Cosmic Encounter

A game of galactic diplomacy and domination


Cosmic Enounter is a game of strategy and deal making on a galactic scale. Unique Alien races with potent powers battle it out to be the first to 5 foreign colonies. You will make alliances, negotiate deals, fight over planets, use mysterious artifact (cards). But there is a catch, the universe is a fickle place and you don't control your destiny - who you encounter each turn will be random.

I will be running the base game as it's what I have a physical copy of. Please be aware that the game can flow very smoothly when no one interferes but players do have chances to interfere throughout their opponents turns. A previous game ran on the site went for about 3 months so be prepared for that sort of commitment.

In xofelf's hand:
Fido FlareIf you are not the Fido, force your opponent to take the top card of the discard pile and add it to their hand, then draw a card from the cosmic deck.

Use this card as a main player, before encounter cards are chosen in the planning phase.



If you are the Fido, you may collect all the encounter cards discarded from the encounter and use your power for each of them one by one.

Use this card as any player, after encounter cards are discarded in the resolution phase.


Warpish FlareIf you are not the Warpish, add 1 to your sides total for each ship you have in the warp.

Use this card as a main player, after you reveal encounter cards in the reveal phase.



If you are the Warpish, force your opponent to subtract 1 from their sides strength for each ship they have in the warp.

In the discard pile:

Tripler FlareIf you are not the Tripler, you may divide your opponents attack card by 3, rounding up, before other modifers are applied.

Use ths card as a main player, after your opponent reveals an attack card of 15 or greater in the reveal phase.



If you are the Tripler, you triple attack cards of 13 or less.

Use this card as a main player, when you reveal an attack card in the reveal phase.


Reincarnator FlareIf you are not the Reincarnator, you may give this card to any player other than the Reincarnator who has lost an encounter or failed to make a deal. They immediately discard their Alien card and draw a new one that is allowed in the current setup and with no game setup effects.

Rules blatantly ripped off inspired by Korina's from various Mafia and Mish Mash games. I like his formatting and have no shame.

Follow the spirit of the rules, not just the letter, and I reserve the right to change them at any time.

CONTENT RULES
  1. Follow the site rules.
  2. Keep it civil
  3. #8000FF is my colour. Don't use it.
  4. Don't edit your posts. If you have to make it clear what changes were made.
  5. Don't directly quote mod communications, real or faked. You can't use my pm with your hand to prove you have it for sake of a negotiation.
  6. Post in a style that is easy to read (no cryptography, bbcode abuse, size under 75, etc).
  7. You can talk about this game elsewhere but if you are dealing, either officially (a Negotiation) or unofficially do it in the main thread.
  8. Play to your win condition everyone, that's where the fun of the game is.


DEADLINES, ACTIVITY and V/LA
  1. Players will have 48 hours to respond to a game phase on their turn. When players take an action 24 hours will be added to give other players chance to respond. I will reduce this to 24/24 if people feel the game is going too slow
  2. If you miss a deadline on your turn you will be prodded and have 24 hours before I start looking for a replacement.
  3. If you miss a deadline on an opponents turn it will be read as passing with no interference.
  4. An official Negotiation will have 24 hours to be resolved before it counts as being unsuccessful.
  5. You can go V/LA in thread of via PM. The clock will be 72/24 while you are V/LA.
  6. If you are going to be V/LA for game actions feel free to PM me clear instructions as to what actions you wish to take.
  7. If you are going to be V/LA for an extended period of time or have no internet access, please ask for a replacement via PM instead.


GAME ACTIONSNormally I'd list how to do game actions here but there are a lot of different ones, so I don't think it's worth it. Just bold what you want to do and I'll look at more structured ways of communicating if that doesn't work.

If I think it counts, it counts. If you wanna play around with edge cases don't be disappointed if I read it the wrong way.


If I've missed something or need me to respond to something feel free to ask me bolded in thread or via pm.

Rulebook and useful videosYou may find the following resources useful. In particular what I post here will mostly be my version of the quick reference at the back of the offical rules, along with breakdown of the decks.

Rulebook
How to play video
Longer playthrough video (50 mins but I found it good fun)
Previous game thread on this site


Set upEach player begins with 5 planets with 4 of their ships on them, and no foreign colonies.

Each player is dealt two flare cards, and the two alien cards corresponding to the two flare cards. Each player will chose an alien and the other will be discarded. Aliens are colour coded (Easy, Medium, Hard) to indicate difficulty.

The flare cards are then shuffled into the cosmic deck, plus extra flare cards at random to bring it up to 10 flare cards if there are fewer than 5 players. Each player is dealt a hand of 8 cards from the cosmic deck.

First player is chosen at random.


Game FlowStart Turn: The current player becomes the offense. If they have no encounter cards (attack, negotiate or morph) in their hand they may discard their hand and draw a new hand of 8.

Regroup: The offense may retrieve one ship from the warp.

Destiny: The offense draws a card from the destiny deck, determining who they will have an encounter with. That player becomes the defense. The offense and defense are the main players.

Launch: The offense chooses a planet in the target system determined by the destiny card and launches between 1 and 4 ships at it from their planets.

Alliance: First the offense and then the defense may request allies. You may request only specific players and both sides may request the same player. Once both main players have made offers the others may choose if they accept any offers. You can make unofficial deals to organise an alliance. An ally places between 1 and 4 ships helping their side.

Planning: The offense and defense both choose an encounter card from their hand and play it face down. If at any point the defense needs to play an encounter card but doesn't have any they may play any number of cards from their hand and discard the rest, before drawing a new hand of 8 - this is most likely to happen during the Planning phase.

Reveal: The chosen encounter cards are revealed.

Resolution: The encounter is resolved as follows:
Attack + Attack: The strongest side (number of ships+attack card value) wins. The losing side loses all their ships to the warp. If the offense wins, then all offensive ships including allies move into the planet, If the defense wins defensive allies get a reward of 1 card from the cosmic deck or 1 ship returned from the warp for each ship they contributed.
Attack + Negotiate: The attack card wins. The losing side loses all their ships to the warp. The loser (but not their allies) gets compensation from the winner in the form of one random card from their hand for each ship lost. If the offense wins, then all offensive ships including allies move into the planet, If the defense wins defensive allies get a reward of 1 card from the cosmic deck or 1 ship returned from the warp for each ship they contributed.
Negotiate + Negotiate: The main players have 24 hours to come to an agreement which can include cards from hand and/or moving ships onto planets they control. Failure to do so causes both sides to loose 3 ships to the warp.

Following resolution surviving allies are returned to their owners planets in any way they wish.


If this was the offense's first encounter, and they still have encounter cards, they may have a second encounter, starting from the Regroup phase, if they won a fight or successfully negotiated a deal.


Game EndThe game ends the moment any player has 5 foreign colonies. Multiple players can win.


InterferenceMany cards and alien abilities allow you to interfere in the proceedings. These powers will specify when they can be used and if they are mandatory or not. Many alien powers feature the keyword use which are important for determining whether some cards can interfere with them. Aliens that have lost 3 of their home worlds have also lost their powers until they regain some of their home worlds.

If there is ever confusion, specific rules trump general rules and effects are resolved offense -> defense -> other players clockwise from offense.


Types of Card in the Cosmic DeckENCOUNTER CARDS
Attack: Attack cards have a number which is how much strength they contribute. The lowest is 0, the highest is 40 and most are in the 0-20 range.
Negotiate: An alternative to attacking. Compensation vs an attack, or a chance to negotiate.
Morph: Copies an opponents encounter card.

OTHER CARDS
Reinforcement: Can be played after encounter cards are revealed to add strength to one side. Play as a main player or ally only.
Artifact: A variety of effects with their own timings and player restrictions that allow you to interfere in the game.
Flare: Powerful effects with the own timings and player restrictions. Each card has two effects, depending on whether or not the flare corresponds to your alien race. A flare returns to your hand after playing it unless otherwise stated. We are using a variant where you can play multiple flares per encounter, however each individual flare can still only be played once per encounter.

3*Special - Choose the player with (the most cards in hand/most foreign colonies/least ships in the warp), breaking ties to the left. Have an encounter with that player in their home system.


Point it out if you think I've missed something obvious. If you are ever unsure where something comes from it's from the rulebook.

I am a strong believer that area tags are underused.

Looks like everyone has signed up. Feel free to /replace to be added to the waiting list. I'll be sorting everything out in a few (2-3) hours because I will be having dinner soon and don't want to get interrupted.

Please go check out the first post to see there is anyway I can improve the way I'm laying out game state.

Also, everyones Alien is now confirmed

Aliensthe worst is the Shadow who removes others' ships
Allomancer is the Warpish who adds ships in warp to total
Farren is the Chosen who takes new encounter card
T-Bone is the Miser who gets second hand
xofelf is the Parasite who joins alliance at will


Spoiler: Full Alien Abilities
ShadowRemoves others' ships
Medium Difficulty


You have the power to Execute. You must use your power to send one enemy ship from any colony to the warp whenever a destiny card other than your colour is drawn. You must choose a ship of the player the destiny card corresponds to, but if it is wild you can choose any player, not only the one the offense chooses.

Use this power as any player, when the destiny card is revealed in the destiny phase.


WarpishAdds ships in warp to total
Hard Difficulty


You have the power of Necromancy. You must use your power to add 1 to your sides strength for each ship in the warp.

Use this power as a main player, after you reveal an attack card during the reveal phase.


ChosenTakes new encounter card
Easy Difficulty


You have the power of Divine Intervention. You may use this power to draw three cards from the cosmic deck. You may choose an encounter card from the 3 and discard the rest. You may replaces your encounter card with the chosen one, discarding the previous one. If both the new and the old encounter cards are attack cards you may choose to add them together or replace the old card.

Use this power as a main player, after revealing encounter cards in the reveal phase.


MiserGets second hand
Easy Difficulty


Game Start: You are dealt 2 8-card hands. Choose one to be your hand and one to be your hoard.

You have the power to Hoard. You may use this power to use a card from your hoard instead of your hand any time you would play a card.

Other players cannot look at or draw from your hoard. If there are no encounter cards left in your hoard, you may reveal it, discard it, and draw a new 8 card hoard.


ParasiteJoins alliance at will
Easy Difficulty


You have the power to Infest. Unless another effect prevents alliances, you may use this power to ally with another player whether they invite you or not.

Use this power as not a main player, during the alliance phase.


Starting hands are going out now. I hope to be able to start this off tomorrow.

Also, if someone has a card in hand that may be relevant at that time would you prefer for me to pm to get confirmation if you are using it or just wait for everyone to pass?

I think I'd rather you ask us directly to tell you if we're gonna use it or not.

Just cuz this isn't an LSG doesn't mean I can't build alliances. Just look, you don't get a choice, you must ALL be my friend.

It'd realistically have to be everyone to avoid giving away hand data. I think directly contacting people probably makes more sense. I just wanted to make sure people didn't mind a decent amount of pm spam

This will be my Cosmic Encounter debut. I'll try my best, but please feel very free to DM me any time you need clarity or if I don't seem to be understanding anything. Spam isn't an issue fmpov.

Farren has given me a list of auto-uses on some cards in his hand. I find this a wonderful idea and will make sure to try and implement it for anyone who wants
