You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Space Amoebas - solitaire and non-solitaire

Because of the popularity of the solitaire scenarios we added another one involving alien empires. On top of that we added a solitaire Space Amoeba scenario. That brings the total solitaire scenarios to 5. Each plays very much like the in person game and there are three really different flavors - Doomsday Machine, Alien Empire, and now multiplying Space Amoebas. By the way, the new technologies in the game have been incorporated into the solitaire scenarios.

Of course, since we were including so many Space Amoeba counters in the game, we wanted to incorporate them into the non-solitaire game. You can now add them into your games against your friends. You are still trying to get at each other, but you can't ignore the Space Amoebas either. Do you try to eradicate them early? Do you just try to keep them at bay while you go for your opponent? They can be a pain and are a nice twist to any scenario.

There is not an offical scenario that pits the players against all of these threats. However if you want to play against the NPA's you can always add the 3 Doomsday Machine Counters to the Deep Space Counters that you are drawing from and we included 3 counters that can be used to spawn Space Amoebas in Deep Space. That should give even the most experienced player a run for their money. The Space Amoebas are a real pain to deal with once they have spread out a few times as there are quickly a lot of them.

And you could each control an alien race for a further twist (It has been done and was quite fun.. but expect to add a few more hours to the gametime) devil
