A polyadic space is a Hausdorff continuous image of some power of the one-point compactification of a discrete space. We prove a Ramsey-like property for polyadic spaces which for Boolean spaces can be stated as follows: every uncountable clopen collection contains an uncountable subcollection which is either linked or disjoint. One corollary is that $(ακ)^ω$ is not a universal preimage for uniform Eberlein compact spaces of weight at most κ, thus answering a question of Y. Benyamini, M. Rudin and M. Wage. Another consequence is that the property of being polyadic is not a regular closed hereditary property.
