We're trying a game out with the Chinese Civil War Variant, and we came up with a situation that I wasn't sure exactly how to handle rules wise.
USSR has not placed the 3 points on the Chinese Civil War space, and the USSR player plays the Formosan Resolution card for its ops points. Since the US cannot play the event yet per the Chinese Civil War Variant rules, does the event not happen, and the card gets placed back in the discard pile?
The event doesn't happen. It goes to the discard pile.
