Abstract: WZ Sge-type dwarf novae often exhibit reflares after the end of the main outbursts. In particular, one of WZ Sge stars, EG Cnc, exhibited six consecutive mini-outbursts. Most unusual was that the star abruptly entered into a deep faint minimum after such frantic activities. We propose that this peculiar phenomenon may be understood in terms of viscosity decay in the cold disk.
