Fear and ignorance in Alpha Complex, the world of the Paranoia RPG. Clamber up the clearance hierarchy while shooting and betraying your fellow Troubleshooters at every opportunity, forever under the watchful eye of The Computer. Trust the Computer. The Computer is your friend.

Special Rules

Clearance

Clearances progress from Red to Ultraviolet. Troubleshooters may only have a single Clearance, and should destroy all but the newest if they have more than one in play. Those with no Clearance card are assumed to be Red.

Mutant Powers

After playing a Mutant Power card, the Troubleshooter who played it may choose to take it from the discard pile and put it back into his or her hand.

Termination

When a Troubleshooter is Terminated, they discard their hand and have their non-Clearance Things hygienically destroyed. They are then replaced with a Clone of themselves, and may draw five cards.

Clones

Each Troubleshooter has five backup Clones - when those five have all gone, that Troubleshooter is out of the game.
