Ok - first games in last night. We managed to actually play with 10 - 4vs4 1 captain a side. What an awesome game.

Had one odd situation. One team (us) wanted to tractor then fire and the other team wanted to tractor. So we yell tractor! They, per the rules, say, we would also like to tractor. But we also want to fire. So - we just took turns. First we tractored, then they did, then we fired. Is this correct?

What about if we decided, after learning that they wanted to tractor, that we would actually like to fire first. Can we change our mind?

You alternate actions if you want to take a series of 'freeze' actions. Bottom of page 10 spells this out.

You can change your mind after you see the enemy action. No dawdling on your decisions, though! The intent is to keep things moving.

Thanks Geoff - if I remember correctly, the example on that page talks about each team doing a single freeze action. Our example was multiple actions. So we weren't sure if we should keep going back and forth.

Again - congrats on this game. Our group had a blast and some people didn't want to stop playing - ever.

Thanks Mike! I'll make sure we clarify that in the FAQ.

Those of you that like the game, please make sure to rate us here on BGG! And I guess those of you that didn't as well . Now that the game is widely available this is a critical time for momentum on our ranking.

Hey Geoff,
I heard you mention a FAQ a number of times throughout the forums, often the responses back in 2013. But I haven't seen a FAQ posted yet. Was it posted somewhere else, or still not finalized.

I haven't had a chance to put that together yet. I will get on it and hopefully get something posted within a few weeks.
