Rules (v1.2) for the game Parasprite Panic!, a fan-made board game based on the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cartoon. In particular, S1 E10: Swarm of the Century. All-ages appropriate, although small children could use some guidance. Fortunately, this is a cooperative game, so teamwork is not only allowed but expected! Older fans might wish to read ahead: an advanced set of rules is available which makes this game more strategic, dynamic, complex, and interesting.

shinesmancobalt, discarding parapsprites must mean, they'll return to the pool. Otherwise there isn't really enough time to save the poinies. 

My questions: 

1) When an outbreak happens or spreads to a place with a lead, the lead stays there and isn't dead, correct? 

2) If an outbreak spreads somewhere and stops (because there was just 1 or 2 parpaprites there or whatever), any player characters and revealed / carried ponies are wounded or killed, correct? 

3) Once a player character gets hit by an outbreak and wounded, she gets removed from the game, so if there are fewer than six players, they just pick another character, yes?

The rules say that Parasprites are "automatically discarded" when you get to the Eferfree Forest. Just to be clear, this means returned to the parasprite bag, yes? Because otherwise it means the game will end quicker.

I caught the feelings of Flash Point and Pandemic. Nice work! :)

I printed out the game and will try it out at the next meetup.

On a side note printing can get expensive. $42! Should of just stuck to cheap color printing instead of lamenting it on poster paper.

Oh wow, that's dedication! Yeah, I keep a regular stock of matboard, label paper, and laminating sheets for all my prototyping needs. Altogether, I'd estimate the materials cost is $10 if you use your own printer.

Sounds like a fun game! I think I will print it off and try it with some friends.

You should think about making a rule whereby players send you money to purchase Magic Shards which remove the parasprites (a la the Gameloft game). ;)

What a great idea! Why didn't I think of that? Deliberately crippling your games for profit is the wave of the future! Brilliant!

I like the new rules, but I have a couple suggestions.

1) I would suggest reducing the number of parasprites by 15. My math might be off, but this would account for the fact that each space can hold a maximum of 4 sprites instead of 6 (2 parasprites) and for the fact that each outbreak returns 3 sprites instead of 2 (13 parasprites). With so many sprites, it makes more sense to use multiple characters to hold sprites, rather than returning them to the forest.

2) It's possible for Pinkie to use 2 smile tokens. She could be the last one in the group to take her turn and the first one to take her turn the next round. Also, unless I'm misreading the rules, only 9 hives are used. Are the other 3 added to increase difficulty? I would make one hive token a Smile token.

I think you are correct on both counts. Both of these things will be changed in the next version. Thanks!

Quick question for the next revision of the rules. When changing characters at town hall, you say that you may switch to any character not in play for 1AP. But here's a hypothetical: Let's say two players want to switch characters with each other? In other words, we are playing a 6 player game. I am Pinkie and my friend is Applejack. Could we both travel to town hall at the same time and switch there, so that I am now Applejack and he is now Pinkie? Does this cost us both 1AP or just one of us? Also, would this type of switch cause Applejack to let escape any parasprites she was carrying, or would the player who is now Applejack simply inherit those parasprites? Thanks!
