Special Cards[edit]

Counter Salvo[edit]

The Counter Salvo is a common special card that has no prerequisites apart from a cost of 5 steel. It is a great addition to your combat sequence when you are underpowered and don't have enough action points to build a sequence matching your opponent's.

The Counter Salvo, when played, matches an opponent's longer combat sequence with a series of salvos. When you run out of cards in your sequence, instead of your opponent placing the remainder of his pack onto the winning pile, he has to face off against a salvo for each card. This prevents an opponent with a longer combat sequence from stuffing the last cards of their sequence with high-powered attacks.
