Cargo Ship Definition


Harry Wood (Event Partner)

Question about the term “Cargo Ship.” In the Cargo Ship definition on page 34, it says “One (1) of the four (4) goals where TEAMS can score MARTIAN ARTIFACTS or RADIOACTIVE ARTIFACTS during MATCH PLAY. Each ALLIANCE has two (2) available CARGO SHIPS.”

There is no definition for the goal. Are the Cargo Ships(goals) the same as the Landing Pads? I am looking at the diagrams on pages 10, 11, 13, 28, 29, and 30. None of these identify the Cargo Ship.

I’m new to this, so trying to understand.

Thanks!

The Game Manual has been updated to provide a better definition of the Cargo Ship.

CARGO SHIP One (1) of the four (4) goals located at the corners of the MARTIAN LANDSCAPE where TEAMS can score MARTIAN ARTIFACTS or RADIOACTIVE ARTIFACTS during MATCH PLAY. Each ALLIANCE has two (2) available CARGO SHIPS.

The Cargo ship is the name of the goal. There are no other goals other than the 4 Cargo ships.
