How does Curse of Threes work?

March 18, 2015

 

The Skill 3 crew card Curse of Threes comes into play in an open hangar space, with an active Skill 2, or 3 crew member in play. Once the Curse is an active crew member it immediately is placed on any players deck face up with a d6 turned to the number 3, marking the amount of times at least one 3 must be rolled while attempting to draw a card. As soon as the card is on top of a players deck, any time this player would draw a card he/she instead will roll three d6 (six sided) dice and only draw a card if at least one of those values are a 3. Each time the player successfully rolls a 3 to draw a card, tick down the counter on the card and if the counter hits zero, discard Curse of Threes in the owners scrap heap.
