If playing Khe Sanh (card 37) will not remove any US troops (because every space with NVA has no US troops), but the event would cause the US to be ineligible through the next card, will VC/NVA bot play the event?

It seems literally yes (since "something happens" as per 8.1, namely the US loses a turn, even though no troops are affected), but I just want to verify that the bot would really spend its own turn doing literally nothing except causing the US (who might also be a bot) to lose a turn.

(Today was my first play in a while, so my COIN brain circuits are rusty...)

There are special instructions for that card for NVA. What do they say? (I don't have my sheets with me here.)

But in principle, making US ineligible is an effect too so.

That if the US is already ineligible, they don't use the event.

So it seems to me. Just kind of weird from a "rational player" point of view that in a 4-player game, one player would spend their whole turn just to cost one other player a turn too.

The US will lose two turns, in a way. They go ineligible now and won't play on the next card either. But yeah, perhaps an amendment to the effect that the US is player and eligible would be better.

Yeah, it was like the USbot changing policy and withdrawing everything it can, and we're playing ARVN!
