Are the Resupply cards counted as one of the 3 Wehrmacht cards drawn each turn? Or are they to be pop-ups that you deal with then go on to draw 3 cards?

Hmmm. I could swear I saw someplace on the site a reference from the designer about being able to see the Resupply card coming, so that you had a turn to prepare. Unfortunately, I can't find it, which is why I posed the question. The card count, by 3's, doesn't support my idea. However, there's nothing to prevent counting the W cards so you know exactly when Resupply is coming this turn. And nothing says it's Not a W card.

The resupply cards will always be on top of the deck (when you've played through a certain number of turns). If you're not seeing this, you're setting up your deck incorrectly.

Once again, I must be missing something.
You draw 3 Wehrmacht (W) cards a turn. After a count of W cards divisible by 3, the resupply card should be showing.
That works for deck 1, which has 9 cards. 1st resupply is on top of deck 2.

But deck 2 only has 17 cards, as does deck 3. The resupply card shows up as the 3rd one to be drawn in a W turn instead of being revealed by the 3rd card drawn at the end of decks 2 and 3.

I'm not missing any cards; have arranged them in numerical order. Note that card #44 is in deck 1, and #8 is removed for beginners.

Am I doing something wrong?

Right, and a resupply makes 18!

So, after the last 3 cards of deck 1, the next card showing will be a resupply. You draw that, then 2 cards from deck 2. You're now at 15 in deck 2, so you go through 5 more turns, then get to the resupply beginning deck 3, etc.

Does that make sense?

Got it! Thought it was making it too easy on the W to just play 2 of their regular cards. Duh! on my part.
Thanks!

My favorite part of the game is how many different paths there are for players to try. I introduced it to my brother and cousin this past week. They used almost zero suppression - they went for a heavy "command"/sniper/forward observer strategy. Some folks love to concentrate on attacking, while others use the improved action economy of suppression.

I personally LOVE the mortar, but you better make sure you have a medkit handy!
