You have the power to Con. As a main player, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you
may declare a Con. Use this power to discard the card you played facedown and replace it with a “hot” card which you choose from the discard pile.
If the card you reveal is not an encounter card, it is treated as a 00 encounter card. After the “hot” card is revealed, it is removed from the game. Place the discard pile
next to you. Only you can look through the discard pile and shuffle it.
Remember that when there is an alien power conflict, offense goes first, then defense.
The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.
Possible New Expansion Set Game Rule - COSMIC STASIS
If a COSMIC QUAKE occurs (Cosmic Conflict Expansion) and there are not enough cards for all players to draw a new hand of 8 cards each, a COSMIC DIMINISHMENT is declared and all players draw 5 cards. If there are not enough cards for each player to get 5 cards, COSMIC STASIS is declared and the game ends in a universal draw.
