Awesome work, Bart.

A great help for us Memoir folks with a little fellow that doesn't always allow dad to play a full game. PBEM is a good thing.

Wow, that sounds like a lot of work!

Let's hope the scenarios now match the books. I think we were 0/3 or 0/4 with the ladder scenarios I played being correct. (Jungle missing here, artillery missing there, etc.)

How can this be done in game?

When you drag a compendium card on the board you can flip it.

I've pre-flipped cards in a few scenarios, forgetting that it sets the owner to me, so they probably can't be unflipped, oops.
