Kicker (×_) is a new card type introduced in Cosmic Incursion. Kickers with values from ×0 to ×3 can be found in the Cosmic Incursion reward deck. They can be played alongside encounter cards during the Planning phase, and are revealed along with encounter cards during the Reveal phase, when they multiply the value of the played cards.

When a Kicker is revealed along with an Attack card, it multiplies the card's value by the value of the kicker. For example, if a player plays a 10 and a ×2, the encounter card becomes a 20.

Kickers also affect negotiate cards. If one player were to play a  N  and a ×2 and the other were to play an attack card, the  N -playing player would lose as normal but would collect double compensation. If the kicker were negative (such as ×-1), the winner would get compensation from the loser (based on the loser's ships as always). If both players were to play negotiates and if the deal were to fail, the number of ships a player would have to lose would also be multiplied by the opponent's kicker.

Unique Kickers Edit

Special kickers appear in the Cosmic Dominion reward deck. These kickers have unique effects beyond multiplying attack values, compensation, and the penalty for a failed deal.

  • x–1 (Reverse Polarity)
    • Play facedown before encounter cards are selected. Multiplies all attack cards in the encounter. Does not affect compensation or failed deals.
  • x1 (Self Destruct)
    • Play facedown before encounter cards are selected. Both sides immediately lose the encounter and all involved ships go to the warp without compensation.
  • x2 (Duplicity)
    • Play facedown before encounter cards are selected. When your allies' ships leave the hyperspace gate, they go to the warp.
  • x2 (Jamming Signal)
    • Play facedown before encounter cards are selected. All other revealed kickers are canceled. No reinforcements may be played.
  • x4 (Give War a Chance)
    • Play facedown before encounter cards are selected. Does not affect compensation or failed deals.
