51st State: Master Set – Moloch. 51st State is a card game set in the Neuroshima universe, from Portal Games’ best-selling role-playing game. This new expansion brings Moloch—the harrowing, destructive force of Neuroshima—to the foreground of your playing experience. It is also a special addition to 2020, the Year of Moloch, a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the 51st State.
The Moloch expansion adds something special to the original mechanics you’re familiar with. New cards add Moloch’s Machines to attack and destroy you, but you’re not alone. This expansion adds a semi cooperative element for extra depth and replayability that allows players of 51st State to enjoy the game further, and keep them coming back for more.
Hacking a Machine requires to pay the resources indicated in the Machine’s code, and lets the player who does the action flip the Machine’s card and build it as their own location offering that player a new ability. Another way to fight a Machine is destroying it, which requires spending Contact tokens equal to Machine’s defense level. It brings the player victory points.
If Machines are left in play, because no one hacked them or destroyed them, they will attack all players in the Assault phase and deal damage specified on the Machine’s card. Players may choose to work together fighting the Machines or face the dangers alone.
