Special Rule: While a ship is attacking a ship, if the defender is beyond distance 1 of any obstacles and the defender does not have an objective token, the attacker can spend 1 die with any icon to assign an objective token to the defender.
While a ship with an objective token is defending, during the Resolve Attack Effects step, the attacker can discard that objective token to change 1 die to a face with an icon or 1 icon and no other icons. If the attacker belongs to the second player, it can change 1 die to a face with any icon. Then the attacker's owner gains 1 victory token.
Victory Token: 10 pts.
Rules Clarification Edit
When an attacker resolves the Special Rule effect to discard an objective token from the defender, they must change a die as specified for that player.
