Special Rules

Things

There are 3 types of things: Game Things, Mods and Real World Things. If a player draws a Game Thing from the deck they place it in the centre of the table and draw another card. Only 1 Mod can be in play at once, playing a Mod destroys the Mod currently in play. All non Game Things have an Action Value (AV) which is some number from 1 to 10.

Health

Every player has 10 health points.

Armour

Players can get armour which act as extra health points. When a player takes damage half of the damage is taken by the armour, the other half is inflicted on the player. You may only ever have 1 armour card.

Being Killed

If a player is reduced to 0 health they are killed and the player that killed them gets 1 frag. The killed player places their active weapon card (if any) into the centre of the table, and discards all Game Thing they have along with their hand. They then draw a new hand of 5 cards.

Default Weapon

All players are considered to have a weapon that does damage 1.

Following Fire

If a weapon has Following Fire then a player may make as many attacks with that weapon as they like during their turn.

Cards per Turn

Players can play as many cards and take as many actions per turn as they like. Actions can also be spent for the following effects, with some restrictions.

Action: Attack an Opponent (Once per Turn)

To attack an opponent a player announces the fact an plays a card face down, opponent does like wise. The cards are then revealed. If the attacker's card AV is greater the defender's card AV then the defender is hit. The defender loses health points equal to the damage of the attacker's active weapon. If a player doesn't play a card their base AV is 0.

Action: Change Weapon (Once per Turn)

A Player may change their active weapon card for another they control.

Action: Pick Up Game Things

A player may gain control of a Game Thing by discarding a card from their hand. If the Game Thing picked up is a weapon then the player may make that card their active weapon which doesn't count as that player's Changing Weapon action.
