Do you turn left in relation to your position to the board or to the ship itself.

For example, at the table I'm in the position opposite the starting tile, my boat is moving towards me. Left for the front of my boat from my perspective is right. So do I turn to my left or the ship's left.

Are their considerations for who sits where or being able to move around to see the board from a different perspective?

In relation to the ship.
So say you are facing South from your perspective and the first move is turn left. That means the ship turns right by your perspective. Left by the ships perspective.

When Im playing RoboDerby Express I rotate the turn dice to orient to the facing of the bot. Works here too.

As for moviong around to get a perspective. I'd say No simply because it could be used to try and spy someones rolls.

The orientation of the dice to the ship is great and simple idea that I will use.

Thanks!

Don't think of it as "turn left" but rather "rotate 90 degrees counterclockwise". That helps me anyways.

The ship rotates, regardless of where you are sitting.

But clockwise is still clockwise and counterclockwise is still counterclockwise.

Thanks for the idea of thinking clockwise or counterclockwise (deasil or widdershins, if you prefer). My question is: When I look at my ship's die, is the health number on the port (left / counterclockwise) side or the starboard (right / clockwise) side of the ship?
