that you will need for the alternative VERSUS scoring variant.
Simply print, stick them to some cardboard, cut them out and you're
the VERSUS variant each multi-symbol robot is worth ALL the symbols
for scoring instead of being allocated to just one Production Unit.
At the end of any auction in which a player wins a multi-symbol
robot, that player takes the chits that correspond to each symbol
on its card and places them face up in front of him or her. Players
do not allocate multi-symbol robots to Production Units, but will
use the chits instead.
a player has the opportunity to allocate one or more robot cards
to Production Units, that player may allocate a single chit instead
of any robot card that could have been allocated. Players may freely
mix the allocation of single symbol robot cards and chits to any
Production Unit. Each chit counts for scoring as if it were a robot
card. Players cannot subsequently move an allocated chit from one
Production Unit to another.
the end of the game count the points for the multi-symbol robot
cards, but do not allocate them to Production Units; use the chits
Other game rules remain the same as the original version.
