Another player drew a card from space deck which caused a war and gave the player with the lowest points two extra cards. It said draw two cards, so I assume this meant that the player with the lowest points draws two cards from their draw pile into their hand giving them 7 cards to work with. If this is the case, suppose that player chose not to play any cards during the battle. They did not win the battle, but their ship was not destroyed (and remember it is not their turn currently). Can that player simply hold onto the seven cards until their turn and play them all as normal?
Also I can't remember the exact text now from that card, but what if there were multiple players tied for lowest points?
