I'm back...and my itty-bitty living space needs clean-up...I mean, conquering, again...

We found a bit more space in here this time, so this will be an
eight player game this time...

Don't worry about running out of cards, because
the Cosmic deck will be extended with the "large groups" cards. Cosmic quakes scare me sometimes...though I've never seen one, I've heard about them...

Also,
technology cards will be in play. I don't know where this "cosmic technology" came from...maybe we'll all discover the answer in time.

So, we've got four players already interested, who else wants to fight for my itty-bitty living space?
Post here or geekmail me to get in!

Here we go, allow me to introduce all of you once again.

First we have
paedia who was built into a Cyborg. Let's see if he's the final version, or if there are still gremlins in his programming...

Then we have
Domfluff who is a notorious Invader. You never know when he'll pop up and ruin your day.

We've also got
DrBrewhaha who has become a Graviton, wielding the great power of gravity, because it's the law!

And we have
CBpegasus, who is a fearful Gorgon. They will render you motionless and stiff with a single breath...

Then, we've got
Rubric who has become a notable Prophet. His latest prophecy is that he will be master of the universe, but who knows if he is right...?

We also have
rjburns3 who is an expert Converter. Converting lead to gold? Pfft...he turned my lamp into a breakfast cereal with little effort. It was tasty too!

We've also got
Hankroyd who is a Miser...hoarding cards like it's no one else's business. He probably won't even give them back to me...

Finally, we have
homertve, who is a Mercenary. He fights for great reward.

So...fight for this itty-bitty living space already!

Why aren't we starting? Everything is ready. If no one has a card for start turn I believe we go on to research tech right? I already know I'll research my tech with one ship from a 4-ship colony.

Sorry about that, a few technical issues, we're underway now.

All players research their technologies. (This is what I assume for Encounter 1, send me COs/geekmails for further technology research/completion and so forth.)

Cyborg begins the game with a Brown destiny, and will encounter Converter.

Go ahead and launch and call for allies.

Hello my Converting friend. I would love to visit your fair city with my negotiating delegation of 4. Would you receive us in kindness?

4 ships (evenly) to Converter A. No allies.

EDIT: remove stray comma.

Encounter cards are selected.

Prophet plays Super Prophet, predicting a victory for Cyborg. Any zaps on this?

Hey Cyborg, how about a colony on Converter A for a colony on Cyborg A?

Love, the Converter civilization.

Declaring themselves to be omniscient, the Prophets set forth into the promised vacuum of space to seek a new home in the interstellar wilderness. Are these Prophets false? Only the Eons will judge.


Prophet will also take a colony on Converter A, with 3 ships taken evenly from home planets.

Deal complete. Prophet also lands on Converter A due to his successful prediction.

All players research their technologies again. (Keep those COs coming!)

Cyborg's next destiny is Yellow. He'll have an encounter with Graviton.

Go ahead and launch and call for allies.

And so it begins. We already have the super Prophet. Time for someone to Zap that and quick. Perhaps I will. So my advice to Prophet, if you want to keep your flare, is don't interfere with any of my encounters.

Before Cybooger invites allies Graviton plays Wild Trader to get a card from Cy-man.
