|Power of choice|
|Not controlled by destiny|
As the offense, when you draw a player's color from the destiny deck, you may have an encounter with that player in any system, not just his or her home system.
You may look at one other player's hand before deciding who to encounter.
The real power of the Will is not obvious at first glance. But he has the ability to attack (for instance) the Mind on the Oracle's planet. This means he can pick and choose who has the weakest hand, or weakest defenses. He can pick off bases from a player who has too many - an ability unique to him.
When the Will is in a game, often the game is prolonged, because it is simply more difficult to get to 5 colonies, with the Will targeting and knocking out your ships on other systems.
