Special Rules

Setup

Remove the Popularity Contest card from the deck. Each player begins play with 10 random Popularity Cards and 2 random Cliques. The remaining Cliques are Undecided.

Undecided Cliques

When a Clique is or becomes Undecided, it is in play, but is not controlled by either player. (It is recommended that it be placed in a pile between the two players.)

Popularity Check

The text 'Popularity Check X: Do THIS; otherwise, do THAT' means 'Roll a twenty-sided die X times. If the number rolled matches the number on any Popularity Card you control on at least one roll, do THIS. If not, do THAT'.
For example, if a card said "Popularity Check 2: Win the game; otherwise, lose the game", you would roll a 20-sided die 2 times. If either roll matched one of your Popularity Cards, you would win the game. If neither roll matched, you would lose the game.

Cards Played Per Turn

You may play 2 cards per turn, in any combination of thing and action. Remember that using a Thing's Action counts as one of your cards per turn.

Main Deck

Popularity Contest
Action
When the deck is exhausted and reshuffled, shuffle this card into the deck. If you draw this card, you must play it immediately. The player who drew this card makes a Popularity Check 1 for every Undecided Clique. If he succeeds for that Clique, he gains control of it; otherwise, his opponent gains control of it. The game then ends, and the player with the most Cliques under his control wins.
