There is one discard pile for Casualties & used up modifier cards.
There are 2 phases in a turn:
1. Draw Phase
2. Conflict Phase
Draw to fill hand to 10 cards.
If a players draw pile runs out, he shuffles his reserve pile and
his reserve pile becomes his new draw pile.
If a player drew no unit cards, a mulligan, he reveals his
hand, discards it, and draws again.
If a player gets 3 mulligans in a row, he loses the game.
Players put their Unit cards face up on the table.
Modifier cards remain in the player's hands.
After each player has had a look, the cards are put
back into the player's hands.
Conflict proceeds in a series of rounds:
Each player plays one Unit card face down.
The unit cards are revealed.
At this time either player may play a Dummy card.
If a dummy is used both unit cards go to their owners reserve piles.
If a dummy is not used players may play Modifier cards face down.
The modifier cards are revealed.
The unit with the highest modified Force point total wins.
The Winner keeps his unit card, putting it into his reserve pile.

to the common casualty (discard) pile.
The Rounds are repeated until one player has no unit cards left.
