Each player is dealt 5 cards including an Escape! card. Players can use these cards as well as cards drawn from the deck to outmaneuver their opponents. Use an Escape! card to avoid danger, a Carbon Freeze! card to stop most actions, or a Backwards! card to reverse the order of play. Players can also play other cards to create challenges for their rivals. For example, the Trust the Force card allows a player to take a card from someone else, the Scrambled Circuits! card means the draw deck gets shuffled, and the Dump the Cargo! card allows a player to tell an opponent of their choice to discard a card. Who will survive?
