Finally got this one to the table today after having it on the shelf for a few years. The biggest hurdle has been the rules, which were not written by a native English speaker and are a bit difficult to discern the intent in places. I think I understand, but might have missed a few details.

For anybody interested, I strongly recommend that you play the basic game first. It is boring but crucial for understanding the nuances of stacking and movement/distance. Really. One big bit of distinction I throw out is that each spaceship is one pip on a d6.

Each player should have a distinct color of dice to play (18 for the basic game and 36 for the advanced game) and a set of 18/36 neutral dice be used by all players for tracking.

If there is local interest I will try and write up some clearer rules and give it another go. It does play well enough solitaire.

I'd be interested in some clearer rules. I have had this for a year now.

I am currently trying to figure out Dying Lights. Its rulebook is not that great, either, but the player aids help.

Local interest has been expressed. I cobbled together my understanding of how to play and have submitted it to BGG. If anybody has an interest in the game and knows how to play, please let me know what I missed or messed up.
