Dice & Card game for 2+ players.
Based on the Stargate Universe.
Stargate is a copyrighted, licensed property.
This is merely a fan site.
The Game ends when there are no cards left to draw from the Mission Deck.
At the End of the game each player calculates his Victory Score (VS):
VS = TMP – PLK
TMP = Total Mission Points of all Missions you have successfully completed.
PLK = Personnel under your command that have been Lost or Killed.
(Main Characters are worth 2 PLK each)
10-sided Dice are needed.
There are 3 common decks:
Personnel are the Characters you control.
There are two types of Personnel:
1. Main Characters
2. Support Personnel
In a Team, Support Personnel are always lost/killed before Main Characters.
There are 2 Basic Stats in the Game:
1. Brains (Logic, Intelligence, Observation, Imagination, Intuition)
2. Combat (Brawn, Fighting, Tactics, Shooting, Courage, Leadership)
Every Personnel will have a score of 0-3 in each stat.
Missions and Challenges (MC) will require a Dice Test in one or both Stats.
There are 4 Skills:
1. Science (Physics, Astronomy, Mathematics, Chemistry, Computers)
2. Lore (Archeology, Literature, Languages, History)
3. Medical (Medicine, First Aid, Biology, Genetics)
4. Communication (Diplomacy, Charisma, Empathy, Presence, Persuasion)
Personnel with high Brains will have one or more Skills.
Some Missions and Challenges (MC) will require the
Team to have a specific Skill to succeed.
Some MC will require double or Triple levels of Skill.
For example, a Mission may require Lore X2 meaning that at least 2
Personnel on the Team must have Lore to complete the Mission.
There are 2 types of Event cards:
Challenges are played against other players in Challenge Phase.
Action cards temporarily give skills, increase stats, and provide other benefits.
Players roll high on 1D10 to see who goes first.
Players take turns.
Each turn has 6 Phases:
Draw the top card of the Mission Deck.
Put it face up in front of you.
This is the Active Mission.
Your Team must have 5 Personnel cards.
If your Team has less than 5 Members, you may recruit members from 2 places:
1. Your Reserve Pile
2. The top card of the Personnel Deck
You may move personnel back and forth from your Reserve to your Team.
Draw 3 cards from the Event Deck and put them in your hand.
Max hand size is 7 cards. Discard excess cards.
One opponent (nearest left) may play one Challenge card against you.
Resolve the Challenge as you would resolve a Mission in Mission Phase.
Your Team attempts the Active Mission.
The Mission may require a Brains Test or Combat Test or Both.
To resolve a Test make two rolls and compare them:
To the first roll add the Stat level of the Mission. This is the Mission Total.
To the second roll add the combined Stat level of all the Team Personnel.
This is the Team Total.
The Player may play (discard) Action cards to further increase his Team Total.
If the Team total is equal or higher the Test is a success. If less, the Test is a Failure.
If the Team succeeds at both Tests and has the required Skills, the
Mission is a success. If not, the Mission is a Failure.
If the Mission was a success, put the Mission card into your Victory Pile.
If the Mission was a Failure, discard the Mission card and one Random Team Member.
This Personnel is said to be Lost/Killed.
You may have a Maximum of 3 cards in your Reserve Pile (discard extras).
