I played a game of this the other night, and the one question we had was right at the beginning. I had rolled an energy symbol on one of the dice and used it to get two energdy form the home world since there is a black square there, but the rules only state that the energy comes from ships on the colonization track or on a planet's surface.
I just wanted to make sure we played that right. Thanks.
Yes, you played it right Bruce. Your galaxy mat is energy producing and "acts" as a planet that way. This will be worded better in the rules.
