Im pretty sure I understand this correctly, but would like to double-check with folks who better know what they're doing.

Does "British homeland objective area" refer to a British objective (I.e., a starred city in the U.S.) or an objective area on the British side (I.e., a starred city in Canada)?

Unfortunately, this is the only card that does not have additional expanded verbiage in the rulebook.

TIA!

Thanks. That was my interpretation as well. But I played against someone last night who used it to place troops in American territory - a mustering area, nonetheless!

I let it go because I began to doubt myself about the interpretation. In the long run, it didn't matter - we Yanks won anyway.

Good for you. Hard to beat anyone with that level of verbal gymnastics. Does he/she play with a "if the rules don't say I can't, then I can" mindset too?

Na, he's a good guy - it was an honest misinterpretation. I mentioned it to him today, and he remarked that he thought the way he played it seemed overpowered as an action.

When I retired, I decided to explore the Seven Deadly Sins. Perhaps I shouldn't have started with Sloth. It's been four years and that's as far as I've gotten.

Cool! Thanks to the game, and the documentary I watched for background, I now know who she is. She made chocolates, right?

Actually, public radio had some interesting stuff on this week about the war. As part of that, they played a Gordon Lightfoot-esque ballade about her. Not too surprisingly, I've never heard it here in the U.S.
