172 11/11/2019 9:18:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message sorry I am confused, why did card #68 (end of ISR) go back to deck?
and just want to check you are saying discard #44 (Tokyo express) with no offensive so I should resume with my next card from file 057? you can play the card or return to hand and play something else, don't have to forfeit the card because of kamikaze mistake
171 11/11/2019 8:47:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message you are right. I've undid the kamikaze effects. for my turn I will just discard the selected card without an offensive

Message from Japanese:
167 11/9/2019 12:16:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I don't think you can play a kamikaze card like this as the offensive player (same for any reaction card like sub attack) see page 7, 5.23: "Only the player currently cast in the role of Re-action player may play Reaction cards" Let me know if you agree. and if you want to replay the card differently

I am fine with random sides in Here I Stand

153 11/7/2019 7:10:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Glad to hear you enjoyed VQ, someone in my f2f group was really into it when it first came out, sad I never played it. At the time, I was more into euros and worker placements. Cut my teeth on power grid and Agricola and Le Havre. Yeah, I mean, I was planning on seeing what kind of response it would get, but I was hoping for six
152 11/5/2019 10:18:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I'm interested in Here I Stand in general, as a matter of fact I just played Virgin Queen for the first time last weekend, face to face. Enjoyed it a lot. I haven't played HIS but also own it. Are you thinking of trying to get a full 6 player PBEM game going? That sounds a little daunting to be honest
151 11/5/2019 10:14:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Play Strategy card as Operations #79: 3 / Soviets Invade Manchuria
Manchuria: If Tojo has resigned, then this card MUST be played as an event, otherwise it can only be played as an OC. If played as the event the Japanese permanently lose two Resource Hexes (3302 and 3303). Place a Soviet Flag in each hex to denote Allied control that counts for Progress of the War. Bonus: If China has not surrendered, move the China marker two boxes toward or into the Stable Front box.. RESHUFFLE: If played as an OC or discarded, place this card back in the deck and reshuffle the deck at the end of the game turn. If played as the event, permanently remove this card from the deck and do NOT reshuffle. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive.

OC: 3 EC: 0

NOTE: Deck will be reshuffled before next deal.Message from Allies:
