Notes

Since no limitation is specified, you may use this action to build from your hand or directly from the Market.

"Any park" means your park and those of your competitors, so the upgrade being "cast in wax" can be in your own park.

If you have a store that also has themes, you pay for each requirement separately. If you choose to close the store instead of paying for one requirement, you can choose not to pay the other requirements too, since closing a closed attraction has no further effect.

Changed Anonymous Complaint rule text.

Previously "close all ride attractions", now limited to "a type of ride attraction".

The original effect proved to be a bit more harsh than some players expected (especially those who built all-ride parks).

The new effect is limited to one type of ride attraction, without saying specifically "thrill ride" or "leisure ride", which means it can expand to work with future theme packs that include other types of rides without needing to be changed again.

Notes

Project Management

This event offers two separate options, each of which is optional. You can choose to use only one, or the other, or both.

This means it is possible to discard a blueprint if you wish, without being forced to take another.

 

Updates

Original printings of this card have a small variation in the wording of Project Management. It was previously written as:

  • "You may draw three Blueprint cards and choose one to keep. You may discard a Blueprint card you own." 

  Please use this wording, from the current version of the card, if there is any dispute about the intention:

  • "You may draw up to three Blueprint cards then choose one to keep. You may discard a blueprint you own." 

The change to the first sentence allows the card to still be useful in the case when the Blueprint deck has fewer than three cards remaining. This was the intended functioning of the card, and wasn't expressed precisely enough in the original printing.

The change to the second sentence doesn't change the meaning. The wording was adjusted to bring it into the line with improvements in the wording guidelines for card rules.

Notes

Renovation

The effect doesn't stack with itself. You don't get half of half price if you play two copies of Renovation at once. This is because each one gives a discount based on the marked coin price, which is the number printed on the blue price tag on the card. 

If you play two copies, you simply have two different ways to get half price.

The same goes for other effects that give half price. You can have multiple ways of accessing half price builds, through different abilities such as Building Contractor, but they can't be combined together.

The half-price discount only applies to cards that are priced in coins. Prices marked in Alien Influence or any other currency are not reduced.

You can use Renovation on any of your closed attractions, no matter how they came to be closed, whether it be through the event itself, another event played by a competitor, a City event card, etc.  The pin symbol and the wording makes Renovation an enduring effect throughout the entire round. Whenever you build an upgrade, if the attraction is closed, you can build on it for half the marked coin price.

 


 

Studio Tour / Backlot Cleanup

Event

Notes

Backlot Cleanup

You can rearrange the closed attractions in your park even when you have all attraction spaces filled. The rule wording specifies that you can exchange positions of attractions, as well as moving attractions into empty attraction spaces, so it doesn't require an empty space as a "working" area. The combined effect is that you can place any attraction into any attraction space in your park, as long as the attractions being moved are closed.

Notes

You cannot use this billboard to reach 5 stars in order to build your Showcase super attraction, and then use the billboard's ability to demolish itself to build the Showcase.

At the time you proceed with the build, your park will have only 4 stars and fail the requirement for a super attraction.

Pod Person

Alien Staff Member

Illustration: Yorgo Tsalamanis

Theme:Quantity
B-movie:1

Notes

Even though the card is from the B-movie pack, this staff member includes the card type Alien, and can be searched up using the Advanced Tech event from the Alien theme pack. The staff member counts as Alien for the purposes of the Human Resistance blueprint.

Note that card type and theme pack are not the same thing - the Alien theme pack has many Alien items, but it does not have a monopoly on them.

+Cloning Lab

If you employ the Pod Person while you operate the Cloning Lab, you can use the Pod Person as a substitute target when the Alien Influence token would be applied to the newly cloned staff member. Since a Pod Person cannot have tokens placed on them, the rule fails, and you are left with a cloned staff member with no expiry date.

The Cloning Lab usually has the clones set on a 1-month lifespan, but if you can replace the operator with one more aligned with the goals of our alien friends, you can flip that switch to 'permanent'. Thanks Becky!

Acceptable Quality

Upgrade – Quality

Illustration: Joel Finch

Theme:Quantity
B-movie:2

Notes

The build requirement strip beside the price tag prevents this being built on or moved to an attraction that already has any other quality upgrade.

The ability rulebox prevents any other quality upgrade being built on or moved to this attraction.

Together, these rules ensure that an attraction cannot ever have any other quality upgrade while it has Acceptable Quality, no matter the order in which they are built.

Swapped the "Super attractions: 1" line with the "Total attractions: 5" line. 

We'd received questions about whether the super attractions are included in the attraction limit or not. The rulebook answered that, and it answers it even more emphatically now, but we also thought that putting the "Total attraction" limit last would help to make that clearer. Better to reprint only 6 cards now than change it later and need to reprint 10, or 14, or...

Big Al is a respectable businessman who for some reason is featured in the Gangster theme pack. He owns a wide range of businesses, including Waste Management, a Pizzeria, and employs various Building Contractors. His financial services include loans for up-and-coming entrepreneurs at generous rates, and occasionally helping to cover the outrageous Insurance Excess payments demanded by insurers. He will also take any pair of unwanted Showcase cards off your hands, at a more-than-fair price.
