The WARP SECTOR
Variant aims at creating balanced starting setups for player counts that normally result in asymmetrical layouts.SMALL WARP SPACE
There are several starting layouts that may be created for 7 player games with the help of one Large Warp Space
and one Small Warp Space
. These layouts are not completely symmetric, but should be more balanced than playing without the Warp Spaces in any case.
There are also several possible starting layouts for 8 player games that may be created with the help of two or more Small Warp Spaces. These layouts are also not completely symmetric, but should be more balanced than without the variant.
Using Warp Spaces will also help in creating these larger games without necessarily needing to add extra hex tiles to the game.
