29 3/24/2021 6:26:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Reading the clarifications doc further, I would agree with you that you don't need to tell me :-)
28 3/24/2021 6:25:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message Well, I'm not sure you wouldn't tell me in face to face play, as I might see you discard the extra 3-OPs if you don't succeed after initial discards. But then again, maybe not:

If the Allied player does not draw cards 2 or 24 in his initial
hand, he may discard all or all but one of the cards in his hand
and refill has hand. If he has still not drawn either card, he may
discard any 3 OPs or better card and draw card 24 in its place.
(It is suggested that players simply note this, rather than searching
through the deck.)

In either case, it doesn't matter much if I know or not, so we'll stick with the fog of war here.
27 3/23/2021 10:23:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message To you for first play. (Thanks for the reminder about the doc. If I understand correctly, I don't inform you whether I need the mulligan or not.)

19 3/23/2021 8:25:00 AM June 1941 Axis Message I will only discard one card - will pause for you to discard and take possible mulligan (for SU reinforcement card) before my first play. Remember to look to the doc I sent you for our processes when playing on ACTS, particularly for the mulligan.

5 3/19/2021 1:55:00 PM June 1941 Allied Message Hi Fred! Sorry I've been out of the loop on this. Work ended up being busier than anticipated, but I got past the main deadline I was working toward, so I'm looking forward to a good game!

Heads up that I'll be offline longer than usual not this weekend but the next two for Passover, but I'm sure we'll otherwise be able to keep up a mutually agreeable pace.
