Invader Zim is attempting to destroy the Earth! Dib must stop him! Gaz is going to play video games!
There are two subcategories of things in addition to generic things.
Persons are goal cards. Each person has a unique victory condition. The player that controls a person whose condition is satisfied wins the game. Unless some card says otherwise, a player can only control one person at a time.
Alien Tech functions like any other thing, but some cards affect only Alien Tech instead of generic things.
In addition to the cards, you will need a coin for flipping.
When a thing is destroyed all things on that thing (including all things on those things) are destroyed as well. For example, if The PAK is on Dib, Dib is on The Skool,
and The Skool is destroyed, all three are destroyed. (Since The PAK is destroyed, it's ability can't be used.)
This deck has been partially tested, but never thoroughly. It seems to play alright, if a little slowly. Currently, too many cards are focused on only one goal and on destroying cards.
Currently there are several cards I'd like to add, but I don't really know what to do with them:
- Lawn Gnomes
- The Tallest
- The Massive
- Mortos der Soulstealer
- The Spooky Chihuahua
- Robot Parents
- Brain Leech (Is that what it was called?)
- The "Resisty"
- Plague of Babies
- The Guidey Chippy Thingy
- Shunk Wugga
- Saucer Morons
- And many other things I missed...
Feel free to add new cards (especially those above) but any changes to existing cards should be discussed. Also, please try to maintain the style of the cards.
