The Moloch State Pack is an expansion to 51st State: Master Set, which adds a semi-cooperative experience.
It comes with 27 Moloch cards to be shuffled in the Base Set cards and 23 double-sided Machine cards.
Every round a number of new enemy Machines are deployed and threaten all the players. Players can fight the Machines using two new actions, by hacking or destroying them.
Hacking a Machine requires to pay the resources shown in the Machine’s code, and lets the player who does the action flip the Machine’s card and build it as their own location offering that player a new ability. Another way to fight a Machine is by destroying it, which requires spending Contact tokens equal to Machine’s defense level. It gives the player victory points.
If Machines are left in play, because no one hacked them or destroyed them, they will attack all the players in the Assault phase and deal damage specified on the Machine’s card. Players can choose to work together fighting the Machines or face the dangers alone.
