The placards are good enough that they made me think I didn't need to browse the rules between plays. However, there are just a few details that I think should be added. Stuff that is easy to forget and which, once forgotten, the player might not think to look for in the rules:

- Scan: It'd be nice if there was a note about scanning at the end of turn. Maybe change "Perform one action per turn" to "One action per turn + scan" ... just enough to remind people the option exists.
- Recruit Withdraw: It be nice if the recruit action mentioned the withdraw option (where you can remove troops). This is very easy to forget.
- I think the description of blockaded should say 'occupied' planet instead of 'planet' to allude that this does not apply to un-occupied planets.
- Though it is intuitive, it'd be kind of nice if we could squeeze on the fact that killing a Battleship is worth 2 points since I think it is the only detail on scoring that is not on the placard.

thanks for listening
