Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

How does that whole communication thing go down in the game? For example, when it's BLATANTLY obvious who's who, can you all openly plot and scheme? "Right, Ginger Mick, you go after Rusty, I'll rip Stinky Jim a new one." Compare maps etc.?

You should really just do it from the start, if you know what I mean.

I was reading the rules again and noticed the blurb on the final page which suggested the insults and accusations should fly from the off.

Just finished playing a 5 player game and we ruled that table talk was permitted short of calling out specific sector numbers. This gave folks opportunities to generally coordinate once revealed but also kept in the possibility of getting accidentally killed by a teammate who isn't tracking friends accurately.

Discussion is allowed, as long is it's public of course. Though I don't think comparing maps should be allowed, nor would it make any real difference anyway if you're just talking aloud anyway (and since you could share secret information by comparing maps, which isn't allowed).
