Module Instructions

GMT Games 2013; Joel Toppen Design

Version 1.02 update: Added missing "Headman" card and "IPs" marker for 2-player play.

You will need to use VASSAL Engine version 3.2.8 or higher to use this module. (http://www.vassalengine.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5579).

Creating the deck:

Scenarios 14.1, 14.2, and 14.6: Open the Deck Preparation Window. Click the "Create Deck" button.

Scenario 14.3: Drag the Pueblo Revolt, Franciscan Faction Ascendant, Viceroy De Galvez, and Settlers Colonize NM Historical cards from the top of their draw pile, onto the discard deck containing the Headman card (top right corner of the window). Drag the Mexican Independence Transitional Event from the top of its deck, onto the main map. Click the "Create Deck" button.

Scenario 14.4: Drag the Pueblo Revolt, Franciscan Faction Ascendant, Viceroy De Galvez, Settlers Colonize NM, Santa Fe Massacre, Dineanaii, When the Land is Sick, and Narbona's War Historical cards from the top of their draw pile, onto the discard deck containing the Headman card (top right corner of the window). Drag the Mexican Independence Transitional Event from the top of its deck, onto the empty discard deck as well. Drag the Army of the West Transitional Event from the top of its deck, onto the main map. Click the "Create Deck" button.

Scenario 14.5: Not supported. Yet...

To Reconstitute Deck in Scenario 14.6: At the end of the period, open the "Deck" window and draw all remaining cards off the deck and return them to the top, left-most deck in the "Deck Preparation Window." Click "Create Deck" button.

To Randomly Remove Culture Card Sets: Open the "Culture Cards" window. If you wish to protect a set from removal, simply drag all three of its cards to the map temporarily. Next, click on the "Randomize" button. All Level 1 cards will go into a deck. Draw the top three cards from this deck (each draw will be random). Those are the three sets you will remove from play. To remove, simply return the Level 1 card to the top of its set in the Culture Cards window, then right-click on that stack and choose to Remove From Play.
