Message from USSR:
178 5/14/2020 5:25:00 PM Turn 5 US Message There's no prereq to playing the card actually, it just simply means I get no benefit if I don't have more battlegrounds. So you can put it back in your hand and play it and it will then go into the perm discard pile.
177 5/14/2020 5:15:00 PM Turn 5 USSR Message I treated the card as Operations (No Event) so it would go into the discard pile. My understanding is if the prerequisite for the event is not present, it just goes to the discard pile.

Message from USSR:
154 5/9/2020 6:44:00 PM Turn 5 USSR Message You should not feel bad. I knew about Sadat Expels Soviets. I have read the evnets of all the Mid War cards. I knew there was a high chance you were going to play Sadat. But I added an influence there to reestablish control in case, you didn't have it and were just bluffing like you did. Because if I did not add the influence I would lose domination if you played the ME Scoring card instead. 1 IP was worth the insurance to mitigate losing Domination IMO.

Egypt may be unique in that it has two opposite plahying cards (Nassar and Sadat) but of course there's Romanian Abdication, Muslim Revolution etc.

140 5/7/2020 5:09:00 PM Turn 4 US Message Yeah I'd agree with that: Space is an ops play. One of the reason's I needed a 3-ops card last turn since I was under the effect of Red Scare and needed a 2-ops card for Space.
139 5/7/2020 5:04:00 PM Turn 4 USSR Message On TwilightStrategy.com they also said you could choose to send the card to the Space Race if you wanted to. That would not have occurred to me though.
138 5/7/2020 4:46:00 PM Turn 4 US Message One of the advantages of the play (if keeping your card and not returning it) is to deprive you of options for your last two rounds of course.
137 5/7/2020 4:44:00 PM Turn 4 US Message That is correct. I can either:
1) Play your card (for Ops and/or event); or
2) Return your card and spend 2 ops.

I'll be able to respond later with what I'm doing.
