    NISEI Uprising Release Notes [NISEI Rules Team]

    What happens if Akhet has 3 or more hosted advancement tokens and gains additional subroutines?

    The additional subroutines can be broken normally. Akhet's ability only affects its printed subroutines.


Akhet is the newest "7 Wonders ice" (see also Hortum and Colossus) and looks like it will be a popular barrier for Weyland.

Three credits for a 2 sub barrier that etr is decent enough value as is. But at 5 strength this card becomes very expensive very fast. The "only one sub can be broken" clause (like on Afshar) makes it incredibly annoying to deal with unless it is bypassed. Giving the corp money and an advancement counter is nothing to sneeze at, especially since this combos perfectly with Builder of Nations. SSO will also love this card, since they can immediately bring it up to triple advanced with their ability.

Very solid card, one to watch out for.

(Uprising Booster Pack era)
Don't forget Mausolus in there too! Akhet brings the total number of Wonders Ice to 4. —

Fun fact: did you know that a fully loaded Akhet can act as a wincon? Yeah, if you stuff a City Works Project, a trap, or, hell, a Bio Vault behind two of them, it can clicklessly charge them up while also giving you creds to use (like, say, for traps). It's great fun.
