2.6.7 (Change) Each Robot colony upgrade card owned by a player allows that player to operate as many Robots as that player currently has population. Robots in excess of this limit may be purchased but may not be operated. Note that each manned Space Station, Planetary Cruiser or Moon Base increases the number of robots a player may operate (by the number of Robot upgrade cards that player owns).
6.1 (Change) Colony upgrade card setup varies with the number of players according to the Setup Chart (see Reference Sheet).
6.2 (Change) The number of victory points needed to roll D12+1 when determining available colony upgrade cards varies with the number of players in the game according to the Setup Chart (see Reference Sheet).
6.2 (Addition) If, during the first and second phases of the game (when rolling D4 and D10 to determine available colony upgrade cards), a turn begins with no upgrade cards available either for purchase or placement (all the upgrade cards available during the current game phase have been purchased by players), then the game automatically moves into the next phase on the next turn, regardless of the number of victory points actually acquired by any commander.
7.6 (Addition) First Turn Rules: On the first turn, each player receives 4 Ore and 2 Water cards. A player who makes no other purchases on that turn (only) may turn in all 6 cards for 1 Water factory, even if their values total to less than 20. We play with this one -- Brian
7.7 and 9.1 (Change) Discarding excess production cards takes place before Commander Actions. A player's Hand Capacity starts at 10 production cards (not 5). All production cards except Research and Microbiotics count towards Hand Capacity. We play with a variation on this one -- B
Optional Rule 12.1 (Mega-cards) is used. Note that mega-cards do count as 4 cards against Hand Capacity. Optional Rules 12.2, 12.3, 12.4, Limited Card Availability and Money are not used.
Note that the Reference Sheet *does* contains information pertaining to the Sequence of Play and Setup that is not found in the other two documents.
