1. You will need to use VASSAL Engine version 3.2.8 or higher to use this module.

2. A right-click on Population boxes (Cities and Provinces) and Econ boxes (on ECs) produces a menu to expedite placement of game pieces.

3. To create the deck, open the Deck Preparation Window by pressing the button on the toolbar. Inside this window, a single click of the "Create Deck" button will generate the deck which will appear on the map on the left side of the main map screen.

4. In accordance with GMT's wishes, we will not be including the Solitaire game charts in the module. Thank you for understanding!

5. The module automatically calculates Total Support and Opposition + Bases. To adjust Support/Opposition, right-click on the Support/Opposition/Neutral button in each city and province space. As Support/Opposition is adjusted, the module will shift the Support and Op+Bases markers on the map automatically. As you can see, there are shortcut keyboard commands that can be used on the Support/Opposition/Neutral buttons (Ctrl-[ and Ctrl-]).

6. Control of spaces is managed dynamically as you move pieces the module will automatically calculate control. During Redeployment, it may be useful to mark GOVT controlled spaces with pawns before you start moving pieces so you can remember what spaces were GOVT-controlled at the start of the phase.

7. To draw cards from the deck press the "Draw Card" button on the toolbar. Pressing this button will shift the card from the "Upcoming" slot to the "Current" slot on in the card play area on the left side of the main map window. Pressing the "End Card Play" button will discard the current card as well as rearrange the eligibility cylinders.
