Solo Dice & Card game.
The player must defend and build up his Space colony.
Six sided dice are needed.
Tokens to indicate damage and power are needed.
Pen & paper to record Megacredit totals are needed.
The deck has 4 types of cards mixed in:
Events, Invaders, Defenders, and Structures.
You start with your base card in play.
The Base has the following attributes:
It can take 10 hits of Damage before being destroyed.
It has a built in laser turret: It attacks with one die every battle turn.
It generates 5 power points every turn.
A Base allows you to have two defenders.
You start with your base, zero Megacredits, and no cards.
END OF GAME
The game ends at the end of the turn when the last card has been drawn from the deck.
If your base is ever destroyed the game ends immediately and you lose with a score = 0.
Your score is equal to your Megacredit total at the end of the game.
Each turn has 5 Phases:
1. Space Karma Phase
2. Event Phase
3. Build Phase
4. Power Phase
5. Income Phase
SPACE KARMA PHASE
Draw 1 card.
If it is an Invasion or Event card it is resolved in Event Phase.
Otherwise, keep it in your hand.
Max hand size is 5 cards. Discard excess cards.
An Invasion or Event card drawn last phase is resolved now.
For Event cards just follow the instructions on the card.
Discard the Event card after it is resolved.
For Invasion cards are resolved through Battle Rounds.
In a Battle Round the Invader attacks, and your Defenders & Laser
Turrets attack once each.
Roll 1D6 for every level of Force an Invader or Defender has.
A roll of 1 will do one point of damage to the opposing side.
Use counters placed on the cards to record damage.
Each damage counter so placed reduces the cards Force by one point.
An Invader or Defender card reduced to 0 Force is destroyed.
Destroyed cards are discarded.
When the invaders inflict damage a random defender card will be hit first.
If there are no defender cards, Force domes will be attacked next.
Force Domes can take 3 Hits before being destroyed.
If all force domes are destroyed, Laser Turrets (Force = 1) are next.
If all Laser Turrets are destroyed, then the Base card will be attacked next.
The Base card can take 5 hits and it has a built in Laser turret that can
make a one die attack every round.
You may play one Structure card or one Defender card from your hand.
The played card is placed face-up on the table in front of you.
Note: You cannot have more Defender cards than your structure cards allow.
Excess are discarded.
You cannot play a structure if you canít provide it a power token this
turn in power phase.
If you did not play a card you may remove all the damage tokens on one of your cards.
Your Base and Solar Array cards generate power points.
Other Structure cards use up Power Points.
Some structures also need the presence of other structures to be maintained.
For example: Each Colony requires one power point plus the food output of one Agrodome.
Note: One Agrodome could not support 2 Colonies.
Place a Power Token on every structure that is able to meet all of its upkeep demands.
Some structures generate income.
If such a structure has a power token on it then it is able to generate all of
its income this turn.
Otherwise it generates no income.
Record all income generated from all structures.
At the end of this phase discard all Power tokens.
