Hyper-Virus!! This and 'Surge' and every Corp player will wish he has more and better purge options...

Like it!! Tricky question: if I have hivemind with 1 virus token and 2 imps installed, do each of the imps get 1 extra token, or is it just 1 token on either one?

Hivemind gets the token. Either of the Imps can spend that token, but it is spent off of the Hivemind card (and goes away). If Hivemind had one and you spend it with one of your Imps, Hivemind now has has zero virus tokens on it: nothing more to spend, and it isn't helping anything else, since it's adding zero to all your other viruses.

 

There are ways to get virus tokens on to Hivemind, however, so explore those.

Does the virus token on Hivemind count as a strength bonus on Darwin? It says '...of card effects', I am not sure if strength boosting is a card effect.

Yes, it bumps Darwin.

Thanks. It seems the best way to use hivemind is with progenitor, since it keeps at least 1 virus token on it when purged. What about this case: I have 1 parasite installed and Darwin. The token on hivemind (with no progenitor) counts for both programs or do I choose which one to use it with? If I choose to use it on parasite, is that all? I mean, does the v.token gets used and hivemind is 'empty' now?

This is a very strong card. Multiplication can provide powerful numbers <3

It counts for both. The only time you have to choose one program with it is if you spend the token, as in the case of Imp, for example.

@adorablepython : It still multiplies because the counters apply to all virus cards. If you get three counters of this and have three mediums out, you access nine cards.
