HELP!!! I just got this game and am confused as to how to get the Catcher Ship out of port and/or move a Whale to the Endangered Species path. The booklet says that one or more whales must occupy the Endangered Species path before the Catcher Ship is moved, BUT it also says a whale moves onto the Endangered Species path if a Whale lands on (2 specific spaces) ONLY IF the Ship is out of the Whaling Port. These two items seem to cancel each other out and we just keep circling the outside, never using the inner circle or moving the Ship. HELP!!!

Moving the Catcher Ship

This only moves if you have a whale in Endangered Species. It moves when you roll a ship on one die and a number on the other and it advances that number of spaces. (If there is no whale in the Endangered Species space or track, then you don't move the ship - instead you move your whale as normal counting the ship as a 1.)


Whales moving to Endangered Species

1) roll two ships on the dice when your whale is on the regular outer track (if there are any whales already in Endangered Species when this happens then they are sent to the Extinction space)

2) being unable to pay the necessary survival points (so if you land on Radioactive Waste for example and can't afford to pay, you move your whale to Endangered Species)

3) getting a Dawn 'O Day or Father Neptune card that tells you to put your whale in Endangered Species

4) landing on the space that says to place your whale 4 spaces ahead of the Catcher Ship if it's out of port
