Played a game last night with cards from all the expansions and a debate came up when the Plague card was played. Is there a confirmation on what all cards can be affected by Plague, such as morphs, retreats, kickers, rifts, or intimidates? Arguments were made for both sides, even ones against discarding both a negotiate and an attack, since they're both encounter cards. (Even that it states on the cards itself to do both.) The "etc" at the end of the card is what made it ambiguous.

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

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

It's one of every *type*. Attacks and Negotiates are different types. You could say that "encounter card" is a "super-type" that includes the types Attack, Negotiate, Morph, and Retreat.

dixit Cosmodex 2.0:

card types: As of Cosmic Eons, the card types in this edition of Cosmic Encounter are attack, morph, negotiate, reinforcement, artifact, flare, destiny, tech, rift, kicker, hazard, schizoid, space station, intimidate, retreat, and essence. "Encounter card" is not a card type, but rather a special category or collection of four card types: attack, negotiate, retreat, and morph.

It should be noted that Tech, Space Station, Hazard, Schizoid, and Essence cards are not affected by the Plague because they are not cards in your hand.

Right; as well as destiny cards.

At least all of these are not cards in your hand today. I have a feeling that one day some alien will come along that puts weird cards in his hand and/or other players' hands. At that point it will be good to understand that all of these card types are "non-encounter cards."
