PBF 22 was a crazy, chaotic and very interesting Cosmic Encounter game, so I thought to myself - "Hey, why can't we do it again?" And guess what - We are doing it again.

Seven aliens will use their ships, powers and Tech in order to rule the galaxy.

Stay tuned...

The game begins. Everybody research their Techs (each ship taken from planet A). Soon, there will be destiny...

Yee haw, here we go.

To my fellow ship-specialists: Shadow and I are the two aliens you'll want to mollify and be nice to. Especially me, as Shadow's best bet is to be ruthless no matter your pleas for mercy. But I, on the other hand, can pick my targets... just file that away in your vast alien memory banks.

Finally, allow me to sound the warning gong/bell/alarm/screecher about Converter and Reborn. These are tough powers, the heavyweights of our group. They should be contained; aiding them may prove to be your own downfall.

Very interesting, Sting. You are already employing the "You all better be nice to me or you'll pay!" strategy and the ever popular "Hey, look over there! Don't bother looking at me, I'm harmless." strategy. Classic.

While I advocate both of these strategies it does seem odd that you are using them at the same time. They seem to be in conflict. But, hey, you clearly have a brain the size of an insect so who can blame you for confusing one and all.

Reborn will launch 4 ships at the 3-colony Sting planet (whichever one Shadow targeted) and invites Shadow and Symbiote.

This would be a good opp for you to get rid of a crappy card, Sting.

Hmmm...so powerful I am, Sting? All I've got here is Hoshi Station. Do you need power converters?

Just thought I would warn the universe that there are some very nasty flares in play. What surprises will we run into? Shadow may indeed be ruthless...his flare is, too...so watch out...

Hey Reborn, I might look like a bug to you but you look like a... a... well let's just say that the galaxy's suns should refuse to shine on your anatomy out of a sense of decency for the rest of us with eyes.

I call Observer to join me in foiling these offensive Rebornuctive Organs.

Also, as a gesture of good will, I will not use my power against Shadow.

Very kind of you Sting. However, I would note it feels a little bit hollow as you would have still lost your ship and I would have lost none.

Fellow aliens, while my devotion to guerilla warefare means that I will be sending your ships to the warp, I will choose how harshly you will be affected in the attack based on your friendliness towards me.

Target Sting A for my power

Symbiote is intrigued by the actions so far, but not enough to stick their necks out yet

Symbiote will stay home

It's over. The Defense wins.

Reborn loses four ships to the warp. He uses his power to draw four cards from the deck (I'll leave a short window for a possible Cosmic Zap on that).

Observer gains four rewards and draws four [R]'s (I'll leave a short window for a possible Ionic Gas on that).

Moving on to Sting's turn.

I'll assume that each of you want to keep researching your Techs. This is a good time to tell me your plans about the next encounters (if you didn't do so already).

Destiny will be coming shortly.

Everybody research.

Sting draws a Purple destiny and will encounter Observer.

Shadow, where do you take Observer's ship from?

Sting, you may give me your orders about Launch and Alliance or post it here. Observer, you may give me your orders about inviting allies.

Ah, Observer my friend, this is a good opportunity for us to advance. I'm going to "go green" with the hope you'll also see the benefit in striking a deal.

Launch 1 ship from Sting B and 1 ship from Sting C, aim the Gate at Observer E.

No allies.
