Hello Everyone,

I want to play a short scenario (period cards) game over Vassal and Dropbox involving the following variants:
“Political Rhythm” In the Short 1965-1967 scenario (only), shuffle the 3 Coup cards among the bottom 4 Event cards of each 8-card pile.

“High Winds” (recommended for tournament play) During Monsoon Season (2.3.9), Air Lift (4.2.2) may move US pieces only (no ARVN). Other restrictions remain.

“Sortie Limit” An Air Strike Special Activity may either remove pieces or Degrade the Trail, not both. Air Strike may remove no more than 3 pieces per space (still 6 pieces total).
-- If "Sortie Limit" is in use, the shaded #5 Wild Weasels effect becomes: Until Coup, Air Strike may remove up to 2 pieces (not up to 6).

The reason for this is that I want to try something new for the FitL tournament for PrezCon this year. ( Specifically, I'm trying to bump up the NVA with Sortie Limit. Because I notice that it is really difficult for them to gain any ground normally in a short scenario without being blasted away. If anyone has any thoughts about this, I'm all ears.

If anyone would like to help me play a game with these variants, feel free to send me a geek mail or comment. We do have a time limit though. Since, PrezCon starts on February 20th.

Thank you and happy gaming!
