I bought this game at Essen, and I think it's the hit of the show for me.

For buying at Essen, I got the two bonus cards, which seem like a lot of fun. However, I just found the rules to the Space Billiards card on the game's official website...

The official rules:

In turn, each player chooses a row of asteroids, and a target player, and rolls to see where the asteroids on that row hit the chosen player's ship.

The official rules (brutal version):

In turn, each player chooses a row of asteroids, and rolls to see where the asteroids on that row hit every player's ship.

The "noone told me there were special rules for this" extra-brutal version I was playing up until now:

Roll for every asteroid on the card, against every player.

So yes, if you got this game at Essen, watch out. The Space Billiards card isn't supposed to be quite as horrifically brutal as it might appear. I hear it's those damn Czechs trying to corner the space shipping market, and "forgetting" to let the competition know how to avoid the most perilous of asteroid belts.

Of course, thats us damn Czechs. devil

However, why the heck we put a link to our web directly on the Space Billiards card then?

You were clearly relying on your players being TOO DUMB!

You got me :-(

I love your game though.

We were also playing it this way the first time this card came up...

After reading the real rules for the card, I still prefer the Ironman variant.
