Hi,

When calculating the final score, is the range of a planet (short/mid/long) based on the location of the planet or on the location of it's adjacent star?

Same question when the rulebook instructs us to "turn over all celestial bodies in the short range zone" at the beginning of the game.

Hi, it's the location of the PLANET that matters. Some stars are placed on the edge so that the number of planets in each area can change game by game.

All the best,
Mario

Thanks, in a way it makes more sense that way. We were a bit confused, however, by the rulebook's wording:
Quote:

2 points for each Planet located by a Mid-Range Star.
3 points for each Planet located by a Long-Range Star.

Yeah, the English rulebook is quite clear here that it's the star's location and not the planet. So this is wrong? Is that an official errata?

Mario, can you confirm that for scoring it is the location of the planet that matters and not the star as the English rules say?

(Played my first 4-player Sunday, game worked beautifully, although AP prone players have a hard time, which adds to the downtime).

I thought Mario had answered your Q when he capitalized the word PLANET and stressed the set up of observable planets as changing each game depending on how you arranged the celestial bodies around the stars.

He certainly did - I just wanted to know if it was an official errata to the English rule book.

I just picked up the game. I read the rules the same Fish.
The OP asked two questions and each has a different answer. Mario seemed to answer the question regarding setup.

However, I believe for scoring, range is based on the star's location, not the planet. At least that's how the rules read. Mario, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Great game!

Mario answered this question here.

He says it is the location of the planet that matters.
