216 1/2/2020 9:53:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message thanks, happy new year to you too!

doesn't 4AD take a step loss since SEAC air got 10x1?
and it is a defender victory, since Allies lost 4 steps to Japan 3, so attacker retreats to the entering hex, no choice. this causes an overstack in Akyab, oops

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.
