I understand the new rules, but what is the text above those rules talking about?

"This new Pirate Ship gives you the opportunity to collect a new color for your next games or to play a game with 5 players! When playing with 5 players, keep the same rules as if you were 4 players including the victory conditions. The two new optional rules included in this set will give you even more thrill playing Space Pirates."

Are they releasing a mini-expansion with another ship and a couple of rules? Or they just trying to say you can play this game with five players if you want. I don't get it...

arrrh I just got the game from a friend who got it in a discount bin, and think its kind of neat for what it is. Too bad no one above bothered to list the two new rules, since the link doesn't seem to bring them up anymore!

If anyone knows what they are, please put them here.

Thanks.

The rules are basically this:

You (on your turn as an attacker) move your ship next to a defender/opponents ship, making sure that the last template for movement touches the defenders plastic ship base.

You then move your ship(attacker) next to the opponent(defender) ship.

The assault phase now starts.

Both players play (if the defender wants to) an energy card face down.

Reveal both cards simultaneously.

The pirate with the highest value energy card wins the 'battle'.

If it is a draw the defender wins.

The energy cards which were played are now discarded back to the energy pump for later use.

The attacker (if successful) can now freely loot one of the CARGO items owned by the defender and take it for him/herself.

If the defending Pirate wins then NOTHING happens.

If the defender has ZERO cargo then NOTHING happens...

THERE IS ANOTHER RULE ABOUT TELEPORTING TOO:

Spend 5MC, once you have decided or not to refuel in a Pirate Base you have just landed in (Phase 4), you can teleport your Pirate Ship to another active Pirate Base if it is not fully occupied (Phase 5).
You HAVE to fly away from this base on your next turn. You cannot teleport on the consecutive turn.

I hope this helps.

cool

arrrh Thank you very, very much! With a handle like "Captain Murdercasket," you must be a Space Pirate too.
