto.)

(The Syracusan victory over the Mamertines makes the latter a vassal of Syracuse. The Syracusans must give a gift of three cards to their vassal, and bestow cards EL-08, MM-07 and SY-06 to them. The Mamertines are no longer a vassal of the Etruscan League.)

II/8a Bruttian or Lucanian (Mamertines over II/9 Syracusan, 2G-0
II/27b Pyrrhic over II/13 Samnite, 4-2

(The increasingly feral Mamertines manage to break the rules without anyone noticing, and attack their erstwhile rulers in Syracuse. Their victory makes Syracuse their vassal, and they therefore bestow cards CA-08, TA-07 and TA-08 to them. The Mamertines are no longer a vassal of Syracuse.)

Campania’s catastrophic loss to Rome leaves them with just 2 points, which is even fewer than those possessed by their vassal Pyrrhus of Epirus. The Epirotes are therefore no longer vassals of Campania.

Final Campaign Bid Card Standings, 275 BC:
First Place: II/10 Camillan Roman – 61 points
