  Abduction -- Rules Objective Players are Abductees aboard an alien spacecraft. Each attempts to escape by being the first to end histurn on an Exit card. Rules Default Any card that contradicts these rules takes precedence. Card Types ã Location cards (Holding Cell, Corridor, etc.) are placed to form a map of the alien craft. Each locationhas one or more openings (marked by lighted doorways). A Search Number is found in the lower righthand corner. Some location cards have Effects    or Powers    . Effects take place automatically whenindicated or needed. Powers are triggered by spending an action. ã Item cards (Grav Disk, Pulse Rifle, etc.) are labelled “Item” . Like Locations, Items have Powers and/orEffects. ã Event cards (Malfunction, Alien Patrol, No…Mine) are labelled “Event” . Game Pieces Abduction comes with game piece cards illustrating eight different Abductees. Cut the game piece cardsalong the dotted lines. Fold each piece along the solid line. Players Abduction is designed to be a four-player game. Shuffling together two Abduction decks allows all gamepieces to be used in an eight-player game. Starting the Game Place the Holding Cell Location card in the centre of the table. Each Abductee chooses a game pieceand places it on the Holding Cell. Get a six-sided die (D6).Shuffle the deck and deal each Abductee five cards . Place the remaining cards face down within reach ofeveryone to form the draw deck. A space should be left to the side of the draw deck for a discard pile. Thedealer is the fist Active Abductee . Game Play In her turn, the Active Abductee draws a hand up to five cards, and then takes up to three actions. Theother Abductees may play Event cards in response to each action. Game Turn Summary 1.Draw hand up to five cards.2.Perform action.3.Each non-Active Abductee, in clockwise order, may play one Event card.4.Repeat steps 2 and 3.5.Repeat steps 2 and 3. Play then passes to the left. A round is over when each Abductee has taken a turn. Player Actions Actions may be taken in any order and may be repeated, as long as no more than three actions are takenper turn. The following actions are possible:1. Move: The Active Abductee moves his counter one space.2. Search: The Active Abductee places an Item face down on the table and rolls a D6.  a.If the result is equal to or greater than the Search Number at the Abductee’s Location, thenthe Item is equipped (flipped over and placed in front of the Abductee).b.If the result is less than the Search Number, then the Item is unfound (placed face downunder the Location searched).c.Unfound Items may be searched for again if the Active Abductee has actions remaining.Unfound Items may also be searched for by other Abductees at that Location during their turn.d.At most an Abductee may have three equipped Items. Overburdened Abductees must discardequipped Items (placed face down under the Abductee’s Location) until they reach themaximum number allowed.3. Location: The Active Abductee places a Location card from her hand face-up on the table. Oneopening of the newly placed card must match up to an opening on a card already face-up on the table.The two attached openings form a portal between Locations that Abductees may use to move around.The other openings on the newly placed Location card (if any) may form other portals, may beunattached, or may match up next to a Location card side without an opening (this becomes a deadend). After placing a Location, other than an Exit , at least one unattached opening must remainsomewhere on the map.4. Exit: Locations have special placement rules. An Exit may be placed no closer than four cards fromthe Holding Cell (see diagram). In other words the Exit placer must be able to trace a path from thecentre of the Holding Cell to the centre of the Exit that passes through five portals. Where an Exit isbrought into play, but may not be played legally, the action ends and the Exit may be retained in thedrawing Abductee’s hand.5. Event: The Active Abductee plays an Event on himself or another Abductee.6. Power: The Active Abductee triggers the Power at his or her Location or of an equipped Item.7. Pass: The Active Abductee does nothing.8. Discard: The Active Abductee discards 1 card. Evading / Avoiding At certain times an Abductee will be called upon the Evade . All Evade tests have a target number. If theAbductee rolls a D6 equal to, or greater than, this target number he Evades successfully. Otherwise, theAbductee Blacks Out . Certain cards may be used to aid in an Evade test.An Abductee may also be entitled, or directed, to Avoid something. Avoiding is done like Evading, but noEvade test modifiers are applied. Blacks Out When an Abductee Blacks Out , her hand and any equipped Items are discarded. The Abductee’s gamepiece is returned to the Holding Cell and her turn ends. Draw Pile When the draw deck runs out, shuffle the discard pile and form a new draw deck. When an Event or ItemPower calls for cards to drawn and discarded, they are drawn from the top of the draw deck and placed onthe discard pile until the draw deck is extinguished, or until a specified card is drawn.If the draw deck is extinguished before the proper card is drawn, the Event ends. Shuffle the discard pileand form a new draw deck. Hull Decompression The Alien Exoskeleton Item or the Escape Hatch Event will allow an Abductee to survive the effects of Hull Decompression Event. A No Take Him! Event will not. The decompressed (flipped over) Location iscounted when using the Carbon Displacer Item.
