sprout support expansion
WHAT'S it About?
Trapped in a strange galaxy far from home, the Astronauts have been busy at work, building robots to search for Ship Parts and making new friends to help them. Meet the Interplanetary Sprout Alliance, the Astronauts new allies and the Gherkins mortal enemies!
Attack of the Intergalactic Gherkins Sprout Support Expansion brings new game mechanics with 9 new cards, including two new characters to allow play for up to six people. The pack contains 20 cards in total, including an additional Gherkin Attacks card and four more Ship Parts for five and six player games.
WHAT's IN THE BOX?
As with the base game, there are three main action card types in the expansion that HELP a player, HINDER a player or opponent, or allow you to MOVE around the four planets. Some cards both HELP & HINDER.
The Sprout Support Expansion allows more strategic play once the base game has been mastered, including:
Play card combinations in sequence to gain an advantage
Sacrifice cards to steal Ship Parts
View an opponent's hand in order to predict gameplay
Play card combinations in sequence to gain the advantage
A player could now use a Black Hole card to move a Ship Part to the planet counter-clockwise to them, before playing an Asteroid Belt card to move counter-clockwise to collect it (against the traditional direction of movement) without other players predicting this.
