This deck is under construction. Anyone is welcome to contribute - check the talk page to find out more.

Humans, Goa'uld, Replicators - they all fight their way through the galaxies, each trying to achieve their own end.

This is very, very far from being complete, and it probably won't be until it is used as the start for an actual Dvorak game.
Notably missing: the Stargate!

Special Rules


Most Characters has a Goal to achieve. If a player controls at least one Character which has a Goal, and fulfills the requirements described in the "Goal:" fields of all Character cards they control, they win.

Actions and Things

All cards which are not Actions are Things.
A turn consists in drawing a card, playing up to one Action and one Thing, then discarding cards down to five.
During their turn, instead of playing a Thing, a player can always chose to destroy one Thing they control instead.
The effects described in a field labeled "Action:", "Thing:", "Action&Thing:" or "Action/Thing" of a Thing a player controls may be used by that player instead of, respectively: playing an Action, playing a Thing, playing a Thing and an Action, playing a Thing or playing an Action.


At the beginning of the game, place all tokens in a separate draw deck. The available number of tokens of a given type is considered to be unbounded - if you don't have enough, create some more! When a card instruct you to create a token, you may look through the token draw deck to find it.

Unknown Cultures

Some cards come from remote planets with different cultures. Such cards may only be played by a player who controls Daniel Jackson, Doctor Rodney McKay, a Goa'uld, or a Replicator.
