Species rules 1

  1. 1. Species A Game of Bio Tech 4 Alien Species fighting for control of the planet. Species must gather resources to develop as a species and wipe out the other species while multiplying and taking control of the planet. Each species has a different set of characteristics and abilities which will give them specific advantages during the game when attacking, defending, or moving and when converting their resources. These qualities are defined on the Species card.
  2. 2. Initial Setup Each player is dealt a species card to select the species they will play as. It is possible for multiple players to have the same species. The board is a hexagonal grid covering the planet. It has resource slots to represent the resource gained by occupying that slot. The deck of resource cards is shuffled and placed out in order on the board. There are 3 resources – Food, Metal and Technology.
  3. 3. Species Members Players start with 3 members of their species. These are placed in the 3 slots beside the players home base. Players move to occupy resource slots to acquire resources. Players convert resources into new members of their species and bonus abilities.
  4. 4. Playing Players take turns to play. Order determined by rolling dice. At the beginning of a players turn the player acquires resources for all of their species members occupying resource slots. Ie 1 or more player pieces on a Food resource slot acquires one Food resource token. Players then either a) convert resources into species members and bonuses, or b) move species members, or c) attack another player. Each player controls their species members by Converting resources to generate new species members Moving species members to acquire resources Attacking another species in an adjacent square Defending against attacks from an adjacent square
  5. 5. Converting Resources Players can convert resources into new species members and bonus cards. A player can have at most 7 bonus cards – the costs of each bonus is written on their species card. Players convert resources into New species members – a new species member piece Attack bonus – adds 1 to each dice roll per species member when attacking Defense bonus – adds 1 to each dice roll per species member when defending Mobility bonus – allow species members to move an extra step when moving Evolution bonus – specific to each evolution card can be a combination of attack, defense and mobility combined with increased rate of new species member generation.
  6. 6. Species 1 A savage alien race determined to wipe out the others, considered to be both strong and aggresive. Attack focused. Cost of New Species Member 2 Food, 1 Metal, 1 Tech Cost of Attack Bonus +1 1 Food, 1 Metal, 1 Tech Cost of Defense Bonus +1 2 Food, 2 Metal, 2 Tech Cost of Mobility Bonus +1 Slot 3 Food, 1 Metal, 1 Tech Cost of Evolution Bonus 4 Food, 3 Metal, 4 Tech
  7. 7. Movement Each player can move 3 species member pieces each time it is their turn. Each species member normally moves to any adjoining slot not occupied by another player. When a player has mobility bonus cards each species member can move 1 extra slot per mobility card. Players can only move through slots unoccupied by other players. When a player trades resources for new species members these members are placed in any of the 3 home slots. Players can have at most 3 species members per slot.
  8. 8. Attack / Defense A player can attack another player in an adjacent slot. The outcome is determined by dice. The loser loses all their species members from the attack or defense slots. The total attack and defense values are determined by adding dice rolls per species member combined with attack and defense bonus cards. Draws are rerolled untill a winner occurs. The player attacking has 1 dice roll per species member in the attacking slot. If a player has an attack bonus card they have +1 added per card per species member on the slot. For the player defending they have 1 dice roll per species member on the attacked slot. If a player has a defense bonus card they have +1 added per card per species member on the slot.
  9. 9. Goal / Winning Condition Goal : To multiply and dominate the planet To defeat all other players until they have no species members on the board
  10. 10. Goal / Winning Condition Goal : To multiply and dominate the planet To defeat all other players until they have no species members on the board
