Place the Bridge Over the River Kwai marker near this location as a reminder. Remove from play if used as an event.

BTW - I like that move. CombFleet is Japan's strongest HQ before the Yamamoto is killed card comes out.

322 10/6/2020 2:03:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Hi JB,

The correct order I believe is to roll for Special Reaction for each potential Battle Hex first.

Once this is done and all of the Battle Hexes have been identified, a single intelligence roll is made.

Cheers!
