If at the end of the game you are loosing by exactly 2.5 points, you have 8 ships and you are controlling 9 areas, then you can put this token on the board, roll two dice, and if you roll 3 sixes than you win instead.
At least that's what I think.

My dad always would answer these kind of questions with, "It's for awhile."

I dont' understand your answers (poor English, I'm French).
Jokes apart, a real answer is possible...?

It was just an extra added during the kickstarter, for fun - it has no in-game function. You give it to someone who is taking too long on their turn.

The idea came from Snow Tails - a game about dog sled racing, which has a "Big Paws" (= big pause) token.

It fits the colonists hub perfectly, so I use it to block a space for a 3 player game.

Officially it has no use, but unofficially, yes, it can be used to snark at someone who is being slow. Or cover a Colonist Hub dock. Or as a pretty thick bookmark. The choice is yours!
