ANCIENTS [O:rec.c] KEEPS OWN FLARES Gerald Katz

You have the power of Eon. You need not discard any wild flare that you play. You may instead keep it to use in another challenge. However, the following flares follow the immortal words of use once and discard : Aristocrat, Darwin, Demon, Disease, Doppelganger, Dragon, Fate, Filth, Immigrant, Insect, Magnet, Praw, Replicant, Serpent, Vacuum, Vampire, Void, Wabbit.

History: Eons ago, an alien power dominated the universe during an old Cosmic Encounter. After millennia of rule, they retired to the West End. Out of nostalgia for their history, they have returned to reconquer the universe only to find the universe once again at war. While the Ancient ones recognize some old foes, they are also met with new ones, and even though the rules of war have changed, their retention of the old ways will surely mean their ultimate victory.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: You may keep any one flare you play for use in another challenge unless it was zapped.

Super1: You may keep all non-challenge cards you play for use in another challenge.

AQUARIUS [O:GK] Everyone Is Happy Gerald Katz (Astrology)

You have the power of dawning. Whenever you are a main player, any token of any player that would be lost to the Warp, out of game, or another player's control instead return to one of its owner's bases. No player can lose cards except by normal play of a card or getting a new hand. A challenge is carried out as normal, but you and your opponent may try to make a normal deal first anytime before allies are invited. A deal ends the challenge. A failed deal simply means the challenge continues, but you have + or -5 to your challenge total.

Con: A failed deal ends the challenge if Aquarius is offensive player.



ARACHNID [M:Archi] TRAPS LOSING TOKENS Gerald Katz

You have the power of entrapment. As main player, whenever you win the challenge, all losing tokens are trapped on the base with you. They do not count as a base for their owners and do not have their owners' powers. Other players may not move them. However, each trapped token will add one to your challenge total when you are attacked on that base. If you lose the base or this power, trapped tokens go to the Warp.

History: The Archeologists are able to dig up the ruins of other civilizations to learn from them. However, they have also learned that many an alien are willing to pay for the various old relics that they find. Who are the Archeologists to deny others their quest for knowledge?

BEGGAR [O:GK:L] USES OTHER PLAYERS' LUCRE Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power to panhandle. You start off the game with no lucre and do not receive any during the game. However, when you are required or have an opportunity to spend lucre because of a card, moon, another person's power etc., you ask another player to pay for you, which he must. If no player has enough lucre, what ever you need the lucre for is free. If for some reason you receive lucre during the game, you must immediately spend it. Any left over is saved until you can buy something, which you must.

History: An alien battle over the Beggars world almost completely destroyed their planet. Left in utter destitution with no hope for an economy, the Beggars have no choice but to ask for handouts from others.

BERMUDA [B:rec.c] Tokens Temporarily Lost Gerald Katz

You have the power to disappear. When no tokens are off board because of this power in a challenge, after alliances have been established, you may move all tokens from the cone and set them off board. The challenge ends. The offensive player may make a second challenge if applicable. Then, for all future challenges, after alliances are committed, you may move all tokens from the cone to set off board, and all tokens previously set off board return to the cone on the same side of the cone as previously. The current destiny card determines if the cone is reversed or not. Current main players remain as such, but alliances may change due to token placements. It is permissible for the offensive player to have 0 tokens on the cone and/or a current main player be allied against or with himself. For your tokens on the cone, if they are on the opposing side than intended for this challenge, you may keep them there or return to your original side as you desire. The challenge continues. If you lose this power due to lack of home bases or power card, tokens off board from this power go to the warp.

History: The hyperspace cone has long been manipulated by aliens as a tool for their conquests. Little did they know that yet another alien race created it and now manipulate it for their own conquests.

Restriction: Do Not Use In Games With Delegator, Decoy, or Hydra.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Pro: The defensive player's tokens disappear as well and will reappear as defensive allies, even if you no longer have this card.

Con: Before Bermuda decides to make the tokens disappear, show him this card. His tokens on the cone cannot switch sides when they reappear, even if you don't have this card.



BUCK [M:rec.c] Tokens Come Back Later Gerald Katz

You have the power of the future. Whenever you lose tokens to the Warp, instead, set them aside and out of play. Write down the number of tokens you lost, from where you lost them, and the order in which you lost them compared to later tokens you may lose. For all such tokens, whenever a special destiny or comet is flipped in the destiny pile including Power Rewop or Power Outage, return those tokens that were gone the longest to exactly where they were before they had to go to the Warp. If they return to the cone, they effect the challenge for the appropriate side they are on. You may still ally normally on either side. If they were offensive tokens, they become offensive allies unless you re the offensive player when they return. Tokens that would return to a moon occupied by another player return to your bases instead. However, if they return to an empty moon, that moon's effect takes place again. You can only be zapped at the time tokens would go off board, not upon returning. If for some reason you do not have your power, lost tokens go to the Warp as normal but returning tokens still appear where they were lost.

History: The Bucks have an uncanny ability to avoid the dreaded Warp. They lose their way. The only thing they can do is go home, not realizing that a long time has passed and are now in their future. They don't know what to expect upon their return. They might even hurt their descendants, but at least they ll be there to pick up the pieces and return home to a hero's welcome.

Super1: When a Special Destiny or Comet is flipped, you may return all your tokens.

Pro: You may return tokens out of play when your color is flipped in destiny.

Con: If Buck loses his power due to lack of home bases or power card, all of his tokens out of play due to his power go into the Warp.



BUREAUCRAT [M:rec.c] Enforces The Rules Gerald Katz

You have the power of red tape. Whenever another player breaks a rule he is not entitled to, you put any one of his tokens into the Warp. Some common illegal rule breaks are: not putting tokens into the cone before pointing it at planet to be challenged, defensive player asks for allies first, token retrieved from Warp is placed on the cone not a base, forgetting to return tokens to bases or discarding played cards, etc.

History: Bureaucrats always have a conniption fit whenever people don't follow the most simplest of procedures because it always leads to confusion and delay. Once everyone follows the Bureaucratic way, then there will be happiness, and it will be mandatory!

Con: You choose which option the Bush player gets.



CANARY [M:rec.c] Commits Tokens Later Gerald Katz

You have the power of timidity. Whenever you put tokens onto the cone, only put in one token. When challenge cards are revealed, evaluate challenge totals normally. You may then put up to three more tokens into the cone and reevaluate challenge totals. You need not put in the extra three tokens at once. You may put in one and wait to see if anyone is going to play a Flare, for example. When all players have declared they will not play any more cards, you may put into the cone any of the extra tokens you have left. At this point, no other player may play any cards unless it is to stop you from using this power until the challenge is concluded.

Con: Canary must announce how many tokens he will risk. When Challenge Cards are revealed, either he enters the cone with that number or none at all.



CARTEL [B:GK] Changes Lucre Rules Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power of monopoly. If the game does not use Lucre you receive Lucre and can spend it normally anyway. If the game does use Lucre, while you go by Mayfair rules normally, all other players go by Eon rules. That is, they start the game with 4 Lucre and only receive 1 Lucre at the start of their turn. They only have Eon rules Lucre purchase options. Their Lucre will add to their challenges unless you are a main player, in which case the Lucre is not added. For the other players, all Lucre prices for powers, cards, or Moons are 1 Lucre. You go by the normal Mayfair price. If you lose your power other players multiply their Lucre by 3. When you get your power back, they divide their Lucre by 3. If a player can use your power he does the same with his Lucre.

You then defend all tokens normally. Players whose tokens you defend may not ally voluntarily, except Parasite as per his power. However, their tokens retain any special characteristics. Ex: Macron tokens are still worth 4. If you lose the challenge, all defensive tokens go to the Warp. If you win, owner's of other tokens do not receive any rewards. If you fail to deal, you lose 3 of your own tokens.

History: The Chameleons, at the bottom of the food chain, developed the ability to hide in natural surroundings for survival.

CLINTON [O:GK] GAINS FROM DISTRACTIONS Gerald Katz (Presidential Encounter)

You have the power to wag the dog. During game play, if another player takes an interest in something that has nothing to do with the game, you take the top Flare from the unused Flare deck for your hand. If it is a �bad� Flare discard it and draw again. If the game is �put on hold� because of another player, to be resumed at a later time, gain a base anywhere. If players just want to end the game or the game ends up not being finished after being �put on hold�, you win the game, despite Schizoid. Eating snacks currently at the game table is considered part of the game. Stopping the game to ask a non-playing person a rules question does not get you a base.

History: The Clintons are a lying, conniving race who abuse their power for personal gain. With droopy eyes and pouted lips, their charismatic charms divert the attentions of their enemies. As others are concerned by �more important matters�, the Clintons enrich themselves and get away with it.

CLOWN [M:rec.c] Destiny Determines Offensive Player Gerald Katz

You have the power to fool. Instead of the destiny pile determining the defensive system, it determines the offensive player who attacks the player whose turn it is in his own system. Clown does not come into play on wild cone or special destiny cards. On your turn, the destiny pile determines the defensive system as normal.

History: Laughter is the best medicine, and the Clowns excel at it. Adept at the practical joke, the Clowns easily turn the tables on everyone. As everyone laughs at the Clowns antics, some begin to wonder why they feel they just got hit in the face with a pie.

Wild1: After agreeing to a deal, you need not fulfill your part of the bargain. You do not lose tokens.

Pro: Your power works for Wild Cone and Special Destiny Cards. Whomever would normally be determined the defensive player becomes the offensive player as per your power.

Con: The destiny pile determines the defensive system as normal. However, if Clown is to be the defensive player, he becomes the offensive player instead as per his power.



CONSERVATIVE [O:rec.c] Other Players Have No Choice Gerald Katz

You have the power of choice. When other players play an Edict or Wild Flare which requires a choice of target or effect, you make the decision unless it is to stop you from using this power.

History: The Conservatives do not like change. When new ideas develop, they adapt as they can but prefer to maintain the status quo as possible. They let individuals do as they please, but when they infringe upon others, the Conservatives step in to put things right.

Restriction: Do Not Use With It or Paladin

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

CONTINUUM [M:rec.c] Settles Game Play Disputes Gerald Katz

Whenever there is a disagreement among the players concerning game play, even if you re involved, you make the final decision for the solution. If zapped, all players must vote but you still break ties. This power is not effected by the number of home bases a player has.

DARWIN [O:rec.c] Uses Flares As Powers Gerald Katz

Instead, when you play a Wild Flare, you would get to use the power that is the name of the Flare. The Flare gets discarded as normal. Flare Zaps have no effect when you play a Flare in this way. While you still must abide by any time constraints of the various powers, you need not show you have a particular Flare until you actually use it. If there is a lien on your hand, you may still play a Flare Power but only if the power is actually used. Use of this power is allowed when opposing Cripple. Under Sanity, if you decide to use this power, you may play any number of Flare Powers you want. Under Insanity, you must as possible use at least one Flare power but you need not play all of them nor use them as regular Flares. You are permitted to use a Wild Flare normally instead of using the power. Should you get a Flare whose power can't be used because of ambiguity, not allowed because of another power in the game, or has a game artifact, you may exchange it with a random Flare drawn from the unused Flare deck.

History: The Darwins believe that life forms develop from inferior predecessors. To prove their theory, they have perfected the science of advancing the evolutionary stages of alien DNA.

Conclude the challenge normally. Any card, power, moon, or rule that effects challenge cards effect the dice as well. If necessary, players may write down dice rolls for future use instead of rolling where applicable. You need not get a new hand as main player when out of challenge cards.

History: The Dice have no patience to wait for defense contractors to build their weapons. Instead, the Dice mastered the theory of numerological mechanics to do the work for them.

No deal attempt is made. Your opponent does not collect consolation cards. As an ally, if the main players tie in challenge totals, your side wins the challenge. If both main players reveal Compromise Cards, they attempt to deal as normal, but you get the base or defensive ally rewards as appropriate as if your side won the challenge. When a vote is taken among players and there is a tie, your side wins. If more than one player wins the game for any reason and you are among them, you win the game alone, superseding everything else.

History: When quagmires develop and people just cannot decide, the Dubyas decide for them. When there is doubt and accusations of usurpation, the Dubyas settle the matter. Such situations happen all too often. The Dubyas' rise to power means capital punishment to all others.

ELF [O:rec.c] Evades Challenges Gerald Katz

You have the power to evade. As defensive player, after the cone is pointed you may declare that you will evade the challenge if you have at least one token on the defended planet or moon. The offensive player flips the destiny pile again to determine a new defensive player and repoint the cone. However, you must then put one of your tokens from the attacked planet or moon into the warp.

GALACTICA [M:rec.c] Tries To Get Back Home Bases Gerald Katz

You have the power to go home. At game set up, take 5 moons and place them over any 5 bases in other players home system and place 4 tokens on each. These are not moons. They are treated as bases in every way. Therefore, you are sharing the bases with other players. These bases are considered your home bases in terms of collecting Lucre, being able to use your power, and any card that specifies home bases. As offensive player, if you draw your system color, proceed as any other player normally would when drawing your own color. Upon drawing another player's color, if you have a home base there but had lost it, you may challenge the defensive player there to get it back or instead, challenge him on a planet in his system as in a regular challenge. When another player draws his own color in destiny and you have a home base there, he may attack you as normal. If he draws your system color, again he attacks you as normal. However, if you win the challenge, you may establish a base on any planet in your home color system. You have two ways of winning the game. Either gain 5 foreign bases where your original home bases do not count, subject to Schizoid, or have all 5 of your home color system bases, not subject to Schizoid. You have use of your power by having at least 3 home bases of either your originals and/or home color system. If the Wild Void Flare is used on a planet in your home color system, you may still win the game by having bases on the other four planets. You cannot be reincarnated.

History: Eons ago, the Galacticas home world was destroyed, forcing them to live among others in the cosmos. However, their legends tell of a lost tribe who left for the stars long before then.

GATES [M:GK:L] EMPOWERS POWERS Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power of ownership. In order for another player to use his power, he must pay you 2 Lucre. Once paid, he can use his power freely for the rest of the challenge. In multi-power games, it only costs 1 Lucre per extra power. A player pays when he would normally have used his power. A player who does not pay cannot use his power, even if mandatory. If Terrorist does not pay when a bomb goes off, it fizzles. Players whose power requires another player have use of his power no longer need that requirement if they pay you.

GATHERER [O:rec.c] CYCLES AND GATHERS CARDS Gerald Katz

You have the power to cycle. At the end of your turn, you may declare a type of non-Challenge Card to be cycled out of play. No player may use such cards until the end of your next turn when it is cycled in. You may then choose a different non-Challenge Card. You may not repeat a type of card until you go through the entire list, in any order. The type of cards are: Reinforcements, Edicts, Flares, and Kickers. In addition, in between turns you may trade cards from your hand with other players. You announce what you have and what you want. You can be as general or specific as you want. Some examples: "I will trade an Edict for a Flare."; "I will trade an Attack Card above 15 for a Wild Flare with a phase 8 effect."; "I will trade a Kicker x3 for the Attack 40." Any other player may accept the trade. A player may make a counter offer but may not initiate any offers.

If you lose the challenge, your opponent and his allies get a base anywhere in your system, and all your tokens are released from the Warp. Return them to bases.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: When your color comes up in the destiny pile, you may have the offensive player attack your Warp tokens. If you win, release them from the Warp. If you lose, your opponent gets a base in your system.

HUMAN [M:rec.c] NO ALLIES OR DEALS Gerald Katz

You have the power of inferiority. Because aliens look down upon you, the following happens: You may not be asked to ally. As main player, neither you nor your opponent may ask for allies. Your opponent cannot collect consolation cards from you except per Ethic's power. You cannot make deals with other players unless it is by a power, card, or moon. Discard all Compromise Cards that you receive.

History: After millennia of warfare, Humanity developed a world government and jump started their space program to boldly go where no man has gone before. Their lack of any nifty abilities bring scorn and laughter from the more advanced alien races. Having to explore space alone, the clever Humans will show who is the true master race.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may not use your powers. Do not discard this flare. It must be taken out of your hand by some other means.

Con: Human cannot discard Compromise Cards. He can play them normally, however.



HYDRA [M:rec.c] Has Two Challenges In One Gerald Katz

You have the power of all-out attack. On your turn, you have both of your challenges at the same time. Therefore, with the exception of collecting Lucre, each challenge phase is duplicated and happens at the same time. For your alliance invitations, you need not invite the same players for each challenge nor are players who do ally obligated to ally with you on both challenges or even with the same number of tokens. If there are two different defenders, either may be asked to ally on the other challenge on either side. If the defender is the same for both challenges, he need not invite the same players for each challenge nor are players who do ally obligated to ally with him on both challenges or even with the same number of tokens. If the defender is the same for both challenges and has only one Challenge Card, he must get a new hand as if out of Challenge Cards. All cards played by other players can only affect one of the challenges of their choice. All cards you play may affect one or both of the challenges at your discretion. Therefore, you are permitted to play only one Challenge Card and need not get a new hand if you only have one. If another player's power specifically mentions it can only be used once per challenge or must be invoked, it can only affect one of the challenges. If you have another power that can be used only once per challenge or must be invoked, you may have it affect one or both challenges at your discretion.

History: The multi-headed Hydras are able to battle more than one opponent at a time. While others must split their resources, the Hydras' greater efficiency assures them victory.

HYPOCHONDRIAC [O:rec.c] Pretends To Be Defensive Player Gerald Katz

You have the power of false positive. When not involved in the challenge at all for a planetary base, you may choose any base you have where you have tokens. Play an Attack Card when the main players play Challenge Cards. When they are revealed, if the offensive player reveals an Attack Card, compute your challenge total as if defending your base. If you would have defeated the offensive player, gain a base on the challenged planet. If you would have lost against the offensive player, lose to the Warp a number of tokens equal to the number of tokens on your base you have chosen, selected from among your bases. The main players conclude their challenge as normal. You may play cards and use other powers. Calculate results as if they took place, but they won't really take place. For example, you could Cosmic Zap Virus if he's offensive player for this separate challenge, but he still has his power against the real defensive player and Wild Parasite could not be played against him. Any powers and cards the offensive side used for the real challenge count against you for calculating totals but also likewise won't really take effect. If the real defensive side counters something on the offensive side, the effect is not countered for this separate challenge. Cards you do play are discarded. You get a new hand as normal only when you are a real main player.

History: Millennia ago a plague devastated the Hypochondriac home world. Though a cure was easily discovered, they are ever on the look out for hidden dangers. Now whenever others are in trouble, the Hypochondriacs feel they are suffering the same fate. Finding their own "cure" for that fate will allow them to sanitize the universe.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: When another player takes consolation, you may give that player the same number of cards of your choice from your hand, up to what you have.

Super1: If you lose the separate challenge, you do not lose tokens.

Pro: Cards and other powers you play in the separate challenge really affect the offensive side, thus affecting the real challenge.

Con: As offensive player not against Hypochondriac, show this card to Hypochondriac before he decides to have his separate challenge. If he takes it and loses, he instead loses the base he chose, tokens going to the Warp.



ILLUMINATI [O:rec.c] Player Cheats Gerald Katz

You have the power to cheat. You may misannounce numbers of Lucre, cards, tokens, or challenge totals to an error of +/- 100%. Catching you in the act on challenge totals means any time before other players move tokens in response to your misannounced total. You may lie about the contents of your hand - allowing you to play or not play, reveal or not reveal, a certain card or type of card (e.g. Plague, Visionary). Catching you requires knowledge that you hold or don't hold certain cards. In multi-power games, you may forget to use a mandatory power or that you've invoked a power (e.g. Loser, Calculator), or that you've used a 'use only once per challenge' power (e.g. Sniveler). Another player can only accuse you of cheating at the moment he catches you. You must answer truthfully when accused. If you cheated, your accuser places two of your tokens from any one base into the Warp. The cheat is undone. If you did not cheat, you place all tokens from one of his bases into the Warp. If a cheat is discovered after the fact, there is no penalty. You are also permitted to speak any "table talk" normally prohibited as well as show cards from your hand, regardless of the previous cheat abilities.

History: Ahem. Are you sure you are feeling all right? You mustn't be so paranoid. There is no Illuminati. It is a figment of your imagination. Please come this way. Ignore the men in the white coats. This is fnord your own good. Trust me.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may look through any one game artifact, including what another player has written.

Super1: You may take any cards, Lucre, and/or your tokens from anywhere to places where you have tokens at any time, even when not normally permitted. Rules of accusation apply. You only discard this card if legitimately caught.

Pro: You are permitted to cheat in any way possible. You are not penalized if caught after the fact.

Con: Illuminati cannot speak forbidden "table talk" nor show cards from his hand.



KENNEDY [O:GK] PLAYS SECRET CHALLENGE CARD Gerald Katz (Presidential Encounter)

You have the power of grassy knoll. As main player or ally, you may play an Attack Card face down in addition to the normal Challenge Card played by the main player on your side of the challenge when Challenge Cards are played. When Challenge Cards are revealed, you keep this Attack Card hidden. Challenge totals are calculated but you also determine challenge totals for the hidden Attack Card, separate from your side's Challenge Card. If this second challenge total would enable your side to win the challenge if the first challenge total results in a loss, you announce as such and win the challenge. You do not mention by how much you win the challenge. Opposing players may play cards to try to regain the win. You must be honest on who wins the challenge despite any restrictions of speech (no penalty) or legal cheat ability. The second Attack Card is subject to powers and cards for determining the challenge total and is discarded normally after the challenge is resolved.

History: Many battles are won and lost by the actions of a lone soldier. However, when the Kennedies are involved, theorists insist the lone gunman had help. The Kennedies deny any hidden assassins, but there's no questioning the power they accumulate.

Timing:
Phase 7 - Play cards

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: Take a randomly chosen power from the unused powers but keep it hidden. At any time during the game you may reveal the power and use it. It is then discarded. This Flare can only be zapped as it is played.

Pro: As main player, keep your original Challenge Card hidden if it is an Attack Card. Whether you played a second Attack Card or not, it follows your power.

Con: Kennedy may only use his power as an ally.



LAWYER [O:GK:L] COMPENSATED FOR LOSING TOKENS Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power to sue. You may force a player to pay you one Lucre for every token you lose to the warp, two Lucre for every token lost to another player's control but not the Praw, and four Lucre for every token permanently removed from the game. If no player has enough Lucre, get the Lucre from the bank.

History: The Lawyers are quick to follow the injured to file a complaint against those who caused them their injury. Their greed is such that they now emasculate themselves to get the quick cash.

Con: Lawyer may not sue you.



LIBERAL [O:rec.c] Controls Other Players Thoughts Gerald Katz

You have the power of political correctness. Before each turn secretly write down a word to declare it offensive to your feelings. The word must be a noun, verb, or adjective. For the rest of the game, any other player who says any of the offensive words or their derivatives must lose 2 tokens of their choice to the Warp after telling him the offending word he uttered. Players may use alternative words even if an offensive word is necessary for their power.

History: The Liberals place the utmost value on good self-esteem. They view it distasteful for anyone to consider themselves better than others in any way. To ensure that no one feels bad, the Liberals seek to eradicate all insensitive thoughts. Of course, all thoughts that disagree with theirs are always insensitive.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: A player who says your token color loses a token of your choice to the Warp.

Super1: You may add one word of any part of speech to your list.

Con: You only lose one token when speaking an offensive word.



LINK [O:rec.c] Uses Allies' Powers Gerald Katz

You have the power of camaraderie. As main player or ally, you may use one power of one player on your side of the challenge. Players maintain use of their own powers and timing conflict rules apply. You may use a power only available earlier in the challenge using the Insect vs. Loser rule. If linked to Changeling, you must swap this power with the opposing main player's power. If you lose the challenge when linked to Reincarnator and its incarnation, you must discard this power and get a new one.

History: Lacking their own initiative, the Links borrow ideas from their friends. They spread among the cosmos so that they can learn from everyone.

Restriction: Do Not Use With Mummy, Pod, Or Terrorist

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Meta type power.

Wild1: As main player, your allies may give you any of their cards. Any you don t use return to original owners. If not given any cards, you may keep this flare.

You may use the Lucre tokens as regular Lucre, including as part of your challenge total. Whenever you lose control of the Lucre tokens, they become Lucre for the new owner, i.e. Fungus. You control them in the Warp even if Warpish is in the game, but Warpish may count them. If you lose this power, retrieve all your Lucre, including the Warp, despite Super Warpish. If you get this power back, return the Lucre to your bases. You are immune to Crash Edicts.

History:

Restriction: USE ONLY WITH LUCRE IN THE GAME. DO NOT USE IN GAMES WITH THE PIRATE.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At the start of your turn, you may take 1 Lucre from the bank for every token you have in the Warp.

Super: No other player may spend their Lucre on anything.



LYNDON [M:GK] PLAYERS' ACTIONS DO NOT MATTER Gerald Katz (Presidential Encounter)

You have the power of inconsequence. As an ally in a challenge, there are two challenge totals calculated. The first is the normal calculations for the challenge totals. The second calculation only counts tokens, Challenge Cards, and Kickers. Powers, Emotion Control, Moons, Reinforcements, and Flares are ignored. Your personal win or loss for the challenge only regards the second calculation. It is possible for you to win the challenge while others on your side lose and vice-versa. You are affected by powers, Edicts, and Flares that do not alter challenge totals.

History: The Lyndons look impressive, but they realize their own incompetence. As disinterested parties in the affairs of others, they pursue their own agenda despite all cries for the contrary from those they support.

Restriction: Do Not Use With Gambler

Timing:
Phase 8 - Reveal cards

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: As main player, your opponent's allies' tokens do not count toward his challenge total.

Super1: You may use your power as a main player.

Pro: For the second challenge calculation, you may use game effects you control to affect the total that would normally not be effective.

Con: On the opposing side of Lyndon, only you and the Lyndon player may invoke game effects to affect the second challenge total calculation that would normally be ineffective.



MACRON [M:GK] Tokens Worth Three Gerald Katz (Revision)

You have the power of mass. Each of your tokens has a value of 3 when determining challenge totals. They only count as 1 for consolation and defensive rewards. You may put up to 4 tokens onto the cone as normal.

History: Coming from a gargantuan planet, the Macrons are accustomed to tremendous atmospheric and gravitational forces. Power comes so naturally to them, they scoff at the fragile intelligences they crush on their way to universal dominance.

Timing:
Phase 8 - Reveal cards

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power. Alternate version of Macron. From Gerald Katz: "I felt that the original Macron power was weakened by only being able to place one token in the cone. That it's worth 4 is meaningless when token removal affects take place."

Wild1: As an ally or offensive player, you may put as many tokens in the cone as you have bases, including bases in your own system.

Super1: Each of your tokens counts as three for consolation and rewards.

Pro: Your tokens are worth 5 each.

Con: Macron may only put one token onto the cone. The token is worth four.



MAFIA [O:GK:L] USES ATTACK CARDS AS LUCRE Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power of business. You may use any Attack card from 1 to 7 as Lucre. If paying to the bank, the card is discarded. If paying to a player, give him the card. Any change due is payed back in Lucre. You may spend regular Lucre with the card. Using a card this way does not count as playing a card.

History: We are just a loving family. Family is important. We are just humble businessmen, but you know something? It really would be a shame if anything bad happened to you.

Restriction: Use only in a game with Lucre.

Timing:
Play at any time

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: When required to give consolation, you may instead pay your opponent one Lucre per card.

Super1: You may use any one positive Attack Card as Lucre.

Pro: You may use Attack 8's, 9's, and 10's as Lucre as well.

Con: When Mafia pays you Lucre he must do so in Lucre.



MAYFAIR [O:rec.c] CHANGES RULES OF GAME Gerald Katz

You have the power to change the rules. In the beginning of each challenge, you may add, remove, or change any one game rule. This rule is made public and bound by all players. The rule may not duplicate any power currently in the game nor essentially nullify such a power. Changing the number of home bases to be able to use your power is okay. Also, you may not alter any conditions in winning the game. That prerogative is for the Schizoid. You may not change card values or instructions. You may not have a player essentially automatically win a challenge or the game. The rule may not single out any one player for better or for worse. You may not repeat a rule change. The rule change only lasts until the end of the challenge.

History: When the Mayfairs came onto the cosmic scene, it brought utter disaster and chaos to the space/time continuum. Some alien races could not handle hit, being forced to change their way of thinking and doing things. One alien race even changed color! Only through a temporary truce could they stop the Mayfairs from completely ruining everything. However, while the Mayfairs have been contained, they still seek to change the universe to their reality.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may win the game with 4 foreign bases, despite Schizoid.

Super1: You may have your rule change last until the end of the game. It is in effect when ever you have use of the Mayfair power.



MERCENARY [M:GK:L] GETS PAID TO ALLY Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power to be hired. When you ally in a challenge, the main player with whom you ally must pay you 1 Lucre for each token you commit to the challenge. As such, each of your tokens count as three for determining challenge totals, though only one for defensive rewards. If the main player cannot afford to pay you, collect what you can, and you then have a lien on his Lucre. As soon as he gets Lucre, he must pay you what he owes.

History: The Mercenaries hire themselves out to the highest bidder for they love to fight. However, their ultimate plan is to establish such an indispensable position in the universe so that they can turn the tables and force their former employers to fight each other in their arenas for their entertainment.

Restriction: Use only in a game with Lucre

Timing:
Phase 6 - Allies accept
Phase 8 - Reveal cards

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: You may sell any of your cards.

Wild: You may sell any of your cards.

Super1: After collecting the Lucre or card, you need not ally at all. If both main players invited you to ally, you may ally on the other side but for free.

Super: After collecting the Lucre or card, you need not ally at all. If both main players invited you to ally, you may ally on the other side but for free.

Pro: Your fee is 2 Lucre per token. As such, your tokens are worth 4 each.

Con: Mercenary's payment to ally is 2 Lucre, total. His tokens are only worth 2 each for computing challenge totals.



MERCHANT [M:GK:L] SPENDS LESS LUCRE Gerald Katz (Lucre)

You have the power of bargains. When you spend Lucre for a fixed price, even to another player, you need only pay half the amount rounded up.

History: Always looking for bargains, the Merchants have excelled in being able to purchase items they need at the best price. Their excess cash will certainly help in buying off the cosmos.

Restriction: Use only in a game with Lucre.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: You may buy cards randomly from another player. Pay him 1 Lucre per card.

Super1: One Lucre you spend counts for three times the purchase.

Pro: You may spend 2 Lucre to buy a Flare from the unused Flare deck or 3 Lucre to discard a card.

Con: When Merchant pays you Lucre, there is no "credit" for future payments.



METEOROLOGIST [B:rec.c] Bases Have Weather Conditions Gerald Katz

You have the power of weather. At the start of each challenge, all players roll a 6 sided die to determine what weather condition will effect their home system for that challenge. You will have some immunity on the particular weather condition. 1 - Sunny - The challenge is carried out as normal. 2 - Rainy - All Offensive tokens are half their value unless you are on the Offensive side. 3 - Hail - All Offensive tokens are worth twice their value unless you are on the Defensive side. 4 - Foggy - All Defensive tokens are worth half their value unless you are on the Defensive Side. 5 - Blizzard - All Defensive tokens are twice their value unless you are on the Offensive side. 6 - Hurricane - No player may get a base in this system for any reason. Destiny is flipped again if necessary. You may ignore the Hurricane. Tokens worth twice their value allow the player double the amount of rewards or consolation. Tokens worth half their value limit the player to half as much rewards or consolation, rounded down.

History: Nature has a way of helping or hindering Aliens in their quest for dominance. The Meteorologists can shape it for their own advantage.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may have a tornado strike a base. All tokens there go to the warp. This is a use once and discard Flare for Ancients.

Super1: You may change the weather condition in the defensive system to any other condition desired. The challenge ends and tokens return to bases if you make it a hurricane.



MUMMY [M:rec.c] Has Pre-selected Bases Gerald Katz

You have the power of embalming. At game set-up, you set aside any number of your tokens off the board. You also select a number of bases equal to the number of players in the game where you will have entombed tokens. Divide your set aside tokens among those bases secretly written down somewhere. When any player establishes a base on a planet as a result of winning the challenge or making a deal where you have a tomb, place the appropriate amount of set aside tokens there and establish a base. When you have no more tombs, if and when you have tokens in the Warp, take them out, set them aside, and choose two more bases as tombs, and divide those set aside tokens as before. If you lose the use of this power, tombs will still open, but your tokens would then go into the Warp.

History: Before the current cosmic war, the Mummies explored the universe. Those brave souls who unfortunately passed away were buried among the alien worlds. Excelling in mummification, they knew that under the right circumstances, they can bring back to life their dead ancestors. What better way to honor them then by giving them the universe to rule?

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: When you get a new hand you may randomly take the cards from the discard pile.

Super1: You may open any one of your tombs and establish a base now.

Pro: When you lose tokens to the Warp, they are instead embalmed on a new tomb. Put the tokens off board and select another tomb.

Con: When Mummy loses tokens to the Warp, they are instead embalmed on already existing tombs. Put the tokens off board.



MURPHY [O:rec.c] Game Play Mistakes Remain Gerald Katz

You have the power to go wrong. Through out the game, if a mistake has been discovered, you may prevent its correction even if a rule is broken. If a player wants to change his mind for a game action already done or mentioned, you may force him not to. If a player realizes he could have done something but it is too late, you may prevent him from doing it even if other players would allow him or it was a mandatory power. In case of Terrorist forgetting there was a bomb on a planet, the bomb would remain.

History: Many an Alien curses himself when something goes wrong in their daily routines or plan of action. While they try to recover from their errors, some are beginning to wonder if there is really an unseen force behind it all.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may cancel a deal other players have made. They each lose three tokens to the Warp. This counts as losing a challenge for both players if applicable.

Super1: You may cause a player to lose his turn.

Pro: You may stop the use of a player's power as soon as he attempts to use it. This card may only be played once per challenge.

Con: The Murphy player is subject to his own power.



NERD [O:rec.c] No Specific Player Status Gerald Katz

You have the power of no status. As main player, you may play cards and other of your powers only available as an ally. As an ally, you may play cards, except challenge cards, and other of your powers as a main player. Use normal timing rules in case of conflict. Your power works even for cards which are stricter. For example, you may play cards only available as an offensive player not only as an ally but also as defensive player. If you are playing with Lucre, you may purchase items with Lucre as an ally.

History: The Nerds have become an outcast of the cosmic clique, never welcomed among the cool parties and celebrations. However, the highly intelligent Nerds use this forced segregation to their advantage by ignoring the accepted rules of etiquette and do anything they want.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: When someone wins the game all players get one more challenge, in turn. If no one can win afterwards, the game continues. Otherwise, who ever can win does so.

Super1: If the total number of home and foreign bases that you have is exactly 5 you win the game, despite Schizoid.

Pro: You need not be involved in the challenge at all to play various cards and powers or spend Lucre. You designate necessary targets.

Con: When Nerd uses his power, if you are of the non-Challenge Card's appropriate status, you designate any target. You cannot target Nerd.



NORMAL [M:Archi] NOT AFFECTED BY POWERS Gerald Katz

You have the power of no power. You may not use your multiple powers, though you do receive them. You are not affected by any other players' powers. Whenever a power is used, proceed as if it never happened. You are also not affected by super flares. However, you may not benefit from other players' powers, ex. Healer. You are affected by Edicts except by Mesmer's power and Flares except by the Flare's power.

History:

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: You need not be affected by any Edict or Wild Flare unless there's no choice or it directly affects this card.

Super: You may use your multiple powers and may benefit from other players' powers.



OBAMA [M:rec.c] No One Else Can Win Without You Gerald Katz (Presidential Encounter)

You have the power of being loved. No other player can win the game unless you share the win.

History: Originating from an obscure part of the cosmos, once the Obamas arrived on the scene others could not help but love them. There are disagreements, naturally, but the Obamas lack of cosmic experience does not stop them from being able to achieve mastery.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As an ally, if your side does not win the challenge, it is canceled. Played cards are discarded normally, tokens return to bases, and the offensive players turn ends.

Super: You may play this card when you dont have your power unless its because of lack of home bases or loss of power card. When another player(s) wins the game, if that player caused you not to have your power this challenge, you win the game alone.

Pro: No one else can gain a base unless you get one too. Players who gain a base must give you one or else return their tokens to their other bases.

Con: If Obama wins the game, you share the win.



PALADIN [O:rec.c] Plays Flares For Other Players Gerald Katz

You have the power of chivalry. You may take the top Flare from the unused Flare pile, look at it, and put it aside. In between challenges you may discard it, but not onto the discard pile, and select another Flare. Once per challenge, at any time and special conditions that particular Flare allows, you may play it for another player, regardless of your involvement in a particular challenge. That player would then get the benefit of that Flare. He cannot refuse and must abide by it. If the Flare requires a particular target for it to take action, the player who is getting its benefit decides. You are permitted to offer a suggestion. However, you may override his decision if it causes you to lose tokens, a base, Lucre, a challenge, cards, etc. unless you don't particularly mind. You would then select the target. Ancients does not get to keep the Flare, Darwin cannot make it a power, and you may play the Flare for a player opposing Cripple. After the Flare is played, you may put it in your hand for your own future use. You would then select another Flare from the unused Flare deck as before. Your Paladin Flare is immune to the Flare Zap only. A Cosmic Zap not only prevents the Flare from being played, but also get discarded onto the discard pile. However, you would then select another Flare when your power is available again. Should you get the Human or Masochist Flare through your power, you immediately discard it, but not onto the discard pile, and select another Flare.

History: The gallant Paladins travel the Cosmos in a holy quest to do good. Their hearts and souls pure, they are content with the knowledge that their unselfish acts bring delight upon all they encounter.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: As an ally, you may play a Kicker for the main player on your side of the challenge.

Super1: When you take a Flare from the unused Flare deck for your power, you may look through the Flare Deck and select the particular Flare you want.

Pro: Your Paladin Flare is put directly into your hand. After you play a Flare, it is not discarded. It then has the status of a Paladin Flare. Once it is used, it is then discarded.

Con: Paladin must give you first opportunity for use of his Paladin Flare. If you do not want it, he may then choose another player for that particular Flare, even if it is in another challenge.



PARANOID [M:rec.c] FORCES OTHERS TO CHOOSE SIDES Gerald Katz

You have the power to fear others. As main player, all players who can be an ally must be an ally. If, as a result, no player is your ally, then there may not be any allies and all their tokens return to bases, despite Parasite or Friendly. Glue and Magnet prevail.

History:

Restriction: DO NOT USE IN A TWO PLAYER GAME.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a losing defensive player, all of your opponent's allies must each lose two tokens to the Warp.

Super: As main player, all players who can ally must be your ally.



PISCES [O:GK] Asks For Card From Opponent Gerald Katz (Astrology)

You have the power to go. As main player in a challenge, before Challenge Cards are played, you may ask your opponent if he has a specific card (e.g. Attack Card 12 or Wild Virus Flare). If he has the card he must give it to you. If he doesn't have the card, you draw a card from the Challenge Deck.

History: Always on the hunt for resources, the rather lazy Pisces prefer to get their wares from those who did the work and found it first. Having ready made materials allows them an easier time to conquer their benefactors.

Wild1: As main player, if you have Attack Cards in your hand that match the Challenge Card you revealed, you may play them and add them to your total. All cards are discarded normally.

Super1: As an ally, you may use your power on your main player opponent.

Pro: You may use your power twice in the challenge. If you draw the card you asked for from the Challenge Deck, you win the challenge, despite Loser.

Con: As main player against Pisces, Pisces uses his power on another player.



POD [M:rec.c] Uses Other Players' Tokens Gerald Katz

You have the power to impersonate. You do not have a system hex, tokens, or destiny color. Throughout the game, if you have no tokens as offensive player, just point the cone as normal. Whenever you win the challenge as main player, flip over all losing tokens. They go/remain on the base and are your tokens for the rest of the game. Players can only get them back if they beat their own tokens in a future challenge. They would still go to the Warp. Other of your losing tokens would also go to the Warp but remain yours. Void and Fungus, for example, are forced to use their powers on their own tokens. Whenever you have tokens involved in the challenge, you may use any of the powers corresponding to the powers of the original owners of the tokens involved in the challenge, if the original players still have use of their powers. If any power combination causes a conflict of interest, you decide which power shall prevail, the other being ignored. A Cosmic Zap stops you from using those powers or collecting tokens should you win. You cannot be reincarnated. If this power somehow gets transferred to another player, you essentially switch everything. You get his powers, tokens, cards, home system, etc, and he gets whatever is yours. In games with Lucre, you will collect 4 Lucre plus 1 Lucre for each base you have on your turn.

History: Many a general will get reports of unrest at a remote colony only to find everything is peaceful upon investigating the matter. Assuming everything is fine, the general leaves, ignorant of the fact that intelligent microorganisms have taken over.

Restriction: Do not use with Insect or Link

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Meta type power.

Wild1: You may use any power of any one player.

Super1: Take 1 token from all players and make them your own. Put them on a base you have. If you have no bases, establish one anywhere.

Pro: All tokens you lose to the Warp remain your tokens.

Con: Whenever your tokens that Pod has go to the Warp, they instead return to your bases under your control.



POLITICIAN [O:rec.c] Allies Don't Go To Warp Gerald Katz

You have the power to campaign. As a main player, if you lose the challenge, your allies do not go to the Warp or other players as in Fungus or Void. They may return them to bases. If you win the challenge, for every token you have in the challenge, you may take a token out of the Warp or card from the deck, immune to the Cosmic Gas. You need not have had allies for this ability.

History: The Politicians travel the cosmos promising security for the votes of confidence of others. In the meantime, they secretly dip into the cosmic pool of resources for their own corrupt plans of domination.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: As main player, you may show an ally opposing you a card you will give him to switch sides. If he does not, you may keep this card.

Super1: Your allies go to the Warp if you lose the challenge.

Pro: Show the main players this card when they ask for allies. If you ally, the main player with whom you ally will return tokens to bases instead of the Warp should he lose the challenge. You will get rewards in addition to the base or double rewards, whichever is applicable.

Con: Politician must have allies to gain rewards for winning a challenge. You must show him this card before allies are called for.



POSTMAN [M:rec.c] Other Players Must Wait For Cards Gerald Katz

You have the power of slowness. When any other player is entitled to cards from the deck, discard pile, another player, or unused flare deck, he does not receive it immediately. Instead, the cards are set aside out of play. The player does not receive them until the corresponding step in the next challenge. If the offensive player has no challenge cards, his turn ends, even if he must lose his entire turn. There are certain conditions which supersede your power: game set-up, Mutant using his power, Miser getting cards for his hoard, defensive player getting a new hand for lack of a challenge card, and any power where cards exchange hands but only if by use of power it must be carried out for challenge to continue. For example, if Trader trades hands, the cards are exchanged immediately because cards are needed to play challenge cards; however, Philanthropist's gift can be set aside until next challenge since even though the gift must be sent, it doesn't have to be played.

History: Many a customer complain about late deliveries of packages, but the Postmen always say that it can't be helped due to the huge demand of their services. Their true motive, of course, is to get into a position where everyone would have no choice but to depend on the Postmen to be in charge of everything.

Restriction: Do not use in games with Pavlov

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: You may force someone to wait until the corresponding step in the next challenge to take tokens out of the Warp.

Super1: The set aside cards get lost into the discard pile.

Pro: Players must wait two challenges before they get their cards.

Con: By allowing Postman to look through your hand and take a card he wants, except this one, you can have "express service". Cards you are entitled to go immediately into your hand instead of having to wait a challenge.



PRAW [M:rec.c] Creates A Second Warp Gerald Katz

You have the power of abyss. When there are 15 or more tokens in the Warp, they all leave the warp and go into the Praw. If any of those tokens are yours, you return them to bases. Anything that can take tokens out of the warp will also take tokens out of the Praw into the Warp. However, if this puts the token count in the warp at 15 or more, they all go back into the Praw. If you lose your power, tokens remain in the Praw but are considered in the Warp.

History: Deep within the warp, unknown to the wisest of sages, exists another dimension where the remains of the departed go, unaffected by the latest warp-resurrection technology. What is even more dangerous, they don't even know it is expanding.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: When a player tries to take tokens out of the warp, he must instead put the same number of his tokens into the Warp.

Super1: All tokens in the Warp and those going there this challenge go immediately into the Praw.

Pro: Tokens go into the Praw when there are 10 tokens in the Warp.

Con: Tokens go into the Praw when there are 20 tokens in the Warp.



PROGENITOR [B:rec.c] Has A Second Home System Gerald Katz

You have the power to uplift. You have a second system hex complete with its own tokens, cards, destiny color, powers, etc. You decide where to place it on the board. You play this system like a player normally would. Both system tokens may ally with each other but may not share cards. To win the game, either you or your second system must have 5 foreign bases, but not collectively. Bases in each other's system do not count. If you lose your power, everything regarding your second system is frozen until you get your power back, but players bases there still count for the win. If you or the second system draws the other in destiny, draw again. The second system is considered a game artifact.

History: Much to everyone's denial, the Progenitors claim to be the first alien race of the universe, having created all the others. Ignoring their children s denial, the Progenitors continue their life-giving ways. They would be so proud if their child race gained dominance over the cosmos. Naturally, though, that child would always do what its parent says.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: As main player, you may use a randomly chosen power from the unused powers deck for one challenge.

Super1: If you and your second system collectively have 5 foreign bases, you win the game, despite Schizoid.

Pro: You may share cards with the hand of your second system.

Con: Progenitor gets one turn only for his systems. He may have either system do his first challenge. Should he win, he may allow the other system get a challenge.



QUASAR [B:GK:Pu] Uses Pulsar Cards Gerald Katz (Pulsars)

You have the power to pulse. At game set-up, collect all Pulsar Cards of other players' powers and place them on this power card. Between each challenge, you may have a Pulsar Card face up to show it's activated for your benefit or face down to have it not be activated for the challenge. Do this for each Pulsar Card, and they need not all be face up or down. Other players can play Pulsar Zap cards as Cosmic Zaps for this power.

History: Borne from a fluctuating star, the Quasars radiate electromagnetic fluxes in highs and lows. These waves cause an imbalance in the equilibrium of all other life forms, weakening their physical statures. Soon they will melt away into nothingness.

Restriction: Use only in a game with Pulsars.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Meta type power.

Wild1: If a Flare or Pulsar card of your power gets discarded, you may take it and put it in your hand.

Super1: You may take the Pulsar Card(s) of your power(s) from the discard pile and put them in your hand.

Pro: Once per challenge you may use one Pulsar Card as a Cosmic Zap for that power when face up. You keep the card.

Con: Quasar must place the Pulsar Card(s) of your power(s) face down.



QUITTER [B:rec.c] Leaves The Game Gerald Katz

You have the power to quit. At the end of your turn, you may quit the game. When you quit you must discard your hand. All other players with tokens in your system must return them to bases. Your color is ignored in the destiny pile, but will be reshuffled in when applicable. No other player may benefit in any way from your tokens. All your tokens are returned to your home system including from Fungus, Vampire, and Void. Your tokens and home system are out of play. Other players may not effect them in any way. After one round of play when it would have normally been your turn, you reenter the game. You get a new hand. You also establish a number of foreign bases equal to the least number of foreign bases another player has, not counting moons. You may establish these bases anywhere. Play then resumes starting with your turn. You do not have to quit if you do not want to. You can only be zapped when attempting to quit, not reentering the game. When you are not in the game, you may not interfere in any way.

History: The Quitters are always more than willing to join in fun and games, but when they realize they are in last place with no hope to win, they leave in disgust complaining about the unfairness of it all. However, they soon forget what they didn't like, miss the activity they were in, and return. As hard as Aliens try, no one can spot the Quitters until it's too late. The best they can do is placate them and hope the Quitters don't rub it in should they win.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: As an ally, you may quit the challenge after cards are revealed. Return your tokens to bases.

Super1: Play this card when you quit. Upon your return, you will establish a number of foreign bases equal to the player who has the most foreign bases not counting moons.

Pro: Play this card when you quit the game. You may keep any cards in your hand, including this one. They are added to your new hand when you return to the game.

Con: Play this card just before Quitter's turn. He may only quit the game at this time, not after his turn.



RECIPROCAL [M:rec.c] Challenges Are Out Of Order Gerald Katz

You have the power of alternate universe. Phases 3 to 7 in all challenges happen in reverse order. After the defensive player is determined, both main players play challenge cards. Then, other players can ally as desired. The defensive player accepts or rejects those who've allied with him, then the offensive player. Finally, the offensive player commits tokens and points the cone. The challenge continues to phase 8. Cards and powers take place during their appropriate phase as possible. Also, timing priority is thus: defensive player, offensive player, right of defensive player counter-clockwise. If you are a main player, you may have the challenge and/or timing priority take place under normal rules. If this power is zapped, do the challenge over starting with phase 3.

History: A starship's warp engines mysteriously exploded while traveling through hyperspace. This caused a rift in the space/time continuum. What was abnormal is now normal and vice-versa. A race of beings from an alternate reality traveled through the hole created by the explosion and now seek to bring the universal chaos under their control.

Restriction: Do Not Use In Games With Canary

Wild1: If you have no home bases you win the game, despite any power with alternative win condition.

Super1: After phase 7 is completed, you may have the challenge go right to phase 3.

Pro: While the challenge phases are reversed, you need not play game effects of the affected phases during their phase. You may play them at any time during phases 7 to 3.

Con: Timing priority is normal.



SCOOP [M:rec.c] COMMITS ALLIANCES Gerald Katz

You have the power of contracts. As main player, you always invite allies first. Your opponent may not invite to ally any player whom you invited to be an ally, regardless of whether or not that player allies with you.

History: Always rushing to get the story first, the Scoop entice people to give them the exclusive. The Scoop use their privileged information to establish themselves in a position where nothing can happen without their knowledge, or approval.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: If you invited allies but receive none, your opponent's allies must return their tokens to bases.

Super1: You may prevent your opponent from inviting allies.

Pro: You may use your power to declare instead there cannot be any allies at all on either side through normal rules.

Con: As main player against Scoop, all players who are invited to ally must do so. Play this card before Scoop asks for allies.



SECRETARY [O:rec.c] Takes Notes Gerald Katz

You have the power of dictation. Through out the game you may write down notes of any information you want about the game. One example is the specific cards a player takes from your hand as consolation. You may refer to these notes as you play. When you are entitled to cards from another player, you may name specific cards you know he has, if you wish. If he has them he gives them to you, counting against the number of cards you are entitled. However, if he does not have the cards, he does not give you a replacement and they count against the number of cards you are entitled. You may not ask cards of Miser's hoard hand, though you may keep notes on it. If Cloud is in the game you may only ask for cards of the viewing hands but may keep notes on the hidden hands. You may provide information from your notes as part of a deal. If you lose your power, you cannot make any more notes but may refer to any you already have.

History: Conquering the cosmos can be hectic with resources lost through miscommunication. The Secretaries' diligent note taking will keep their heads above the fray. Soon, they will be the Boss.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: When another player takes cards from your hand, the player must keep them facing everyone else. He can play them as normal. If anyone else then gets those cards, they must hold them the same way. If you get the cards back, you hold them facing you as normal, and they are no longer subject to this Flare. This Flare's effect takes place if it is one of the cards taken from your hand, but it is not discarded.

Super1: If the player does not have any cards you name, you get replacement cards in the normal manner you are taking cards from his hand.

Pro: At the start of your turn, look through everybody's hand and write down who has what.

Con: When Secretary takes cards from your hand, he may not name specific cards. He takes the cards as he normally would. He cannot take this card until all your other cards are taken, and he is still entitled to more. He may play the Finder Edict as normal.



SERLING [B:rec.c] Players Choose Defensive Player Gerald Katz

You have the power of the twilight zone. At game set-up, the destiny pile consists of four colors of each player, the two wilds, one comet for each player plus one, and one special destiny for each player plus one. Shuffle the destiny pile and deal 6 to each player. You get the extra four. These destiny cards are not part of anyone's regular hand in any way. Now, when the offensive player would normally flip the destiny pile, he instead plays one of his destiny cards, with a comet is optional, to determine whom he will attack. A player may play a destiny card of his own color only if he would be making a challenge in his own system. Destiny based powers proceed as if that destiny color was normally flipped. If for some reason the offensive player does not have a destiny card that allows him to make a challenge he does not get one, though he may still take a token out of the warp and collect Lucre if applicable. His turn then ends. When you do not have a destiny card that allows you to make a challenge or you are the only player who has such a destiny card after finishing your turn, choose new special destiny/comet cards, shuffle all destiny cards, and redeal six destiny cards to each player, again keeping an extra four. You may cancel any destiny card played by another player by playing one of your own. That player would then have to proceed as if the destiny card you played is the one the player had played. You may also play a comet on someone else's challenge or even to override a comet another player has played. A Cosmic Zap can stop you from cancelling another player s destiny card, your play of a comet on another player's turn, or reshuffling the destiny cards when you re out of them on your turn provided at least one other player has playable destiny cards. The destiny pile only returns to normal when this power is permanently removed from play or you don't have it for lack of home bases. However, when you get your home bases back, reshuffle and deal the destiny cards as before.

History: There's a fifth dimension between an Alien's mind and his imagination. You never know just when you cross over, but when you do, expect the unexpected.

Restriction: Do Not Use With Dictator, Fate, Hex, Pod, Or Reverse System Hexes

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: You may take a Special Destiny Card from the unused destiny cards to replace the destiny card drawn.

Super1: When the destiny cards are reshuffled and dealt, you decide who gets what cards.

Pro: When you deal out the destiny cards, only give 4 to each player and keep the rest.

Con: As offensive player, if you have no legal challenge to make, Serling reshuffles all the destiny cards as per his power. You then take your challenge.



SERVER [O:rec.c] Challenge Phase Doesn't Exist Gerald Katz

You have the power to go off-line. At the start of each challenge secretly roll a 10-sided die. The challenge phase that corresponds to the number rolled will no longer exist for that challenge. No power, card, moon, or any other game effect may be played during that phase. If a power can only be used during that phase, it cannot be used later in the challenge. When the corresponding phase is about to begin, reveal the die roll. A challenge is also affected depending upon the number rolled. However, in all cases, the challenge phase exists for you as normal. 1 - The offensive player cannot take a token out of the warp nor collect Lucre. 2 - No destiny is flipped. Offensive player may choose any defensive system except yours. 3 - Offensive player does not put tokens on the cone. If he loses in phase 8, he loses no tokens. If he wins, he gets no base but defender must lose a home base of his choice. Allies get normal rewards. Boomerang power cannot be used. If phase 3 exists, the phase that does not exist doesn't exist in the Boomerang challenge either. 4 - Offensive player can only ask you to ally. 5 - Defensive player can only ask you to ally. 6 - Only you may accept an alliance invitation. 7 - Since no challenge cards are played, challenge will be concluded by token count only plus any Reinforcements. However, if you're main player, you may play a challenge card as normal. 8 - No challenge happens at all. Tokens return to bases. If you're offensive player or an ally, conclude the challenge as normal only to determine whether you're on the winning side or not and apply results. Only you may invoke game effects. The losing defender cannot lose the base or his tokens. If you're challenging an occuppied moon, you must return your tokens to other of your bases. 9 - Cards are not discarded. They are effectively removed from the game. Vulch cannot collect Edicts. 10 - Interphase does not exist. Therefore, go immediately to phase 1 of next challenge. However, you still roll the die as per your power and may play interphase effects. Machine cannot continue his turn nor would Reincarnator get a new incarnation.

History: To coordinate their war efforts, aliens need to be able to communicate over a vast web of information technology. The Servers are charged with organizing the vast amount of communiqués. However, due to the large volume of information, it's only natural (hehe) that the Servers would be overwhelmed and must "shut down" to sort everything out. The frustrations this causes everyone else doesn't seem to phase them.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: You may cause a player's power to go off-line. It cannot be used during this challenge.

Super1: You may cause a player's turn to go off-line. Play passes to the next player.

Pro: You may roll the die again. If a second number comes up, the corresponding phase also does not exist.

Con: As offensive player, phase 8 always exists.



SHARPTON [O:rec.c] Lowers Players' Values Gerald Katz

You have the power of demagoguery. As a main player or ally, if your side loses the challenge, your tokens do not go to the Warp. Instead, place them on the opposing main player's star. Whenever a player is involved in the challenge, the number of your tokens on his star is subtracted from his side's challenge total. If the player is on the losing side, your tokens on his star are returned to your bases.

History: The Sharptons were once subjugated by an alien race and lived in hardship. Having finally won their freedom, they find all other life forms oppressive and seek to destroy them. They scream and yell in protest against imagined injustices committed by others. Denying their own oppression, their enemies have no choice but to cave in to their demands.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: As main player or ally, the number of tokens you have in the challenge is subtracted from the opposing side's total.

Super1: You may keep your tokens on the losing players' stars.

Pro: Your tokens on players' stars also subtract the number of consolation cards and rewards received. This value cannot go below 0.

Con: Sharpton's tokens that leave a player's star go to the Warp.



SPOILER [M:rec.c] Ends The Game Gerald Katz

You have the power to party poop. At game set up, select any card in the bottom half of the challenge deck and turn it face up, leaving it in the challenge deck. During the game, when any player gets that card, the game ends and you win, despite the Schizoid. When any player is entitled to cards from the deck but not from the top of the pile, he may not select that card. If zapped or somehow don't have your power when someone gets that card, select another card from the bottom half of the remaining deck when you get your power back. The challenge deck cannot be reshuffled for any reason.

History: It never fails that when everyone is having fun, there is always someone who has to leave right in the middle because "it's getting late". This ruins the fun for everyone else, but the Spoiler doesn't care.

Wild1: When not involved in a challenge, you may look at one of the main players' Challenge Card and truthfully announce what it is. His opponent may then change his card, still subject to any applicable powers.

Super1: You may move the turned over card in the challenge deck 20 cards upwards.

Pro: You do not have to play this card. The game is over. There is no winner.

Con: The first player who is not Spoiler to get this card moves the upturned card in the challenge deck 20 cards lower. This effect can only be played once per game.



STING [O:GK] Switches Dying Tokens Gerald Katz (Revision)

You have the power to substitute. Whenever you lose tokens, you may designate another player to lose them instead. Your tokens return to bases, and he chooses an equal number of his own to lose. He then may draw one card from your hand for each token he lost. If you have too few cards, he may draw the remainder from the deck or may take that many Lucre from you, at his choice.

History: Genetically sterile through a side-effect of their colony's energy shield, the Sting desperately sought a way to save themselves from extinction. In their quest, they stumbled upon a vampiric form of immortality. Emboldened, they now scour the Cosmos in search of a cure for their sterility, and woe to those who try to stop them.

Timing:
Play at any time

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power. This version of Sting removes "involuntary" from its description.

Super: When you send another player's tokens to the Warp instead of yours, he gets nothing in return.

Pro: You choose the cards from your hand the player gets.

Con: Sting cannot choose you to lose tokens.



SUPERHERO [O:rec.c] Makes Defensive Player Win Challenges Gerald Katz

You have the power to save. When not a Main Player, after challenge cards are revealed, if either Main Player loses, you may replace his challenge card with one of your own so that the defensive player wins. You may then take a token out of the warp or card from the deck.

History: Faster then a speeding Edict! More powerful than a 40 Attack Card! It's a Comet! It's a Flare! It's Superhero! A strange creature from another planet who seeks nothing but to save the innocent and the helpless. Of course, the Superhero can better protect everyone if they would all do what the Superhero wants them to do.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: Whenever another player loses tokens to the warp, you may have that player keep his tokens.

Super1: As main player, you may have any player rescue you. If he cannot, you may keep this card.

Pro: If after rescuing some game effect is invoked such that the rescued player loses the challenge, you may either rescue again or take back your rescue card.

Con: Play this card before Superhero decides to ally. If he does ally, he cannot rescue but the main player on his side gets +3 or -3 to his challenge total at the player's choice.



TRAITOR [M:rec.c] Opponent's Tokens Help Win Challenges Gerald Katz

You have the power of treachery. As main player, if both you and your opponent reveal Attack Cards and you lose, if the difference between the challenge totals is less than or equal to the number of tokens your opponent and his allies have in the challenge, then you win the challenge. This comes into effect after all other challenge manipulations, including Loser.

History: The Traitors are adept at convincing the lower ranks of their enemies at how under appreciative they are. They thus learn their enemies secrets and win all battles.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild1: As a winning ally, you may have your side lose the challenge.

Super1: As an ally, your side wins the challenge if the difference between the challenge totals is less than or equal to the number of tokens on the opposing side.

Pro: As main player, after challenge cards are revealed, you may switch sides. Your tokens then count as ally tokens for your opponent.

Con: As main player against Traitor, his power comes into effect before challenge total manipulations, including Loser.



TWINS [M:rec.c] Keeps Lost Tokens Gerald Katz

You have the power of replacement doubles. When you lose tokens to the Warp, instead, flip them over. If they were on a planet, they remain, else they return to other bases. These flipped tokens count as your tokens in every way. When flipped tokens must go to the Warp, they then do so reflipped. The act of flipping can effect things like Terrorist's bombs. Also, anything that can release tokens from the Warp can reflip flipped tokens. Glue's power can't do this, but tokens glued to the Warp are not flipped and remain in the same condition upon leaving the Warp. When applicable, losing unflipped tokens go directly into the Void.

History: Aliens do a double take when they see their enemy whom they just sent to the warp alive and well as if nothing has happened. The Twins are determined to never leave.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: You may retrieve all your tokens from the Warp, Void, Fungus, etc. and return them to bases.

Super1: You may reflip all your flipped tokens immune to effects like Terrorist's bombs.

Pro: When flipped tokens go to the Warp, reflip them instead. However, if applicable, they cannot remain on the base. You must return them to other of your bases. You may do this upon losing your third home base.

Con: When Twins flips his tokens on a base, he must return them to other of his bases. He may do this for such tokens should he be losing his third home base.



UFO [M:rec.c] Shares Tokens With Other Players Gerald Katz

You have the power to abduct. As offensive player or ally, take one token on the defensive base (it does not have to be the defensive player) and put it on your star. At the beginning of each of your turns, wherever you share bases with players whose tokens you have taken, you must return them to among those bases but flip them over to designate their new status as hybrid tokens. These hybrid tokens are to be considered as your tokens in every way for the rest of the game. However, those tokens still count as regular tokens for their original owners. Therefore, you both get to use the tokens in every way tokens are used. Use the timing conflict rule with the Insect vs. Loser clarification when it becomes necessary to determine who may move and get the use of a token first. For purposes of play, that token then only counts for that particular player, such as getting defensive rewards as a winning defensive ally for example, but it still counts as occupying a base for both players. If you lose the use of your power, you do not get the use of these hybrid tokens, but you do regain their use when you get your power back, but you keep any tokens still held on your star. If a token should have a special characteristic because of another power, that token only has that characteristic when that other power is used.

History: Many an Alien claim to have been kidnaped by flying saucers and subjected to horrible experiments. While their friends laugh at such a preposterous story, those experiments prove fruitful in the birth of new life.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: All players take a random card from the regular hand of the player on their right. If you get to keep this Flare for some reason, return it to your hand before cards are drawn.

Super1: You may convert any 4 of your hybrid tokens to become only your tokens for the rest of the game.

Pro: All timing conflicts for using hybrid tokens favor you, even if Queue is in the game. If a hybrid token gives a player a privilege, such as defensive rewards, you gain the privilege as well for each such token.

Con: UFO may not abduct your token if another player's token is available.



VENTRILOQUIST [M:rec.c] Risks Another Player's Tokens Gerald Katz

You have the power to throw your voice. As offensive player or ally, instead of putting tokens into the cone, you select another player, not defensive player, to risk his tokens at a number you specify. That player chooses the tokens. Those tokens then count as yours in every way. The dummy is not considered involved in the challenge in any way at this time. He may not ally normally. However, if you win the challenge, you must put the same number of tokens on that base as well. Only you get the base in moon challenges. The dummy returns his tokens to other of his bases. As offensive player, only Ventriloquist can get consolation if he compromises. The dummy does not.

History: Aliens go about their business in their cosmic struggle for universal dominance. Some are beginning to wonder, however, if there is really someone else who is pulling their strings.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild1: If both main players invited you to ally, you may ally on both sides.

Super1: If you win the challenge, your dummy does not get the base. He returns his tokens to his own bases.

Pro: Once per challenge choose a player other than the offensive player to be your dummy. You make all decisions for him including if and how his power is used, all votes, and alliances. You cannot see his hand. He plays Challenge Cards normally but for any Edicts and Flares he plays, you decide appropriate targets.

Con: Ventriloquist cannot choose you to be his dummy.



VIOLIN [O:rec.c] Chooses Consolation Cards Gerald Katz

You have the power of pity. As main player, when you collect consolation cards, you may look through your opponent's regular hand and choose the cards you want. When your opponent collects consolation cards from you, you select the cards he gets.

Wild1: You may prevent your opponent from collecting consolation cards from you.

Super1: You may use your power while collecting consolation from your opponent's allies as well.

Con: When you collect consolation from Violin, if you do not like the cards he gave you, you may give them back. You do not get any further consolation, however.



WABBIT [O:rec.c] GAINS MANY TOKENS Gerald Katz

You have the power to breed. At the start of each of your turns, for every 2 tokens you have on all your bases, rounded down, you may place one token there from those not in the game. This is immune to effects such as Terrorist's bombs. When there are no more tokens, use Lucre counters. The added tokens/counters are now considered your tokens for the rest of the game.

History: They re cute. They re fuzzy. They re disgustingly affectionate. They breed profusely. They just keep going and going and going. Soon there will be no room for anyone else in the universe, not that they ll ever notice. That is why many an alien will sing, Kill the Wabbit! Kill the Wabbit! Kill the Wabbit! Kill the Wabbit!

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild1: Take a moon from the unused moons, put it on your hex, and put some of your tokens on it. It is not a moon. It is forever more a 6th planet in your home system.

Super1: You may breed your tokens in the Warp.

Pro: When you breed, you do so on a one-for-one basis.

Con: When Wabbit breeds, he only gets one new token per base, even if he only has one token on a base.



WEREWOLF [B:GK:M] Moons Help Towards Win Gerald Katz (Moons)

You have the power of moons. All moon bases that you have outside your system count towards the win. You are still bound by Schizoid. Moon Base Omega counts as only one base. You may also recycle moons. That is, as offensive player, if you have a moon base in the defensive system, you may abandon the base and reestablish it in that challenge and have the moon's effect take place again.

History: Normal people by day, at night, the Werewolves undergo a painful metamorphosis into horrible creatures on site of a full moon. Achieving space travel, they are in an eternal night with full moons all over the place. Now permanently transformed into those horrible beasts, the Werewolves ravage the cosmos, making everyone loony.

Restriction: Use only in a game with Moons

Con: Werewolf cannot recycle moons.



WORM [O:GK] Moves The Cone Gerald Katz (Revision)

You have the power to tunnel. At game set-up, you may place your tokens among your bases in any way desired. As offensive player, after Challenge Cards are revealed, you may move the cone so that it points to any other planet or moon where your opponent has tokens, not necessarily in the defensive system. Conclude the challenge. As defensive player, after Challenge Cards are revealed, you may move the cone so that it points to any other planet in your system, regardless of whether or not you have tokens there, but also neither does your opponent. You may move the cone to and from moons in this way, but only to an empty moon or one where you have tokens. Alternatively, you may also move the cone to any foreign base that you have where your opponent does not, including moons. Conclude the challenge.
