Cetizens, here is the link to the final rulebook! I could not upload it to the files page due to its size. This is the version that will be in the game, which also includes the solo variant rules. Enjoy!

Hi Mike! I've just noted something strange while reading the rules today.

In the rules for moving through Cosmic Rays and Asteroid Fields it says I have to roll the dice and test my Shields and Computers.

But if I remember correctly, in the older version you tested Computers for Cosmic Rays, and Shields for Asteroid Fields, which feels logical to me. But in this version it is the other way around, Cosmic Rays->Shields and Asteroid Fields->Computers.

Have you guys changed it? If it is a mistake it is not so big, the rules are actually the same, just a change in the affected systems...

Really excited about the game, by the way! =P

That seems more logical to me. You need shields to block the cosmic rays, and computers to maneuver through the asteroids.

Hi Guilherme, thanks for your question and observation! We actually switched that mechanic on purpose, as it was suggested to us by several backers. As David mentioned, it was found to be more logical to use Shields to deflect cosmic energy; think of your Shields as gold reflecting infrared beams. The Computers are used to help you navigate around asteroids, like a program that can detect there motion as you move through them.

Anyway, thanks for catching that and glad you're excited about the game!

Cheers,

~Mike
