Alternative Rules: 7+ players and limited vision/motility players for SSO


There are a few alternative ways of playing SSO not outlined in the Main Rules for various reasons, they are listed here.

7+ players: SSO is balanced in difficulty for 1-6 players and its intense narrative style will generally not suit very large groups or "party game" play. That said, there is no technical reason 7-12 players can not take part. Later expansions will allow sets to be combined to accommodate any number of players.

To play a single base set with 7+ players, deal each player 1 face up crew card during set up and pool the face down cards such that any player may unfreeze any crew member during a death phase provided there are still face down crew in the pool. Do not increase oxygen levels beyond the red 12 during set up. With increased crew the ease of completing missions while also generating extra oxygen means that extra oxygen during set up should not be necessary to maintain difficulty levels.
