9 9/6/2020 11:48:00 PM Turn 3 US Message I just noticed rule 9.5 - the China card cannot be played as a Headline event.

I think the easiest way to fix this is pretend "We Will Bury You" was your Headline event, and the China card was your Round 1 card play. That should work fine.

To make ACTS do this however, I think you need to click on "Undo Card Play" - and then click on "We Will Bury You" to put it back in your hand - then play it as a Headline event.

It's not a big deal, but otherwise it is possible my Headline event card won't get "played" as it is waiting for you to play the Headline event (then ACTS automatically plays both of them).

Anyway - I'll play my round 1 card!
8 9/6/2020 6:56:00 PM Turn 3 USSR Message Ok - I'm good. I dumped 4 cards and drew 4 replacements.

I just noticed rule 9.5 - the China card cannot be played as a Headline event.

You can choose another card for the headline event, and then you get the first action, so you could simply play the China card as your first round card, or choose another card. If you click on the "Undo Card Play" link I think it will give you the option of putting the China card back in your hand.

Sorry this was a confusing hand - lots going on!

Message from US:
I'll play this card for Ops, and will use it to place IP all in Asia. That means this card is worth +1 Ops so that gives me 5 total.

I'll place 1 IP in South Korea (which costs 2 Ops since S.Korea is US controlled)

I'll place 3 more IP in South Korea (which now only costs 1 Ops each since after the first IP was placed South Korea is no longer USA controlled).

In the end, the final status of South Korea is (3/4)

This card will appear in your deck next turn - so you'll have an extra card.
