Yeah, this was a tough one to write in the limited space available.
First, you only get caught up in a twister if you are carrying the memory eraser. Obviously something about this alien technology attracts the tornado. If you are not carrying the eraser then nothing happens.
Now, if the twister happens you just shuffle and redeal the draw pile and time line, but without flipping any cards. You don't add the eraser in because you are holding it so it isn't in the draw pile or time line.
I hope that helps! Good luck getting Blorg home again...
Yes, now I fully understand it, and yes it makes sense.
By the way, I'm amazed of how you were able to do this complex and complete game with only 9 cards!!
