I was really surprised given the number of tokens, that there wasn't a "token guide" explaining each token and what it was somewhere in the rulebook.

I know there is this https://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/130823/full-color-cou... but that's just a bunch of token's.

Does anyone know if such a token guide exists?

I know that an official token guide doesn't exist.

I left the tokens intentionally vague because sometimes a token might represent different things.

Here is a quick summary of the tokens by appearance. I admit I am guessing about fighter vs. ship by the shape.

3 MedKit/Satellite
3 Blaster/Blue Fighter
3 Toolkit/Orange Fighter
3 Jetpack/Green Fighter
3 Grenade/Pink Nebula
3 Barrel/Planet
3 Barrel/Moon
3 Barrel/Star
3 +1 Arrow/Red Ship
3 +1 Arrow/Green Ship
3 +1 Arrow/Blue Ship
3 +1 Arrow/Station
3 On/Off
3 Prepared/Overwatch
6 Tech Circuit/Mine
6 Fire/Yellow Missile
6 Blue Vapor/Red Missile
6 Green Gas/Green Missile
6 Rocks/Blue Missile
6 L/M: Long Range/Multi Cannon
6 2x Broken/3x Used
Lots Broken/Used

I suspect the Blue Vapor/Green Gas/Rocks are supposed to be the Erg/Bio/Ore resources from the first version, and the Tech Circuit is the Hacked marker, but any of the tokens can be used for anything convenient.

I admit it is very convenient to use the Broken/used tokens for damage/luck counters as well - they work well for it, but if you do, you may run low. I may grab some of the 1st edition tokens to use for player powers in my campaign.

Thanks for making this list. It's really helpful. I've been going nuts trying to find the star base token as I didn't know what it looked like.
