Scarab Lords: Action Point Variant (2017-03-11)

This variant makes a few modifications to the rules in order to make the game easier to teach, allow the losing player to catch up and react to his opponent, allow to use the white cards in the base game without customizing decks and gives you more time to build your empire. On the other hand, the game is longer, probably around an hour, and it could be harder to win by supremacy, so the game is more likely to end by lack of cards.
