Turn 4 notes:

Segment 0:
Veteran draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 2 delay, -2 endurance

Segment 2:
Yankee draws 1 Delay card for Sprint: 0 delay
NCO loses his aim on hex G-J16: executed foot action other than Turn

Segment 4:
Texas aims at G-I15: closest hex to intended target
El Jefe draws 2 Delay cards for Slope hexside: 0 delay
DROP: 1 delay (see teaching moment below)

Segment 5:
El Jefe Head Out cancelled: delay (See second note below)
NCO executes Jab with no effect: no LOS to target

End of turn:
Veteran delay reduced from 5 to 2
Veteran endurance reduced from 13 to 11
El Jefe delay reduced from 2 to 1

Teaching moment: The card draws for El Jefe going up the hill are done in this order:
First card for Slope Hexside, this caused a DROP penalty. The next 3 cards resolve
the DROP. Finally the second card for the Slope hexside. In pbm and pbem, all penalties
are resolved fully the moment they happen. In the case of multiple penalties, such as
being shot, the penalties are resolved fully in the order they are listed on the Impact
Table. In this case, since all cards drawn were Delay cards, it really doesn't matter.
But there are situations when card draw order can make a difference. This was the easiest
way we came up with to make sure both players resolved penalties the same way in pbm.

Note: El Jefe played 5 time segments when he started with 1 delay. This is perfectly legal
and I will never question a turn like that. The extra actions are simply cancelled.

Also note:
I noted aim on the board because the Aim Markers in the original Vassal module
are generic. Since the new version shows the character number on the Aim Marker, I will
no longer note aim in the "End of Turn" section.

We are slammed at work so in all likelihood all 3 turns next week will be about 2 hours
late. The deadlines will not change.

Next deadline: turn 5 due Monday, October 25 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 6 notes:

El Jefe must really be winded (NTR 1)

Segment 0:
Veteran draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 1 delay, -1 endurance

Segment 1:
Yankee aim: 0 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 0

Segment 2:
Lightning aim: 0 Aim Makers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 0

Segment 5:
Lightning aim: 0 Aim Makers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 0/Range: 4 hexes, +0.5 elevation = 4
Veteran gets 2 delay for Back Up while Down

End of turn:
Veteran delay reduced from 4 to 2
Veteran endurance reduced from 10 to 9
Lightning delay reduced from 1 to 0

Note 1: It is not possible to score a hit with 0 aim. The card is still drawn in case
of a Misfire and subsequent gun damage.

Note 2
: When playing a Defense (such as Duck) you must still name a target. I gave Yankee
a mulligan on this one since there was only one logical target.

action on segment 3.

Turn 9 notes:

El Jefe is eerily silent (NTR #2)

Segment 0:
Veteran draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 2 delay, -2 endurance

Segment 3:
Yankee loses his aim on hex G-G14: executed foot action other than Turn

Segment 5:
Lightning aim: 4 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 4/Range: 3 hexes, /4 W44 = 0
NCO takes a BODY hit:
STUN4: 5 delay, -5 endurance
DROP: 1 delay
STAGGER: no effect (already Down)
SERIOUS2: will draw 2 Fatigue cards at the beginning of each turn

Drifter aim: 4 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +2 2H skill = 6/Range: 16 hexes, /4 W44 = 4
Misfire: Gun Jams!, gun now is unloaded and can't be fired until completely reloaded

NCO aim: 2 Aim Markers, +1 card 7, +0 1H skill = 3
Lightning takes a BODY hit:
STUN2: 3 delay, -3 endurance
SERIOUS1: will draw 1 Fatigue card at the beginning of each turn

Veteran Draw&Cock cancelled: delay

End of turn:
Veteran delay reduced from 3 to 1
Veteran endurance reduced from 7 to 5
Lightning delay reduced from 3 to 1
Lightning endurance reduced from 18 to 15
NCO delay reduced from 6 to 3
NCO endurance reduced from 20 to 15

Note 1: NCO's STAGGER result is no effect as he was already Down due to a result
card drawn to resolve the STUN4. While penalties go into effect at the end of the
segment, in pbm all penalties are resolved completely at the instant they are
triggered.

Note 2: Texas can continue to aim at hes G-F14 even though he already has 8 points
on it. It neither gains nor loses him anything.

Note 3:
There is nothing in the rules to suggest that NCO would lose his Head counter.
Had he STAGGERED he probably would have.

Note 4
: There are 41 cards still remaining in the deck, 2 of which are Malfunctions.
When the last Malfunction is drawn, the deck will be immediately reshuffled.

Turn 12 notes:

Segment 0:
Veteran draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 0 delay, -0 endurance
Lightning draws 1 Fatigue card for SERIOUS1: 0 delay, -0 endurance
NCO draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 1 delay, -1 endurance

Segment 1:
Yankee loses his aim on Texas: no longer in Aim Zone

Segment 2:
Yankee Aim cancelled: see note below

Segment 3:
Lightning aim: 4 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 4/Range: 3 hexes, /4 W44 = 0
NCO takes a VITAL hit: Killed

El Jefe loses his Head counter: executed foot action other than Turn

Segment 5:
Texas aim: 0 Aim Markers, +1 card 7, +1 1H skill = 2
Yankee takes a GUN hit:
STUN4: 8 delay, -8 endurance
LOSE AIM: lose aim on hex G-I15
GUN HAND: C45 drops in hex, fires harmlessly
SERIOUS1: will draw 1 Fatigue card at the beginning of each turn
GUN ARM4: will subtract 4 from aim for any shot using GH or BH

End of turn:
Veteran delay reduced from 2 to 1
Veteran first turn with more delay than endurance
Yankee delay reduced from 8 to 4
Yankee endurance reduced from 20 to 12

Teaching moment: Execution of an action is determined at the time the card is revealed. The first execution listed for Yankee's aim was to aim at Texas. At the time the card was revealed Texas was a valid target. However, by time the action was executed Texas had left his Aim Zone. This is another situation where "AOE" would have helped. As Texas is a lower character than Yankee, he revealed his Run and announced he would be moving out of Yankee's Aim Zone before Yankee's aim action was revealed.
