I was playing a game as The Claw lost night, and ended up dwindling down to two home colonies, losing my power.
My friends and I were trying to figure out what happens at this point. I had activated the claw three times, so I now had eight home planets, three that counted as foreign colonies. Nothing on the cards says that planets return if the power is lost, so I kept the planets in my home system. However, the idea that these stolen planets count as foreign colonies is written on the card, so we played it like I lost three foreign colonies when I lost my Claw power.
What are your thoughts on this situation?
