61 7/9/2024 7:49:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Ok - I looked at the log file and it looks like ACTS allowed me to play the same card twice in a turn.

No idea how or why - probably operator error on my part somehow

I can either discard a 2OC card (the one I just returned to my hand from the FO

or a random card - whatever you think is good

This is all because I couldn't understand why I still show 4 cards left while you only showed 1

Let me know what you think before I proceed

Message from Allies:
58 7/9/2024 7:40:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Something strange happened in ACTS - I played Australian Coastwatchers out of my FO to detect your offensive earlier in this turn

I drew a card as directed on the Coastwatchers card

And for some reason it moved a card from my hand into the FO. Not from a card play.

It may have something to do with my last offensive card needing to be re-classified after I played it into the FO instead of as an event as I intended.

Either way, I'm going to try to move the card that was incorrectly moved to the FO back into my hand

And then it will be my card play
