Card TextEdit

Setup: Place obstacles as normal, 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 players' edges of the play area.

Special Rule: When a ship overlaps an obstacle and suffers 1 or more damage or is dealt 1 or more damage cards, the opposing fleet's owner gains 1 victory token.

End of Round: Starting with the second player and alternating, each player chooses 1 asteroid or debris field that does not have an objective token on it, and moves it to within distance 1-2 of its current location. Then, he places an objective token on that obstacle. An obstacle cannot be moved so that it overlaps a ship, squadron, or other obstacle. At the start of the next round, remove all objective tokens from the play area.

Victory Token: 15 pt.

Rules Clarification Edit

If an obstacle that is overlapped by a ship or squadron is moved, that ship or squadron remains in its current position after the obstacle is moved.

If an obstacle cannot be moved because it would overlap ships, squadrons, or other obstacles, the controlling player can leave it in place or rotate it.

A ship or squadron only resolves an obstacle’s effect when it overlaps that obstacle after moving.
