hello,

I think about one thing...

If a player doesn't pay attention and his 3 Bionts are gone in Organisms he doesn't own... 3 Foreign gene...

Game over...

He will not get back them, because he get no organism in his tableau pool so, no HGT... And HGT works only if we have it for one of our organisms... So he earn 3 points and game over he can leave the table !

OK, he wasn't smart... but it can happen...

I miss something ?

Living rules, E6:

Quote:
You have this Ability for all your Bionts if any of your Microorganisms, or Microorganisms you reside in (as a Foreign Gene or Endosymbiont), have the HGT icon.

You can still buy mutations for or promote the organisms you reside in. These can change the situation.

No, you can make purchases for your host, including a mutation with HGT. There might be other possible strategies with red queen that I haven't had enough coffee yet to think of.

EDIT: ninja'd

Once I could recite whole episodes of Dexter's Laboratory.

You earn trophic points if the organism goes macro. It is not impossible you come in 2nd.

You could possible even come up with a score line that puts you in first.

Edit: Not to mention the organism dies because of events or Darwin rolls.
