I really like KoT, and love playing it with my kids. We thought that the promo Space Penguin looks really - um - cool, and would be a neat addition to the game. I was very disappointed to learn that he doesn't come with his own evolution cards, as these have added so much to the game and I can't imagine playing without them.

But then I realized that since the Monster evolution cards are kept separate from each other, it would be a relatively simple matter to create a custom set of evolutions for the Penguin. So, here is what I came up with.

"Dressed to Kill" - Permanent - When 3 or more claws are rolled, do 1 extra damage.
"Slippery When Wet" - Permanent - Can force attacker to re-roll 1 claw each turn.
"Polar Opposites" - Permanent - May turn 1 claw into a heart each turn.
"Chillax" - Permanent - Gain 1 XP whenever you buy a card.
"Cold Flippers, Warm Heart" - Temporary - You may heal in Tokyo.
"Frostbyte" - Temporary - All other Monsters are frozen - take another turn.
"Birds of a Feather" - Temporary - When another Monster gains at least 2 Power Cubes, you may do the same.
"The Emperor Strikes Back" - Temporary" - When attacked, deal 2 damage to attacker.

I know the Space Penguin is hard to come by, but if he ever does come into my possession, I'll be ready!

(This is the most time I've spent creating House Rules for game component that I will in all liklihood never own - must've been a slow day)

I like it. I'd like to see Iello use it. I am trying to get the Space Penguin too. Maybe then my wife will play.

I can't remember how many of each there are, but I was thinking Mutant since he could be a mutated penguin

Your evo cards are classic!

Hopefully iello listens to its fan base and decides to make their promotional items more available to the general public. Until then we can only dream...

Thanks. They've obviously not been playtested, and further tweaking might be required - but I'm quite happy with them as a start.

I can see potential timing questions regarding "Cold Flippers, Warm Heart" - do you have to play it before rolling, or do you have to roll the dice and then play it (before resolution)?

(I'm not sure it actually matters, but adding a "during the current turn" clause would allow either timing to be valid)

I see "Cold Flippers - Warm Heart" being played after the dice have been rolled.

Player may want to heal in Tokyo, but I wouldn't want him to commit to it in advance and then end up with no hearts.

Me to... the only "problem" is
that regular game has 2 robots, 2 invaders and 3 mutants
with brockenbar as invader will be 2,3,3

if we made brockenbar invader it will be 2,4,3... ¿To much invaders?.

if at least we know what this "race" will be for...

ill guess that both of these will be mutants?

"Meet Jack O'Lantern with its enormous pumpkin head, and Boogy Woogy the gigantic bogeyman! Those two new scary monsters come with their own sets of Evolution cards. This mechanic introduced by the Power Up expansion provides each monster with 8 square-shaped cards to mutate into an even more nightmarish version of itself!"

Why is brockenbar an invader and not a mutant? I think Space Penguin is invader more than brockenbar.
