Module Instructions

GMT Games 2017; Joel Toppen Design

1. Setups should be adjusted prior to play. Each player should hide their blocks and then re-adjust using available pieces in their Force Pool windows.

2. Cube draw pools are found in the "Game Tracks" window. Each draw is a random pull. Additional cubes found in "Markers" tray.

3. Forts are built into the map. Right click on Forts to generate Repair markers.

4. IF YOU ARE SIGNED IN AS SOLO: Right-click functions on air and artillery tiles will send to the Solitaire Player Display. The Hide blocks buttons will not function (these buttons only work when signed in as AP or CP and each button will only work for the player signed into that player seat). Note that there is no "Hide" function on blocks when signed in as Solo player. Instead there is a "Flip" function via right-click.


Known Bugs:

I have removed the "Hide Blocks" buttons from the module in version 1.2. I need to reprogram these as they are not working as intended and are confusing the heck out of users. In the meantime, manual hiding/flipping of blocks is really not that difficult. It will be a couple months before I will have time to revisit this module and perform the work necessary to make the shortcut buttons function as intended. Sorry about this!
