    1/12

    IntroductionTe winter has come bringing a rather short-lived truce between the Factions. In just a ew months anotherseries o violent conflicts will inevitably come into play and thus the Factions strengthen their positions

    With new production capabilities, under the leadership o new leaders and taking advantage o thegigantic nearby territory o Frozen City all parties are gearing up or spring. Afer all, winter sleep is just acover or the secretive armaments.

    Winter is not a stand-alone game. You need the 51st State or the New Era in order to play. Winter expansionmay be combined with each o these games, as well as with them both together. It introduces additional In-stant Cards, new Location Cards and Leaders, totally new Faction - exas, as well as some changes in the rulesthat enrich the overall gameplay experience.

    Tis rulebook presents the new rules and changes to the basic rules that Winter expansion brings along. Youcan find general changes described in the different rulebooks sections, as well as the ones concerning specificdetails dependent on the chosen combination: playing with the 51st State (p. 3) or with the New Era (p. 5).

    In the urther part you will find the description o new exas action (p 8), new cards (p. 8), as well as newsymbols and Profits (p. 9). Te way o combining Winter expansion with both the 51st State and the New Eraat the same time is explained at the end o this rulebook (p. 12).

    Note:Te otal number o Profits, e.g. Resources and Victory Points, is not limited in the game, so in

    the rare cases o lacking the sufficient amount o tokens provided with the game, players must find away to substitute this deficiency.

    It plays a triple role as itis used to count down the turnsin the game with Winter expan-sion, it indicates the Profits eachplayer receives in the Produc-tion phase of the following turnsand it can also serve as the firstplayers marker.

    x 1 Turn Die

    x 1Frozen City double-sided board

    x 5Faction Contacts Cards

    For players combining Winter expansion with the 51stState we have specially prepared the new, easy-to-useFaction Contacts Cards (1 for each Faction, also for Te-xas). They can be used as a replacement for the Perma-nent Contact Cards from the base game.

    Winter Cards to be used in the combination with the 51stState are marked with 51 in the lower left corner.

    If you combine Winter expansion withthe New Era, you wont need FactionContacts Cards mentioned above.

    You should put them back in the box they will not be used in the game.

    GoalJust as in the base game, the goal is to expand Factions power, that is to gain the highest number oVictory Points.

    However, when playing with Winter expansion, the game does not end with the turn in which one othe players manages to gather the certain number o Victory Points instead it lasts exactly 6 turns.Te player with the biggest number o Victory Points at the end o sixth round (afer adding up the

    gathered points) wins the game.ies are resolved ollowing the basic rules.

    Te Leader Cards should be separated into two piles o 6 randomcards each.

    Te remaining Location Cards and Instant Cards should beshuffled to orm the Draw deck and as in the base game eachplayer should be dealt 4 random cards.

    The Turn Sequence

    Phase I LookoutAt the beginning o the Lookout Phase, beore players start to takethe cards, the top card o each stack on the Frozen City board shouldbe ace-up. Tese ace-up cards are only available to the playersduring the Action phase o the current turn, which means each turnthere will be one Conquest Card, one Cooperation Card and two

    Leader Cards available in the Frozen City. Te way cards are acqu-ired rom the Frozen City is described in the Actions ExecutionPhase section (see below: Sending a Worker to the Frozen City).

    When playing with Winter expansion there is no limit tothe number o cards in players hand.

    Phase II - ProductionIn this phase, in addition to the production rom the Base Card, Agre-ements, Spoils and Locations, each player receives an additional Profitindicated by urn Die. Tose will be:

    1st turn Range 1 Incorporation token2nd turn Universal Resource3rd turn Card rom the Draw Deck4th turn Redevelopment token5th turn Worker6th turn 2 Workers

    Note! Victory Points rom Agreements and Spoils are placed on the BaseCard, while the Victory Points produced by Location Cards (e.g., SteelEagle, Engineers Guild) should be placed on these cards and the stan-

    dard three slots rule applies there. Tis means that when 3 Victory Pointstokens are lying on the card, the card ceases to produce the Victory Points.

    Phase III - Actions ExecutionTe Winter expansion introduces a new type o Action to perorm Sending a Worker to the Frozen City and changes the scoringo the Changing the Leader Action.

    Sending a Worker to the Frozen City

    A player may spend a Worker to get one o the available (ace-up) cardsin the Frozen City. In order to do so, the player discards one o their

    Workers and takes the chosen card into his hand. Tis kind o Actionmay be perormed more than once per turn, each time discarding oneo the players Workers.

    I there are no cards available (ace-up) in the Frozen City, this Actioncannot be executed.

    A detailed description o the new Leaders is presented in a urther

    section o this rulebook (see: New types o cards on page 8)Phase IV - Victory Points CountA game played with the Winter expansion lasts exactly 6 turns. Teplayer who has the greatest number o Victory Points at the end othe last turn, wins.

    Example of Leader Card

    Phase III - Actions ExecutionTe Winter expansion introduces new types o Actions to perorm:

    Sending a Worker to the Frozen CityA player may spend a Worker to get one o the available (ace-up)cards in the Frozen City. In order to do so, the player discards oneo their Workers and takes the chosen card into his hand.

    Tis kind o Action may be perormed more than once per turn,each time discarding one o the players Workers.

    I there are no cards available (ace-up) in the Frozen City, thisAction cannot be executed.

    Playing the Leader / Changing the Leader

    Te Winter expansion introduces a new kind o cards to Te NewEra: Leaders. Leaders have a Distance value o zero and thus aLeader can be played or ree. Its best to place the Leader card nextto the players Base Card. Each player may have only one Leader inplay at any given time. Te Leader in play is worth 1 Victory Point.

    In order to introduce a different Leader Card to the game, a playermust spend one Weapons Resource token and move their currentLeader to the Discard pile.

    Perorming the Changing the Leader Action brings no Victory Points.

    When a Leader is first played, the player receives (one-time only)

    Resources tokens marked on the Leader Card and places them on theLeader Card.

    Leader Cards have a Storage eature and thus these Resources are notdiscarded at the end o the turn (during Cleanup Phase) like other Re-sources in the game they remain on the Leader Card as long as theyare not used. When a Leader is replaced with a different one, Resourcesrom the rejected Leader Card are transerred to the Base Card. I theyare not used by the end o that turn, they are discarded. All the Leadersintroduced in Te Winter expansion reduce certain Location typesDistance during an Incorporation Action.

    A detailed description o the new Leaders are presented later in thisrulebook (see: New types o cards on page 8)

    Phase IV - Victory Points CountA game played with the Winter expansion lasts exactly 6 turns. Teplayer who has the greatest number o Victory Points at the end othe last turn, wins.

    ies are resolved under the existing basic rules.

    Keep in mind that Te Winter expansion introduces the LeaderCards in the Victory Points Count Phase a Leader is worth 1

    Victory Point.

    Phase V - CleanupAny remaining ace-up cards on the Frozen City board should bemoved to the Discard pile.

    New Faction: Texasexas is not just a place, its a state o mind a living western movie. Cowboystyle and philosophy o lie is common to all the people scattered over the areao thousands o square miles, both the city dwellers and armers. Tere aresome common eatures that most exans share: conservative belies, respector the amily, tradition and religion. Newcomers are greeted with a gun first,the questions are asked later.

    Factions special feature:Once per turn, the exas player may re--use one o the Actions rom their Faction Contacts Card that theyhave already used during this turn (Cooperation, Incorporation,Conquest or Redevelopment). Te cost to re-use an Action is thesame as the first use. o mark that an Action has been re-used, theplayer should place the right type o Resource on the proper fieldo their Faction Contacts Card, the one that is marked with Actionre-usage symbol .

    Note! When combining Winter with the 51stState only 4 Faction tokens should be used. Te

    3 remaining tokens are only used in case o com-bining Winter with Te New Era.

    New types of cardsNew LeadersNew Leaders, in contrast to those known rom the 51st State, dontprovide the possibility to acquire additional Victory Points.

    Teir special ability is to decrease a certain Location types Distanceby 1 during an Incorporation Action (or the sake o Cooperationor Conquest Actions the basic Locations Distance still applies), orexample, Lady Gagazoline decreases by 1 the Distance o Fuel typeLocations. Tus, i a player has a Fuel type Location with a Distance2 on his hand, he needs only Range 1 to Incorporate this Location.On the other hand, i a player wants to incorporate a Fuel type Loca-tion with Distance 1, he incorporates it or ree it is still treated asa normal Incorporation Action, but it doesnt require the use o anyResources or Contact Cards.

    New Instant Cards

    A new type o Instant Cards allows a player to draw the indicated num-ber o cards rom the Draw deck and choose one o them to take on hishand. Te remaining cards are moved to the Discard pile.

    News from the FrontNews rom the Front is a special type o Location Card. It is markedwith a brown field where other Location Cards have their standardblue Agreement Field (it is just like the Deensive Locations romTe New Era).

    I a player starts a cooperation with News rom the Front card, theypay the cost o connecting the card as an Agreement, taking the pro-per Action or discarding Cooperation tokens o a total Range that isequal to or greater than the Locations Distance.

    However, unlike other Agreements, News rom the Front card is notplaced under the Base Card, but under a previously incorporated Lo-cation Card that produces Victory Points. Place News rom the Frontunder the previously incorporated location so that its brown field isclearly visible. From that moment onwards, the Location that Newsrom the Front card is attached to has 2 additional slots or VictoryPoints.Example: I a player has Striners Factory with News rom the Front attached, then he may put up to5 Victory Points tokens on Striners Factory.

    I the Location that News rom the Front is attached to is Redevelo-ped, then both cards are moved to the Discard pile.

    I the Location that News rom the Front card is attached to is Conqueredby another player, the Location Card is turned ace down and remainsin play as Debris, and News rom the Front is moved to the Discard pile.

    Victory Points accumulated on the Location Card are transerred to theFaction Base Card as usual.

    Just as in the case o Base Cards, the rule o three cards under a Card also applies to Location Cards up to three cards with brown Agreement field may be placed under a given Location Card.

    Note! I News rom the Front card is incorporated as a Location to the players territory, the otherplayers cannot cooperate with it.
