If a country needs to be Tested but it already has a Governance marker, it does not get tested again.
If a faction uses an opponent’s card, the associated Event has to be played and cannot be ignored
A Besieged Regime marker can only be added by card Event or by attempting and failing a Major Jihad at Poor Governance. It can be present if a country is at Fair Governance, but it is removed by Good Governance.
Reserves not used are lost at the end of every turn.
Reserves cannot be used for Reassessment by the US.
War of Ideas can only be executed in Muslim Countries that are Neutral or Allied. It can be executed in non-Muslim countries to change Posture.
When a War of Ideas is executed in a Muslim country that is Neutral, first the marker is moved to Ally (at the same Governance), then Governance can be improved with successive WoI actions.
The US can only Deploy in Allied countries unless it Deploys for a Regime Change, which can only be done in IR countries.
Withdraw can only be performed if Posture is Soft and it requires a 3-value card. (only removing Troops from a Regime Change country is considered Withdrawing, moving/removing in any other case is considered Deploy)
When performing a Regime Change, 6 Troops have to be Deployed in the RC country, already-present Troops don’t count.
A Minor Jihad reduces Governance but does not change Alignment.
A Major Jihad can be attempted only at Poor Governance but ignores Alignment (a Poor Ally country can be turned into an Adversary IR with a singe Major Jihad).
A Plot can only be same level or less than the Operation Value of the card used to play it (a card with an OV of 2 can place either level 1 or 2 Plots).
Plots are resolved one at a time and the consequences of one can affect the next, but the 1-3 dice rolls for every single Plot (depending on Plot value) happen at the same time (Governance can be changed between Plots but not between rolls for the same Plot).
A Cadre is only removed if a cell is placed in that country from the Funding Track, or by the US if it Disrupts in a country where the Cadre is present.
Musharraf can change an IR to Poor Ally.
Oil Price Spike can be stacked and it can cause an immediate victory.
