HOW TO PLAY
Hire and play mercenaries:
Each turn, you will play one of your hired (drafted) Mercenary Cards next to another card in your command area and gain the number of units shown on the bottom left on the card, and put those units in your base.
Establish control of the planets:
Play the actions of the Mercenaries to gain power by deploying units on the planets, or gain reputation by invading planets.
Protect your mercenaries:
Place your Infantry units on the matching half-circles on your mercenaries to act as guards and protect them from actions such as Assassination, as well as play out the mercenary’s special skill action!
Keep unit efficiency:
After using some of your units for actions or deployment, you will not be able to use them for several turns, so manage your unit pool well to play more efficiently! Units are only available for use when they are in the Launch Pad space in your Base!
Mercenary Missions and scoring:
Finally, at the end of the game, you will gain additional Power from fulfilling the missions of your mercenary cards. You will score 2 additional power for each planet that you control that matches your mercenary mission symbol, so keep this in mind in order to score as much as you can at the end of the game! After calculating, the player with the most power is the Galactic Warlords and the winner!
