The Infest bonus is unambiguous I feel. I think it’s just hard to swallow that it says what it says.
Nice race that everybody will love to hate (or is it the contrary ?). Does the name come from ancient greek 'nomos' (lax) ?
Could you tell us the reference of the science article you are talking about, i am quite curious about epidemiology in general ;). It will be much appreciated, thank you.
The Infest Bonus is a bit unclear to me. Do I place (up to) one of each of those ships in (up to) each of my rival's pools? If they draw my ship, do they still build a ship of their own, or is that their build action wasted to help me? Did it cost them metal to build my ship?
Love the races and how different they all are. I really like the 'loathsome' weakness, too. If you're the sort of player who feels picked on if no one chooses you for stuff, playing this would take the sting out -- of course they didn't pick you! You're loathsome!
Nice race. I think the bonus needs a better ruling, and ideally a little deck of card (mini Americans) or a dice roll or something. This means, that I can add all 3 to rival pools? For example, X and Y are my rivals. I build a ship, then I add 1 Corvette and a Cruiser to Rival X, and a Destroyer to Rival Y?
