Hi, this is probably a stupid question but, I just bought the game and want to be sure about it before playing tomorrow.:

Is there a limit to how many players can be in the same space, or do the action at that space? The rules says any space, so my guess is there's no limit. But after watching replayes and reading a couple of thread about ppl playing a forum version it seems people never land on the same space, unless its the sickbay or brig. Is that because its not allowed, or simply because the different char's is better off at different places?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the stupid question

Best Regards

Rastafa

There's no limit of players in the same space, but it's not a good strategy.
Beware that Zarek can't activate a location if someone else is there. (exception: Brig)

Unless a character's ability card / sheet specifically says they can't, characters are free to occupy and use the same spaces as each other.

Strategically, you are often better off spreading out so that the common card in the Leadership Deck - Executive Orders ("XO" on these forums) can be played to maximum effect. (The card allows 1 player to move and take an action, or as it is usually used, to take 2 actions without moving, which means you want characters in locations where they can take 2 actions in a row and have them both be useful.)

Usually you won't want to be in the same location as someone else, but one practical reason for 2 players to be in the same location is if there are Centurions on the Boarding Track. 2 players go into the Armory together and use Executive Order on each other to roll 4 times instead of 2.

Also, of course, Revealed Cylon players will often occupy the same space as each other because they don't have too many locations to choose from and they usually try to work together.
