Hey guys, just a quick question over the use of Force Field and its use before/after Foreign Aid alliances.

Can Force Field be used before a Foreign Aid alliance is forged (thus the card can't be 'gifted') - or can it only be used after the alliance has been forged (and so the card is 'gifted' - and accepted - before ships are sent away).

One of our players tried to effectively nerf the whole deal so that a card could not be transferred, while it was argued that FF can only be played after alliances are made, and until the 'transaction' is complete, there is technically no alliance yet.

It led to a, let's say, passionate debate about it. What say you?

A) Force Field can only be played once an Alliance with Foreign Aid is complete (main player gets +1 card from ally)


B) Force Field can be played before the Foreign Aid is complete (main player does not get card or option to ally)

Thanks in advance for your input

Guess the games in my uberbadge!
My favorite game is Cosmic Encounter.
Force Field is played after the alliances are all fully formed, so it cannot stop Foreign Aid from occurring.
