7 7/5/2019 5:22:00 PM Turn 1 USSR Message Your file is corrupt.
(I'm showing it as a Note Pad file.)

also note rule:

C. Headline Phase: Each player secretly selects a card from their hand. Once both players have made their choice, they reveal their cards to each other simultaneously. These cards are called ‘Headline cards’ and their Events take place in this phase (and if the event title has an asterisk, are removed from the game normally). To determine which Event takes place first, look at the Operations value on each card; that is its Headline Value.

The card with the higher Headline Value takes effect first. In the event of a tie, the Headline Event played by the US player goes into effect first.



6 7/5/2019 4:37:00 PM Turn 1 US Message My OP is 4 vs you 3.
