Special Rules

Points

There are three types of points in the game: Psi points, Military points, and Influence Points.

Psi points are found by totaling up the cornervalues of the Psi Research cards under your control and adding an extra point for every Toy Soldier you've managed to recruit.

Military points are found by totaling up the cornervalues of the Robot cards under your control and adding an extra point for every Toy Soldier you've managed to recruit.

Influence points are found by totaling up the cornervalues of the Media cards under your control.

Building the Robots

To play a Robot card, you must have its required parts under your control, and send them to the discard pile when you play the Robot.

Toy Soldiers

You can tell how many Toy Soldiers you have by totaling the cornervalues of the Toy Soldier cards under your control. A Toy Soldier card with a cornervalue of 7 represents a group of seven Toy Soldiers.

Music

Music cards determine which Doctor Steel track all the in-play Toy Soldiers are listening to, and affects the game in numerous ways. There can only be one Music card in play at any one time: when you play a new one, the old one is destroyed.

Psi Research and the Alien Illuminati

When you play a Psi Research card of a certain level, one of the previous level must already be in play, though it can be in play under any player (unless, of course, it's a level one card). For example, if you play a level five Psi Research card, at least one level four Psi Research card must already be in play. If you ever end up with a Psi Research card which hasn't got one of the previous level to 'support' it, it is destroyed as well.

You cannot play a Psi Research card if an identical Psi Research card is already in play.

The Alien Illuminati do not take kindly to we humans trying to crack their codes, however. Higher-level Psi Research cards have an Alien Illuminati Countdown - abbreviated to AIC - on them. A counter is placed on the card at the end of each turn they're in play, and when the number of counters on them equals the AIC, they are destroyed.
