in this game, each player is given a fleet of 10 star-ships to conquer his opponents. for each planet you conquer, you get more production per turn.

specifically:

(1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8)

A 10 2 3 5 5 3 2 10

B 2 5 4 6 6 4 5 2

C 3 4 6 8 8 6 4 3

D 5 6 8 9 9 8 6 5

E 5 6 8 9 9 8 6 5

F 3 4 6 8 8 6 4 3

G 2 5 4 6 6 4 5 2

H 10 2 3 5 5 3 2 10

each player starts off in their corner. you can move as many ships as you desire, but to conquer a world, the amount you send must be higher than the number currently there. note that in the course of battle the number of ships you lose will be equivalent to the amount you fight. to make things interesting, you can only move like a chess knight.

after everyone has submitted their move, the game state will be updated. for every planet you control each one will get +2 ships. you can have multiple planets attack the same target.

an example first round...

red attacks B3 and C2 with 5 each.

blue attacks B6 and C7 with 6 and 4 respectively.

green attacks F2 with all 10.

purple attacks F7 with 7, and saves the remaining 3 for the next turn.

after production the game would look like this:

(1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8)

A 2 2 3 5 5 3 2 2

B 2 5 3 6 6 4 5 2

C 3 3 6 8 8 6 2 3

D 5 6 8 9 9 8 6 5

E 5 6 8 9 9 8 6 5

F 3 8 6 8 8 6 5 3

G 2 5 4 6 6 4 5 2

H 2 2 3 5 5 3 2 5

anyone interested?

by the way: i have a bunch of semi humorous achievements lined up that you can get as you play. they won't affect the game of course, but they will add an element of levity to the game, and I'll give the person that gets the most my coveted Gold Eagle General award :-).

Obviously gvg and I paid attention to the colors and I think we should get bonus ships.

I figured Panther was going to be red since he picked first position and orange is close to red I guess. Then Flame went and actually went red too... So who is blue? haha

Or maybe that is their way of communicating that they intend to form an alliance against us gvg.

I PM'd you a question. I suppose I could ask it here too.

You said "but to conquer a world, the amount you send must be higher than the number currently there"

In the example: "blue attacks B6 and C7 with 6 and 4 respectively."

Both B6 and C7 had 4 ships defending but you show that C7 was successful.

So is it > or >= to win a planet?

greater than or equal to, sorry. i should have clarified that. so the attacker has a slight advantage. also i should note that if a planet has 30 or more ships, it wont produce more.

What happens if more than one player attacks the same planet?

Just to double check. We are allowed to send ships to planets we control?

Are planets allowed to have more than 30 ships? We would just give up the production from the planet if we wanted to park say 100 ships on a planet?

Can we attack the same planet from multiple directions?

What would happen if I send 5 ships from F2 and 5 ships from G3 to E4 which has 9 ships. Will my attack be the combined 10?

yes attack will be combined 10, yes you can attack the same target from multiple planets. yes you can have more than 30 ships, yes you can send ships to planets you control (you have to in fact.)

if more than one player attacks the same planet, it goes to the player that attacked with more ships.

if two palyers attack the same planet with the same number of ships, i'll consider that a stalemate, both players lose all ships and neither controls the planet (planet doesn't change hands).

Sorry, I was away all day yesterday and was too tired last night to check lol

What happens if Player A attacks player B's planet at the same time as Player B moves more ships on to it? Who's move happens first?

PM coming shortly :D

basically the moves happen simultaneously, for example, if A attacks B with 15 ships, B has 10 ships at the planet but moves 6 ships there, whether A conquers first and then loses from the move, or B moves first and then A gets deflected, the end result is the same.

Ah ok, thanks :) PM really is coming shortly this time ;)

Edit - Can you move ships to anywhere? i.e not just to adjacent planets?

you can move ships to any planet you control, as long as the path is available.
