Notes

You can use a Park step action to demolish a single Park or Showcase card in your park, so if you wish to remove your replacement park entrance, you can do so.

Because its type is Park Entrance, and not Attraction or Upgrade, there is no card ability that can demolish a park entrance, whether replacement or otherwise.

Notes

The Bonus section can be completed by having no dinosaurs and thus no requirement for any particular number of Quality upgrades.

This is a legitimate reading of the current Bonus requirement, but it  represents an unintended loophole that the blueprint will almost certainly be adjusted to remove in future releases.

 

Note that the Required section cannot be completed without attractions, since a star total of 3 from Quality is required, and Quality cannot exist without an attraction for it to upgrade.

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.

Ankylosaurus

Upgrade – Dinosaur Animal

Notes

If the Ankylosaurus is the topmost upgrade on the attraction, then it demolishes itself. You are free to see this as unfortunately self-destructive, or as escape to freedom through a smashed enclosure, as you like.

 


 

Ceratosaurus

Upgrade – Dinosaur Animal

Illustration: Mr Cuddington

Theme:Quantity
Dinosaur:1

Notes

When a card rule asks you to do something, but another card says you cannot do it, the "cannot" rule always wins.

If you have a choice between moving the Ceratosaurus and demolishing it, but you cannot move it because the attraction it would otherwise move to cannot have upgrades added, for whatever reason, then you must choose the other alternative instead.

 


 

Deinonychus

Upgrade – Dinosaur Animal

Dinosaur:2

Notes

When a card rule asks you to do something, but another card says you cannot do it, the "cannot" rule always wins.

If you are told to move the Deinonychus, but the adjacent attraction cannot have upgrades added, for whatever reason, then the movement of the Deinonychus fails and it stays where it is.

Notes

Electrified Fence turns off the ability of all animal upgrades on the same attraction, even positive ones you may want to keep, such as the coin ability of the Penguins.

Guests don't want to view the cute animals through such a heavy fence, only the scary ones, so consider carefully whether you want to combine dinosaurs and other animals on the same attraction.

The same fences appear in the Event card Containment Failure and in the Dinosaur Theme card. As you can see, they are not always completely... effective.

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.
