All further Operations cards played by your opponent this turn are -1 to their value (to a minimum value of 1 OP).

We will play this as the event.

In ACTS, there is a way to "play" the card...so on your turn you can play your "headline event" and then your regular turn card.

ACTS will manage the deck - meaning keep track of permament discards, reshuffles, etc...
