84 5/17/2019 8:31:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message No worries, just as a quick helper what you need to do:
* Place your reinforcements
* Place your replacements
* Roll for strategic submarine warfare
* Draw cards
* Play your first card (No FOQ card, so I can't go first)

What you might want to do:
* Check my move (I hope I did everything correctly but I tend to place units where they can't go)
