25 3/30/2021 8:39:00 PM Turn 1 US Message OK, I'm done with this game. I have two cards left and one is the Asia Scoring card. So two of my six cards were forced plays. (I should have been able to hold one.) Throw in your scoring card and I was behind before making a single play. And I'll lose Mil Ops points as well. There's no way I could have covered all three scoring areas with only four plays.

Let's figure out what we want to play next. I'm open to suggestions.
