The Gods are an alien included in the privately published 1978 expansion by Alan Emrich. No History text or Flares for it are known.
You have the power to intervene. When you are not involved in a challenge as a player or an ally, you may take the hand of one of the two players and play a challenge card for him as he would normally play challenge cards (i.e., you get the benefit of his power if it affects the playing or use of challenge cards). Do not use in a two-player game. Do not use if your opponent is the Laser, or in a game with the Doppleganger.
The Gods power, like the Demon and Diplomat, lets him horn in on other people's challenges, which is inherently disruptive not to mention irritating. Mostly its use is purely as a spoiler - i.e., it lets him mess up another player's defense or attack.
