MegaFactory

Robot:1

Notes

The building ability isn't limited to building upgrades only on the Megafactory - you can use it to build on any attraction in your park.

+ Renovation

Using Renovation before activating the Megafactory ability allows for half-price building on any closed attraction in your park. Note that closing the Megafactory itself will deactivate its ability.

 


 

Robopocalypse 2057

Super Attraction – Thrill Ride

Illustration: Mr Cuddington

Theme:Quantity
Robot:1

Notes

Once you find a suitable upgrade, you may build it, which means that you're not forced to build a Flagpole or other limiting upgrade you might draw, if you don't wish to. If you choose not to build, the card is unused and discarded along with the other revealed cards.

+ Alien Influence

You are allowed to build any upgrade that is priced in Alien Influence on the Robopocalypse, which satisfies the first part of the rule. However, upgrades priced in Alien Influence cannot be built for free, which means the second part of the rule fails, and the card is discarded.

No human technology can bypass the alien technological mastery, so there is an unfortunate misfire in this combination - one of the weaknesses of the Robopocalypse.

Updates

Reworded to close a loophole.

Previously "Once per Events step: You may reveal the top card of the park deck until you find an upgrade you are allowed to build on this ride. You may build it immediately for free, if possible. Discard any unused cards. Stop if you empty the deck."

The previous rule text has a loophole that doesn't specify where the upgrade you find must be built, so it can technically be built on any attraction, which means that the Robopocalypse can produce that same upgrade again next time without failing.

The new wording is specific that it must be built on "this attraction".

Card effect rewritten completely.

Previously "Injunction. Close all attractions that do not have any guest services upgrades."

For first-time players, this effect was shown to have a demoralising effect because it could close the entire park at once. The rewritten version leaves smaller attractions alone, and only targets large ones that don't yet have guest amenities, which limits the extent of the damage it can do.

Card effect rewritten completely.

Previously: "Inspection.  For each ride attraction in your park, demolish the upgrade built closest to the Attraction card."

This was another of the trio of cards that caused more rage than was intended. 

The rewritten version allows a choice between cash or demolition, and the player can retain the card to replace it later, so that the demolition effect doesn't completely destroy any hope of completing  blueprints.

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.

Updates

ShowHide

Changed the build restriction

Previously didn't allow any upgrades.

The previous "no upgrades" limit caused problems in the Pirate / Robot 2-player matchup. One of the blueprints calls for a food outlet with certain upgrades, and since this food outlet couldn't be upgraded, there was only one other. That turned what should have been an easy-enough blueprint into a difficult one, requiring a lot of inside knowledge of card counts, and not suitable for a first time 2-player game.

The altered version is still cheap, can now be upgraded, but retains the thematic limitation that it can't be made very good.

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.
