Hi.

I have a question about Force Field artifact. It says:
Stops Allies. Play after alliances are formed to cancel the alliances of any or all players. Canceled allies return their ships to any of their colonies.

Situation is like this:
Players A and B are the offense and defense. Player C and D are offense allies. Players E, F and G are defense allies. At the end of alliance forming, player G plays Force Field. Can he:
1. Cancel all alliances of player A, or player B or both.
2. Cancel allince between players A and C and between players B and E and F

Best regards
Tomek

He can stop any number of players he wants. In your example it would be reasonable to kick out only players C and D, but he can also kick out all other players besides himself.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

And he can even kick out himself, in addition, or instead.

If C, D, E, F, and G are all allies, there are 31 possible ways to play Force Field.

No, I said "oh, brother," not "go hover."

Or 63 ways if one of those players is Yin-Yang and he's on both sides. Since the card cancels alliances (rather than "allies") I would think you could treat Yin-Yang's two alliances independently. Canceling one would not affect the other, any more than canceling Lunatic's alliance would make him stop being a main player.

This concludes this test of the Emergency Nitpick System.
