BGGB12A: Triskaidekaphobia is the 14th installment of the BGGB house rule games. PM shorthand for this game is 12A. Please remember to add it to each PM to me.

The title is derived from Ancient Greek and describes the fear of the number thirteen and the avoidance of its use.

Rules of the game

The general rules for my PBF games are list on my wiki user page.

We will be using the BGGB House Rules (v1.4).

Notes regarding the house rules:

As per the poll, we are playing with Assembly II.

Home system attacks in round 1 are allowed.

Antagonist and Infiltrator Prelims are more difficult to achieve (see [[1]]).

In addition, a custom rule regarding Arborec's racial tech Spore Acceleration (SpA) is in place:
SpA may be researched for a cost of 5 resources in addition to any tech acquired during the same round. So with tech primary you could get a free tech and SpA for 5 resources (or 2 techs + SpA for 0+5+8=13 res), with tech secondary any tech and SpA for 6+5=11 resources (or cheaper if using discounts from tech specialties). Neural Computing further reduces the cost by 2 resources as usual.
