Act Three! Everybody Dies!
So this game is not mainly a co-op?
Just some alternative rules to have a co-op mode? Or what?
I've not acquired the game yet or read a rules book, so I don't know.
But I thought it was supposed to be, and I was really looking forward to a Sierra Madre, specifically co-operative game.
Please don't tell me co-op is just some side version of the game.
The main page says "cooperative play"
I wouldn't say it's a "side version." I would say there's two ways to play it. Competitive and cooperative. One puts the parasites in control of the players and the goal is to have the most VPs at the end of the game. The other puts the parasites in the control of the game rules and the goal is to have macroorganisms by the end of the game. That's it. There's no other differences.
