Reverse Hex Destiny Cards

Following the idea of Special Destiny Cards, I invented cards that corresponded
with each of the Reverse Hex Systems.
If you are playing a game with the Reverse Hexes, shuffle each of the
corresponding RH Destiny Cards into the Destiny Pile, along with whatever other
Special Destiny Cards you are using.
When one of the Reverse Hex cards comes up, follow the instructions. They work
very much like Flare cards. If you flip your own Hex, you follow the
instructions under Super. If it is another player's Hex, use the Wild
A player flipping their own hex may still cancel the flip as normal.
