Setup: The second player places the gravity rift in the center of the setup area. Then, starting with the first player, the players alternate placing the remaining obstacles, excluding the station. Then the second player places the station in the setup area beyond distance 1 of all obstacles and beyond distance 5 of both player's edges.
End of Round: Starting with the second player and alternating, each player chooses 1 obstacle that does not have an objective token on it and moves it to within distance 1-2 of its current location toward the gravity rift (which cannot be chosen). Then that player places an objective token on that obstacle. When an obstacle touches the gravity rift, that obstacle is removed from the play area.
After all obstacles are moved, each player sums the command values of their ships at distance 1 of the station. The player with the highest total gains 1 victory token. Then remove all objectives tokens from the play area.
Victory Token: 20 pts.
Rules Clarification Edit
If an obstacle cannot be moved toward the gravity rift at all because it would overlap ships, squadrons, other obstacles, or tokens, that obstacle remains at its current position. The player moving the obstacle may still rotate it, as long as this follows rules for moving obstacles and the rules for this objective.
