I am new to Cosmic Encounter - bought the game around a week ago, and instantly bought both expansions, even though I have only played it once. Really looking forward to experience all the aliens with my friends :-)
However, my question is regarding how much you are "allowed" to lie or reveal? For example;
- Are you allowed to say or reveal what kind of cards you are holding for other players? or are they a secret? If they are a secret, I guess it's totally ok to bluff?
- Are you allowed to make any deals in the 1 minute negotiation time? For example, do the laundry for a week? or always become an ally for the next two defence encounters? or are you only allowed to make deals concerning creating colonies on each other planets or trade cards?
How much are you allowed to lie about? to reveal for other players? and deal about?
Thanks for any answers!
